Interview with Dr. Robert Schuller


By stephen - Posted on 14 August 2009

robert_schuller_2.jpgThis will be the briefest blog entry in the history of 'Christian Faith' ... OK, so we are only a few months old but this will be brief! I was checking out the new White Horse Inn website today because it is one of my favourite sites, and I came across a remarkable 1992 conversation between Dr. Robert Schuller (RS) of Crystal Cathedral and Hour of Power fame and Dr. Michael Horton (MH).

A Conversation with Dr. Robert Schuller is well worth reading; check it out. I did ... and my mind is still spinning!

Read on for an excerpt:

RS: We are not justified by faith.
MH: No, it is by grace through faith.
RS: By grace through faith, that's right.
MH: But what I'm asking is this. Justified from what? The wrath of God?
RS: Oh! I'll never use that language
MH: But the Bible does.
RS: Yes, the Bible does, but the Bible is God's book to believers primarily. Listen, and then call me a heretic if you want to, but I'm interested in attracting people, and not driving them farther away. There is language I can and will use and there are times, if we are wise, there is language we will not use....If God is a God of love, how do we handle this concept of wrath? At the outset, on the surface, it appears to be a contradiction; maybe it is. I tell you this, I have come to the conclusion that I haven't stepped into the center of truth until I've dared to step into contradiction. The Bible is a contradiction: Old Testament--Law, New Testament--Grace. Jesus is a contradiction; totally human and totally God.
