Perry Noble Announces His New Church in South Carolina - The Church of Universal Life at Timmonsville

Timmonsville, SC (WD) - Sources close to Perry Noble say he is only days away from announcing the location of his new church - the Church of Universal Life at Timmonsville (CULT) - a little more than one year after being dismissed as senior pastor at the church he founded, Newspring Church based in Anderson.

Noble's new start-up church will be located in Timmonsville, SC, in the eastern half of South Carolina just outside of Florence, about 200 miles away from Newspring Church.

Sources say that Noble plans to build the church rapidly into an international church, with satellite CULT's planned from Toronto, followed by Tallahassee, Florida.

An Hispanic satellite in Bradenton, Florida is planned, and will be called Church de Life Universal at Bradenton (CLUB).

Perry says his CULT locations will be built on the emphasis of the "universal love of God for all people", along with the love expressed for God through the tithing of his followers.

"My greatest regret in having left Newspring was not being able to continue to teach and warn Christians of the danger of not tithing," said Noble. "Our CULT will be built through the faithful tithing of our CULT members, and the Lord will certainly prosper."

He is addicted to money and power, what would you expect from Perry Noble, who is anything but noble. That he lost control of the church he founded says volumes about his limitations and his refusal to accept them.

This is clearly satire that you missed.

I think its sad that you have descended into satire instead of actual blogging. Interestingly, I was just asked by a friend to address the issue of satire among Christians, you might be interested in what I found Scripture teaches on this subject: http://thetrustworthyword.blogspot.com/2017/07/satire-snark-or-speech-seasoned-with.html

Hi Jerry, thanks for you comment on the satirical post. I have used satire over and over on this blog and will continue to do so.

I am not at all persuaded by your long treatise using bible verses to prove your personal view that satire is a sin, of the devil, etc. Over 10 years of blogging I have heard all the analyses that criticism of "God's man" is sinful, attacking "God's church" is an abomination, that God will kill me if I continue, and on and on. Your article is no different. I've heard it all before.

If you want a bible verse for my view on blogging and satire and any other literary forms used to educate people on my blog, here it is:

"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:32

I have always tried to shine a light on the truth about charlatans in the pulpit, abuses by so-called "men of God", and will continue to do so using whatever literary form I find most useful.

Jerry Schultz...So you don't believe the words of Jesus then in Matthew 7, where he uses redundancy, hyperbole, and arguably, sarcasm to bring home his point about not judging others?

Or are you one of those Christians who goes into yoga-worthy linguistic twists to demonstrate that judging others is required, despite Jesus saying not to three times in a row in that set of scripture?

Just curious.

Dog - Very nice to have you blogging again. Keep it up!

Good stuff. You could write for the Babelonian Times!

Great post, Tom. I also like your response to Jerry Schultz, though I doubt he'll listen much. After all, he's studying at SWBTS, a bastion of clerical authoritarianism. His current church (North Richland Hills Baptist) seems to make use of membership "covenants", which are nothing more than tools of control. And he volunteers at Gateway Church, headed by Robert Morris (enabler of Mark Driscoll and unabashed adherent of enforced tithing). This info is all included on Jerry's blogging profile.

All of this, combined with what I gleaned from Jerry's blog post on sarcasm and satire, suggests to me that his favourite verse in the Bible must be, "Touch not mine anointed!!!!"
