Check out the latest blog from Pastor CEO Perry Noble at http://www.perrynoble.com/2009/12/14/this-sh_t-is-awesome/. Read the article and ask yourself why this man is a pastor of a church? The filth and warped logic coming from Perry Noble is nothing but pure rebellion and sin. Perry Noble scoffs at the Scriptures and openly brings reproach upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I’m not sure which Jesus Perry Noble follows, but my Jesus warned us against using filthy speech (Col 3:8) and living in the culture that the world promotes all around us (1 John 2:14-16).

If you want to build a great church then go after the people that no one else wants!  That’s what Jesus did…and because of that we are included in HIS Kingdom.  Quite often something will happen in our church that will remind me that, though we are far from perfect, we are going after the people that I believe Jesus would have gone after…

So…the other day in our children’s area this happened…

A first time visitor (probably around 9 or 10 years old) walked into our 4th-5th grade room in KidSpring at our Anderson campus and was BLOWN away!

He looked at the children’s worker who met him at the door, and, after looking around the room he said, “you guys have a wii?”

“Yep,” she said.

“And you guys have a PSIII?” he said!

“Yes sir, we sure do,” she replied.

“And we can play these for free?”  He asked.

“Yep,” she answered.

Then he turned to his friend and said out loud, “This Sh_t is awesome!”

Now I am quite sure that makes some of you very uncomfortable; after all, you don’t want the cussing kids coming into church and messing up your perfect child.

However…after hearing this story from one of our children’s staff I was INCREDIBLY pumped up because I thought, “THAT is why we do church!”  I know many churches would not want a kid like that…but we do because HE MATTERS TO JESUS…even though his behavior is not perfect!(source)

Don’t you want your children going to NewSpring? Maybe when they get old enough to go to FUSE, Brad Cooper will have them saying “BAMF” see: My concern with Brad Cooper from NewSpring Church and Brad Cooper’s twisted defense for cussing. Before that they can follow the NewSpring Children’s minister life coach Pudge Huckaby and learn all the bonuses of listening to filthy rap music in order to see the love of Jesus see: The sour fruit of Perry Noble: NewSpring Children’s minister defends his love of filthy rap music!

The filth pouring from this The Seeker-Sensitive Purpose Driven Church for the Carnal Nature of Mankind is shameful. May god convict Perry Noble so that he will repent of this sin and stop making a mockery of the Church of Jesus Christ.

Perry Noble and all from NewSpring Church who reads this blog need to ponder the following:

1 aTherefore be imitators of God, as beloved children;

2   and awalk in love, just as Christ also bloved 1you and cgave Himself up for us, an doffering and a sacrifice to God 2as a efragrant aroma.

3 But aimmorality 1or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among 2saints;

4   and there must be no afilthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which bare not fitting, but rather cgiving of thanks.

5   For this you know with certainty, that ano 1immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom bof Christ and God.

6 aLet no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things bthe wrath of God comes upon cthe sons of disobedience.

7   Therefore do not be apartakers with them;

8   for ayou were formerly bdarkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as cchildren of Light

9   (for athe fruit of the Light consists in all bgoodness and righteousness and truth),

10   1atrying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.

11   aDo not participate in the unfruitful bdeeds of cdarkness, but instead even 1dexpose them;

12   for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret.

13   But all things become visible awhen they are 1exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.

14   For this reason 1it says,

aAwake, sleeper,

And arise from bthe dead,

And Christ cwill shine on you.”

15 Therefore 1be careful how you awalk, not bas unwise men but as wise,

16   1amaking the most of your time, because bthe days are evil.

17   So then do not be foolish, but aunderstand what the will of the Lord is.

18   And ado not get drunk with wine, 1for that is bdissipation, but be cfilled with the Spirit,

19   aspeaking to 1one another in bpsalms and chymns and spiritual dsongs, esinging and making melody with your heart to the Lord;

20   aalways giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to 1bGod, even the Father;

21   1aand be subject to one another in the 2bfear of Christ. [1]

  1. Okay so NewSpring has a WII and a PS3. But do they have Jesus, crucified and risen for all the sinners at NewSpring including the youth, and those who’ve been there for years?

    Regarding PN’s recent blog post titled “This Sh_t is Awesome”, I remember asking my son a few years ago, he was in the forth grade at the time, what He learned on one particular Sunday at NS. He recounted to me an activity where he and the kids ate chocolate fudge out of diapers. Irony….

    I understand Perry’s major point to a degree, but I bore of his need to be constantly edgy and controversial.

    As others have said, what you draw people with is often what you draw people to, and what you draw people with is that with which you keep people. Bait and switch and shock and awe tactics doesn’t always work as intended.
