Colson Center

Helping you live and defend the Christian worldview.

Founded by Chuck Colson in 1999, the Colson Center helps everyday Christians live and defend the Christian worldview through the proclamation of Truth, leadership training, and collaboration with like-minded organizations

Our on-radio and online cultural commentaries help believers apply sound Christian worldview thinking to key issues of the day. Colson Center programs include “BreakPoint” with Eric Metaxas and Colson Center President John Stonestreet. Stonestreet also hosts a one-minute daily radio commentary, “The Point,” and a half-hour weekend interview show known as “BreakPoint This Week.”

Our Colson Fellows program (formerly the Centurions Program) teaches and mentors Christians to become leaders in their spheres of influence through a year-long, intensive worldview course.

The Colson Center is also committed to building and resourcing a movement of Christians and Christian organizations across the denominational spectrum to advance the Kingdom of God. We partner with groups and individuals focusing on the critical issues of our day, such as the sanctity of human life, the defense of marriage, the protection of religious liberty, and the restoration of virtue and ethics to public life.

The Point: Face-To-Facebook

breakpoint.org

I hope this shows up in people’s newsfeeds.

It’s not rocket science: The more time you spend on social media, the less time you have for healthier activities. Another study in the American Journal of Epidemiology backs that up.

Researchers from Yale and University of California followed the mental and physical health, and Facebook usage, of more than 5,000 people over two years. They then surveyed them about their social lives, health and overall satisfaction.

The result? Time spent on Facebook was “tightly linked” to poor physical and psychological health, as well as lower overall satisfaction with life. Conversely, time spent in real-world, face-to-face interaction correlated with better health both mentally and physically.

“The more times you click ‘like’,” writes Susan Pinker in the Wall Street Journal, “the worse you feel.”

Christians have an explanation for this: We’re embodied creatures, not just minds. Online interactions—even good ones—can’t replace real time in the presence of others. So take a break from social media: your health might depend on it.

BreakPoint: Saved by an Atheist

breakpoint.org

breakpoint.org The story of one rising academic star who realized that the worldview of atheism just can’t account for what we know: That humans have worth, and that life has meaning.

The Point: "Transgender": A Word that Defies Reality

breakpoint.org

Words make thought possible—for good and bad.

Over at Public Discourse, Andrew Walker recently made an interesting suggestion: Christian should, whenever possible, avoid using the term “transgender.”

Our worldview can accept the reality of gender dysphoria—that there are those who experience feelings of confusion about their gender. But we can’t accept that people can “trans-ition”—literally move from one gender to the other, which Walker rightly calls a “metaphysical impossibility.”

The very word “transgender” implies that our self is distinct and separable from our bodies. By using it, we implicitly accept that distinction.

And the new phenomenon of #transgender “birthdays”—honoring the date someone “transitioned”—is, according to Walker, a kind of gnostic “pseudo-resurrection.”

All of this, then, is just not compatible with the Christian worldview and it’s “divinely-orchestrated binaries” like heaven and earth, day and night, male and female.

God created the world with words. But “transgender” is a word trying to re-create reality.
