Tony Campolo quotes

Sadly, we do a much better job of making people feel guilty than we do of delivering them from the guilt we create. We need to confess this and change our ways.

Sigmund Freud was the apostle of disbelief. He was the one who made psychoanalysis a part of our culture, and in so doing he kicked out a flying buttress that had been essential for holding up our cathedral of faith.

Often, we ignore the fact that our spiritual condition and psychological state of mind are highly affected by what is happening to us physically.

If a guy is intimidated by a woman in leadership, he has real problems with his own concepts of masculinity. That's a harsh statement, but I believe it to be true.

What if Barack Obama established a Presidential Advisory Committee that would meet once every couple of months, bringing together the former presidents for a conference in order to seek their collective wisdom? There is a wealth of experience in former presidents that generally goes untapped.

I contend the state ought to do its thing and provide legal rights for all couples who want to be joined together for life. The church should bless unions that it sees fit to bless, and they should be called marriages.

I don't know of many evangelicals who want to deny gay couples their legal rights. However, most of us don't want to call it marriage, because we think that word has religious connotations, and we're not ready to see it used in ways that offend us.

That's what they do in Europe. You go down to the city hall and you become legally connected. You have a civil union there. Then, if you're religious, you go down to the church, and the church blesses the union. That gets the problem solved.

There are reasons why Religious Right Evangelicals will continue to dominate religious discourse, not only in their own sector of the Christian community, but also in what transpires in mainline denominations.

Often, we ignore the fact that our spiritual condition and psychological state of mind are highly affected by what is happening to us physically. Sometimes depression is simply the result of exhaustion.

Prior to ROE V. WADE, abortions were common even though they were illegal. I don't think making them illegal again is going to solve the problem.

I don't doubt that God can bring good out of tragedies, but the Bible is clear that God is not the author of evil!

Clinton's successor in the White House, George W. Bush, was committed to expanding government spending for faith-based initiatives.

I contend that it's impossible to read the Sermon on the Mount and not come out against capital punishment.

I propose that the government should get out of the business of marrying people and, instead, only give legal status to civil unions.

I think it goes back to the fact that the evangelical community often does not have a biblical vision of God.

I've got some repenting to do.

In religious circles, depression is often deemed to be a spiritual condition that can be cured with prayer.

Let us preach Christ, let us be faithful to proclaiming the Gospel, but let's leave judgment in the hands of God.

Marriage should be viewed as an institution ordained by God and should be out of the control of the state.
