BP This Week: Chuck Colson, Christian Worldview, and Religious Freedom

Five years ago this week, Chuck Colson went to be with the Lord. John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer reflect on his legacy as a minister to prisoners and as a teacher of worldview. That last concept is particularly important right now. The very idea of Christian worldview is under attack in the New York Times by a scholar who calls it a refuge for alternative religious realities that insulate believers from the facts. And with another challenge before the Supreme Court about the place of churches in society, it’s more important than ever that we understand what Chuck and other worldview thinkers taught: that everyone approaches life with a set of beliefs. No one is on truly neutral ground.
