Schuller resignation from Crystal Cathedral board is end of era
Robert H. Schuller
Robert H. Schuller and his wife cited the "negative" environment at the church he founded when announcing their resignation from the Crystal Cathedral board.
"We cannot continue to serve on the board in what has become an adversarial and negative atmosphere especially since it now seems that it will not be ending any time soon," Arvella Schuller said in a statement Saturday.
The Schullers' resignation marks the end of an era. For the first time, no family member is serving on the board of the church that Robert Schuller founded 42 years ago....

DR.Schuller and his very dear wife treated me as a trusted friend.Although I was hired as a actor,it turned out I could GOD'S SPIRIT every night.of every performance! It brought me back to the foldd.Thank you Dr.and Mrs.Schuller for letting " CREATION" bring God's love To me and so many who saw the event.God bless them, bob munns
Something beautiful for the ego, the early church got along just fine without towers of Babel or pagan temples, which the Romish church puts up all over the place. This particular one was built by another heathen, so though this one should be well suited to their wants. just like the bishops' palaces throughout the country, there are monuments to man's vanity. Spending huge money on buildings is not glorifying God, but glorifying man who built them.
There is only one building that was sanctioned by God, and that was the Temple. I never heard the synagogues, had to reach the same grandeur.
Chuck Swindoll, a modern prince of preachers, once wrote a few years back that Protestants should "Live Above the Level of Mediocrity." There's no biblical warrant requiring you, your children and your grandchildren to worship in a hovel.
In ancient times, the current generation built a Cathedral, block-by-block, for the next. This remains holy ground to this day.
Individualism, materialism and consumerism prevent such a vision from even materializing in most Christian circles. Their wealth will die with them.
The one exception is the Protestant cathedral-equivalent: A megachurch cleverly camouflaged as a business park or arena. And when things go south, there'll still be no trace of Christ anywhere.
Christ's Pattern for His Church says nothing about having fancy auto showrooms (or fancy chariot showrooms, for that matter, ) e.g. cathedrals, for a physical building to house an assembly of Christians. Except that I would think the highest and best use that building would be for automobile sales or insurance sales, probably the right people got a heathen cathedral, the Romish church, Come out of the Catholic Church.
