On BreakPoint Radio, Eric says that despite the intense persecution, China is on the cusp to having the largest number of Christians. It's a very sad fact, but way too many people who claim to be Christians act as functional atheists says Eric in Talkative Faith. Have you seen the movie The Irreplacable Family? If not, Eric tells you why you should. Finally, if you haven't done so already, apply to become a Centurion. Eric says it's a vital program that teaches you how to be a front-line Christian.

Easter Sunday is a hard act to follow. “The strife is o’er, the battle done/Now is the Victor’s April_2014triumph won/He closed the gates of yawning hell/The bars from heaven’s high portals fell.” And, this hymn by Charles Wesley, “Christ the Lord is risen today. Alleluia!” Or this one, by William Chatterton Dix, sung to the melody of Hyfrydol: “Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!/His the scepter, His the throne;/Alleluia! His the triumph, His the victory alone.” What could possibly trump that? And so it is not surprising that the day after the Feast of the Resurrection, Easter Monday, is a liturgical letdown, a prosaic return to the quotidian.

If you're able, we'd sure like to see you come to the 2014 Wilberforce Weekend May 2-4.  Eric is speaking at the conference.

The movie "Noah" spurred a lot of conversation. Eric has something to say about the making of a movie as well as deciding to watch a movie or not. While most of us, naturally, try to avoid suffering, suffering is a perrenial problem.  Eric says we ought allow God to help us grow in Him. Eric relates a tragic case of a young women misusing her own body by making porn movies to fund college. Finally, Eric has something to say about the dangerous situation brewing in America. It's a very sad day when, what's now know as the gay mafia, is instrumental in getting someone forced to "retire" over his support of traditional marriage.

It happens fairly often.April_2014

I’ll be at the National Religious Broadcasters convention, or at an off-site meeting, and people will come up to say something like, “You know, even though Chuck Colson is gone, the Colson Center is really doing great things.”

There’s usually a hint of surprise in their voice. And why not? After all, Chuck went home to be with the Lord two years ago this month.  It wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect that the organization that bears his name might take a step backwards or might slow its pace.

But it hasn’t.

And, next to the grace of God, the main reason was Chuck himself. Or better yet, Chuck’s understanding of leadership.

On 100 Huntley Street, Eric's has an extended interview with actress and author Susan Isaacs about her book Angry Conversations With God.

BreakPoint Radio, Eric warns that the overuse of solitary confinement in prisons leads to mental health issues for the prisoner and also public health risks. Meanwhile, the millennial generation is pretty much unaffiliated with church. There is a way to correct it as Eric explains.

{actionbar} This week on BreakPoint, Eric says Jane Fonda is acknowledging the beauty of creation, and helping us see that our lives, like her's, are finite. Also on BreakPoint, Eric explores the reason why Christians shouldn't complain when we run up against unfairness and double standards. 

If you're near William Jessup University in Rocklin, California, you might be interested in attending an evening event on “Faith and Freedom in the Public Square” featuring Eric and Dennis Prager.

It’s all about inspiration.March_2014_a

Chuck Colson never stopped calling the Church to be the Church. But in today’s hyper-individualized, pressure-filled, increasingly anti-Christian culture, it seems it’s getting harder and harder for Christians to carry out that calling together.

Yet, hardships or no, the calling remains. Centurions Dean and my friend, theologian T. M. Moore, recently emailed me, reflecting on Luke 9:51-52, where Jesus has set his face to go to Jerusalem:

“Jesus has set His face to bring His Kingdom fully to earth at His coming, and He has sent us as His messengers to go before Him to make the world ready for His coming. We must proclaim His rule, explain His ways, order the kingdoms of this world to become the Kingdom of our God and of His Christ, and warn the world concerning what to expect when He returns. . . Many will not receive our message, but it is not our calling to condemn them. We must, however, warn them that the King is coming and explain to them what He expects and what He will be looking for upon His arrival. Our primary duty, as messengers charged with preparing for the Lord's coming, is to make sure that when He arrives all - as much as we have stewardship over - has been made ready to receive Him with the honor and acclamation He deserves.”

On BreakPoint Radio, Eric reminds people of the great series on ethics that Chuck and others did. If you didn't get a chance to see it, segments of it is featured on “Worldview from the Colson Center.” The program is hosted by Loretta Cooper, a Colson Center Centurion and a former ABC News anchor. Also, Eric explains there is a right and wrong way of watching the new movie "Son of God." Check out BreakPoint This Week where Eric and Roma Downey are a guest discussing the movie "The Son of God."

{actionbar}February_2014_T

If Jesus came back to the Middle East today, I think he would look a lot like the Reverend Canon Dr. Andrew White, the Anglican Chaplain in Iraq and Vicar of St. George’s Church. The “Vicar of Baghdad,” as he is called, carries out his work in one of the world’s most dangerous cities. He does the kinds of things every pastor does: He preaches, performs weddings, baptizes, offers communion, gives counsel and comfort to his congregation, makes mince pies for his church members at Christmas. He also presides at funerals—lots of funerals. One Sunday on his way to morning worship at the church, Canon White counted sixty dead bodies strung up on lampposts and discarded along the road, victims all of the latest round of post-invasion sectarian violence.

Who is Canon Andrew White, and what does he think he is doing in a place like that? He answered that question in the opening words of a speech he gave not long ago at the United States Institute of Peace in Washington. “I need to be perfectly honest with you,” he said. “I love Iraq more than any other place in the world.”

{actionbar} Just a reminder, Colson Center is hosing Dr. Ben Carson and Eric Metaxas at NRB February 24. If you can't go to NRB this time, Eric along with Joe Loconte and Greg Thornbury will be part of an intimate group of Colson Center and Prison Fellowship friends as together we explore the theme Reclaiming the Virtues: Human Flourishing in the 21st Century at the CS Lewis Foundation Oxbridge 2014 Conference. Please come to that once in a life-time event. 


On BreakPoint Radio, using embryonic stem cells for research might be at an end because of a scientific breakthrough. Eric explains.  A couple of sociologists are trumpeting from the rooftops--conservative Christianity has a detrimental affect on marriages. Eric says not so fast with the assertion. Lastly, the commodification of human life has hit an all-time high as infertile couples rent wombs. Leading people to treating other humans as machines, Eric maintains.
