What is going on at the Crystal Cathedral?

The world found out over the weekend that Robert A. Schuller has been removed from the Hour of Power by his father, Robert H. Schuller, founder of the Crystal Cathedral, citing a lack of "shared vision." But why was there a lack of vision?

In his blog, evangelical Christian leader Albert Mohler quotes the L.A. Times in stating that the younger Schuller had focused his sermons on topics closer to evangelical Christianity--sin and the importance of the Bible, along with the usual self-esteem message that propagated from his pulpit. The elder Schuller focused more on self-esteem and less on the Word. Mohler states in his blog that the "gospel" of self-esteem, or possibility thinking, is contrary to the Word of God.

Galatians 1:9 (KJV) states "..if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed." We are seeing the consequences of this at the Crystal Cathedral.

Your thoughts???
