Tony Campolo becomes the latest in a long line of cultural evangelicals to come out in favour of same-sex marriage.
According to Carl Trueman
What is surprising in the statement is the complete absence of any thoughtful argumentation in his articulation of his position. Though he professes to have heard every kind of biblical argument against same-sex marriage, he does not burden the reader with any of these, or why he has found them so lacking. Instead, he prefers to use straw men, false dichotomies, and the rhetoric of social science to present his case.
Theological liberalism is decaying, long-live progressive evangelicalism.
This is folly. Jesus was clear. Scripture is clear. No amount of postmodern creativity and reimagining can substitute for obedience no matter what the culture demands of us.
From a movements perspective there is no other future for Tony Campalo and friends than spiritual impotency.
