Richard Roberts announces return to full-time ministry

Tells "700 Club" that former ORU professors' lawsuit is because "there are people in this world who are against ministries.”

"We're going to go on with the call of God on our lives," former Oral Roberts University president Richard Roberts told The 700 Club today. "God will deal with people and false accusations. All I can say is that it's not true, and leave it at that. God is the ultimate judge."

Roberts said he will remain a "spiritual regent" to the university and CEO of the Oral Roberts Evangelistic Association as he returns to a full-time healing ministry.

"The healing ministry has always been my first love," he said. "I am immersing myself fully back into the healing ministry, which was what I was doing before I became president of ORU."
