Robert Schuller had given his son his ministry but now he has taken it back and no one seems to know why. Did the son stray from his father’s teaching in a good way (preaching the gospel?) or in a bad way (further apostasy?), no one knows and neither of them are talking:
The Rev. Robert H. Schuller removed his son Saturday as preacher on the syndicated “Hour of Power” television show less than three years after handing over to him the ministry he began more than 50 years ago.
Schuller announced the removal of his son, Robert A. Schuller, in a statement read to some 450 Crystal Cathedral congregants by Jim Coleman, the church’s president.
“It is no secret to any of you that my son, Robert, and I have been struggling as we each have different ideas as to the direction and the vision for this ministry,” his statement read.
“For this lack of shared vision and the jeopardy in which this is placing this entire ministry, it has become necessary for Robert and me to part ways.”
I don’t watch the show so I have no idea if he remained faithful to his father’s power of positive thinking type preaching or not. Do any of you guys watch the show and know what the son’s been up to?
