"Jesus Isn't Enough"––TONY CAMPOLO Needs Mysticism

If you're surprised at the following statement from Tony Campolo then you don't know the real Tony Campolo:

"When I sensed that believing in Jesus wasn't enough and yearned for more, I turned to older forms of prayer."

What is Campolo talking about ? What Campolo is referring to here is an ever increasing popularity in various forms of mysticism. I guess this is one of the latest trends sweeping through christianity today.

There is absolutely no biblical support for dabbling in this ancient form of what some people think is an experiential encounter with the Divine. Bad enough Campolo quotes from what he even admits is the counter-reformation Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Tony Campolo is getting his spiritual inspiration from a person who was involved in the attempt to COUNTER what Martin Luther and numerous other reformers accomplished through guidance of the Holy Spirit known as THE PROTESTANT REFORMATION. Maybe Campolo forgot what that was all about.

THIS ARTICLE demonstrates the vulnerability of men like Tony Campolo to become suckered into practicing contemplative prayers and repeating mantras believing it to be an avenue of entering into the presence of God.

DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME...or anywhere for that matter.


(I will be posting more articles on Tony Campolo and his views on how Muslims may also be among those who enter into heaven even though they may not even know Jesus Christ.)

I am wondering what your opinion on the musician Derek Webb is ( or Dallas Willard? I am hoping that in evaluating these people you have read some of their work?

Hmmm...the music and books written by Derek and Dallas have been highly endorsed by either Brian McLaren or Richard Foster...hey, I know a really good book that's been written and endorsed by the Holy Spirit...
