Tony Campolo, Former Spiritual Adviser to Bill Clinton: Christians Should Vote for Hillary

Campolo WSPHILADELPHIA — Tony Campolo, false teacher and former spiritual adviser to Bill Clinton, is urging Christians to vote for Hillary as president, claiming that she is a Christian woman who will help to lower the abortion rate in America.

“I like Hillary Clinton. We are personal friends,” he wrote in a recent article for Religion News Service. “I am more than willing to do all I can to help Hillary Clinton get elected. Should she ask me to organize an Evangelicals for Hillary committee, I would be more than willing to do so. I believe in her. And you should too.”

As previously reported, Campolo serves as one of the leaders at Mount Carmel Baptist Church in West Philadelphia, which is part of the National Baptist Convention USA and American Baptist Churches USA. In the 1990’s, he served as a spiritual adviser to then-President Bill Clinton, including during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Campolo’s wife, Peggy, is a homosexual activist and believes that the Church should be accepting of same-sex “marriage.” While Campolo personally opposes same-sex nuptials, he believes the government should recognize civil unions. Campolo is also regarded as being a mystic as he teaches that his “intimacy with Christ was developed gradually over the years, primarily through what Catholic mystics call ‘centering prayer.’”

He asserts in his 2008 book “Partly Right” that the Bible is not without error, as “an evangelical has a very high view of Scripture though not necessarily inerrancy,” and has also commented to reporters that he believes non-Christians might go to Heaven.

“[W]e do not know who Jesus will bring into the kingdom and who He will not,” Campolo told the Edmonton Journal in 2007. “We are very, very careful about pronouncing judgment on anybody. We leave judgment in the hands of God and we are saying Jesus is the way. We preach Jesus, but we have no way of knowing to whom the grace of God is extended.”

On April 13, in an article entitled “Why Christians Should Vote for Hillary,” Campolo called upon Christians to vote for Clinton as president, and made his case as to why he believes she is the right person for the job.

“Some of my evangelical friends raise questions about her views on abortion,” he stated. “But Hillary Clinton is one of the few candidates on the political stage who has a plan for cutting the abortion rate in America by at least 50 percent.”

“She is committed to addressing [economic] problems, and thus diminishing the urgency that drives so many oppressed women into having abortions,” Campolo said. “As a pro-life Democrat, I am encouraged by the possibility that Hillary could be our next president.”

Campolo, who is a proponent of the “emergent church” movement, and is the co-author of the social justice book “Red Letter Revolution” with Shane Claiborne, said that he believes that Clinton is a Christian woman who is devoted to prayer.

“I know Hillary Clinton to be a committed Christian,” he said. “The youth pastor of her Methodist church mentored her through her teenage years into being the kind of holistic Christian who faithfully engages in the spiritual disciplines of Bible study and prayer.”

But others believe differently about Clinton. Pastor Bryan Ridenour wrote last year on his blog “America, Look Up” that he could never support the now former secretary of state due to his biblical convictions.

“If a church member asks in 2016 if I can support Hillary Clinton, I can unequivocally respond, ‘Not in this lifetime,’” he said. “If we vote for leaders who support abortion on demand, then we essentially hold the surgical knife that strips life from the womb. If we vote for leaders who support and champion gay marriage, we in effect officiate at their ceremonies. God holds us accountable for what we do behind the voting booth curtain.”

As previously reported, earlier this month, Clinton’s campaign staff included two homosexual men in her video presentation announcing her presidential run. The video zooms in as the men hold hands and one declares, “I’m getting married this summer to someone I really care about.”

“I’m getting ready to do something too,” Clinton soon announces. “I’m running for president.”

The men, Jared Milrad, 31, and Nathan Johnson, 30, state that they have now invited Clinton to attend their ceremony.

    More lies from fake Christians about fake Christians. Spoon fed to people who are willing to believe just about anything, if it comes from someone they have deemed worthy of respect and credibility. No doubt this message will resonate with those in the fake Christian feminist movement taking place in false religion pretending to be Christianity.

    • Paul Hiett

      You know, they probably think you’re the fake ones. 42,000 denominations and growing…

      • Coach

        Biblical Christianity is the only true Christianity. One can’t call themselves Christian and oppose the Word of God, which established the universe and all that is in it. Ultimately there’s only 2 systems of belief. One is the kindgom of darkness, to which I once belonged and the Kingdom of God, by whose grace, I now belong. God spoke everything into being and people want to claim Him and reject His Word, but there is no separation.

