#1 – I am imperfect. I make mistakes and fall way short of who I should be each and every day.
That's ALWAYS the first go-to excuse--as if anyone IS perfect or has stated that someone IS perfect. Since Christ is the ONLY perfect One, perfection is not on the table for any consideration save striving to be like Him...but in doing so it is always with the world-wide, world-accepted, time-immemorial understanding that none IS or has been perfect (thus our NEED for striving to be like Christ).
Additionally Noble stated:
"In way more research than I have ever done I realized that statement was not correct. (The original Hebrew is “metzaveh”.) In no way was I deliberately trying to mislead or deceive anyone. I simply recalled a conversation I had (which I now see I did not fully understand), looked back at my notes and taught the message. I now realize I should have put way more time into doing research before making that statement. "
"This set my heart on fire and I put the message together, believing it was from the Lord, and we saw over 200 people come to Christ as a result."
