Laodicean Tony Campolo Says Christianity Should Now Accept Open-Homosexuals - Because He Prayed About It

Tony Campolo Comes Out of Closet in Support of ‘Full Acceptance’ of Homosexuality in Church

PHILADELPHIA — False teacher Tony Campolo announced on Monday that he has decided to endorse and speak out for the inclusion of open homosexuals in the Body of Christ.

'I tell you...it took countless hours'
"It has taken countless hours of prayer, study, conversation and emotional turmoil to bring me to the place where I am finally ready to call for the full acceptance of Christian gay couples into the Church,” he wrote in a statement posted to his website.

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 1990s, 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.” He explained on Monday that his wife is one of the reasons why he has decided to endorse acceptance of homosexuals in Christianity.

“Because of my open concern for social justice, in recent years I have been asked the same question over and over again: Are you ready to fully accept into the Church those gay Christian couples who have made a lifetime commitment to one another?” Campolo outlined. “One reason I am changing my position on this issue is that, through Peggy, I have come to know so many gay Christian couples whose relationships work in much the same way as our own.”

The author and speaker said that the hymn “Just As I Am” should be considered as including “my gay and lesbian brothers and sisters” to be however they want.

re: 'countless hours of prayer, study'...'just as I am'

Regarding Campolo's ridiculous statement that the classic gospel hymn "Just As I Am" should be an e-ticket entrance into Christian acceptance for the defiant LGBTXYZ crowd, perhaps he should re-read the Holy Scriptures, especially this passage in 1Cor. chapter 6 verses 9-11:

'Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God'

"Just as I am", or, "such were some of you"? What 'you am' is what you come to the cross for, because 'you am' a sinner needing to be freed from the bondage of sin; what "you were" is how the true believer comes away from the cross - freed from the bondage of sin [John 8:36]. What 'you am' then becomes what 'you were' - when you've been washed, sanctified, and justified by the finished work of the blood of the cross of Christ [Rev. 1:5] .

"Countless hours of prayer, study, conversation and emotional turmoil", says Campolo, has led him to his revelation of the need for this proposed [oxymoron] Gay-Christian revolution that would scrap all that 'cross' stuff about washing, sanctifying, and justifying. No surprise though for those familiar with Campolo as it's clear that he's never bothered with all that mumbo-jumbo himself [Phil. 3:18], so why should homosexuals have to. Come on down y'all, party time in Laodicea.

Rev. 18:4