        • Paul Hiett

          And yet, there are people posting here who would disagree with you, and claim you’re not the real Christian, while you claim they’re not.

          Whom do we believe? You? Them? The other 41,998 denominations?

          It seems the “big three” Abrahamic religions all suffer from this same problem; the inability for everyone to agree on the texts, which are vague and obscure to begin with.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            “And yet, there are people posting here who would disagree with you, and claim you’re not the real Christian, while you claim they’re not.” AND “the inability for everyone to agree on the texts, which are vague and obscure to begin with”

            You appear to be making the claim that because you are a flat-earther and I am not, both views are equally true. This violates the Law of Non-Contradiction, which is inviolable. Furthermore, agreement or consensus is not the determiner of truth: truth is, by its very nature, exclusive of falsehood. I’m very surprised you are still asking us to take seriously your self-refuting post-modern claims in 2015. Please take an undergraduate course in logic.

            The Bible talks clearly about sheep and wolves and how the former have the assurance and perseverance of salvation and the latter do not. There are sheep and wolves in every single denomination. It is unsurprising that you are ignorant of Christianity, as you are a blind faith a-theist who believes that the universe miraculously popped into existence out of nothing uncaused by anything.

            If you actually believe that a woman whose highest unholy sacrament is the view that it is objectively moral to rip apart a 7 pound baby in the womb (because CHOICE!) is a Christian, you are seriously deluded. The approval of this barbaric practice is one shared by 97% of your fellow a-theists. And, each one of you will get your chance to argue for it in front of the One Who “created your innermost being, who knit you together in your mother’s womb.”

          • Paul Hiett

            You’re bringing up “logic” regarding a religion that has over 42,000 different interpretations? Maybe you should take that course…

            And for the record, I can almost guarantee you I know more about not only your religion, but most others as well.

          • The Last Trump

            Wow! 42000 interpretations! Must be on the right track, eh Paul!
            HUGELY popular!
            And then there are the atheists. 🙁

          • Paul Hiett

            I’m not wrong.

          • Weary Warrior

            Of course you’re right. In your own mind. But Hitler believed he was right. Stalin believed he was right. Mussolini believed he was right. Jack-the-Ripper no doubt believed he was right. Judas believed he was right. So what do you prove by insisting you are right? We ALL think we’re right until we understand when we’re wrong. Hope you find your way. By the time Judas figured it out, it was too late and he was damned forever.

          • Paul Hiett

            Turn that same thought process inward. You could make that claim for anyone, even yourself.

          • Weary Warrior

            Of course. And I do. All the time! ☺ Please reread my comment. I said “we ALL think we’re right.”

          • KenS

            The forever damnation of Judas came about when he hung himself. Up until the time that he took his life, he could have repented and believed on Jesus for salvation and therefore not be damned forever.

          • akosipatriot

            Count how many people on this planet with differing views, that’s how many truths there are.(Quote idea taken from Miriam Defensor Santiago).
            You can replace truths with lies on that statement. This line of argument was also used by Roman Catholic faith defenders to attack the legitimacy of Biblical Christian Churches, or Protestant Churches as they call it. Paul, google will certainly find you sites to explain, helping you get rid of this faulty logic.

          • Paul Hiett

            So now we’re saying that all beliefs are true?

          • akosipatriot

            So you’re saying there are 10s of thousands denominations out there that makes conflictting claims about Christ making them all wrong and that makes you automatically correct, right? As others pointed out, there are only three branches of Christianity, as recorded also at wikipedia, Roman Catholicism, Orthodox and Protestantism. These major groups shared a common view of God, Christ and the Holy Spirit. You confused yourself with numbers, eg, Baptist and Foursquare Gospel Churches are two different denominations, but members of these Churches considered themselves to be of one body(Church) which is Jesus Christ as the head. If you google this and type the right keywords you can find links that may help you my suggestion.

