Doggone it, I want to cry.
Another one bites the dust.
Pastor Perry Noble had to step down from New Spring church.
The pundits are out in full force.
“I told you so.” “Mega-church pastors are evil.” Similar sentiments echo every single time one of the good guys goes down.
And to me, they are good guys. Guys like me who started a church in a living room. Guys like me who saw success and growth. Guys like me, guys better than me. Their success was much larger than mine. Brothers. Pastors.
None of them have gone down for the obvious big no-no. Sexual sin. Or money. The most recent one was alcohol. But it wasn’t really alcohol. It was pride. He wouldn’t submit to rebuke.
It’s always pride.
And I want to cry.
