Chuck Colson went on the air today pleading with Christians to enter the public square and speak out. This is a bold move on his part to engage
directly with listeners and to get your take on things. It is a challenge to the church. He says he will read all the comments and reply to selected ones -- either online or on the air.
From talking with Chuck about this, I know he is not just looking for people who agree with him to comment. It is time for vigorous, open discourse. Too many of us have been passive. We believe what we believe, but we haven't felt free or bold enough to get out and start talking publicly about it. Maybe it is shyness -- maybe fear of stirring up controversy -- or maybe, as Chuck sometimes says, we simply don't feel prepared to defend our faith.
What do you think? Most of you who will read this post are faithful Point readers. Are Christians too passive? Are we retreating from public confrontation? Feel free to comment here or comment on Chuck's new blog -- or both! We want to hear from YOU.
