This is the forty-sixth installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section. Let’s have some fun!
Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a sermon clip of Perry Noble, pastor of New Spring Church, Greenwood, South Carolina.
Wow. And he calls other people stupid. This guy is totally taking things out of context. Trying to make the story of Cain and Able about tithing. There is absolutely no context given, in Genesis, about why there was an offering. So, how was Cain to know why his offering wasn’t accepted. God even spoke directly to Cain.
Ok, I’m going to stop now. I could go on for an hour, shredding this guy and his stance on tithing.
Yes spot on.
He certainly would not pass a seminary hermeneutics class on that basis.
I’m supposed to take serious a pastor wearing a tee shirt on the platform? I know we’ve went casual but he looks like a nerd.
I don’t care how he dresses and I have trouble caring if he is in any way ‘correct’ in his use of scripture. He is a quick-draw, gunslinger preacher…. before I can look up one scripture he has referenced three others so that finally I am drowning in the glory of Gawd’s deep. Bully shite. I’d give him ten percent if I could shove it down his throat and shut him up for ten seconds… Gawd, I hate bullies for Christ so much…
I guess on the bright side, he isn’t mentioning that not tithing makes you open season for demons. Now it is god personally attacking you for not giving this douchebag ten percent, and the bible has no contradictions my ass.
Your kid is getting sick because you are not tithing.
God, who is the very definition of love, is willing to make your CHILD physically unwell, as a way to stick it to you for not giving him a cut of your paycheck. The mob has nothing on God when it comes to extortion, apparently.
If that were even true, God could bite my ass and stick my middle finger in his eye.
J.D. Matthews, only a preacher could put together visual imagery like “God could bite my ass and stick my middle finger in his eye!” I’s send you a pulpit any day! Can’t stop laughing.
They have a “campus” in a nearly empty shopping complex across the highway from my neighborhood in Charleston. I know lots of friends and co-workers who now go there because of all the “great kids activities, cool music and uplifting, relevant preaching”, their statement, not mine. Every single one of those folks left other previously “with it” churches. Jeez, look at their webpage! A whole section devoted to tithing.
And now, because I am an oldbroad (get OFF my lawn, heehee), let me rant about the horrendous traffic mess this place causes on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday! Because the parking lot of the shopping center is lined with gas stations, banks and fast food joints on the roadside, these yahoos try and beat the exiting car line by cutting thru other business’ parking areas. Been open less than a year and already causing fender benders and near misses. UGH – rant over. I surely do miss the Waccamaw Pottery that used to be in that space………………
