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?

Speech is considered to be lashon hara if it says something negative about a person or party, is not previously known to the public, is not seriously intended to correct or improve a negative situation, and most importantly, is true. Statements that fit this description are considered to be lashon hara, regardless of the method of communication that is used, whether it is through face-to-face conversation, a written letter, telephone, or email.

According to the majority of Torah scholars, lashon hara is considered to be a most serious sin. Therefore, they proclaim, how much more serious is such a statement that is false.

THIS IS ALL TRUE. and i should be more compassionate as you suggest.

But then should I have been as Jonah to Ninevah in this situation? Or Jeremiah and wept, but tell it?

Obedience was the movtive.
iam bless to join your group thank you evangelist pastor susie houston
I have found that things are being distorted in the Church. The laborer is worthy of the hire, however, we do make mountains out of mole hills and if the people want to bless the men and women of God it shouldn't make us loose focus of the scriptures. We can bless the lay people as well. We can bless the homeless. The Bible says laying up for ourselves treasures is giving to the poor (paraphrasing). Of course there are a LOT of wrong doings going on in the Church. To make it brief. Let up that know what's right and what's wrong continue to hold our integrity and loyalty to biblical principles. I hate seeing Pastors getting rich and there members barely making ends meet yes that's my opinion and my opinion is not worth a hill of beans (smile). Wow!

There is only two things held with Merit outside a Torah education...They are first and foremost Tzedakah ( Pious-benevolent-charity) from one to another ( Not an institution) And Two~ Teshuvah /T'shuva which is simply RETURN /or repent,... and then go and study the Torah, for it the Torah is Life.
Torah is the Tree of Life / Eitz Chayim.
{ Note~ The teaching of Yeshua for this was the Prodigal Son of Israel and what did he do????...He saw that he was undone and Returned" YHVH the Fathers house.
The Multi-verse is the ABBA's house and within it are many dimensions~~See Yochannon 14:1ff ~Mansions=dimensions]
The entire theme of Torah is a incessant Baal Teshuvah movement ( Repentance movement)with a global focus on Prayer / Daven ~and gathering the Tribes back home...much preparation is going on.

It is time for Aliyah for those who are ready.

Hillel the Elder said, "Be of the disciples of Aaron, loving peace and pursuing peace, loving your fellow creatures and bringing them close to the Torah." (Pirkei Avot 1:12) -

How can we teach and preach faith and not walk in it. They tried (blessed their hearts) to bless me with a salary and I had to give it back to keep the church going. There are people who don't believe that tithe and offerings do work (smile). They will be faithful every Sunday and no matter the teaching they will hold on to what they fill they have worked hard for. Pastor a Church for free is a broad door. May I ask then who's paying the bills. Let me understand the big picture (smile). Hope this doesn't sound like debate just curious. Above all I need an understanding. Is there more to what you are asking. "Should a Pastor, Pastor a Church for free" "Should a pastor that spends most of his time preaching and teaching get paid for what God has him to do?" I belive a man or woman of God should give of themselves freely without having to say. I will preach and teach for X amount of money however, if there is a genuine monetarial blessing for them receive it. (Smile).

Baruch HaShem... Perhaps this may help

Also this may help a little --Lawrence Kellerman~~ Flaws of christianity~~

it will depend om the environment that you are . I preached at a maternity home here in Accra, Ghana. I don't receive any thing for it because it is my work , sometimes I preach on the street i don't expect any thing from any body . I have to give other pastors who preaches in my church money for any cost they might have incurred .
I had asked a question kinda of on the same path as this but didn't get many replies...didn't know this was already a discussion on the same subject...Would love for you to reply to this subject on my page, as to your insight and how you feel about it. Pastor White
I have given it a thought and I will like to make a little contribution. Let me start by saying I can Pastor for free but is it really free? The answer is no. Why? Because I will take my time to teach them about sowing, tithing, offerings, sacrifice and taking care of their Pastors.

As a matter of fact no man can actually pay a Pastor the amount he/she is due. Let me also add that Pastors are supposed to be the wealthiest. Do you know why? From God's Word.

And let me ask you a question, how will he/she meet up with the day to day responsibility? I believe and I am in support that Pastors should be paid and brethren should learn to bless and sow financially, materially, and etc into the lives of Pastors.
Once again...LOL the church was never commanded to tithe..
Well,... actually the Gentile church can cater to whoredom all they is when people realize that we are all one from the ONE.

That they come out of HER!~~~ the global world church of the Elite" AKA The Imperial Church of Rome: aka Christianity~~

When they finally connect to who they really are as the Son of Adonai..[EG Yakkov ben Adonai ] As that ultimate one..then accept the Shema of Israel.. what else there but a lifetime of study and Tzedakah:charity from one to another as the Master directs (Not to an institution).
My bible says a workman is worth his pay. If Jesus with the 12 had a treasure, hmm the income came from some where. The problem is most think money in paper instead of money in revenue. Wisdom is the principal thing, Vision being able to see what no one else can see, Resources, Relationships I could go on but as I seek and learn God will supply your need so it is never free the only thing free is salvation and it still came at a price. I guess this depends on ones mind set and what thus said the Lord. All questions can find answers in the bible.
