Priscilla Shirer, Max Lucado, and T. D. Jakes: Betraying the Gospel?

“Whatever words Shirer and Lucado express in this Easter message that sound biblical are rendered hollow by the association with modalist T. D. Jakes. It is against Scripture to treat a false teacher like Jakes as though he is a brother in Christ, and to appear to be in theological agreement with him. Teachers are held to a higher standard; therefore, it is only biblical to warn about Shirer and Lucado because they are not trustworthy teachers. They either do not have discernment, or they fail to exercise it, or they have no issues with modalism.”

(Marcia Montenegro – Christian Answers for the New Age) Popular speaker and Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer and writer and Pastor Max Lucado joined with modalist T. D. Jakes of The Potter’s House two years ago in bringing an Easter message. This is not the first time that either Shirer or Lucado have associated with Jakes in ministry. Lucado has done several positive interviews of Jakes and Shirer’s associations with Jakes are too numerous to list.


It is important to first understand the grave issues of modalism. Modalism is an ancient heresy that denies the Trinity and teaches that God manifests as Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit (like God wearing three masks one at a time). The Modalist Jesus is God the Father and is the Holy Spirit, but the Holy Spirit is usually viewed as an impersonal manifestation of God’s presence. Sometimes Jesus is called the human flesh or human costume of the Father. Modalism means that Jesus cannot be the eternal Son of God the Father since he is also the Father. God “manifests” in three modes or forms so the three persons of the Trinity are not distinct in modalism.  View article →
