No, not that Robert Schuller; as Christianity Astray Today online tells us: “The son of a famous evangelist tells CT why he left The Hour of Power.” We’re informed that:
After parting ways with his father’s Crystal Cathedral, Robert A. Schuller left preaching to start a television career. The son of The Hour of Power founder Robert H. Schuller Sr. recently acquired AmericanLife TV with GodTube founder Chris Wyatt… (Online source)
Most people were curious about what differences theologically may have contributed to the younger Schuller’s departure. Apprising Ministries finds the following most interesting; CT’s Sarah Pulliam asks:
What theological differences do you have with your father?
My father has a different method. He likes to go more into the psychology, and I like to go more into biblical teaching. But the goals are the same, the visions are the same. I don’t think that was a problem. (Online source, emphasis added)
And, based upon what Robert A. Schuller is about to tell us, it would appear the methods really aren’t that far apart either: Use human ingenuity to give the people what they want:
Why are you leaving preaching?
I’ll probably have 5- to 10-minute messages throughout the program, but it won’t be sitting down with three points and a poem. Chris Wyatt resigned a month before I left the Cathedral because his investors told him they wanted to take God out of GodTube. Chris discovered through GodTube that nobody listened to preaching. People are interested in other ways to communicate the message, such as interviews as opposed to a talking head. (Online source, emphasis added)
Well in Show Your Faith By What You Do Charles Spurgeon, who was a genuine preacher of God’s Word, tells us what people are really interested in; keeping Christ from reigning over them:
The resolve of human nature until it is renewed is always this: “We will not have this Man to reign over us.” Men might be willing for Christ to save them, but not for Him to reign over them.
