I was unable to read the article, but my interest was definately peaked. I came upon his Manhattan Declaration and was left feeling profoundly sad. It seems as though he is very much the same person as he was prior to his incarceration, perhaps even more strident and emboldened now that he believes he has a Biblical imperative. He is a very complicated character. I have to hope his prison ministry/fellowship bears fruit for the prisoners and I admire his dedication to this growing population who are forgotten by most of society. I believe the fact that the Manhattan Declaration glaringly avoids the imperative to minister to prisoners brings into question Mr. Colson's willingness to truly understand Jesus' teaching. Mr. Colson's arrogance to believe he understands God's will is disheartening. Mr. Colson has a human agenda, not a divine one.
