Heroes or Scapegoats? - BreakPoint

John Stonestreet and Shane Morris talk about how Christians are responding to the coronavirus–and how even heroic efforts like those of Samaritan’s Purse setting up a field hospital in New York City are being criticized by those with, shall we say, a certain bias against Christianity.

John and Shane also discuss at length the issue of church and state: Can states force churches to close? Are there historical precedents? When can — and should — even the Church obey the state in times of crisis, and how to we ensure that our freedom to assemble remains just that–freedom?

The Image of God Revealed - BreakPoint

A grave concern for the medical community continues to be the shortage of ventilators, which are vital for patients with severe respiratory issues from COVID-19. Healthcare systems around the world, including in the U.S. lack the supply needed to treat this many people at once.

Enter the engineers and medical professionals from MIT, who announced last week that they’ve come up with a design for a makeshift ventilator built from simple materials that most hospitals already have on hand. Even better, the researchers posted their designs online to be used for free.

These kinds of stories bring to mind Psalms 8 and 139. God should be praised for creating humans in His likeness, and giving us such amazing imagination and ingenuity and, at times, the generosity to use our discoveries to serve and bless others. Lacking such engineering skills myself, I’m especially grateful for others who have them; and are willing to serve their neighbors with them.

For others it means they aren’t part of an organized religious community.

Say No to Abortion During Pandemic - BreakPoint

Across the country, states have banned elective surgeries in order to preserve resources for Coronavirus victims and reduce risk of exposure and transmission.

Of course, each state determines what is medically necessary and what is not. Texas, for example, joined Ohio, Alabama, and Louisiana in adding almost all abortions to the list of medically unnecessary procedures for the duration of the pandemic.

In Ohio, some abortion clinics responded by announcing plans to ignore Governor DeWine’s directive and perform abortions anyway, something that also seems to be happening in Louisiana, while the Texas attorney general stated that “those who violate the governor’s order will be met with the full force of the law.” Then federal judges blocked the orders in Texas, Alabama, and Ohio.

The struggle to defend life continues, even during the Coronavirus. Know what’s happening in your state and talk to your friends and neighbors about it. Our video, “Is Abortion Health Care?” can help.

Your Church Needs You - BreakPoint

As the Coronavirus pandemic drags on, and our time inside increases, churches are finding creative ways to stay in touch with members. Congregations are adapting and innovating, moving not just Sunday services but kids’ ministries, books clubs, youth groups, and small groups online.

But here’s a wise word of caution: Don’t think that church can now really be done online. We may be tempted to replace our local church with a video of our favorite celebrity pastor on Sunday mornings, or maybe with our favorite Christian podcast, now during the pandemic or, even worse, once we are free to go outside again.

If ever there were a time to laser-focus on our local communities, especially our local church, it’s now. Remember, #quarantine won’t last forever. Don’t neglect your local church family. Stay connected. Check in with your pastor and other church members. God willing, we will be back in those pews soon enough.

Worldview Essentials: Grounding our Faith in the Bible - BreakPoint

Just last week the Colson Center held a five-day online crash-course on Christian worldview. Our Wednesday guest was Christian apologist Sean McDowell, who spoke on the reliability of Scripture. Can we trust the Bible?

Sean tackles the question from three angles: First, the character test. Do the authors of the Bible write with honesty? Are they seeking to tell the truth? Second, the copy test: What proof do we have that the Bible we know today is substantially the same as its earliest manuscripts? Third, the corroboration test. What ancient sources can we find that corroborate much of what the Bible says?

View Our Special “Crash Course” series on Culture and Worldview

Sean’s was one of five talks given last week during our online “Crash Course” on Christian Worldview and Culture. Brett Kunkle and I led the other four sessions on Why Worldview Matters, Why Culture Matters, Issues with Technology, and the legacy of the sexual revolution.

All those sessions are available to you, for free. All you have to do is register here. Once you do, we’ll send you links to the 5 sessions along with numerous resources on the topics.

Christianity, Technology, and Grief in our Viral Moment - BreakPoint

I have to make a confession. A quiet unease has been lurking in my soul with every virtual worship service I participate in. It’s a dissonance between the reality of the global pandemic and my (subconscious?) attempts, via technology, to keep my life as “normal” as possible, in the realms where such false normalcy is possible: my emotions, my relationships, and my spiritual life.

