Robert Schuller – the Humpty Dumpty of Evangelicalism

A Christian friend of mine has this "coffee-table" book full of breath-taking photos of all 50 states in America. The pictures are great, but the book includes "inspirational quotes" from Dr. Robert S. Schuller. I had never heard of Schuller. Or had I? The name had a vague familiarity but I feared it was in a negative light. Who is Dr. Robert S. Schuller?

I learned that Schuller is televangelist on the Hour of Power and is one of the pioneers if not the founder of the seeker-sensitive movement. And as this article explains, Schuller is all about "self-esteem". He uses evangelical words like "hell" and "sin" and the "gospel" but pours his own meaning into them. The world loves him as he is viewed as "focusing on the positive aspects of Christianity". Translation: He's a humanist who uses theological terms to package his false gospel.

Check out this article by Gary Gilley to see how Schuller is compared to Humpty Dumpty.

Here is a very telling interview of Schuller by Michael Horton of the White Horse Inn. You can hear his heretical ideas from his own mouth.

Be wary of Schuller's teaching.

"For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds. (2 Cor 11:13-15)"
