Robert H. Schuller (84) has been voted out by the church’s board.
In a statement issued by the church Monday, church officials said Schuller’s role with the board was merely changing.
“Now 84 years old, Dr. Schuller has been working toward semi-retirement, since total retirement is not an option for this pastor who is still just as passionate about his calling,” the statement said.
“Recently, the board of directors of Crystal Cathedral Ministries voted to change Dr. Schuller’s position from that of a voting board member to the honorary Chairman of the Board Emeritus, a non-voting position,” the statement added.
It continued to say the move would allow more time for speaking engagements and writing opportunities for Schuller.
“He will also continue to speak in the pulpit of the Crystal Cathedral and on the Hour of Power, and meet with staff in creative and vision-casting meetings,” the church release read.
“Hour of Power” is a weekly television program that was started by Schuller.
Schuller’s granddaughter, Angie Schuller Wyatt, said the vote took place several days ago. “He was ousted by the board in the same way my father was. It was surprising, but not completely unexpected,” she said.
To go from “victory to victory” gets a new meaning, after the collapse of this Church of believers in the prosperity gospel.
They must have reached a “new level” of their faith. The very level of spiritual bankruptcy.
2 Corinthians 11:4
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.
