Just as Lucifer who started off right and ended up wrong, we see the same practice in many of the church leaders today. Many of them go into church leadership as a career, not a calling. And some of them that are called, end up wrong just as it was with Lucifer. Recall how Lucifer was once the “Anointed Cherub that Covereth,” and yet he fell from God’s grace. Many people today call us anointed. So if God’s anointed Cherub fell, so can we! They are getting filthy rich off of the gullible church members who keep stuffing their pockets with cash. The love of money is the root of all evil. Many preach for money, not souls. If they were in it to win souls, they would preach the truth; and take from their millions and assist the other suffering members in their churches. The practice of the true Christian church in the book of Acts was demonstrated when the Apostles didn’t stuff their pockets with money. They collected all offerings together and distributed to all other believers who were suffering and in need. But today, while many of their members are suffering financially, the preachers are living in mansions and driving expensive idol cars – with quoting the same ole rhymes like: give to us or sow a seed and God will bless you. In Romans 16:18, Paul said these types of people don’t serve Christ but their own bellies. The unrighteous mammon (which Jesus called it) or filthy lucre (which Paul called it) they preach for it, and money is more important to some of them than winning souls for the kingdom. God never intended Christian ministry end up this way. Finally, understand that there is nothing wrong with money in itself; money is not evil. But it is the LOVE OF MONEY that is the root of all types of evil.
– Blessings to all of you.
