You are not the only one in Foreclosure God’s house is. Too. Where are the miracles of making water into wine and making fish appear in the fishermen’s nets. Hey God where are ya? They already threw the voice of the Cathedral Robert Schuller out. Yes , the founder of the famous Crystal Cathedral which had become a California landmark for 30 years is closed. Maybe it will become a Catholic Church they still have money.
The Cathedral is made of glass. It’s design was to give its congregation a window to God. It was the vision of one man Robert Schuller who tried to make it the Church for the world by preaching from it and sending his TV reels to signals all over the globe. His message was a type of new Christian positive message. His motivation was supported by a simple statement he used to say, “If you can dream it you can do it.”
His Ministry at its peak reached 20 Million people around the globe through his weekly television program. Hey, I could use more money, should I go on line and get one of those Ministry licenses? They say I can have one in 24 hours. But where are the drive-in theaters? Robert Schuller parted the waters for many broadcasters to follow. But today his sermon returns to his roots in an indoor movie theater by his daughter Sheila Schuller Coleman. I guess being a religious leader can also be an inherited trait as we see in so many other occupations lately as well.
He was living in a house he couldn’t afford anymore; only this was a House of God. You would think bill collectors would give a house of worship a break! No, the new bankers are not the guy from the movie “It’s A Wonderful Life.” where James Stewart gives money away to his neighbors and simply says, “Pay me back when you get on your feet again.” But maybe Robert doesn’t deserve a break, this palace he built was way to extravagant and quite pompous of him. Wasn’t God and Jesus a simple preacher without any glass palace?
