Chuck Colson, Watergate figure turned evangelical, dead at 80

Sat, 21 Apr 2012 13:58:06 -0700 WASHINGTON He was described as the evil genius of the Nixon administration, and spent the better part of a year in prison for a Watergate-related conviction. His proclamations following his release that he was a new man, redeemed by his religious faith, were met with more than skepticism by those angered at the abuses he had perpetrated as one of Nixons hatchet men. http://dailyfreeman.com/articles/2012/04/21/news/doc4f931e266a1cf473756287.txt

    Chuck Colson Remains In Critical Condition? Update 4/19/2012 10:30 AM (Central) – Chuck Colson remains in critical condition

    Doctors attending to Prison Fellowship founder Chuck Colson have advised his family members to gather by his bedside.

    A notice from Prison Fellowship CEO Jim Liske states that “it appears our friend, brother and founder will soon be home with the Lord.” That statement comes after Colson’s condition took a decided turn for the worse on Tuesday, he adds.

    Colson underwent surgery more than two weeks ago to remove a pool of clotted blood on the surface of his brain. But while Liske says there had been “some hopeful signs” for Colson’s recovery, “it seems that God may be calling him home.”

    Liske adds that he believes that despite the dire situation, the ministry founder would urge those called to spread the gospel to “remain at your posts and do your duty — for the glory of God and His kingdom.” Colson is 80 years old.

    Did Kierkegaard Anticipate The Invention Of The Television? I heard Chuck Colson on a radio program quote a book that alluded to Soren Kierkegaard anticipating a “tube” that would enable many to see one event (i.e. broadcasting), and that such an invention would cause the masses to lose reason (or something like that). The book’s claim was that Kierkegaard anticipated the invention of the TV by 100 years. Does this have any credibility?

    • Curator says:

      I can’t judge whether or not Kierkegaard really envisaged and anticipated the invention of TV. But this quotation from his works suggests that he certainly might have. I believe that this must be the same quotation that Chuck Colson used: –

      “Suppose someone invented an instrument, a convenient little talking tube which, say, could be heard over the whole land…I wonder if the police would not forbid it, fearing that the whole country would become mentally deranged if it were used.”

    Didn’t Richard Nixon Use The Power Of His Office To Issue Plumbing Licenses From The Oval Office? Isn’t G. Gordon Liddy an unrepentant former plumber?

    And isn’t Charles (Chuck) Colson a repentant former plumber?

    If I remember correctly, they both got their plumbers licenses in the Oval Office.

    • Curator says:

      No. That was G. Gordon Liddy. Nixon just said, “Someone fix those leaks” and then it all went down hill from there.

    Why Do People Get Mad And Think That A Christian Is Forbiden To Judge? “Judge not lest you be judged. You therefore have no right to judge me when it comes to my sins!”

    The world often takes this verse out of context and uses it to accuse Christians of being “judgmental” when they speak of sin. In the context of the verse Jesus is telling His disciples not to judge one another, something the Bible condemns (Romans 14:10; James 4:11). In Luke 6:41,42 He speaks of seeing a speck in a brother’s eye. In John 7:24 He said, “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” If someone steals, lies, commits adultery or murder, etc., the Christian can make a (righteous) moral judgment and say that the actions were morally wrong, and that these sins will have eternal consequences. Chuck Colson said, “True tolerance is not a total lack of judgment. It’s knowing what should be tolerated—and refusing to tolerate that which shouldn’t.”

    What do you think?

    • Curator says:

      Yes very true…I always said righteous judgement I have the right to do..if done with such love it will cause a man to want to change..also look at your own mistakes and others mistakes wont seem near as bad,,lol..I find this to be true..I look at myself quite a bit..
