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!
Yes you are right according to the sriptues a preacher should get paid.
Paul told them on the first day of the week.They should they finances to the church. So when he come they will not have aproblem taking care of. Him.

Can a church fire a Pastore sure. If they find that he is not upholding his position that have that right. Vacation yes. The body needs rest. After the disciples came back from witnessing Jesus said come and rest.
I posted some if not all of this earlier, Paul took nothing from anyone not only did he take care of himself but those who traveled with him.
(Act 20:31) Therefore watch and remember that for the time of three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.
(Act 20:32) And now, brothers, I commend you to God, and to the Word of His grace, which is able to build you up and to give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
(Act 20:33) I have coveted no man's silver or gold or apparel.
(Act 20:34) Yea, you yourselves know that these hands have ministered to my needs, and to those who were with me.

Hi. I wanted to comment on what you've written here. I agree with and applaud your pastors for what they've done, but I don't agree with the last line you wrote. It says, "Some pastor for money, or they want money, and they haven't even proven themselves." I'm not implying that I disagree with what the Bible says on pastors/leaders being worthy of their hire, but to say they haven't proven themselves can send the wrong message. People might think that what you really mean is, "Pastors deserve EXTRA money (more than what is necessary to survive off of) when they PREACH GOOD, if you know what I mean. My point here is that no one (as the bible says) is good, not one. And none of us (but especially pastors and leaders) should be treated as though we are superior to anyone to where we think we are entitled to be "blessed" (I'm talking money here) because of who WE are or what WE've done.
I feel that god give his angle an vision and all of god work is for free and thata men of god should realize that he his self can do some much he can hold an job he can preach for free maintain his family and god wll take care of him and not the people of the church to support his rent gas, home when you are a part of god he will take care of you its about patience and determination and godseeing can you do it all. can you. and from that point god will bless you in a way that no one can ever see invisable men of god. i only hope and pray that all the childrens will live pass 25 and that the world can see want is god message.
Shalom my brother,Galatians 6:6 Clearly says we should comunicate back to those who have comunicated to us the word of God" If a man of God has empted himself into you and and by virtue of what he downloaded into your life ,you have prospered,then it is noble that we support by giving to him...we are seeing many pastors and bishops today than the KEEPERS OF THE FLAME' in our growing churches. The flame will soon dwindle if there are no keepers in the house of God. Pastors should not be muzzled. They ought to eat from their pulpits! Bless you all.

Mrs Jackson writes:"A Proclamation of destruction...When this lady understands we are all One from the One. We are all One human species sent from the Merkubah = the Treasury of Souls of YHVH.
However she is right we are sent with Purpose, Not Arrogant babbling.
Personally,...My Answers have always gravitated toward the Torah and the Respected sages of Israel over the Eons of time.
Also I used the actual Sage understandings of Tithing and referenced it long ago that Tzedakah = Charitable giving is from One to another person of need in the community in which YHVH has established you to grow in and care for.Not to an Institutional demonation:
The Value of a tithe is from 3% and mostly used for Refuah Shelema = (Healing Prayers) as all Israel is One Unit.
We are all One, from the One! ~
Really too bad the Gentile nations are so confused about what is true and what is a Roman fabrication: Simply,... Rome Lied:
Nothing happens unless YHVH wills it. Time to come up out of the Quagmire of misconstructed lies and fabrications...that the RCC-Historical Archives state it is an embellished story at best. Go Figure that?
