FALSE PROPHET WARNING! #3 Max Lucado!
2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (KJV) . . . It's here folks!
Max Lucado is a best-selling “Christian” author and well-known pastor. . . . "Christian" author ??? . . . Lucado has written 60 books with over 65 million copies in print, and currently serves as senior minister at Oak Hills Church (formerly Oak Hills Church of Christ) in San Antonio, Texas.
Recently a friend sent us a copy of one of Lucado's books. We never even opened it! It went straight to the trash bin! Then I sat down and sent her some of the stuff I was finding on the internet. As it happened, I was working on these articles on Ecumenism. I did not how she would take it. Last week, we received a letter from her. She had NO idea what this man is really like. She was going to warn a friend of hers who loves Lucado's work.
She said that Lucado has a way with words, that made her feel comfortable. YES! THAT is the problem! He does indeed have a way with words and he must "comfort" millions according to his book sales. BUT . . . he is NOT a TRUE Christian in my eyes! I am putting him up against the Bible, and he is Falling FAR short!
Lucado was named “America's Pastor” by apostate Christianity Today magazine and in 2005 was named by Reader's Digest as “The Best Preacher in America.”
Mr. Lucado has been featured on The Fox News Channel, NBC Nightly News, Larry King Live, USA Today, and a bunch of other worldly shows.
Luke 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets. (KJV)
Max Lucado is an ecumenical false prophet, who teaches the Church of Christ's false doctrine that salvation is sealed by baptism. Lucado ADDS to the simplicity that is in the TRUE Gospel of Christ. (2 Cor.11:3).
Lucado falsely claims that he does not believe in Baptismal Regeneration, BUT . . . he teaches that water baptism is necessary to be sealed. "Baptism effectively seals our salvation.""In baptism God signs and seals our conversion to him."
On Max Lucado's web site, in the article: http://www.maxlucado.com/articles/topical/baptism_the_demonstration_of_devotionLucado states: “Baptism separates the tire kickers from the car buyers.”
They are only kicking the tires of salvation; but not buying it? THAT is what Lucado is teaching! He certainly IS teaching Baptismal Regeneration.
Lucado believes that water baptism is necessary to achieve salvation. That is NOT what the Bible says! First of all, salvation is FREE! (Isa.55:1; Rom.3:24; 5:1-2; Rev.22:17). And salvation is a GIFT from God (John 3:16; Rom.6:23; 2 Cor.9:15; Eph.2:8-9; 1 John 5:11).
The thief on the cross was NOT baptized! (Luke 23:43). I believe IF a person is able, he/she should be baptized be immersion, to show the world you take a stand with Jesus. BUT . . . baptism is NOT required for salvation.
Lucado speaks out of both sides of his mouth, and that is what ALL Ecumenical, New World Order (NWO) false prophets do! What is a NWO order false prophet? Greedy men who have been selected by the devil to corrupt the masses so they will be ready when the Antichrist comes into the picture. The one world church of Revelation is well on its way!
Baptismal Regeneration is a demonic, damnable heresy (2 Pet.2:1), a doctrine of devils (1 Tim.4:1), a works-based salvation which goes against what the Bible teaches! The Bible NEVER tells anyone they must be water baptized in order to be saved. Max Lucado says that baptism seals our salvation. That is NOT what the Bible teaches. The Bible teaches that those who BELIEVE are sealed with the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, (KJV)
The following quote came from the Oak Hills Church of Christ official Internet web site — updated 7/15/95; copied 7/12/96; and re-verified 2/98 (The Oak Hills Church pulled this statement from their web site in 1999, apparently due to complaints from evangelicals, and replaced it with a rather generic statement):
"It is necessary to respond to God's free offer of salvation by faith, repentance, and baptism. As we confess Christ as our Lord and are baptized by immersion, God meets us, forgives our sins and gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit that empowers each of us."
This is typical Church of Christ false doctrine. Most Christians are not aware that Max Lucado is the pastor of the Oak Hills Church of Christ. Sadly, most Christians are not even aware that the Church of Christ adds water baptism to the Gospel; and by doing so, perverts it.
Lucado falsely teaches that water baptism is an initial sign of being saved. There is absolutely NO such teaching in the Bible.
"True believers not only offer their sins, they yield their wills to Christ. Baptism is the initial test of a believing heart."
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (KJV) . . . This tells us clearly WHY the Apostle John wrote his Epistle . . . so that we could KNOW that we have eternal life. John NEVER mentions "baptism" even once. Nor does he mention it in the Gospel of John (John 20:31). IF water baptism were necessary for salvation, the beloved apostle certainly would have known and most certainly would have told us!
There is much more I found out about Max Lucado, but I feel too ill at ease to put it here. Some of it turns my stomach! If you want more, one site that tells it like it is:
