“I was deepening my understanding of what we call the cultural commission, the command to take dominion and bring righteousness to our culture.”
— Charles Colson
“Judeo-Christian revelation is not the negative influence secularists proclaim it to be. Rather, it is the taproot of our civilization.”
“I do not believe one can experience conversion or the fullness of the Christian life apart from the church.”
“God is dead not because He doesn’t exist, but because we live, play, procreate, govern, and die as though He doesn’t.”
“Today’s widespread relegation of religion to merely something people do only in the privacy of their homes or churches would have been unimaginable to the founders of the republic – even those who personally repudiated orthodox Christian faith.”
“Some labeled Jerry Falwell an American version of the Ayatollah Khomeni. People for the American Way, a group organized to counter the Moral Majority, launched a slick media campaign attaching the Nazi slur to the religious right.”
“When it comes to the culture, there’s no such thing as peaceful coexistence. If we’re not defending truth, fighting for Christian values in all of life, the truth will be sacrificed on the altar of mainstream secularism.”
“Christians should never have a political party. It is a huge mistake to become married to an ideology, because the greatest enemy of the gospel is ideology. Ideology is a man-made format of how the world ought to work, and Christians instead believed in the revealing truth Scripture.”
“Seventy-six percent of the American people say we have a spiritual problem in our country. That’s great, because now they understand the root of the problem is not that we haven’t passed enough laws; rather, the root of the problem is in terms of our social value system.”
“One of the most wonderful things about being a Christian is that I don’t ever get up in the morning and wonder if what I do matters. I live every day to the fullest because I can live it through Christ and I know no matter what I do today, I’m going to do something to advance the Kingdom of God.”
“The dynamism and freedom that characterizes the West is the product of Christianity’s reforming itself and moving forward culturally. The ascendancy of the West is the story of the difference that Christianity makes, and it’s a story we can’t let our culture forget.”
“The church does not draw people in; it sends them out.”
“It’s part of the buzz of the city among Christians. It wouldn’t surprise me that it got to George Bush. He reads, he picks stuff up, he talks to people. And he’s pretty serious about his own Christian beliefs.”
“What is true has never been a question to be decided by polls or popular opinion. Truth isn’t ‘democratic’ – it’s something that God has written into the very fabric of nature.”
“God uses prisons to train people for future roles of leadership or martyrdom.”
“Hostility to religion is having an effect. In 1963, the number of Americans who said that they believed the Bible is literally true was 65%. Today, the number has dropped to 32%.”
“Christians need to take the lead in educating people that children are gifts, as my autistic grandson most surely is. By going down the path we’re currently on, we might one day get rid of genetic diseases, but only at the cost of our own humanity.”
“That Solidarity was a religious movement no one, least of all the Soviets, can deny. In November 1981, Pravda denounced ‘religious fanaticism’ as a grave challenge to socialism; failure to contain it, Pravda said, was at the root of the problems in Poland.”
“I can work for the Lord in or out of prison.”
“The modernists started with the assumption that science is the only source of sure knowledge, that nature is all there is, and thus that morality is merely a human invention that can be changed to meet changing circumstances in an evolving world.”
