Perry Noble gave his annual pep talk to like-minded pastors yesterday and told them they need not worry if their parishioners get offended at what they do in their churches and leave. It’s a good thing when people leave your church, quoth the preacher man.
To support his point, he quoted scripture from
To illustrate his point, he said that the people who leave are the equivalent of–how shall we say it nicely?–bowel movements.
Warming to his task, he went just a little further. If they won’t leave naturally, give them something to help them on their way.
Sometimes an enema is the best thing that can happen to a church. (Perry Noble)
Might I pose a few questions to Perry and those who cheered for him today?
- If most of these folk are leaving for other churches, what are you saying those churches are filled with?
- Why should I walk in your front door if you’re so eager to push me out your back door?
- If your church needs an enema, what have you been feeding it?
