He opens with a joke about being tape-recorded - referring to Watergate. He also tells several humorous anecdotes. He poses the question, “What can a fellow believe in now?” Colson discusses the breakdown of government and loss of trust in society. He discusses how modern society lives as if God is dead. Colson examines what it means to be a Christian in a religious sense and not merely a situational or cultural sense. The Church must stand on truth, on Scripture. Colson also examines the Trinity Western Statement of Purpose and the importance of the mission to create leaders who think as Christians constantly. He discusses how God has not used his triumphs, but the great defeat of his life - going to prison - to impact others. Colson argues that it is not what we do, but what God chooses to do through us, and our obedience to Him. He then examines what it means to love God. Finally, Colson calls out to the people not to simply sit smugly and be saved, but to go out and live as members of the Church of Christ in the middle of the decaying Kingdom of the world. President Snider thanks Colson for coming and makes a few closing remarks. Notes provided by BF, student assistant, 2010/2011
