In the same way that you judge others, you’ll be exempt 5

Or something like that, apparently.

Noble takes a typical shot at his critics, ruling their arguments out of bounds because they don’t know him.

[Critics are] the people who know everything you are doing wrong but don’t know you.

If they don’t know Noble, we assume that he also doesn’t know them. As might be expected, that doesn’t stop him from judging them.

They lash out at you–but not out of love and or concern…but with a self righteous/arrogant attitude.

You have to admire the certainty with which he judges the attitudes and intentions of people he’s never met.

    1.) Why is Noble so hung up on his critics? He talks about them more than any other topic…mostly saying he ignores them.

    2.) I love the argument that you can’t criticize me if you don’t know me. Nevermind that I totally insulate myself from being known by the common public, and only accept “criticism” from a select few. These guys have built an interesting little world for themselves.

    More double talk from our friend Perry Noble.

    It appears Noble is catching some heat from the community over his antics. Perry Noble should expect people to be critical over some of his actions because they show:

    1. Immaturity 1 Timothy 3:1-7 Titus 1:1-9
    2. He is rash and thoughtless at times. Proverbs 10:19-20 Proverbs 21:23
    3. Foul mouth Col 3:8
    4. His refusal to meet people outside of an elite few. Romans 12:9-16 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

    Perry Noble, as a pastor, should expect criticism because as a pastor he is a community leader and representative of Jesus Christ. Refer to my comment here http://www.pajamapages.com/?p=2412# comments as an example.

    I went out of my way to try to talk to Perry Noble only to be ignored. If Perry had taken the time to respond to my attempts without his speed bump called a Campus Pastor who blocked my way, then he could have gotten to know me. We could have discussed my concerns using the Scriptures as our guide.

    As it stands, right now, Perry Noble has built a wall of legalism for himself. I find it ironic that he described the “other” churches giving the community the finger(which is very offensive to me and others in the community BTW), and he is doing that which he accused his fellow Christian churches of doing to all who critiques him.

    Link should be http://www.pajamapages.com/?p=2421#comments.

    I do think Perry should address the concerns over Brad Cooper. That is another post BTW 🙂

    Another great post. Perry doesn’t take the time to know anyone outside of his circle because he is scared of what they may tell him that is the truth. If you surround yourself with people that are always telling you good things than of course you want them around. Otherwise, it appears all he does is eat.

    I’m pretty sure that he knows about the motives of his critics because God gave him a special, secret revelation. Or something…