          • John Mark IB

            again what will you do with the man Christ Jesus??
            Jesus very narrow, very exclusive said in John 14:6
            Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
            many false religions lead to hell, but only one put the proof in the pudding!!! only one can be right they can’t all be can they?? all roads lead to rome?? Israel exists just as The GOD of Israel Jesus said it would as a Nation prophecy fulfilled in 1948 flowers blooming all over that once deserted waste land as Bible prophecy clearly said it would Jesus lived died rose again in a place called Jerusalem!! it’s been documented and archaeology backs it up confirms every bit of it!! Bible is true Jesus is LORD what will you do with Him?? the choice is yours and it’s narrow very exclusive absolute truth is absolutely knowable Jesus is Truth and then again what will you do with Christ Jesus???? tomorrow is not guaranteed my friend, please investigate the truth objectively, none of us is born as a Christian, but we are born again as a Christian, so my friend what will you do with the Christ ???? also there is no private interpretation of GOD’S Holy preserved Words, it only makes sense one way and that’s His way, thru His Holy Spirit as the teacher and guide of Truth and interpreter, otherwise it’s all human effort and for naught!!
            http:// faithsaves. net /salvation
            http:// faith saves . net /daniel-proof-bible/
            what will you do with all the evidence and the man Christ Jesus?? time is short death assured any moment could be the last?? here’s a neat saying but one that’s very true,
            only one life twill soon be past,
            only what’s done for Christ will last!!

          • Have you ever looked in a mirror and truly asked: “Might I be wrong?” Yes, I have done so. Then again, if there is no “right” or “wrong”, why bother? Of what value is a compass if there is no such thing as a magnetic field? As Dostoyevsky wrote: “Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others.”
            May you search for truth. And may your search be truly fruitful.

          • akosipatriot

            Paul, it is a sign of incompetence to argue based on the number of denominations, google will help you why there are many.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            I see you did not address your self-refuting claim that truth is arrived at by agreement. Nor did you address the logical fallacy that because there are different interpretations, they must all be wrong. Nor did you address the fact that many (the wolves) who self-profess a particular view do not actually hold to that view.

            Nor do you comprehend that all denominations under the three main branches of Christianity (Catholic, Protestant, Eastern Orthodox) hold identical essentials: Jesus is God, the Bible is God’s Word, Jesus was resurrected, etc. Based on your faulty logic, the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of different views under a-theism means that a-theism is false! This despite the fact that all a-theists believe that there is no God.

            Nor did you address the fact regarding assurance and perseverance of faith, and how we can know the wolves from the sheep. (This is Christianity 101, so you cannot know much about it.) Nor did you address the issue of just how a Christian could believe that the baby created in the womb by God is fair game for murder.

          • jmichael39

            You’re wasting your time being logical with Paul, WGC. He’s not even remotely interested in logic or intellect or truth. Have you SEEN the list from which he’s referring? It’s utterly hilarious. But what can you expect from a man who tries to speak a language he’s never studied or learned to speak?

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Yes, I know, but I just don’t want to give up on him. I’m my own worst enemy! 🙂 But, for someone who claims he knows so much about the faith, he sure failed the basics. It’s almost like he believes in some sort of country club Christianity – pick the club (denomination) you want to attend and that defines the truth for you. Maybe that is the way it is in Canada, the UK, and Western Europe?

            But, that is not what I converted to from my a-theism 11 years ago: I converted to a relationship rooted in reality, not a social group that just happens to meet in a church building once a week.

            God bless you, JMichael, for your strong faith and for standing firm!

          • Paul Hiett

            First, mass belief in something is not indicative of truth. If that were true, the “truth” would keep changing throughout time. And yes, it is a fact that not all denominations of Christianity can be “right”, but which ones are? Which ones are wrong?

            It’s not a lie to state that many of you (Christians) on this site constantly tell each other that you’re wrong…I’ve seen some of you even tell each other you’re both going to hell because you’re wrong. When non-Christians see this, what do you expect them to think? “Oh look, they can’t even agree on what to believe, why should I give this religion a second thought?”

            Your claim about atheism being wrong is an invalid comparison. Atheism is not a religion. It’s not a group of people at all…atheism is simply a lack of belief in deities. It doesn’t single out any deity, for that matter, which many Christians think…as if we think your religion is special and we’re just choosing not to believe in that one particular brand.

            Finally, what does “perseverance and faith” have to do with truth?

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            “First, mass belief in something is not indicative of truth.”

            Yes, I know. So, why were YOU asserting that truth is determined by agreement?!?

            “And yes, it is a fact that not all denominations of Christianity can be “right”, but which ones are”

            Well, of course! If we all disagree on stuff, then we cannot all be completely right – duh! But, you missed my point on how all of these denominations agree, by proof of their statements of faith, on the essentials: that “Jesus is God,” “the Bible is God’s Word,” “Jesus was resurrected,” etc.

            Perhaps this will help you: “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.” – Augustine

            We debate non-essentials vigorously (and i mean vigorously! :-)), and we divide over them, denominationally, too often. But, we do not condemn anyone to Hell who agrees on the essentials. As an example, if I am conversing with a Calvinist or Armenian, I am going to disagree with them and vigorously argue for Molinism. But, I would never condemn them to Hell. We agree 100% on the essentials of the faith.

            On the other hand, if I am conversing with a pro-abortion universalist, then I am going to question their salvation – to their face or online. (They are more than welcome to do the same with me.) It is the loving thing to do – to warn them that, while they may think they have placed their trust in Jesus, they are fooling themselves, possibly with eternal consequences. How do I know this? The Bible is the Standard. And if the individual I am conversing with says that the Bible is not in play, then I would also suggest that they are violating an essential, and I can prove that too, propositionally.

            “It’s not a lie to state that many of you (Christians) on this site constantly tell each other that you’re wrong”

            Most of the time, that is a vigorous debate over non-essentials. We love our Savior deeply, and our desire to know truth is driven by the fact that He IS Truth. (John 14:6)

            “I’ve seen some of you even tell each other you’re both going to hell because you’re wrong.”

            THAT is a situation where an individual has denied a core doctrine (orthodoxy) or core practice (orthopraxy). Very simple, really. (see the examples above)

            “Oh look, they can’t even agree on what to believe, why should I give this religion a second thought?”

            That is true of EVERY worldview, including a-theism. As a former a-theist, I can assure you that there are as many different brands of a-theism as there are of Christianity. But, they all have one thing in common: the belief that there is no God. That is a core doctrine or belief of a-theism that will get you into ANY a-theist convention.

            “Atheism is not a religion.”

            It is a worldview – with beliefs. For some, it IS a religion. Ever been to an a-theist convention?!? 🙂

            “atheism is simply a lack of belief in deities”

            FALSE. It is the belief that there are no deities, not a “lack of belief.” That is agnosticism, at best. To prove to you that a-theism is the negation of theism and the belief that “there is no God,” consider the Stanford University Encyclopedia of Philosophy definition, which states the same. Or consider the fact that, under your definition, a-theism could be true at the same time that “God exists” is true, in the same way that you could “lack belief” that we landed on the moon when we really did! Your definition is nothing more than a description of your psychological state – it is kindergarten a-theism, and I suggest you discard it and become a middle school a-theist. if you need help, I have 42 years of experience in a-theism to pass on to you.

            “Finally, what does “perseverance and faith” have to do with truth?”

            It is “perseverance OF faith.” It is a means of knowing that Christianity is true. Let me just address the “faith” part right now. Faith, Biblically speaking, is a trust in what we have evidence for. Suppose you are about to undergo a major surgery. You research all of the specialists across your country to see who is most qualified in this particular area. That is the evidential part – the gathering of evidence. The “faith” part is when you sign the documents authorizing the surgeon you have chosen to do the surgery. It is not a blind faith, but a trust based on the serious collection of evidence – the search for objective truth as to who the best surgeon is. In the Christian worldview, the Surgeon is Jesus of Nazareth.

          • Rev.

            Well put sir( especially the kindergarten a-theist part)……we’ll continue to pray the blinders fall off on this lost soul , as ours did when we recieved eternal life thru our Faith in Jesus Christ…

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Amen! For me, it was like a Light switch had been turned around – it was practically instantaneous! I believe that is because I was in more darkness than most who reject God, a chief of sinners if you will. So, as the Light came on, it very nearly blinded me. For the first two years after, I had this huge grin that you could NOT wipe off of my face. 🙂

            Paul Hiett and many other unbelievers on this site would make excellent Christians. The question is: are they here to seek truth or just to mock? Because if they seek, they shall find, and if they find, they shall be set free. God bless you, Rev.!

            sorry just my 2 cents but the bottom line here is and will be until you breath your last breathe (hope I got those right haha) what will you do with Christ?? we can debate all the issues in the world only comes back to this dear atheist, with all sincerity what will you do with Christ??? you can reject Him or believe and investigate His claims to narrow exclusive and only one way to truth He is truth what will you do with Christ?? here’s hope please consider it…have a blessed day and week with love joy and peace in Jesus name amen to you and yours if you’re sincere here you go several sites they won’t let me post but you can still get them if you are sincere

            again what will you do with the man Christ Jesus your very soul depends upon your answer He died so you could have life!! no other religion did this???

