What's Your Price, Preacher?

What's Your Price, Preacher?


Are you an under shepherd or a hireling? 

Shared by Apostle James R Winfree Sr,


The Bible lays out GOD'S definitions of both an overseer, pastor, elder, shepherd and a hireling just for Money.


John 10:11-13  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leave the sheep, and flee: and the wolf catch them, and scatter the sheep. The hireling flees, because he is a hireling, and care not for the sheep. 

1 Tim. 3:1-3   Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task. Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 


Titus 1:7-13  Since an overseer is entrusted with GOD'S work, he must be blameless, not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.


 For there are many rebellious people, mere talkers, and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision group. They must be silenced, because they are ruining whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach—and that for the sake of dishonest gain. Even one of their own prophets has said, "Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons." This testimony is true. Therefore, rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith. 


A hireling does not really care about being a watchman but is more concerned with protecting his reputation, position, and income.  A true minister will guard the flock against wolves from within (Acts 20:30) and without (Acts 20:29) no matter the cost to his reputation, position or income.

Following is a little quiz you can take to see if you are a true Biblical under shepherd as a leader in your church, are becoming a hireling, or are one now. More to come on this subject. Amen.
