Ministers/Priest be Paid?
are paid, to many
people, these positions are just a means to make a living; and
many aren't even believers. Many would not lift bins, but many
would like to play Minister/Priest for £1600 monthly. All
do is study the Gospel so you know it, study with the church of your
and on you drive as a filthy fornicator as far as possble fron the
Church of Jesus.
None of the Apostles were
paid; and clergy should not be paid but their wives should receive the
money, if they are married, and it should mainly be used for the wife and
the children. The husband would be clothed by the church. The husband should
surrender to Christ and do his work only. From the money the wife
receives the children must be able to receive a proper education, anything
more and the wife will have to work for extra cash.
If the Misister/Priest is
married, then the number of children should determine the amount of money
the wife receives. No way should these persons be paid £45,000
annually to look after a husband and wife! No such devout Christian
family needs that to live a simple Christian life. Therefore beware
when you encounter these persons striking/protesting for higher wages.
Before you support them, enquire how much they earn and how many children
If the Minister/Priest is
not married, as with anyone else, he/she indeed must be celibate, save he has way to demonstrate that by no means he commits adultery or fornication. And any of these must be watched with a close eye by the church and the people in
order to spot any violations. No way should Ministers/Priest
be paid; they should surrender their life to Christ, receive humble accommodation
from the church, preferably in/next to the church building, clothing and
food and very little pocket money, not allowing anything too worldly.
In this way there will be fewer 'corrupt persons' save the most determined
crooks, as this appeals only to the seriously devout, true Ministers of
Christ, and so it should be.
The Person of a Minister/Priest
should be as in the Gospel, a person humble to the law of God, though not
humble to the evils of men. In no way should these demand any respect
from men by designing respectable title such as ' Rev. Reverend'.
This title is unsound and should be avoided. The designation 'Dr.
' revers to a profession and is okay, but 'Reverend' was designed for Ministers
and is unsound. Ministers, by accepting the calling of Christ,
above all men acknowledge that they are 'Dust', and these by no means
should favour such a title as this title 'Demanding Respect'. Respect
comes if it does, and should not be demanded. See
