Default Are You Profitable to Your Pastor? - 07-26-2017, 03:58 PM

Here's a Darkie gentleman pastor who seems to have been instructed by our own Pastor Zeke personally:

And he’s written a book:






This is from the preface:
Quote:
Here are two questions for you to consider: If your Pastor only had church members who served as much as you do, would your local church stand or fall?

Are you an asset or a liability to your pastor and your church?
Bear in mind this verse from Malachi as you read on:

Mal:3:8: Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

Quote:
The purpose of this book is to inspire men and women to become profitable to their pastors. A strong local church can only be built when strong individuals rise up to support the man or woman God has called to lead that particular congregation.

Today many people feel that missionaries are on the frontlines in the Body of Christ. However, I believe the local churches are on the frontlines. The local church is the missionary’s lifeline. Without the church’s support, missionaries would have a tough time fulfilling what God has called them to do.

Strong local churches that preach Christ provide the foundation for reaching a community or town for the Kingdom of God. This is one reason why pastors need profitable people to serve with them in the ministry.

The truth is, in order for the pastor to fulfill the plans and purposes God has given to him, he must have people who are profitable to him for the ministry. The apostle Paul understood that fact. In Second Timothy 4:11, he wrote Timothy, “Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: FOR HE IS PROFITABLE TO ME FOR THE MINISTRY.”
One of the meanings of the word “profitable” is to be of service to. Why is it so important to be of service to the man of God? Because God’s desire is to have strong local churches that meet the needs of His people. However, if pastors don’t receive the necessary help from their congregations, they will be limited in what they can do for the Kingdom of God.

What about you? Are you of service to your pastor? I pray that through this book, you will be inspired and motivated to become profitable to your pastor as God intended for you to be.
So Jesus asks YOU this question: “Are you making money for your pastor or are you a miserable thieving parasite living of the blood of the rest of us?”

If you’re not making money for your Pastor, frankly, the Church and Jesus is better off without you. We can pick up any amount of panhandlers and freeloaders in the streets hereabouts without having to grow and nurture our own.

God does not open an infinite bank account for every Pastor (although He could if He wanted to). No – God inspires Pastors to inspire you to make money and give it to the Pastor who will then ensure that God’s Work is done and the words of
Lu:10:7: And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire

are validated.

It is all very simple:

God wants us to be rich.
God knows that together we will become rich
First we create more wealth together
Then we use that wealth to serve God
Then we all become rich.

As an encouragement, we will disfellowship everyone who has made Baby Jesus cry by tithing less than $10,000 a year. Also, so that their selfishness and greed do not affect the rest of you kind and generous souls, we will evict them from Landover (see Para.1298, (cxliv)(t) in the contract of residence.)

Read the book people – read the book! It’s all in there. I don’t want to have to give anyone the bad word – but I have a duty to God.





“We must reassert that the essence of Christianity is the love of obedience to God’s Laws and that how that complete obedience is used or implemented does not concern us.”
