Should a pastor that spends most of his time preaching and teaching get paid for what God has him to do? I know what the scriptures says about this, but would you pastor for free?

This is thought provoking indeed, but wait a minute. What is a pastor? What is a salary? Where are we paid from or by. The Scripture clearly show that our reward is in Heaven. A pastor is a father according to the second book of Timothy and a sterward for the church which Christ went to the cross for. This meen that a church cannnot employ a pastor just as much a a family cannot employ a father to father it. The father after bringing inthe yield is apportioned what is appropriate to him by the mother so much that the father's focus in not on what he gets from home but what he brings home. Most pastors today are worried about what they get from the church instead of what they bring into the church. If we all could be fathers to our congregations, the gifts we will be getting from our children would be too much for us to think about getting paid but we will be all about Christ Jesus. Most ministries today are now financial institutions but the church has to maintain the DNA of our Father
Greetings:

Excellent point, the only problem with this is scriptures were written to satisfy the needs of time in which they were in. Also, scriptures were written for us to live by them today. Next, I'm going to say that we must include females in our talking about Pastors because there are a lot of us today as ministers, pastors and teachers. You quoted the book of Timothy but what about when the Bible spoke of females in the ministry. Some Pastors are employed by the church and depend totally upon the members of the congregation along with God to supply their needs, that why I say that some take preaching as a business venture.

SHERRY JACKSON MOVED TO A NEW PRISON AND IS NOW MISSING!


Sherry Peel Jackson has been moved again and she has not been heard from for over two weeks. She disappeared one week before Christmas and her parents nor her husband and two beautiful children have heard from her.


She is the ex-IRS agent in Aaron Russo's video America ~ Freedom to Fascism {{ that is her crime_ she told the truth and the commie liars punished her with a sympathtic judge and misinformed jurors to four years}}If you have not followed this story you need to

(http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1656880303867390173#) a must see film which every living man, woman and child must see. Aaron Russo gave his life to produce this documentary. Sherry, a CPA, Certified Fraud Investigator, received a 4-year sentence for telling Americans the truth, although she broke no law.

Please ask everyone to send her an encouraging note so that she knows she is not alone or forgotten. Let her know that this country is aware that she has been moved, thousands are still watching her situation closely and praying for her release. Anyone who has been in her situation cannot imagine how much good is accomplished by countless cards and letters. It does much more than just lift her spirits, which in itself is huge. It also lets the system know that she is well-known and many are watching closely to see that she is treated properly while in her federal cage, with two long years to go!

Here is her new address. Her loving husband believes she has been moved again since she has been missing for over two weeks and no one has heard a word from her. Diesel Therapy?


Sherry Peel Jackson


We believe this is her new location: SHERRY P JACKSON 59085-019 47-Black-F 08-08-2011 TALLAHASSEE FCI

Now start sending those cards and letters please!


Please take the time to see what this beautiful lady stands for and the sacrifice she, her children and her husband are paying for your family.

This must spread across the nation this week! Thank you...

Vote all Incumbents out in 2010 for freedom..well except for Cong. Ron Paul and Joe Wilson ( You Lie) He told it like it is...
I've been in this for some time and most people think it's all a hoax and the US could never do the things being said about it. I saw that documentary and have been talking about taxes for years. If they sent her up then they need to send those white men up that were on the documentary also. They keep her locked up so she can't tell the truths any more but she's not alone and all things in secret will come to light because the light exposes darkness and kills it. Thanks for this info.
you cant do anything for free nor should any reasonable person expect much for free.....the first curse from God to man was that you will have to labor by your hands...nobody can really do much for free...although me and my family have...done so ..but they call that sacrifice...and they call it that because you should get paid...I mean the power company gets paid regularly no one complains...preacher man gets paid...sin ...he must be sinning...which is lie from the pit of hell if the congregation is giving to the house...its only natural that the man of God is going to be fat with blessing...because of the obedience of the house ..to make sure that the storehouse has meat (malachi 3) malachi 2 curses the man or woman of God
who trespass and steal...only satan can cause this kind of confusion on such a simple question...sheez sounds like the first question recorded that he asked eve...made her think God did not want the best for her.. and that she could skip the process of God....
No the lie of Satan is your statement:

you cant do anything for free nor should any reasonable person expect much for free.....

