Hour of Power no more?
The Crystal Cathedral is going bankrupt. Financially that is. It had already hit bankruptcy, theologically speaking, some years ago. When Robert Sr., who distilled the Gospel down into a modern American Zig Ziglar seminar, canned his own son for daring to suggest they should spend more time focused on what the Bible actually teaches, you knew it wasn't long for the world. The article suggests other mega-churches are having the same financial problems, though doesn't give any particulars. Not surprising. But the Crystal Cathedral, standing as a testimony to the inevitable decline that the essence of Protestantism seems destined to follow, has finally seen its finances go where its message went sometime ago.