          • Atheism “simply a lack of belief in deities”??? Hardly. A lack of belief in supernatural deities, yes. But you are indeed a believer in god. Your god is yourself, and your religion is humanism. And humanism, as all religion, is a matter of faith. As for myself, I have transcended humanism and have made a Kiekegaardian leap of faith. As I stated earlier: Are you prepared to stand by your beliefs? I have looked into the mirror of life and asked that question of myself. Have you?

          • Perhaps Paul should view Matthew 7:21, if he does not find it too demeaning. Even Hitler invoked obedience to “god”. The problem is not a religious condition; the problem is a human condition. It is a matter of hubris. A matter of rebellion. And it has been in existence since the beginning of mankind.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Yes, indeed, a great verse! The problem is that many a-theists, my BC self included, will completely ignore the Bible or anything heard in church. That is why a pre-apologetics approach is so important. If they can understand the value in pursuing truth, and realize that GOOD science, math, philosophy, etc is consistent with Biblical truth (all truth is God’s truth after all), then that MIGHT get them to the Bible, as it did me after some time. They need to understand that God will never cut short a SINCERE search for the truth, that such a search will lead them to the One Who is Truth, and that the Truth will set them free. To me, it’s that first step: so many a-theists just want to mock the God they don’t believe in and Christians, and are not open to evidential truth.

          • railhead

            The problem is you probably learned all you know about religion at Atheist State University, But I don’t want to be as presumptuous and egotistical as to think I know anything about you from internet postings.

            The history of true Christianity is revealed in the Bible. The history of churches and religious people is available in the world’s books. According to the Bible, there is only one “Abrahamic” religion:

            Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
            Luk_3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
            Joh_8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

            The Bible clearly says being a PHYSICAL descendant of Abraham means nothing. What distinguished Abraham was that he believed God:

            Rom_4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

            Here’s how you know a real Christian….you show him a verse from the Bible, any verse, and he believes it (in context, not ripped out of context). You can’t find very many pastors who will stand behind every verse in the book, because many pastors are not Abrahamic (they don’t believe God). And there are probably real Christians in most of those 42,000 denominations, but they are NOT the majority.

            Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
            Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

            Yet, it’s as simple as this:
            Joh 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

            Whoever says you have to do more than believe on Christ for eternal life is not saved, because they are saying that verse is not true, and thus calling God a liar. And this verse is not out of context, by the way. It’s talking about how to be saved, and it mentions one thing. This is not what most “Christians” believe…..most add good works in some way, shape or form, as do all religions of the world. Man wants to feel good about himself somehow.

          • FoJC_Forever

            Your father, the Devil, knows more about the plethora of different religions he’s authored in the world. People like yourself, those who have rejected Truth, simply sit and blather the lies of Satan. Your life is currently in waste mode.

            I don’t think you know as much as you claim. You have proven yourself to be in Darkness and embracing lies, so it’s no stretch for you to make yet another false claim.

            What you should do is seek the LORD, honestly and humbly and earnestly. If you do this, He will reveal Himself to you.

          • Epistemology is not your strong suit.

          • marc

            Not really, the bible is very clear.

