Chuck Colson R.I.P.
The Rev. Billy Graham: "For more than 35 years, Chuck Colson, a former prisoner himself, has had a tremendous ministry reaching into prisons and jails with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. When I get to Heaven and see Chuck again, I believe I will also see many, many people there whose lives have been transformed because of the message he shared with them."
Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum: "Chuck was a patriot, who loved his country and loved serving his God, and we are all a little better off for having known him."
U.S. Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind.: "Having been given a second chance, Chuck Colson devoted his life to carrying the Christian message of second chances to those in prison, and he saw countless lives changed by his compassion and example."
New York Times-MSNBC: Charles W. Colson, who served as a political saboteur for President Richard M. Nixon, masterminded some of the dirty tricks that led to the president’s downfall, then emerged from prison to become an important evangelical leader, saying he had been “born again,” died Saturday. He was 80.
I liked Chuck Colson. I enjoyed his daily "Breakpoint" podcast, and I enjoyed hearing him speak several times on Christian Radio. Billy Graham said it best... There will be many people in Heaven due to the Holy Spirit's work through Chuck Colson. There is no more significant epitaph than that.
