Salary or No Salary in the Ministry of the Work for the Church?

The apostles in the Bible were never paid a salary, nor were the elders. If they needed funds, and had no savings left, or there were no gifts forthcoming, they ought to get a job like Paul did. They were the least extravagant people.

It is as simple as that. So when you hear about ministers getting a salary, you know this is not right. Turn from them. When you hear about popular evangelists who own a house in each major city that they can stay at when they come to that city to preach, or have their own jets, or they have their very own mega-church, know this is not of God.

These are the tares in the kingdom of heaven.
