Max Lucado, author and pastor who, in recent years, has taken a sharp turn to the left in embracing not only the woke social justice movement but taking a soft stance on homosexuality, has now taken an even sharper turn away from biblical orthodoxy by comparing the Holy Spirit to a mother. Lucado’s entire sermon was predicated on the notion that the Holy Spirit is feminine.
Last year, Lucado made headlines after endorsing and giving glowing accolades to pro-sodomy Jen Hatmaker and then again after leading an outdoor prayer service asking God to forgive him for his ancestors owning slaves. He also endorsed flaming heretic, Steven Furtick.
After being invited to speak at the Washington National Cathedral this past Sunday, Lucado preached a sermon on the Holy Spirit. While his sermon was pretty awful from a biblical perspective — though, most unrepentant sinners who love their sin probably appreciated his “say yes to Jesus” gospel — it was toward the end that he made these outlandish, even blasphemous comments.
Toward the end, he told a story of his grandson getting his first haircut. The crux of the story was that this child was scared and the only one who was able to calm him was his mother. He then goes on to say that “such is the role of the mother…the Holy Spirit, the mother-heart of God, will soothe you as well.”
