This week, Perry Noble is telling pastors how to avoid an affair, and this morning he’s recommending that they pay more attention to their families. Fair enough, but early on in his piece comes this reference:
Too many pastors … let the expectations and demands of needy, clingy church people (notice I didn’t say Christians) DRIVE them to a place of insanity.
A few questions:
- Isn’t everyone needy?
- Shouldn’t Christians be clingy?
- Does being needy mean you’ve lost your salvation?
- Does going to church (thus becoming a church person) make you lose your salvation?
- Wasn’t the one sheep of the 99 that the shepherd went after somewhat needy?
- Isn’t it a pastor’s job to care for the needy?
- What does Noble have against Christians who go to churches other than his own?
