LTRP Note: The following out of house article by Christian News Network is from February 16th, 2023, but even though it is over two months old, we believe it is another piece of the puzzle regarding the “Asbury revival.” For those who are not familiar with the names Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo, you may visit our research site and use the search engine to find ample information about both of them. They are part of the emergent/progressive/woke church.

(Christian News Network – 2/16/23) — By Michael Marcavage
In an online interview that has been now viewed close to 80,000 times in just a few days, several Asbury students and an adjunct professor joined false teacher Tony Campolo’s pro-gay, progressive protégé, Shane Claiborne, to discuss what many are calling a “revival” at Asbury University on the YouTube channel for “Red Letter Christians”—a group headed by Campolo and Claiborne.
According to the Red Letter Christians (RLC) website, Tony Campolo, 87, a well-known self-identifying evangelical speaker and author who came out in support for “full acceptance” of homosexuality in the Church in 2015, is “professor emeritus of sociology at Eastern University and a former faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania,” and, “[f]or 40 years, led the Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education.”
The site states that RLC “began in 2007 as a community of Christian authors and speakers meeting for a time of fellowship to discuss the pressing issues of the day,” and then, in December 2010, “co-founders Tony Campolo and Shane Claiborne launched a blog as a home for the RLC network of speakers and authors to promote,” what they call, “Red Letter living.”
The video, published to the RLC YouTube channel on February 12, called “Update from the Asbury University Revival” is a part of the duo’s YouTube channel and has attracted tens of thousands of views—far beyond any other views of the other videos posted on the RLC channel.