Reach Out and Bless Someone—with Your Voice - BreakPoint

Yes, technology can be bad for us. We spend too much time staring at our glowing rectangles, sometimes even at terrible things.

But now, during this pandemic, perhaps it’s possible to despoil our Egyptian captors and put this technology to good use. Specifically, did you know that your smart phone is, well, an actual “phone”? You can actually call someone and talk to them!

Sure texting, email, and messaging are keeping businesses going at this time, but they’re not the building blocks of community. We were made for connection. Now that face-to-face contact is limited to impossible, bless someone with your voice.

Or, even better, change out of your pajamas and video chat- give someone the gift of your voice and of seeing your face.

Our technologies can both connect us and isolate us. The good news is pathogens cannot be transmitted by phone. So, practice physical distancing, but not social isolation. Use that tool in your hand “to reach out and touch someone” right now.

Practice physical distancing, but not social isolation.

  • Offer incisive content that cuts through the fog of relativism and the news cycle with truth and compassion.

  • Provide training that unlocks every believer's calling to restore culture.

  • Resource and activate a movement of Christians committed to cultural restoration.
  • Why We Exist

    The world is confusing. The culture around us is broken. The consequences of the bad ideas deeply embedded in the way people think and live are devastating. Swimming against the cultural currents has a great cost. The easy choice for Christians is to try to keep their heads down, blend in, stay silent, or even withdraw from the controversial conversations.

    But there is a better way.

    Built on a foundation decades in the making, The Colson Center is the acknowledged hub of the worldview movement. At our core is the idea idea that there is no square inch of human existence over which Christ does not cry, "Mine!" Christians have been used by God to transform some of the darkest moments in human history, because men and women of faith knew God had a bigger plan in mind, and stood up for the truth.

    The Colson Center brings clarity and equips ordinary people to be agents of God’s restoration. Whether what you need is a daily dose of sanity or in-depth training to make a profound difference in your corner of the world, the Colson Center provides solid, unique resources and training. The result is a rapidly growing wave of believers motivated and mobilized to be courageous catalysts for God’s work in the world.

    What We Do


  • The world is confusing. We bring clarity. Founded by Chuck Colson (1931 – 2012) in 1991 as a daily radio broadcast, BreakPoint provides a Christian perspective on today’s news and trends via radio, podcasts, video, and print.

  • Our culture is broken. We equip restorers. Throughout the year, we allow people to delve deeper into the most difficult cultural questions, and meet real people who are bringing light to the darkness. Our annual Wilberforce Weekend in Washington, D.C. is a gathering of heroes, where nearly a thousand people gather to be inspired and equipped for cultural restoration. Regular webinars, short courses, local speaking events, and other opportunities allow people to gain mastery of tricky topics and bring leadership to their families, churches, workplaces, and communities.

  • Christians are shaped by culture. We prepare them to shape it. The Colson Fellows Program is a nine-month long, intensive worldview course with readings, webinars, and residencies that prepare Christians to become leaders for Kingdom change. It’s designed for CEOs, teachers, pastors, young professionals, stay-at-home moms—anyone who wants to be empowered to be an effective advocate for God in their sphere of influence.

    “WE’VE ALL BEEN EXPOSED a poem by Sarah Bourns We’ve all been exposed. Not necessarily to the virus (maybe…who even knows). We’ve all been exposed BY the virus. Corona is exposing us. Exposing our weak sides. Exposing our dark sides. Exposing what normally lays far beneath the surface of our souls, hidden by the invisible masks we wear. Now exposed by the paper masks we can’t hide far enough behind. Corona is exposing our addiction to comfort. Our obsession with control. Our compulsion to hoard. Our protection of self. Corona is peeling back our layers. Tearing down our walls. Revealing our illusions. Leveling our best-laid plans. Corona is exposing the gods we worship: Our health Our hurry Our sense of security. Our favorite lies Our secret lusts Our misplaced trust. Corona is calling everything into question: What is the church without a building? What is my worth without an income? How do we plan without certainty? How do we love despite risk? Corona is exposing me. My mindless numbing My endless scrolling My careless words My fragile nerves. We’ve all been exposed. Our junk laid bare. Our fears made known. The band-aid torn. The masquerade done. So what now? What’s left? Clean hands Clear eyes Tender hearts. What Corona reveals, God can heal. Come Lord Jesus. Have mercy on us.”
    Is the Wilberforce weekend in May still going to take place?

