Colson’s Change

In July of 1984 Charles Colson was speaking at a Baptist gathering.

He told of his change from being an Episcopalian to becoming a Baptist.

He had considered a change dictated by his study of Scripture and his developing personal convictions.

But he did not want his change to be offensive to his dear friends who remained Episcopalian.

Not knowing how to approach the issue, he found himself avoiding his friends.

Then one day his fears were put to rest.

He encountered one of his Episcopalian cronies who assured him there was no problem with his change, but only benefit.

His encouragement to Church was, “When you left the Episcopalian Church and joined the Baptist Church, you raised the intellectual level of both groups.”
