    I tell you.... these young preachers these days....... can you believe the audacity of some people........ to try to use the BIBLE as his source for his preaching. What is this world coming to??? With all the good books out there on positive thinking how could he even think of using the BIBLE??? :rolleyes:

    Wow, what a coincidence! A few weeks ago as I was flipping through the channels I caught the Hour of Power with the younger Shuler speaking and I had commented to my wife how surprisingly biblical his message was. And she jokingly said that he better watch out or he would get fired. I said he couldn't be fired because he is the hereditary preselect to the throne of the Crystal Cathedral. I guess she was right!

    If he was preaching the Bible, it's really sad he was fired. This shows Schuller's true colors.

    I guess Schuller wants teaching that is more Ernest Holmes than the Bible.

    History is full on entrepenuers (sp?) who built great companies/organizations in their youth and wanted to pass them on to their sons, but could not do it. They continued to hold control into their old age and destroyed everything they had built. It is not an unusual phenomenom. It probably explains what is going on between the Schulers as well as anything.

    God's word is eternal. What could last longer? So preach the word.

    Here is what the LA Times wrote, notice the creative use of ellipses and the inclusion of an unverified quotation in blue:

    "I was called to start a mission, not a church," Schuller told his audience Sunday. "There is a difference. . . . You don't try to preach. . . what is sin and what isn't sin. A mission is a place where you ask nonbelievers to come and find faith and hope and feel love. We're a mission first, a church second."


    Transcript from the Schuller website, with the LA Times selective quotations in red:

    "In the early seasons I was called to start a mission, not a church. There is a difference, quite a difference. The church is a gathering of people who share a faith, ritual, creeds, etc. I have utmost respect for the church as an institution. But a mission is a place where you do not try to preach and convert people to an institution.
    A mission is a place where you ask non-believers to come and find hope and feel love! I will probably never preach a sermon on some of the creeds of our denomination because we are a mission first, we're a church second."

    I guess Schuller Senior knows a thing or two about tickling ears and drawing crowds. I saw that preaching about sin would be the downfall of his little empire. He probably just couldn't stand the thought of losing all of that.

    Of course Bible believing Christians would have seen through Schuller's program a long time ago -- I wonder if his son will now start a new reformed-schuller group.

    Might save some souls if he does.

    in Christ,

    Bob

    drfuss: It was in my local paper that Robert A. Schuller has resigned from the Papa Schuller's church and intends to get into another ministry. On another forum, a poster said the California local newspaper indicated he was going to start another church in the area. Young Schuller has not announced this, but the local paper did. It could be a rumor about him starting another church in the area.

    It is a good thing his son was fired. Pastors will be able to watch and see what happens when a man is left to do things his way and not God's.
