MOUNDS, OK -- Oral Roberts' crusades took him around the world, but his final sermon was delivered at a tiny Native American church in rural Tulsa County. Oral Roberts made his last trip to Oklahoma three months ago for the inauguration of ORU's new

Tiny churches are the only churches I've ever really felt true fellowship in, the only ones I ever thought God would call home. These Mammoth churches with membership so huge you have to watch the sermon on a big screen--with canned music added in--are an abomination. There is a beauty in a tiny church, a glory that stays with you. I remember tiny white painted wooden churches in Alabama and North Carolina, and very tiny but lovely St. Hilda's in Atlanta's Little Five Points neighborhood. You might fit a hundred people in such places, but it would be crowded. There were usually smaller numbers though--and everyone knew each other and welcomed a stranger like family. There was grace there.

So his final sermon was yet another example of just what a low life scum he was. Preaching to those who were basically forced to convert to his religion.

As someone who is part Native American myself, it saddens me that so many have forgotten who they are, and where they came from.

Panthera Leo, I like the idea of everyone practicing earth centric beliefs. We and this planet would be a lot better off if we did.

I am 64 and this "man" has haunted my life since my last name was Roberts. My dad, as very spiritual man, not organized religion, used to tease me that Oral was my Uncle. I have never liked the fire and brimstone acts from any church. I just don't believe God is vindictive and hateful toward HIS children. He can't preach forgiveness if He doesn't practice it Himself. I wish I could say I am sorry to see Oral gone, but just can't bring myself to be that Christian. I think he was a hateful, condemning man. And I KNOW God did not just "SPEAK" to him. How arrogant and ignorant to make money this way off people. Bet he had a surprise at the pearly gates!

Personally, I liked Oral Roberts, he did give his life to the church regardless if you liked his place of worship, he did try to give what he could for salvation of at least some of the souls that went.

He was a big movement when it came to some of the presidents, he did his best and I was sorry to hear of his passing.

He must have been drawn to the native church and felt more at home there to have finished his teaching there, I think that speaks volumes, for the native communities and his later life.

Thannxxx Terry.. what a wonderful man who dedicated his life to serving... he had a heart for the people and what was wonderful is that he never saw the native Americans as different.. he was a man for all nations, colour and creeds... may he rest in heaven with his beloved Father and he will be greatly rewarded in heaven for his dedication and compassion on mankind.... and for reaching out to those that were hurting.. he truly was an example of a great shepherd caring for the flock.. the world will be a poorer place without him
