    To charge or not to charge.....

    Well, reality check: The world do not function the same way now as it was during Jesus time, or maybe it was similar but now it is way more complicated. Everything involves money, of course, the service the preacher does (preaching / spreading the Gospel) alone should be done out of reverance for God and not due to the amount he is being paid. But i believe it is only fair, or rather practical that certain amount is collected for travel expenses, accomodation or other administrative arrangements. You see, in the midst of doing anything or going anywhere now, you have to go through some form of system where it involves certain monetary funding. And in the journey of it all, we dont just deal with believers alone but non believers too, so it's not like these preachers would be exempted just because they are traveling to preach the Gospel. So i see nothing wrong with love offering or collections, PROVIDED, the money is used for the good of the church or to do God's work. I believe where money is concerned, there should also be transparency on how the collected or raised money is used to avoid unnecessary accusations of financial scandals, as we already see happening in some churches. The LOVE of money is the root of all evils. Not money itself...if one is a good steward of it.

    Beware of the Catholic Church!

    Sadly, the sexual abuse n church scandals arent only happening in catholic churches, but even in prominent churches from protestant denominations e.g. evangelical churches, even if the cases are smaller in numbers compared to what we read here.
