Max Lucado was invited to speak at the Washington National Cathedral — an apostate Episcopalian Church in Washington D.C. — two weeks ago where he preached a sermon comparing the Holy Spirit to a woman and calling Him the “mother heart of God.”
Prior to the invitation, homosexuals were up-in-arms over his apparent pro-traditional marriage views and desperately sought to have him disinvited from speaking at the church. However, he preached anyway.
Yesterday, Max Lucado issued a letter of apology to the homosexual community where he asked for forgiveness for his words which he says “have hurt or been used to hurt the LGBTQ community.”
“Faithful people may disagree about what the Bible says about homosexuality,” Lucado says in the letter, “but we agree that God’s holy Word must never be used as a weapon to wound others.” He also said that he believes in a “God of unbounded grace and love” and that “LGBTQ individuals and LGBTQ families must be respected and treated with love” because they are “made in the image and likeness of God.”
The full letter can be read below:
Last year, Lucado made headlines after offering his endorsement to pro-homosexual Jen Hatmaker and subsequently preaching a sermon where he asked God to forgive him because his ancestors were slaveholders.
Lucado, who has been previously described as fairly orthodox though not without problems, lends credibility to a movement that is patently and biblically false — the “gay Christian” movement. To tell someone like Hatmaker — who clearly denies the gospel and the clear teachings of Scripture — that she and her followers are “believers” is to deny the inerrancy of Scripture and authority of God himself. One can only hope that Lucado will repent of this serious heresy.
Now that he has taken this even further and affirmed practicing homosexuals as “children of God” and “faithful people” who may “disagree about what the Bible says about homosexuality,” we must clearly mark him as a false prophet of God and avoid him at all costs.
