Jacob writes, "In John's Gospel Jesus spoke of those who persecuted Jewish believers but who thought they were serving God while doing evil (John 16:2 -3). They so acted because they did not know Jesus or His Father. Chuck Colson, however, was a man who did evil, claimed to know Jesus and to be "Born Again", which was the title of his book about his claimed regeneration.
Colson was the lead author of the Evangelicals and Catholics Together agreement signed by Pat Robertson, Calvinistic author J. I. Packer, John Kent of The Church of The Nazarene and the late Bill Bright. The document accepted Catholicism as scripturally Christian without reference to the fact that while the true gospel teaches that the blood of Christ cleanses from all sin, in Roman Catholicism one atones for one’s own sin in purgatory and salvation is not by a second birth regeneration but by 'ex oper operato' sacramental rituals.
The idolatry of graven images and worshipping bread and wine as a transubstantiated reincarnation of Jesus Christ, killing him again in the mass and eating Him in an act of religious cannibalism meant nothing to Colson. The false Christ of the Eucharist, the necromancy of prayers to the dead, and the vampire-like consumption of blood - condemned by the apostles in The Book of Acts chapter 15 - were of no more consequence to Colson than was Rome's false gospel.
Colson just did not care. The Word of God meant nothing to Chuck Colson. His actions were in open defiance of it. If it did mean anything to him he would likely not have received the Templeton prize for religion. Neither would he have turned his prison ministry over to a Roman Catholic.
It was Colson whom Satan ordained to persuade Evangelicals to refrain from evangelizing Roman Catholics. As one with a Roman Catholic mother on her way to eternal hell, trusting in scapulars and the traditions of men instead of in the true gospel of Jesus for her salvation, I loathe the legacy of this deceiver who was mislead by the devil and inspired by Satan to mislead others. There have been few agents of hell more destructive to the cause of Christ than Chuck Colson. Roman Catholics need salvation and should be given the true gospel. I suggest those foolishly supportive of Colson ask former Catholics who have been saved.
Although a convicted criminal sent to prison for political corruption , Colson was an activist who tried to identify the Republican Party with Evangelical Christianity in his radio messages. Ronald Reagan's Hollywood divorce and remarriage, Nancy Reagan's advice to her husband acquired from the fortune tellers such as Jean Dixon she consulted, and George Bush placing a Koran which states that God has no Son, (a mark of antichrist according to 1 John) in the White House were irrelevant to Colson.
That President Eisenhower's Earl Warren-led Republican Supreme Court ordered God out of the classroom, that Nixon's Warren Berger Republican Supreme Court ordered God out of the maternity ward with Roe vs Wade, and that Reagan's pro-abortion Supreme court appointee Sandra Day O'Connor ordered God and the 10 Commandments out of the courtroom and judicial building cut no ice with Colson. Neither did O’Connor writing the court’s decision, based on foreign precedent, to outlaw the Texas anti-sodomy law which opened the door for the national surge to same sex marriage: it all evaded Colson's criticism. To Colson, religion was about politics. He had been a liar for a corrupt Nixon White House and was transformed into a liar for a corrupt, pedophile-protecting Vatican.
Colson also endorsed the book Ecumenical Jihad by ex- Evangelical Peter Kreeft which urges ecumenical union with Islam to morally redeem society. Colson had an antichrist spirit and he served Satan powerfully. We shall all appear before the judgment seat of Christ and it is not for me to judge Chuck Colson. It is, however, for all of us to judge his doctrines and his ventures on the basis of God's Word. In doing so it is evident that the deeds and doctrines of Chuck Colson emanated straight from the pit of hell.
Without doubt there will be a chorus of ignorant religious cranks taking offense at these remarks concerning Chuck Colson, oblivious to the fact that everything I have written concerning Colson is irrefutably true. My only response to their silly religious rhetoric is to deal with the established facts - or don't deal at all.
