    Didn't watch the video, but the topic reminded me of this.

    What?! Get out.

    I saw that a man of God recently bought Tyler Perry's former humble abode...since God told him to...quite literally.

    He needed $30,000 in belts and shoes in two years because the expensive ones last longer.

    Don't tell my $10 Walmart belt that I wear everyday to work for the past 3 years it might go and break.

    I've had the same $20 belt from old navy for over 15 years (bought in HS). I bounce between the shortest 2 holes. The belt just keeps stretching with my gut! :rotfl:

    I heard of a felony criminal prosecution involving a "church" whose leaders were scamming people and pressuring them to sign over their assets to the church-- like ALL their assets.
    The husband and wife "pastors" of this so-called church used the money for vacations to Europe and Africa, cruises around the world, buying million-dollar mansions in the suburbs while putting up the now-homeless members of their congregation (the people who recently signed-over all their property and bank accounts to the "church)" in flea-bag motels and trailer parks
    The name of the church was "Abundant Life" or "Abundant Living" or something like that.

    Yeah, it certainly was, for a while, for Pastor Fraud and Mrs. Fraud.

    For small churches, I don't really even see a good justification for a pastor to take a salary. Have a real job, write your sermon in free time and preach in free time. Visit members and do funerals in free time.

    If you've been to seminary I understand wanting to get reimbursed for that cost, but being a pastor is like working minimum wage, it was never supposed to make you rich.

    Blessed are the poor for yours is the Kingdom of God

    Not rich, but I see no reason why a minister should not be supported. Even Paul was supported in the first century.

    “I robbed other churches, taking wages of them that I might minister unto you; and when I was present with you and was in want, I was not a burden on any man; for the brethren, when they came from Macedonia, supplied the measure of my want†(2 Cor. 11:8-9)

    At a big church I don't either, but it quickly becomes a slippery slope for some of these guys, and I believe it can easily turn sinful.

    Maybe, but a little judgement now is what's needed.

    I understand that point of view, but the nature of evil is to be evil. God will allow it to fill up its cup of wrath to the brim before He extinguishes it.
