Max Lucado Begs God to Forgive him for his Ancestors owning Slaves

(Reformation Charlotte) After endorsing the pro-gay Jen Hatmaker earlier this year, Max Lucado’s new-found role of propping up heretics and false teachers seems to have hit overdrive. In January, Lucado joined Hatmaker on her podcast and gave her glowing accolades telling her that she made listening to her “easy and delightful, and yet profound at the same time.”

Lucado, who I described as “fairly orthodox though not without problems,” clearly compromised the gospel with his endorsement of Hatmaker, lending credibility to her as a minister of the gospel when clearly her “gospel” is false. But his compromise doesn’t end right there. According to himself, he is guilty of white supremacy and racism on count of what his ancestors have done and now, he begs God to forgive him for that.

In a disturbing prayer event held in San Antonio, Lucado spoke to the (thankfully, scarce) audience telling them that God had brought it to his attention that he needed to address the rampant racism in his life. This racism he refers to, of course, is “systemic racism” — a nefarious term used to blame the plights of minority communities on the shoulders of white people and guilt them into embracing social justice.

In his prayer, he acknowledges that “people owning other people” was a sin and that “forcing blacks to sit in the back of the bus” was sin, then proceeds to beg God to forgive him of that sin — a sin he did not actually commit.

“Our ancestors were wrong. They were wrong. When they bought and sold human beings, that was wrong. When they claimed superiority over slaves, over blacks, that was wrong. When they refused to share water fountains, restaurants, and city buses with your children, your chosen precious children, that was a sin. And we are so very sorry. We are sorry for the pain of that day.”

“I am sorry that I have been silent. I am sorry that my head has been buried in the sand,” Lucado said. “My brothers and sisters are hurting and I am sorry. I have made them to feel less than. I did not help. I did not hear. I did not see. I did not understand.” He then goes on to admit that he has used racial slurs, such as “wetback,” to address…

A CALL TO ACTION

Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by censorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
