Bad Theology, Bad Politics

Here is a video from famed spiritual adviser Tony Campolo, who is most famous for being the spiritual adviser to Bill Clinton (wait a minute isn't promoting yourself as the spiritual adviser to Bill Clinton like a bad thing!). This video was an interview that Tony gave on Canadian TV whereby he is just espousing bad theology. Mr. Campolo is telling folks that true Christianity is all about helping the poor. Not loving God, not about repenting from our sins and walking with God. But Christianity has more to do with Global Aid Packages and Social Welfare. Essentially a works based theology. I am amazed just how far off track we have gotten. I would be interested in hearing what others think about this guy. Oh, BTW- Tony is also a big player in the Emergent Church movement - as if that's some huge surprise.
