“I know the resurrection is a fact, and Watergate proved it to me. How? Because 12 men testified they had seen Jesus raised from the dead, then they proclaimed that truth for 40 years, never once denying it. Every one was beaten, tortured, stoned and put in prison. They would not have endured that if it weren’t true. Watergate embroiled 12 of the most powerful men in the world-and they couldn’t keep a lie for three weeks. You’re telling me 12 fishermen could keep a lie for 40 years? Absolutely impossible.” ― Charles W. Colson
Chuck Colson went to prison after pleading guilty to obstructing justice in the Watergate break in that undid the Nixon administration. After finding Christ behind bars, he spent most of the rest of his life ministering to prisoners and preaching the Gospel. He founded Prison Fellowship Ministries.
It was a remarkable reversal.