Now this statement: the first curse from God to man was that you will have to labor by your hands...nobody can really do much for free

Do you really understand that God cursed the ground and not Adam and instead of a Garden that didn't need much tending to except maybe the picking to eat and taking care of it but the Garden had a mist that watered the ground and the ground had not been defiled. The labor intense to make things grow was because of the sin of listening to Satan by Eve and Adam listening to Eve. He took the Garden (physical) away.

This statement is also wrong:

I mean the power company gets paid regularly no one complains...preacher man gets paid...sin ...he must be sinning...which is lie from the pit of hell if the congregation is giving to the house...its only natural that the man of God is going to be fat with blessing...because of the obedience of the house

The power compaines as you call them are of the world and the world is not about God's business. The preacher is suppose to be about God's business. When one is pimping the congregation to get fat as in Malachi that is wrong period. No minister needs to have mansions, jets, yachts and five rolls royces. If you think they are being blessed by God then you are the one that has been deceived by Satan. They are not storing anything is the storehouse as you say but storing in their pockets.

Don't see things from the flesh point of view that most ministers preach but look from within of you spirit connected to God's Spirit. If you feel stealing from the congregation is being in obedience then I just don't know what to tell you because that is from Satan and not God.
Thanks John~~I did not want to play' with that Heehee~~~ However this will preach LOL~~~ John Writes"Do you really understand that God cursed the ground and not Adam and instead of a Garden that didn't need much tending to except maybe the picking to eat and taking care of it but the Garden had a mist that watered the ground and the ground had not been defiled.~

Ah so much for ORIGINAL SIN!!!!...and they were in the garden from the understanding of the Sages for about six hours...So ...............................................
Satan didn't waste time in getting his program rolling did he. LOL
I am one of those pastors who do not get paid for spreading the Gospel. In 2006 I founded Pray In Faith Ministry, let me rephrase that, God lead me to start Pray In Faith Ministry. This ministry started from the ground up. I started with 0 members and now I have fifteen members and growing every week. I work full time to help grow the ministry.

Working for the Lord is a privilege and not a job. Maybe one day I will get donations for my work for the Lord, but this is not a business.

If you have a pastor that is full time for the church, yes if the church can afford it, it should help the pastor with his living expenses, but not to make him rich.

Jesus sent the disciples out by two’s and told them to take nothing with them, and their needs will be met. Our job is to do the Lord work and saving souls, and God will supply the rest.

Where is our Faith that God will take care of what we need as we do His work?

"If you have a pastor that is full time for the church, yes if the church can afford it, it should help the pastor with his living expenses, but not to make him rich."

I can agree with and respect that. This is absolutely true.

"Jesus sent the disciples out by two’s and told them to take nothing with them, and their needs will be met. Our job is to do the Lord work and saving souls, and God will supply the rest."

Keep in mind, the "manna from Heaven" thing wasn't in effect, so the funding of their ministry came from somewhere and someone. GOD provided, but who did HE use to provide for it?
Mr Green writes:"Keep in mind, the "manna from Heaven" thing wasn't in effect, so the funding of their ministry came from somewhere and someone. GOD provided, but who did HE use to provide for it?"
"For the people of Israel, miracles are the way of nature, for the people of Israel are above nature." Rebbe Nachman of Breslev Don't be upset with the nations of the world because they don't understand us; they're not capable of understanding us.

My beloved teacher and spiritual guide Rabbi Shalom Arush says that if you haven't yet seen a miracle today, it's because you haven't said thank-you to Hashem today. So what are you waiting for?

Mr Green it is all about 'Community'The Sheitel, the Jewish community as one.
