Making a Pinto point about a Lexus topic

The culmination of Perry Noble’s much-hyped sex sermon was a multi-part questionnaire that married couples were asked to take home and ask each other. The first question was, “Have you had sex with anyone besides me since we have been married?” (A quick aside. How many marriage counselors did NewSpring hire to have on call ...

Look who’s coming back

Gary Lamb has been hinting for a while that he wants to start another church, and an alert reader noticed that perhaps the first step in his rehabilitation occured a few weeks ago, on the same day that Noble was preaching a sex sermon inspired by Lamb’s own failure. The church that welcomed Lamb back ...

At the end of the day I just want those ...

If you track Perry Noble’s tweet feed in the sidebar, you already know that whenever he travels we get treated to almost constant belly aching about how poorly he’s treated by the airlines and his fellow travelers. His trip to California last week was no exception. Some excerpts: The pilot just informed us that the ...

Perry Noble rebukes an offensive preacher

Ocassionally, Perry Noble and I see eye to eye, as you’ll see in this short clip from his baptism sermon. You’ll see here that Noble notices a preacher who had lost control, but Noble bravely rebukes him and tells him to stop. When we hear the gospel properly preached, shouldn’t our sin offend us more ...

Not even close

Rick Warren: If you feel far from God, guess who moved? You are as close to God as you choose to be. God: No one understands; no one seeks for God.