    “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Samuel 1:7 Lord I pray: - Our nation would repent and turn completely back to your ways starting with your church. - People would be protected, healed, and the coronavirus-19 would be eliminated once and for all. - That all scheduled abortions (~15,000 unborn babies this week) would be stopped once and for all. - Our healthcare workers would be protected from any sickness - That people will trust you and end the paranoia. - Pray for our President and his Administration. - Pray for our local and state leaders. - Our leaders would be fully submitted to you and your ways and lead accordingly. - Those intent on evil would be exposed and punished. - Comfort and help to the many losing and/or will lose their jobs due to the local government forced shutdowns, curtailments. - Greatest - The church would be fearless and a help to a scared world; promote your Biblical Truth in the public square! Lord thank you for everything! We praise you in the good times and in the bad times! We repent and seek your righteousness and holiness! Thanks for loving us, giving us mercy, and leading us. In Jesus name I pray! Amen.
    “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” - Romans 13:1 Focusing on this passage tonight. Why did God install Lenin and Stalin in Russia? Why did God install Hitler in Germany? Why did God install Mao in China? Why did God install Castro in Cuba? Why did God install Amin in Uganda? Why did God install Kim Il Sam in North Korea? Why did God install Pot in Cambodia? Why did God install Ortega in Nicaragua? Why did God install Hussein in Iraq? Why did God install Ayatollah in Iran? Why did God install Obama in the US? Why did God install Chavez in Venezuela? Why did God install Erdogan in Turkey? Why did God install Trudeau in Canada? Why did God install Mugabe in Zimbabwe? Why did God install ANC in South Africa? On and on. Why would God install the above? In verse 3 it says “For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority?”. Could it be that God didn’t install these as they were a terror to good behavior but they came to power because there were no Christians in the public square? Or God did install the above to punish “his people”? Thoughts on why God would put evil leaders (who hated Him) in control?
    “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.” - Proverbs 28:1 So if “Christians” are indeed cowards, then they are wicked! Righteous are not cowards! Church are you righteous or wicked phonies?!! The Public Square will confirm our true heart position! GO!
    “Hate evil, and love good, and establish justice in the gate; it may be that the LORD, the God of hosts, will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.” - Amos 5:15 Last night at the jail, I didn’t teach on what I was scheduled to discuss but felt led by God to talk about the issue of “gates”. A lot of things happened at the gate; entrance to the city, commercial activity, social events/gatherings, etc. and the city at large interacted around the gate. A Jewish interpretation; “Gates’ in biblical Israel weren’t just a doorway into the city. They were where g cried out and kings judged, and people met, like in the ancient city of Dan.” When it came to this scripture, the Lord wants His people to: 1. HATE EVIL (their own sin first, repent of it and then hate evil in the public square). Yes, called His people to be “haters” of evil. 2. LOVE GOOD (God and all things He created for His glory) 3. ESTABLISH JUSTICE at the gate (declare God’s word and ways in the public square). Yet there was another story related to a “gate” and that was about Lot in Genesis 19:1. “The two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom.” In this story, Lot was focusing away from his community; sinful. He clearly recognized the angels yet he was “sitting at the gate” instead of establishing justice. Long story that I can preach later, yet the situation emulates what most Christians are doing today. Their backs face the rejected, sinful world instead of declaring God’s word! Like Lot, we are waiting for God at the expense of the world being destroyed. Lot knew what was right but the community rejected him and he couldn’t influence 9 other people to save it. (His “sitting” sinfulness cost him his own family and his descendants became the enemies of his uncle’s descendants)😥 I would love to preach the fullness of this message at places that God keeps speaking to me about. We must “establish justice” at the gate and we must love good and hate evil. Maybe we Christians don’t get involved in the public square because we have twisted in our hearts what we truly love and hate? May God be praised at the GATES! God bless!
    24 Jehovah bless thee, and keep thee: 25 Jehovah make his face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: 26 Jehovah lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
