When I get a revelation or learn something I love to share, so many times you are my audience. You do not have to read my post or agree that is what is wonderful about GLP, we know each others hearts and many I will not even open knowing I would not agree. Opinions appreciated but no abuse.



When I was in my 20s I considered Seminary that door always closed.
Since that time I have battled with this off and on, the world requires many things to share the Word of God in certain settings. We are in the land of Pharisee with high price tags. A call is just that a call God does this. In fact I have heard Seminary dampens the Spirit that went in.



Today I explored once again and when I got a sales man that spoke his script so fast I barely understood and when he gave me the cost, I became very sad.


I was always torn how so much money is made on something God gave us for free, to all. So today it came to me what Jesus did , he pulled people away from their livelihoods to teach them for free , Paul made his income from making tents. The communities and Jesus feed them and he said more than once have only what you need.

So this system we have set up has nothing to do with what Jesus did and taught. We see after Jesus rose , Peter went back to fishing. So I have a question for my GLP Choir.

Jesus told us how hard it is for a rich man to go to Heaven.

We have went terribly wrong and the call to share the word of God in the Scriptures was never a high paying job , unless someone shows me one I missed.

 Quoting: Goofy for God

You are somewhat mistaken. Jesus received lavish gifts, clothing and money and lived a exceeding luxurious lifestyle for a prophet/ teacher in those days.
Much better than that of the average working individual.
So it depends upon your definition of what a high paying job is!


However those Preacher's today who make and have multiple millions of dollars, have mansions, fleets of expensive luxury cars, etc, are of questionable spirituality.
Most ministers do not live that lavish of a life style and hold second jobs and their wives often work also, just to survive.
So if we are talking only of the celebrity preachers, I would tend to agree. If you are talking about all preachers and pastors, you are quite mistaken.
