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."
Luke 19:45,46

"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."
Matthew 10:7,8

Thanks for the comments.

For the most part, the organized church today is apostate and deceived. The LORD Jesus Christ warns us, LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU.

We need to read the Bible (King James/NOT New King James) and trust the LORD to teach us.

1 John 2:27 says, "But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him."
