The Response

I applaud the “Call for Intergenerational Justice” and congratulate those who have developed it and signed it. Because there were two items that run contrary to positions I have taken publicly, I felt that I myself could not sign it. However, I agree with the intent and purpose of the statement. It is just the kind of statement Christians should be making to, as the “Call” states, “reform our culture of debt.”

–Chuck Colson

Update: Chuck Colson urges listeners on his widely heard radio program “Break Point” tosign ESA’s Call for Intergenerational Justice.  He applauds Ron Sider and ESA for this Call.

“EVANGELICAL DEBT PROPOSAL. No, it isn’t to pray for an answer. A group of Christian evangelicals will call this morning for “fiscal frugality” and “compassionate action” that doesn’t ignore the poor. The group includes Michael Gerson, the Washington Post columnist and former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, and Ron Sider, founder of Evangelicals for Social Action. – National Journal
