Freely Ye Have Received, Freely Give

Are we to use the Gospel to make a profit?
It has always bothered me when a Christian counselor charges the 'client' for listening, give hopefully Biblical advice and then prayer. "That'll be $50 and you'll be happy to know we now take Visa and Mastercard!"
And what about Roman Catholic Jesuit controlled Knight of Malta Rick Joyner and his MorningStar 'ministry' which charges a fee to simply watch his 3-ring circus on the internet - can this be right? Click here to see.

If the apostate church would simply read the Bible now and again, maybe they would see the error of their way.
Then again, maybe not.
In any case, read what the Lord Jesus Christ says:
"And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought; Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves."
"And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give."
