Or maybe himself. Perry Noble has appropriately named his ministry after himself. (Can you imagine Paul starting his own shop up – Apostle Paul Ministries? Of course, with the trash that Perry is spewing, maybe it is better to not have the name of the Lord associated with it.
You will have to go here for the video, A Little Leaven: Purpose-Driven Hireling.
Below are some statements that I picked out.
(fictional voice) “I want to go to a church where I can know the pastor…(Perry) “You need to leave. I don’t have time. I love my wife, I love my kids – I don’t have the time – and I will not sacrifice my family on the ministry alter so I can come eat food that I don’t like and hang out with people that make me uncomfortable”.
“If I come to see you in the hospital, y’all know it’s bad. The guy behind me has the bag you’re leaving the room in.”
“Here’s the problem; you think I care.”
The word ‘pastor’ has become a title, a position to be held. The Greek word actually means ‘shepherd,’ calling to mind those that tend a flock, care for them, lead them, and protects them. Perry Noble is a man concerned only with himself, not the flock. He has willingly told his congregation this, but they stick around.
And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; (Ephesians 4:11-13 NKJV)
