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?

The bottom line is you get what you pay for. God aint cheap. This is from a 40yr vet in ministry
I think if the pastor started his ministry he should set up his business where he is taken care of. If a pastor is brought to an established church, he should make sure he is taken care of by the church and the board, but there should be strict guideline.

We will be talking about this on our Church Growth Conference and our Church Growth Group.

The conference is www.ChurchGrowthDVD.com
Praise the Lord EVERYBODY!!

It is my belief that a Pastor should be paid according to the flock that he or she pastors. If you are called to a church and this is your predominate source of income, you should be paid in allegiance with the income of the church. I am not certain that I feel pastors should necessarily negotiate a salary, however, ministers that are college educated spent their time in preparation to lead Gods people and therefore should be treated accordingly. I founded our ministry a little more than a year ago, and I work a full time job. I do not expect any salary from my church because we are still in our infancy stage, and to date I am the predominante financier. The Bible reminds us that if we are faithful over a few things, God will make us ruler over many. He also says that our gifts will make room for us, of that I am a witness. Doors continue to open, and God remains faithful, and that I believe is because we are faithtul. I believe the MEGA" church syndrome that we see in our neighborhoods and on television has led the world to believe that "ministry" is a mega money opportunity. I again state that as we are faithful, God shall supply all of our needs according to His riches in glory, and many of our wants! I also believe that there are many in the fraternity that God is not pleased with. Yes I believe that you should be compensated for a non stop work, but it also depends on the size of the church - organization. It grieves my spirit when I see pastors attempt to make their congregants feel bad at offering time. Yes tithe, yes give offering as the Bible instructs, but it also says give not grudginly or of neccessity, for God loves a cheerful giver. When we teach the priciples of God, all else will fall in place, but if we are pulpit pimps, that displeases God, as well as leaves a bad taste in the mouths of those whose lives lie in our hands.. I see the post where it states that Paul took nothing for his minsitry, but the Bible also tells us that the "church" took good care of Paul, and left him wanting for nothing. Parishoners, take care of your pastors, and Pastors, take care of your flock!!!
I personally think that a worker is worthy of his hire as the word of God says.This is indeed a hot topic.The Lord actually blessed our congregation with a highly anointed pastor that would not accept any salary from us . God moves in mysterious ways if we would just obey Him in faith. God placed on certain peoples heart to be a blessing to him and they would just bless him financially.The Lord makes provisions for His people.I really can't say if I would charge to preach God's word,it depends on what the Lord had to say about it.One other aspect to consider concerning this question would be are you in for the money? We must search our hearts to give an honest answer.
The church didn't invite anyone...God placed Satan there, THE churches doesn't even know.. read the word you'll see Rev Dan Amos Ezek Jer...

Why would God place Satan into what Jesus came to create? It makes no sense at all. It's like saying we suffer because God wants us to to learn something when in fact Jesus took care of everything on Calvary. We suffer because we are still a stiffneck people that trys to do everything ourselves and not believe God and the Blood Provisions of Jesus. We are the ones that allowed Satan in the church and keep Jesus outside knocking to get in. We always blame God for our shortcomings. It is because we don't walk in His Will and try to walk in our own will. Please show me scripture that says God has put Satan in His church. Thanks in advance.

Unteachable people who refuse the direction of the Master Creator and stick with the misconstruction of infiltrated Paganism,...will never learn anything from G-d .. Right John?

1Corinthians 2:12 - 14
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God: that we might know the things that are FREELY GIVEN to us of God.
Which things also we speak, not in the words which MAN'S WISDOM TEACHETH, but which THE HOLY GHOST TEACHETH; COMPARING SPIRITUAL THINGS WITH SPIRITUAL.
BUT the NATURAL MAN receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: FOR THEY ARE FOOLISHNESS UNTO HIM: neither can he know them, BECAUSE they are SPIRITUAL DISCERNED.

2Corinthians 2:14
For we are not as many, which corrupt/peddle by trickery the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as/from God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

2Thessalonians 2:10 - 12
And with all deceivableness/unrighteous deception of unrighteousness in/among them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a/the lie:
That they all might be damned/condemned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Very Tov ~~~~Now John: See if you can construct that with Just the Psalms ~~Considering that Melech Daveed was a man after YAH's own heart... and might just of said this way ahead of the Roman version...without the Greek interpolation.\

When we get our head out of the Rome version and the Idolatry of G-d within only one man When in reality HaShem 's essence is within all of us>>>>As Yeshua stated numerous times.

It amazes me how much "Salvation" one can Mesh with, in the Hebrew Bible...is that not so or did it Fail and Rome had to find a better anti-semitic version...

Just a few thoughts to shake and rattle the stauts quo.

If we would all study the basics we could all be sailing along pretty well..But Like Prayer, Study is a bad word for some folks and not worth the effort.


Obviously You are still wading through all that I sent you...
Friend, I am in confidence from the Ruach Ha Kodosh, that you, will be able, in His strength, to do the call set before you.
You, Being fully equipped, to be a doer" of His word, complete with power and good works following.... have much to be thankful for.

For every one who comes into the transforming power, as did Kepha/Peter, James/Ya’akov and John/Yochanan, do greater works for the Masters glorification.
As they did with only one purpose, to obey the Commandments and teachings
from your Rabbi Yahshua, spoken into you.
I would encourage you to Read your Bible cover to cover, three chapters every night in the old and in the new Brit until His word becomes seamless within you.


Yet I have faith in you that you will complete the course assigned to you, If not Pergatory is a place of learning in some circles.
Jesus didn't come to create the physical local churches..although he did establish them for a time...the church Jesus came to save is the spiritual church..the body of true believers all over the world..tis is the true church of God...made up of every true believer throughout the entire world...or as the bible puts it from the four corners of the world...this is the church of Christ not made with hands...the invisible church of believers...the scriptures clearly teach us that Satan has been set up in the congregations to be worshiped as God...God has allowed this...for Satans final judgment...and the finale judgment of all who would not become saved...that they would not obey the gospel to come out of the churches as commanded by God in Revelation 18;4...

some of these scriptures are posted in the opening of this post just read them...

the Preacher writes:"J-sus didn't come to create the physical local churches..although he did establish them for a time..."
SRY: Never established any such thing. ..as it is today it was then.

Nothing changes in Judaism...It was and always will be a House to house fellowship breaking bread on Shabbo's sharing the Torah of Moshie given from the Master creator in the Shetle,.. the Community from one to another.

The principle never dies.. because there is nothing new under the sun..

Someone should re-read Deverim/Deuteronomy 4:v1-4
