Megachurch Pastor Perry Noble is being accused of dropping the N-word during a sermon on Christmas Eve.
Pastor Noble was preaching at one of the NewSpring Church locations in South Carolina about his wife not allowing him and his daughter to buy a dog when he may or may not have dropped the N-word, noted TheGrio.com (video below).
In response to the controversy, the NewSpring Church issued a statement to PajamaPages.com:
We do stand by the message Perry gave to our church on December 24, 2014, and we do believe the Lord prompted Perry to deliver it as he did.
In regards to your question about the ‘N’ word, Perry doesn’t use that word and doesn’t address anyone in his life by such a word. He did not use that word in his message and what you perceived as him doing so was [a] matter of words getting jumbled as can happen with anyone who is speaking.
Another controversial part of the sermon was when Pastor Noble said that the Hebrew language has no word for "command," noted FightingForTheFaith.com.