          • Coach

            There is no big 3, Jews who reject Jesus Christ, reject the true God, just like many Israelites rejected God in the old testament. islam was started by a man who learned under Jewish and Christian scholars, then took what he learned and twisted it to form his own religion. The people of mecca worshipped over 300 gods, Mohamed kept one of them, the moon god allah. People first thought he was insane in trying to convert people to his religion, but when he used force and recruited people to fighting war, islam grew much more. One major difference between Christianity and islam is true believers put their faith in Jesus Christ and are changed from the emptiness of their former life and stand firm on the Word of God, exercising faith through love, not phony love that approves of people’s sin, but genuine love that pushes sinners towards God. Islam is purely religious work not from a heart changed by God, but a heart controlled by satan. Some of the people who are looking to join terror groups are doing so because in studying the koran, they realize that if what they believe were true, they would need to join these terror groups’ cause and at the very least, hate Christians. Christianity isn’t about what I can do to please God as though God would be impressed by me doing something for Him who needs nothing, it’s my recognition of Christ alive in me, that’s why I don’t see things the way you, barkingdog, or any unbeliever does. He changed me and the life I live is in response to His grace as well as through His grace. Just like your father the devil, you exalt yourself above God, believing that He should prove himself to you, the proof is there, but you don’t want God, you’ve already determined that, so you follow blindly the road to destruction. I wonder the purpose of you and the many other unbelievers who comment several times a day on these articles, all the while hardening yourselves to the truth, determining you’re not going to believe. Answer me this basic question, where did life come from? and why does it end?

          • I am certain that Paul’s response to the query:”Answer me this basic question, where did life come from” would be: “Ex nihilo. From hydrogen.” Theists also believe life originated “Ex nihilo”, but resulted from some thing or some force outside of time and space. No, do not resort to arguments of infinite regression. Concerning the Kalam (cosmological) argument:
            “Whatever begins to exist has a cause.
            The universe began to exist.
            Therefore, the universe has a cause.”
            The operative word is “begins”. Theists believe that God is unconfined to temporal and spatial limitations. But atheists must also justify their faith (and I mean the word “faith” literally) in the eternality of matter.

            We must all choose between atoms and deities. Between the microscopical and the magisteral.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Yes, Kalam is a near slam dunk for theism.

          • Coach

            In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth… To look at the universe and deny this simple truth is to suppress the truth. It’s easy for a person to continue in a life of sin and pleasure, when he/she assumes no accountability for their actions. When a person trusts in Jesus Christ they recognize sin for what it truly is, utterly detestable. The impenitent sinner sees his/her actions as pleasurable so any belief that goes against the desire for pleasure is assumed false. Jesus is the only Way, but and impenitent sinner says there’s another way and denies Christ who is his/her only hope of escaping eternal hell fire.

            The assumption is “hey I’m just living my life” atheists work hard to put God out of their minds, false converts say it’s okay for me to sin, Jesus paid my fine, others adhere to strict moral codes and all these have in common that they trust in themselves. God will judge the wicked and for anyone to say they’re good without God is blasphemy and mocks the fact that Jesus came to the earth suffered and died for the world’s sins and was resurrected and now stands to intercede for any who will repent and trust alone in Him.

          • @Paul: Unless materialism be gospel, the ultimate arbiter of truth is God. We have placed before us truth and falsehood. The choice is ours.. Are you prepared to stand by YOUR choice, whatever it may be?
            Atheist: “There are no absolute truths.”
            Theist: “Do you truly believe that?”
            Atheist: “Absolutely.”

          • The Bible is neither vague nor obscure. There are just many, many people who don’t like what it says.

      • FoJC_Forever

        Sadly, if you die in your current condition, you will find out that you needed to receive Salvation through Jesus Christ. You like to debate and argue, but have no concern for Truth, for Good, or for God.

        Your words are like dust, blowing around and getting people dirty.

  • Frank

    Hillary is no more a Christian than Satan is.

    • Exactly. No fruit from Hillary. I don’t see she is born-again. She acts much like one who has only been born of the flesh, one who is in Adam, not in Christ.

    • WorldGoneCrazy

      Indeed, I would say she is less so: even Satan (and his demons) knows that Jesus is Lord, but I seriously doubt she does.

    • John Mark IB

      haha funny making me laugh sad but too true wow too bad most Americans will want her as the first female pres. and her husband is still loved by women and men as the guy who got the disgusting memory loss issue not going to be specific we all know from that “Lewinsky woman “no I didn’t not have” by his definition physical relations with that “Lewinsky woman” haha in my best billary accent haha

  • She is born again and gives her life to the Gospel and serving Christ and willing to be persecuted for His sake by proclaiming what is sin and the way to eternal life? I don’t think.

    People don’t understand what a Christian is, that is, a fisher of man, a disciple maker by trade.

