Preachers of LA Review-Bishop Noel Jones & His ‘Friend’ Loretta

By  |  6 Comments

Should we as women demand more from men? This week’s episode of Preachers of LA started off where last week’s episode ended. Instead of pushing the relationship controversy to the backburner, it was turned up a notch. However, Deitrick Haddon and Dominic weren’t the center of attention. It was Bishop Noel Jones and his “friend” Loretta.

Bishop Noel Jones is the senior pastor of City of Refuge Church in Gardena, California. Before POLA aired, he held influence of over 17,000 people on his church grounds. Now he is reaching the lives a millions with POLA.

According to Jones, his dedication has always been with his job. He was married for 22 years, but it failed due to him wanting to work more than take care of his home. After getting divorced, he embraced the single life full-heartedly and cannot see himself ever taking that journey again. Jones does have a woman by his side though and that is Loretta. They’ve been together for 16 years and own a restaurant together. However, their relationship is undefined.

“You have your life, I have my life, and we have a life together.”—Bishop Noel Jones

Just in case you didn’t know, undefined is when two people get together and do everything that a relationship requires. They go on dates, cook for each other, stroke each other’s egos, and sometimes even engage in sex. I hate to assume the Bishop and Loretta are getting their groove on, so we’ll stay away from that. However, these two are acting like a couple but avoiding putting a label on what they are doing. Then again it could be the Bishop.

During the last episode of POLA, Loretta sat down with Noel to talk about going to the first ladies tea party. Since they are not married, it is an odd situation for her to place herself in. His simple words were for her to only answer what she wants and tell the women to mind their business if they dig too far. She in turn shook her head and followed instructions.

Do you get the vibe that Loretta is happy just being a friend? Should she speak up and demand a relationship title? One thing I’ve learned is you can’t force a man to be your man if he is not ready. It’s also probably not wise to settle for just being friends if you know in your heart that you want more out of him.

    i am shocked that noel jones would deny that he has not had sex with Loretta . But on the other hand, I don’t think that he did. I think that she is more into him that he is to her. I see it in her eyes, but not his. it is something about her that don’t seem to be so religious as he is. she is looking for fame and fortune. why would you hang around a man that long, knowing that he has no intention of ever marrying you, or dating you? Get a life the Lord girl, and maybe you would stand a chance. I don’t want a man who talks to me the way he talks to her. she is a strange one for sure. stay the way you are Bishop. You know God to well to be fooled by the simplity of a wayward woman.

    I believe that he has been sexual with this pathetic femalebut realizes that she is not Pastorial material as to say representing Christ, repentence, step back and allowed the man to rush her other than make herself convenient; non-anointing spirit, can she pray or minister to others in the pulpit or on the streets, is not about the purpose(s) of the ministery, but an overly low-self-esteem female who is extremely desperect to catch this partiicular senior citizen and she has been trying beyond 16 years. She is obsessed, destructive and most likely have some dirty little secrets that perhaps, he does not want the public to know therefore, she is manipulative and black mailing the man in asking her to marry her in the presence of millions of people. I pity any female who would allow herself to be down graded over fame and $$$$$$. She is rather pathetic little creature. We all heard her say that she is “all that” “a 30″ therefore she make many females out here look more authentically and “a 50″. She is just another cutey, fornicator with

    a case of desperation and low self-esteem therefore allow him to rush you and girlfriend after one year means that he does not want to marry yolu but 20nyears. You mnaking us fenales especially the Afro Americans females seem desperate.

    The BIBLE says that a MAN chooseth his wife…NOT her hunting the man down like a gazelle or laying in wait like a sly fox for 16 years…my Grammy always said, “A man won’t ever buy the cow, when he’s getting the (dog sitter, swamp soup, shrimp and grits) milk for FREE!!!!! Kudos to Bishop Jones for not allowing himself to be rail roaded into a situation he’s cleary not mentally or emotionally prepared for.

    SHE IS NOT A WIFE BECAUSE SHE IS DRIVING THE CAR WITHOUT INSURANCE. IN OTHER WORDS….. VIRTUOUS WOMEN CAN SEE TIME BEING WASTED BEFORE IT LEADS TO HURT BOULEVARD. WHEN A WOMAN HANG ON TO A MAN LIKE A FISH HOOK, SHE LOSES VALUE IN HERSELF. THEN SHE GETS CAUGHT BY HURT, REJECTION, AND HUMILIATION. THEN, THE NEXT MAN SUFFERS. HOW SAD!
