Heard God?

November 29, 2007

Richard Roberts, the son of Oral Roberts and the embattled president of Oral Roberts University that his father founded, recently announced his resignation. He has been under fire after being accused of using millions of dollars of university money on private trips, gifts, and horses. When he announced his resignation, he said that he did not want to but that God told him to step down. ORU presidents have often spoke of what God told them to do (such as Oral himself basically saying "give money or God will kill me!"). But this may be the first time I have thought that one of them actually heard the message correctly!