  • jmichael39

    Christianity has had to deal with false versions of it since the early church. People like Tony and the emergent church are little more than modern versions of the Gnostics. Even John wrote about them in Revelations. We’ll be dealing with them until the wheat and tares are separated

  • When are Christians going to stop listening to this horrific false teacher? I remember decades ago, when Tony Campolo was not quite as insane as he is in his old age today… he was teaching that it is impossible to be a Christian and also drive a nice car, because any excess net worth you have must be given to ministry work. Amazingly, this extremely judgmental man won the favor of then-President Bill Clinton.
    Now, he has flip-flopped from being a hyper-legalist who condemns every Christian for the slightest imperfection… to being the extreme opposite… and antinomian who says “anything goes”, and wants Christians to vote for radically left-wing liberals!
    Tony Campolo is not just a heretic… he is a lunatic. He cannot decide on which fanatical end of the spectrum he wants to promote.

    • I wouldn’t even give him that much respect. He is an irrelevant self-promoter who decided there was fame to be had as a “spiritual adviser” to rich and powerful people. As it is, I’m wasting electricity even commenting on him. meh

  • Linda

    Excuse me. I am a born again Christian. I believe in the Bible as being the Word of God. Abortion is Killing; Period. This man is a fool. Period.

    • uzza

      Which Bible?

    • OldArkie

      True Linda, yet now days we have many Baptist who stand up for the sins against God, and this man does not go by the Holy Bible, he is a humanest.

  • Weary Warrior

    My daughter attended Eastern in St. David’s, PA where Campolo teaches ~ or was teaching then. He said something so radically liberal and un-Christian in class one day that Jen got into a rather heated debate with him. Personally, I don’t believe he is a Christian. But there are many like him in the American Baptist Church.

    • John Mark IB

      please this is a guy who anyone can see gives true independent Baptists a bad name no way he’s Christian let alone Baptist as he clings to the mystical catholic emergent gobbedly goop it hurts me as an IB that he would or even could be labeled as such but of course Christian first Baptist by conviction, sorry my beef not with you, I’m just sick at the thought of this guy and his destructive lost rick warren contemplative emergent stuff, yuuuuckkkk!!! haha and you made very good comments, but this guys lost an needs to get saved, born again see here for excellent stuff from solid Baptists and have a blessed day and week

    America is doomed if nations wil not pray for her.

  • railhead

    WA HA HA HA HA! Who believes this nonsense. Hillary a Christian???? Can’t you just picture her giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to someone at the White House while she decorated the Christmas Tree with condoms?

    Luk 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

    Joh 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
    Joh 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

  • libssukkalot

    Hillary and Christian goes together about as well Obama and honest…this guy is delusional.

  • marc

    This guy is so far out of touch with reality it makes my head hurt

  • Truthhurts24

    These fake idiots give me a headache

  • Economic conditions are not the cause of abortion. A culture that exalts personal convenience over respect for God-given life is the more proximate cause. Hillary Clinton’s “plan” doesn’t even begin to address the root of the problem. Tony Campolo went off the rails twenty years ago and still people treat him seriously.

    • dclach

      Actually Tony Campolo was well off the rails when I first met him (when I was in my teens) over 50 years ago. In a Biblical sense, he is not a Christian and his opinion in respect to Hillary’s “Christian faith” is worthless. He was raised as an Evangelical and, in a sense, probably still knows what it means to be a Christian; but he has long since, very deliberately denied the faith.

  • sammy13

    Cutting the abortion rate by 50%? Still leaves the other half to be murdered! No thanks. The Clinton’s have far too much questionable baggage. Not that the others who are running or may run, but there is a big difference in what must go in the baggage hold and what is allowed in carry on. A major difference.

  • staad

    not another democrat. they stand up for freedom for just about everything even licentiousness.

  • David Wells

    Campolo says Hillary “[I]s committed to addressing [economic] problems…that drives so many oppressed women into having abortions.”

    TWO THINGS, Mr. Campolo: the economy has NOTHING to do it with fornication, unwanted pregnancies, and abortion; the problem is sin (as a pastor, you should know this basic tenet). Second, if you really want to end abortion, you need to vote for a candidate that wants to end abortion – Hillary does NOT want to end abortion. How dare you use your ‘friendship’ with the Clintons to sway votes for Hillary. You should be very ashamed.

  • Karen Hollenbeck

    Hillary is no more a Christian than my pet spider, but definitely more deadly.

