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?

John writes:"Yall just don't get it!!!~~~"
What was that saying?~~~ "A man convinced against his will,...is of the same opinion still".... Reminds me of the story where three Rabbis are talking, two get into a heavy debate and finally the friend watching, states boldly to his friends Your right and then to the other and Your right too...


They retort~~ Hold it we cant both be right... and so it is...
Your Right !!! we are all Right!!! each in his own eyes it seems some with wisdom and some with theology and ..????~

Yeah but anyone can have theology because that is not from God just as religion is not from God. I'll take what God says all day long and believe Him. LOL!
Amen, brother, religion is not only not from God but is is not OF God!
"...religion is not only not from God but is is not OF God!..."

Hahahah!...Is this the fashionable 'phrase du jour' ?
Where are you getting such ideas - that having a 'religion' is bad?
There is NO SCRIPTURE for what you just espoused.
We really need to pay attention to these modern teachings cropping up because they are not biblical...

This is what the bible says about the nasty word 'RELIGION':

James 1:26
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's RELIGION is vain.
James 1:27
Pure RELIGION and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

So evidently - it depends on what your RELGION is and how you practice it.
Go back to God's mission statement - the book of Genesis. Where was the church? Where was religion? There was only RELATIONSHIP! Religion is man-made. And what James meant by RELIGION is not the contemporary definition...I'm away from my Greek dictionary now, but I will dig that out for you!

Be Blessed
Take a good look at the word RELIGION there is a word within this word....now look at the word legion now we all know what the word legion means according to the word of God (demon) Mark 5:- 7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.
8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many...now lets look at the word demonination there is a word within that word.....demon--nation...that is why some people say i am a non-denomination in other word a non-demon--naton a people not of the religion worship in other word legion worship.
Well said...

Beth Sue, that is so kookie.

Do you really want people to believe that the word 'legion' has something to do with the word 'religion' ?
You are going to build a whole teaching around those two words which have nothing to do with each other - to use as your argument against the word 'religion'?

Well then - lets both play that game:
Religion...lets look at another word within the that word ---> 'leg' -
it means you are using your leg to run away from the fact that the holy apostle James said that true religion was taking care of orphans and widows.
Lets do another another, shall we?
Religion...lets look at the word 'on' at the very end 'religion' - it means the opposite of 'off' as in lets not go off on teachings that are untrue...as in the teaching that says that 'religion' is not of God.
A preacher or pastor should freely preach the Word! He is not to be brought under the power of money! I assure you many preachers will have to answer to God. The holy Ghost and being in the will of God should be their main purpose. I am totally against salary preachers! Because if you have someone that pays you to preach your under their POWER. WHETHER THEY KNOW IT OR NOT. A preacher cannot have total liberty to preach what God gives them. God is faithful to His Word and will provide ALL his necessary NEEDS. Tithing is biblical. God Will take care of His People!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT! God Bless!
I SHALL HOPE THE ONE'S WITH WISDOM IS GIVING THE WISDOM OF UNDERSTANDING FROM GOD....AND WELL WE KNOW THE ONE'S WITH THEOLOGY IS THE ONE OF MEN LOL NO QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT LOL SO THE ONE'S WITH THEOLOGY IS THE DOCTRINE OF MEN AND THE ONE'S WITH WISDOM IF IT IS THE WISDOM OF GOD IS THE ONE WITH THE WORD OF TRUTH...HOWEVER IF HIS WISDOM DO NOT COME WITH SUPPORTING CHAPTERS THEN IT IS OF HIS OWN WILL AND NOT GOD'S....WE ARE TOLD IN THE WORD TO LEAN NOT TO OUR OWN UNDERSTAND BUT THE WORD OF GOD...
now if we can not come to an agreement according to the word of God ....how can we be leaders in the body of christ...should we move on because some want to lean toward their own understanding in other words men doctrine leaving the doctrine of the gospel of God... 2 Corinthians 6: 14-18 tell us to be not unequally yoke with unbelievers now could a person that says they are saved become an unbeliever? why yes ...Gods word be true and every mens word a lie...now if anyone could give supporting chapters on their believes in the bible that say a preaher should be paid than give it or keep a close mouth until you read it for yourself ....some may give chapter concerning the church and titling however that is concerning the house of God and the poor ....well should we be unequally yoke in this mattere .....i would think not ...now ask yourself on the day of pentecost where they unequally yoke i think not the was all on one accord...now how can we touch and agree if we so disagree becoming unqually yoke ....the word of God do not go againist it self the devil is a lie....we need to stand on what the word of God is saying in this matter and i am sure we all can agree and be not unequally yoke ....we should not lean to our own understanding ok that is where the problem is.
