Chuck Colson-- He broke the mold of Christian Forgiveness
Chuck Colson broke the mold of modern Christian leaders.
After Watergate during the Nixon era, he confessed his sin and reformed his life and influenced a nation in the right direction.
Once he turned around he never stopped living the life of moral virtue and inspired thousands and perhaps millions to follow his example.
And he went to the poorest and most hated segments of society, mostly non-violent criminals in jail cells, and appealed to them personally and without condition to join him in the struggle to follow the narrow path.
He was a true political conservative defending moral values and giving young and old people an example to follow.
Here's more from Prison Fellowship:
"Evangelical Christianity lost one of its most eloquent and influential voices today with the death of Charles W. "Chuck" Colson. The Prison Fellowship and Colson Center for Christian Worldview founder died at 3:12 p.m. on Saturday from complications resulting from a brain hemorrhage. Colson was 80."
