I have known personally one - and only one - other person who tried to teach that Pastors should not be paid.

He twisted Scripture to make it say what he wanted it to.
He was also classified as TPI (Totally Permanently incapacitated) due to back problems. This classification means that he is totally unable to work at an earning job, and was therefore on a full disability pension.

At the time he was self building a 4x4 camper bus, doing all the welding and fabricating of components himself.
But not able to work a job.....

This is the only man I have personally met who tried to teach that pastors should not be paid.

Well looky here brother, now you know of two. No mystery that they are the same type of fella. I have known others over the years, all the same. Will receive all day long but make up any excuse not to give.

You said that it was obvious that you don't twist Scripture....if it were so obvious, then we would all be thanking you for the clarity of your teaching, and agreeing with it.  We don't agree with it, and we have explained why on many occasions.  So then OBVIOUSLY you are NOT clear on your teaching, and it appears from our view that you ARE twisting Scripture, relying upon commentaries and other people to interpret it for you, instead of simply believing the plain sense of the passages in question.  It is called "private interpretation" - you came to these texts with pre-conceived ideas, and read those ideas into the passages.

 

Anyway, I am finished corresponding with you - it is not edifying for anyone.  It is obvious that you have an axe to grind over this whole money thing.  It is quite nauseating after awhile seeing the lengths that you will go to prove your point - even to the ridiculous extremes.

 

Adios, 

 

In Christ,

You can't "prove" an evolutionist wrong either...but it doesn't mean he's not wrong.....just saying. "In a multitude of counselors there is safety". When you have a bunch of good, solid people that as a group are agreeing on the interpretation of a portion of Scripture, I think it's wise to at least acknowledge that there may be something there to be learned.

What would Paul's purpose be of setting an example by working to support himself if he did not mean pastors were not to work a job outside of Church? 

Paul clearly said he worked as an example and said that Elders ought to work also.  If being an Elder were considered work that Paul meant when he said "so labouring",  Paul would not have had to tell them to work. 

But he did.  And he gave the reason.  Pastors should be givers more than receivers.  And notice in Acts that the Church is supposed to have more than one pastor... Elders... plural.  One single pastor in a Church is also unScriptural.  But I bet that one is ignored as well.

I thought you said Paul was an evangelist not a pastor? If you will differentiate pastors with him based on that premise then neither should you use his example as that which a pastor should follow.
You can't have it both ways.
How about some consistency?

When you can prove me wrong, feel free to. Thus far, you have not.

 

Could be wrong and if so I apologize but since I've been here SFIC, nobody has been able to prove you wrong on anything.  You seem to have a special insight, an ability to see things differently than most of us, even when discussing the very same verses from the same King James.

 

Might that be pride?  I say this as a former narcissist.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
