Spiritual Whore pt 1


 

It has amazed me to see the reaction to a Pastor warning the people of something. This is just evidence of the ignorance of the Word of God in the body of Christ today.

 

1 Cor. 4:15, For even if you had ten thousand others to teach you about Christ, you have only one spiritual father. For I became your father in Christ Jesus when I preached the Good News to you.

Those who possess the five fold ministry gifts are no longer seen as a father in the faith, but are seen as a spiritual whore that is hired to do a spiritual service!

 

Eph. 4:11, Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers.

 

The gifts given to the church have a specific calling and purpose by God, not man! The ministry is not a job! This is not my vocation! THIS IS A CALLING!

 

The very basis of the calling is seen with the heart of Paul. The people that he pastored, he loved! He called the people his crown! He wept, bled, and later died for his Christ, but also for the people that he loved and fathered in the faith.

 

In the majority of the church world today in America it is hiring a guy to preach on Sunday, wanting him to pray for me during the week, visit me in the hospital, marry my kids, and bury me when I die. THAT IS NOT THE WORD OF GOD! That is religion, but not the Word.

 

I remember we were hiring a new music minister, so I received a bunch of resumes. We were offering $40k for the position. A man came and tried out, and he was good. I said go pray and call me in a few days with your decision. A week went by so I called him. He said he was trying out at a different church because the salary was offered at $60k. I said, “If I offer you the position at $70K would you come”? He spoke up with a quick, yes! I told him, “Then I would never have you come because you can be bought, and I do not hire spiritual whores.” That seem to end the conversation quickly.

 

If you can be bought or sold in the ministry, then you are a whore, and you can not become a spiritual father of the faith.

 

The ministry is a calling, the calling to love, feed, build, protect, God’s people as His under shepherd, not a hireling.

 

I’ll TELL YOU MORE TOMORROW……

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. It breaks my heart that the body is being so mislead. I pray constantly that they wake up and see that there are many whom come in the name of God, but serve in the spirit of Mammon. Your warnings are well needed.
