Here’s what NewSpring’s pastors were reading in 2009 5

Last time I posted here, I gave you a few details about the campaign of harassment that NewSpring staff and volunteers engaged in against my family and me because I dared criticize Perry Noble. In 2010, we did take legal action against Perry, NewSpring and others, and that process was resolved a couple of months ago.

In the meantime, I wanted to show you what much of this was about. This link will take you to a 27-page PDF of all the tweets that many NewSpring members and staff thought fit to publish and read. These were posted anonymously in my name, and it took a police investigation involving Blackberry and Twitter to uncover the author. (For more background, see this post from 2009.) It won’t take a large sample to discern that something was very wrong and dangerous here. Most of the content is vile, so it’s not suitable for kids or the easily offended.

(Releasing this content is not something that we do lightly, as it contains filthy depictions of my wife, son, friends and myself. NewSpring’s lawyers often suggested to my wife and me during depositions that we were overreacting to this and being paranoid. Perhaps they still think that. Before you judge us for reacting as we did against NewSpring, please review this document, then we’ll talk some more.)

Update: This post was edited on 1/8/2013 to delete certain allegations in order to comply with a standing court order. Because the edits were legally necessary, I have not followed typical blog etiquette and showed the deletions.

    James – glad you have decided to blog again, and tell more of the story that you learned through the discovery process of your lawsuit.

    Congrats for your legal victory, and a big “thank you” to you and your family for deciding to fight the battle against a powerful church and pastor. I know it was not easy – the mental strain, and the stress this puts on the family is immense, I know. Sometimes it seems that it is not worth the pain and struggle for something like this that goes on and on for years. But I’m glad you did endure and prevail.

    Your situation along with abundant other evidence raises the dire but very sad question: is the church of which you speak a false church, as identified in Article 29 of the Belgic Confession:
