PERRY NOBLE HAS SOMETHING ON HIS MIND

From THE CHRISTIAN POST:

NewSpring Church Pastor Perry Noble recently delivered a hard-hitting message on the seriousness of sexual immorality in the church. For those who take sexual sins lightly, he made it clear to them: "You're not saved." Noble tackled adultery, friends with benefits, pornography and homosexuality as the four common sins that Christians have come to tolerate.

Noble said he battled with porn addiction for more than a decade.

Church attendees were given the chance at the end of the service to seek help for any sexual sin they were struggling with.

COMMENT: So sheepshagging has dropped out of the top four, then.

And forgive my English ignorance but what the feck is "friends with benefits?" I've got friends who are on welfare. Heck, I received benefits myself until last January. Not only did I not regard it as a sin but, I promise you, I got no sexual gratification from signing on whatsoever.

  1. “Friends with benefits” is simply a polite euphemism for a friend with which you have a sexual relationship. It also seems to include the understanding that the relationship, while friendly, is more casual than if the two people involved were dating, etc…

  2. I think the US list would logically include friends-with-benefits in the top four, while in the UK that item would be replaced with sheep-worrying. As far as I know, the incidence of the latter is relatively low on this side of the water, but of course I could be wrong. . . (urban person that I am).

    It’s important that we all be vigilant and keep our sin-rankings up to date — another valued service provided by OCICBW….

  3. I expect it is which probably explains why there is so much more inbreeding within the American population. In the UK that’s only a real problem on the Fens where there aren’t any sheep.

  4. No, it isn’t that he “mentions” sin, but that he took the judgment seat and usurped God. If you don’t understand this, as it’s the most foundational of sins, you’ve been poorly taught.
