Naming critics (Updated)

Because Perry still won’t name names, I will. The critic Perry refers to in this post is me. This is a huge, complicated story, and I’ll have it for you soon. UPDATE: I don’t mean to be teasing you, but this is going to take a while (probably late tonight or early tomorrow). The whole ...

How to work through complex problems in one easy step

Perry Noble puts his critics on the couch for some psychoanalysis this morning. He starts from the admirably humble position of assuring us that if someone doesn’t like him, it’s because they’re jealous of him. If that bombshell doesn’t seal the argument for you, he adds this: Why do “Christians” hate people who don’t believe ...

A priceless pair of proclamations from Perry’s preaching

Perry Noble last week: My prayer for this series is that singles will view being single NOT as a sickness, but rather as a season that needs to be embraced in order to learn all that God desires to teach them. Perry Noble this week: We started to hand two marbles out to every single ...

Imparted Wisdom from Impart
Pastor Steven Furtick » Blog Archive » Married Guys Listen Up. In this video from IMPART, Steven Furtick is joined on stage by special guest Perry Noble.

What makes critics tick?

Perry Noble has revived an old post about why people criticize him. It’s an interesting list, but one that–to our great distress–totally nails PP.

Please understand this…most people do not have the guts to share ...

Steven Furtick begins this post by making a reference to 2 Samuel 24 : God got very angry with David for taking a census in 2 Samuel 24.  In fact, this single act of disobedience resulted in a plague that destroyed 70,000 people.  The level of punishment doesn’t seem to fit the crime.  All David ...

Noble: We don’t fight critics (except when we do)

Perry Noble took a few minutes to coach his congregations on how not to respond to critics last Sunday. Here’s some of what he said (after bragging about asking God for permission to throw over the table of a young woman at a local restaurant who dared to talk about entertainment in church within earshot of Noble): We ...

Where does the profanity come from?

According to NewSpring’s creative pastor, Perry Noble’s pulpit profanity comes from God’s leading and Jesus’ example. Perry uses a lot of strong words in his sermons…how does he get away with that? never confuses sermon prep with his quiet time. in his quiet time whatever he’s studying God will speak into him something that is ...

Exegesis by opinion poll

Perry Noble is going through a series of posts where he describes how he prepares his sermons–in case you ever wanted to preach like Perry. It took a while for Scripture to enter the conversation, but it made a cameo appearance yesterday as a subpoint under his main point about being creative. After acknowledging that ...

Noble describes his vision

Perry Noble delivered his much anticipated presentation at Catalyst this morning and taught about vision. In case you weren’t able to attend, here’s some of what you missed. When we make any agenda of the church anything other than Jesus, we make the church a prostitute…. You need a Holy Ghost enema…. God will always ...
