Noel Jones Wife
Noel Jones is not married although he was previously married for 22 years having married at the age of 20, but later got divorced.
During an interview with V-103 in 2014, Noel told his critics off by saying that Paul wasn’t married and was the greatest progenitors of the Word of God.
“Paul wasn’t married. He was probably one of the greatest progenitors of the Word of God. Many significant Bible characters were not married. Marriage is not a prerequisite for being in the pulpit.”
Jones also questioned whether remarrying after a divorce was biblical;
“If a man divorces his wife for any other reason that fornication and remarries, then whoever he marries commits adultery and whoever she marries commits adultery. Remarriage is really a great issue from a scriptural viewpoint. Divorce is cool. Jesus said you make yourself a eunuch for the Kingdom of God’s sake. I was married for 22 years and I’m one of those guys who’s divorced and is particularly afraid of being married again,” he continued. “Oh God, yes, I’m scared to death. “
Bishop Noel Jones and Loretta
Bishop Noel Jones has been in a long relationship with Loretta although they are not married this has brought him under criticism. During an interview Bishop Noel defended himself saying;
“We’ve been friends for a long time. It’s funny that man cannot be friends with a woman and not marry her as though she’s some kind of inanimate object who you just simply decide I’m marrying you and she has to fall in line. It seems to me that if she has her own mind and she decides not to, then that’s up to her. If she intimates that she wants to, when we started out not intending to, then now I have to make a decision. The Bible has nothing to do with it in that sense. Some of the greatest people in the Bible were never married. Paul was never married and he talked more about marriage than anybody there was. Of course, Jesus was too much for any one woman so he couldn’t get married.”
Noel also said during an interview that people assume that Loretta wants to get married but when they met they never intended to get married.
“When you marry young — I was 20 years old, 20, 21, something like that — and of course my ex-wife is older than I am and so she was probably more mature. I was forming and budding and becoming and we grew apart. So I wasn’t in any mood for marriage [when I met Loretta], and Loretta didn’t sign up in a relationship, in a friendship, with marriage in mind… I think people are assuming that this woman is an inanimate object, who has no real choice as to whether or not she wants to be with me or not. If she’s at the point where marriage is that critical to her and she knows my position, then it would seem to me that she would go find somebody to marry.”
