An analysis of Noble’s unrepentant apology

An analysis of Noble's unrepentant apology
Perry Noble and I agree on something important: his Christmas Eve sermon was no accident. Late last week, Noble published a letter to his church that looked like he was apologizing for the sermon, though a careful reading shows that the apology was very limited, and the important theological problems created by the sermon were not only retained, but embraced.

Noble rescinds the Ten Commandments for 2015
(1/2/2015: Updated with NewSpring’s response. See at the end of the post.) On Christmas Eve, Perry Noble gifted the world a rewritten Ten Commandments.
