Tony Campolo on The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos

Tony Campolo on The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos

So, Tony was back on George's show last night. You can watch the 12 minute interview via the link above.

Tony said that Christianity's "core obligation" was to "reach out to the poor and oppressed." In the context he was speaking of the physically poor.

Hmmm. I checked the red letters in my Bible and found this: "Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, 'The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.'” Seems to me like that summary message of the Saviour's ministry is a lot more accurate than what Tony suggested.