    • John Mark IB

      haha funny man you crack me up good humor!! 🙂 and sadly all too true we have black widows lot’s of them in my neck of the woods sadly she scares me more than they do she’ll sting us all to death!! definitely we’re under judgment if not GOD will have to apologize to sod om and Gomorra please see the site here if they’ll let me put it thru http:// faithsaves . net/ salvation and deep theology as well as

  • bella23

    Hillary is no more a Christian than Tony Campolo. I pray they both repent and trust in Christ.

  • Michael Falsia

    Tony Campolo is a disgrace and a reproach to the Lord Jesus! If Karl Marx was a professed Christian Tony would feel right at home with him. This is an evil man whose torment in hell will be great! May God grant repentance to this reprobate!

    • John Mark IB

      excellent well said amen too true and too sad he’s a lost apostate who needs to repent and get born again take care have a blessed day and pass on the hope here http faith saves . net maybe they’ll let my comments thru here??

  • John Mark IB

    well said below so sad this guys lost we need to pray for him and that she never get’s elected but it will not really matter you see the liberal eastern establishment controls the one party façade and false left right paradigm, it’s a farce, otherwise why not allow all the major parties on the debate platform on the major media debates ?? so the real parties like mine constitutional party and the libertarian and green have to go thru cspan or freeandequal or something like that to get heard and be seen for our real debates from the out cast and parties who will never be given the chance to truly reform this country, anyway, she Hillary needs to get saved and so does campolo both need to be born again biblically here’s the hope pass it on http:// faith saves . net and to my freedom loving friends look up your constitution party. com for your state they’re great but we have no millionaire lobbyists with deep bankers pockets so we stand no chance

  • Linda

    There is only one truth, Truth, and that is Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. There is only one reality, our redemption through Him. He is our love and our song.

  • StephenFreese

    When the heathen, the pagan stop debating, it is time to leave them to their own vain imaginations…If you continue with them, they will only tear at you. Their reasoning has been cauterized and it is useless, reprobate. They do not desire to know truth.

    “Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces”

    “He who corrects a scoffer gets shame for himself, And he who rebukes a wicked man only harms himself.”…

    “Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you; Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.”

    “As a dog returns to his own vomit, So a fool repeats his folly.”
    When the attacks come, the obligatory ad hominem and pejoratives, time to shake the dust off your feet.

    Leave them alone and move to another soul in need of redemption…The reprobate, may God have mercy on them.

    • Josey

      I agree with most of your comment but I don’t believe a reprobate can have mercy, they have crossed a line of no return if God has turned then over to a reprobate mind but I get the intent of your heart, it’s a hard thing to comprehend. I suppose that is why God shut the door of the ark knowing how hard it was for Noah to hear those cries after it was too late for them.

  • Josey

    I think it’s ludicrous for Bill Clinton’s former ‘spiritual adviser’ to advise Christians to vote for Hillary, what a ridiculous statement!

  • Mys77

    No offense, but this guy is borderline creepy…and far removed from anyone I know to be a Christian…somethings is incredibly creepy about his blind devotion to a lying, conniving, manipulative, deceptive, muredering, greedy, abortion happy, decisive witch!

  • Another spiritual advisor to both Bill and Hillary has said that, although adultery is a sin, given Hillary’s persona, an exception might be made for Bill…

  • Cindy

    This Christian is not about to vote for Hillary.

  • Cindy

    Hillary a committed Christian? Whatever gave him that idea, because her and Bill go to church every Sunday? Take a look at the list of dead bodies those two have left in their wake during their political careers.

  • Kachina

    “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

  • Campolo has always been antiChrist. He is damned by God and hated by righteous souls. May he burn in Hell soon. Filth. Along with his Satanic wife.

  • kccoallday

    Campolo, EX-Christian. Why should we listen to you?
    You got to pose with the Clintons for a photo-op. Awwww, shucks, they’re such sweet people, aren’t they? (Just ask Vince Foster!)

  • Josey

    Christians should vote for Hillary…are you kidding, her actions show how far she is from Christ, no Christian should vote for her!

  • Tim Underwood

    Tony is, has been, and always will be, a liberal hack. Disregard ANYTHING coming from his mouth about politics.

  • Tony Campolo is a “red letter christian”, meaning he only accepts the parts of the Scripture he regards as the words of Jesus. By taking the words of Jesus (red letters) out of the context of the whole of Scripture he can twist and conform them to his leftist worldview.
