Some Pastor Are Now Worse Than Unbelievers! READ ON!

While prayer moves many things in the spirit, and faith is the currency of the spirit realm, in the physical realm the currency of exchange is money: “A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.” (Ecclesiastes 10:19). 

While we pray that our pastor may be strengthened in spirit, we should not pray for groceries. I always say that, “we pray for souls but we don’t pray for groceries; we buy them.” While part-time ministers must make all efforts through work and business to make sure they are well fed, full time ministers need the church to take proper care of them.

Every genuine servant of God is concerned about his well-being and that of his family much in the same way as he or she is about the work of God. A man of God who cannot take good care of his family is worse than an unbeliever: “Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever” (1 Timothy 5:8). Do you want your beloved pastor to be worse than an unbeliever? I say so because a pastor who cannot take proper care of His family is worse than an unbeliever. 
Some Pastor Are Now Worse Than Unbelievers! 
The church should just silence full-time servants of God in the area of taking too much pulpit-time campaigning for their support systems by honouring them financially. The pulpit is meant for serving Heaven’s food not just for a weekly manipulation of the congregation for money. Preachers should stop this! The church, however, has to make sure the servants of God are properly honoured.

Every minister must have a fair salary compensation depending, primarily, on the size and ability of the church: “…for the labourer is worthy of his hire…” (Luke 10:7). Other determining facts may be their seniority in the ministry, administrative position held, years spent in the ministry (experience) and some consider the level of education too. It would be a misnomer for someone more senior, more educated and holding a higher position to get lesser than someone below them hierarchically.
Also depending on the ministry we may also need to look at critical issues like medical aids, life insurance, accident covers, life, retirement and death policies, educational funds, travelling, housing, entertainment and other allowances.
