PSYCH! Perry Noble isn’t confessing to being a greedy merchant of nothingness, silly. No, his new sermon series is just using the “irony” to assert he does NOT want 10% of your salary, and so… give him 10% of your salary. Get it? The “irony” makes it the opposite of cringe-inducingly transparent, Orwell-level predatory psychology.
“I love taking the offering in church. I’m sure you expected me to say that; after all, I am a megachurch pastor and it’s really easy to take shots at guys like me when we talk about money,” said Noble…
“If you have ever been to a concert, you ‘gave an offering.’ Concert tickets and experiences are at an all-time high, and no one is sitting in the concert angry and complaining out loud that ‘the only reason they are doing this is because they want my money!'” [Christian Post]
Noble is the CEO of NewSpring, a house of McWorship with a name and logo seemingly picked up at the asset liquidation sale of a bankrupt social network — and they will not rest until they hoover up every last fucking cent of #YourMoney:
The Church is the place where God says the tithe belongs. #YourMoney
