    I always knew Tony Campolo was a liberal theologian and some of his compassionate missions I agree with. But after checking out his staements from this website it is clear he is 100% Emergent. He is embracing the New Age stuff promoted by many of the Emergent leaders today.

    We need to pray for Tony to see the truth in Christianity and turn from his false views. But more importantly we need to warn anyone who may fall under his teaching.

    Way back forever ago, he seemed solid (back when hubby and I were dating, and hubby worked for Youth for Christ, he did a number of speaking gigs for us - this was almost 30 years ago). That's too bad that he's gone so far off track.

    I remember the church we were in 26 years ago did a video lesson by him and I was very inspired by his compassion for the lost. I don't know what has taken him into his heretical ways but it is sad. I have heard his salvation story and I come to the conclusion he probably was never saved. So if that is true it explains a lot.

    “There is a feminine side of God. I always knew this ... It is this feminine side of God I find in Jesus that makes me want to sing duets with Him ...”

    -Tony Campolo
    "Carpe Diem: Seize the Day", 1994


    I always thought he was a nut.

    Its very sad to see what has happened to Tony. I remember him as being quite prominant in my early christian years back in the very early 80's.

    He has really made some wrong turns since then.

    Notice how Tony never quotes scripture in his little quips. He is typically Emergent, we are supossed to elevate personal experience and feelings above the bible, and how dare anyone challenge them.

    Sounds like a heretic if you ask me.

    His theology is from the "god of this age" as he believes that we are potential all little gods, divine, jesus just a saviour, not the one!

    Alternate lifestyles ok, bible not infallible as we see it etc!

    Too many start out with examining the text and then gravitate toward a pragmatic watering down of their theology and encouraged to lower their stance with a focus on making their church appealing. What they do not realize is that by doing that, those who are non-believers see a weak faith and do not stay because they want strong substance not just a relational talk.

    I attended a 3 day confrence for college students in Pittsburg PA in 1980 (Jubilee 1980 it think) and Campolo was one of the main speakers. He was right on target back then and really left an impression on me in a positive way. It is sad to see how far he has fallen since then. Even sadder for me though is one of my mentors at the time, now a pastor in the ABCUSA doesn't see the problem Campolo poses to that group with whom he has tremendous influence over.

    There will come a time when will not subscribe to sound doctrine being taught, but want to heed doctrines not of God, as we want to accomodate current thoughts, in order to 'corect' what God said!

    Satan's PR department, otherwise known as the main stream media, actually used to refer to this guy as a "fundamentalist". He never was even orthodox, much less fundamental. But he was smart enough to know the words to use when deceiving a nominally bible-oriented crowd. And so it goes.
