What better way to mark Valentine’s Day than to hear from our old friend Chuck Colson. No, seriously. Okay, so Chuck Colson was not a hopeless romantic. But that did not stop him from commenting on the uniquely Christian origins of Valentine’s Day. In this BreakPoint commentary, recorded way back in 1999, Chuck tells us how the commemoration of the ultimate human love—Christian martyrdom—stood in stark contrast and ultimately replaced a popular pagan festival.
