Max Lucado Apologizes to LGBTQ For Preaching Against Homosexuality, Harming Them

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.”

MAX LUCADO
February 11, 2021
Washington National Cathedral
3101 Wisconsin Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20016
Dear Cathedral Community,
It was a high honor to serve as your guest preacher on February 7, 2021. It has come to
my understanding that my presence in the Cathedral is a cause of consternation for many of
your members.
I was invited to Washington National Cathedral to preach on the topic of the Holy
Spirit. My desire was to highlight the power of the Spirit to bring comfort in these chaotic
times. However, instead of that sermon, many only heard my words from many years ago.
In 2004 I preached a sermon on the topic of same-sex marriage. I now see that, in that
sermon, I was disrespectful. I was hurtful. I wounded people in ways that were devastating.
I should have done better. It grieves me that my words have hurt or been used to hurt the
LGBTQ community. I apologize to you and I ask forgiveness of Christ.
Faithful people may disagree about what the Bible says about homosexuality, but we
agree that God’s holy Word must never be used as a weapon to wound others. To be clear, I
believe in the traditional biblical understanding of marriage, but I also believe in a God of
unbounded grace and love. LGBTQ individuals and LGBTQ families must be respected
and treated with love. They are beloved children of God because, they are made in the
image and likeness of God.
Over centuries, the church has harmed LGBTQ people and their families, just as the
church has harmed people on issues of race, gender, divorce, addiction, and so many other
things. We must do better to serve and love one another.
I share the Cathedral’s commitment to building bridges and learning how to listen -- to
really listen -- to those with whom we disagree. That work is difficult, it is hard, it is messy,
and it can be uncomfortable. But we need it now more than ever.
Respectfully,
Max Lucado

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.
