Move over Billy Graham (or is that Rick Warren), because you’ve been replaced as ‘America’s Pastor.’ Seems Max Lucado now wears that title. According to a piece over at Tulsa World, the popular preacher and best-selling author is working with Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) on a project. Evidently Rev. Lucado hasn’t gotten the message that TBN, which some call Trinity Blasphemy Network, is a haven for heretics and that deceased founders, Paul and Jan Crouch, were wolves in sheep’s clothing. Their son, Matthew, who took the reins of power after his mother’s passing, is cut out of the same cloth as his parents. It is no secret that the Crouch family has continually caused division in the visible Church. What does the Bible say about those who cause division?
I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. For your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, but I want you to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil. (Romans 16:17-19)
Now to Tulsa World’s report:
Max Lucado, one of America’s best-known Bible teachers and author of books that have sold more than 100 million copies, was at the old Spaghetti Warehouse building in downtown Tulsa this week taping a video series about an upcoming book.
The Lucado project is part of the vision of Tulsa filmmaker Tom Newman to retool Christian television to reach today’s generation. The series, called “Unshakable Hope,” is being produced with the Oklahoma Film + Music Office, using the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program.
Newman is program director for Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world’s largest Christian television network, a position he assumed about a year and a half ago. TBN has 30 networks in 14 languages reaching millions of people around the globe.
