Robert Schuller and the New Age

Schuller's all-inclusive dream becoming a reality.
See Rethink Conference 2008 with major Christian leaders helping to bring it to pass.

From Robert Schuller's book, My Journey ...
"I met once more with the Grand Mufti (a Muslim), truly one of the great Christ-honoring leaders of faith. ... I'm dreaming a bold impossible dream: that positive-thinking believers in God will rise above the illusions that our sectarian religions have imposed on the world, and that leaders of the major faiths will rise above doctrinal idiosyncrasies, choosing not to focus on disagreements, but rather to transcend divisive dogmas to work together to bring peace and prosperity and hope to the world...." p. 502

"Standing before a crowd of devout Muslims with the Grand Mufti, I know that we're all doing God's work together. Standing on the edge of a new millennium, we're laboring hand in hand to repair the breach." p. 501
Robert Schuller interviewed New Ager, Gerald Jampolsky, in October 2004. Schuller's web site began promoting and advertising Jampolsky's 1999 book, Forgiveness
(with a foreword by Neal Donald Walsch).

(For more information of Robert Schuller's connection to the New Age, see Warren Smith's book, Deceived on Purpose.)

A Course in Miracles (Promoted by
Gerald Jampolsky)
"The book, A Course in Miracles, has been taught at Robert Schuller's Crystal Cathedral and is right in line with Schuller's philosophy. This is a book from a disembodied voice dictating its contents, who claimed to be Jesus Christ. Its purpose was to correct the errors in the Bible. The Course teaches that "forgiveness" is simply recognizing that sin does not exist and therefore there is nothing to forgive. To accept the Course's teachings is to reject all Biblical doctrine, yet those who embrace it are able to call themselves Christians. This book's promotion to ignore our sinful nature is right in line with Schuller's philosophy."

His Own Words

"There are toxic religions ...those where you resent those who don't believe what you believe."—Robert Schuller, talking to Gerald Jampolsky, 10/2004

"I don't think anything has been done in the name of Christ and under the banner of Christianity that has proven more destructive to human personality and, hence, counterproductive to the evangelism enterprise than the often crude, uncouth, and unchristian strategy of attempting to make people aware of their lost and sinful condition."
Robert Schuller, Self-Esteem, The New Reformation
(pp. 159-160)
