Has Perry Noble been fired from Newspring Church?

I've heard that Perry Noble, Newspring Church lead pastor, was fired today and that it will be announced on Sunday.  Newspring is one of the largest churches in the country. It's a Southern Baptist megachurch. If confirmed, this is a huge development.

stay tuned...

I've written about Perry Noble herehere and here.


This morning I emailed Suzanne Swift, Chief Public Relations and Marketing Officer at Newspring Church, asking if Perry Noble has been fired. I received this reply this evening:

Hey Amy,

I would love to invite you to join us at church this Sunday to learn more from Perry and NewSpring Church. We will have services on Sunday at 9:15am, 11:15am, 4pm or 6pm at our Anderson Campus, located at 2940 Concord Road.

pastor perry is a annointed preacher God says touch not my annointed so be careful how you speak against a preacher

The Bible was referring to beating or killing them, not speaking out against wrongdoing...

The stongest rebukes by Jesus were reserved for Religious leaders

Anon #3 - Are you serious? Unless you are being sarcastic (which is giving you the benefit of the doubt), then you are sadly mistaken. PN may be a speaker, but he is not an annointed preacher. And even if he was, the verse you are referring to (Ps 105:15 - Touch not my annointed ones, do my prophets no harm...) is a reference to Abraham and the Patriarchs, NOT pastors. Remember, Paul says to openly and publicly rebuke pastors/elders who sin.

You don't think he is an anointed speaker? They have led more than 100k people to Christ. Seems pretty anointed to me.

satan has more than 100k followers, he must be 'annointed' too. I think Hitler had a few also.

Herd mentality is not a standard of righteousness. The major majority was wrong in Noah's day.

For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. - Matthew 24:24 ESV

ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. —"Upstate megachurch NewSpring Church leaders have removed the pastor, Perry Noble.

Pastor Shane Duffey made the announced during Sunday's service.

Duffey read a statement from church officials that said "Perry has made some unfortunate decisions" and that "he is no longer qualified" to continue as pastor.

The decision was based on Noble's personal behavior and spiritual work and included issues with alcohol and marital issues.

Noble's departure was effective July 1."

In support of comment #4, perhaps reading this will clear up what being anointed is Biblically - http://graceambassadors.com/tradition/what-pastors-should-tell-you-anointing . Another good reference here: http://www.gotquestions.org/anointed.html

I just fear that people who elevate Perry will be disturbed by today's confirmation of the news.
