"I was called to start a mission, not a church. There is a difference.
... You don't try to preach ... what is sin and what isn't sin. A
mission is a place where you ask nonbelievers to come and find faith
and hope and feel love. We're a mission first, a church second." —Robert H. Schuller,
explaining his and the church board's decision on Sunday. For decades,
Schuller was known for preaching positive-thinking sermons that
appealed to a wide audience, including those turned off by traditional
religion. Since taking over three years ago, however, Schuller's son
has veered slightly from this path by preaching directly from the Bible
and taking stronger stances on various moral issues. [latimes.com,
