Neither the Catholics nor the Protestants should have leaders who receive salaries.

It has only become a profession over the last 100 years or so.

Paul: "What is my reward then? That when I preach the gospel, I may present the gospel of Christ WITHOUT CHARGE, that I may not abuse my authority in the gospel."(Cor 9:18)

(Paul was a tent maker......and made tents during his missionary journeys......so as not to be a financial burden on others.)


"But we COMMAND YOU, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which he received from us.

"For you yourselves know how you ought to follow us, for we were not disorderly among you;

"NOR DID WE EAT ANYONE'S BREAD FREE OF CHARGE, but worked with labor and toil night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you,

"not because we do not have authority, but to make ourselves an example of how you should follow us.

"For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.
(2 Thess 3: 4-10)
