God Made Roberts Resign

Richard Roberts says God told him to resign from ORU:

God told him on Thanksgiving that he should resign the next day, Roberts told students in the university’s chapel.

“Every ounce of my flesh said ‘no’” to the idea, Roberts said, but he prayed over the decision with his wife and his father, Oral Roberts, and decided to step down.

Two weeks ago, he was sure that he would be back as president “in God’s timing.” No word on whether the God he spoke to this time was of the 900 foot tall variety.
