Should Pastors Be Paid Any Amount Of Money?

Apostle Paul practiced the act of receiving money as both a pastor and missionary. The generosity of churches supported him as much as he made tents as a way of income. Being a tentmaker, apostle Paul was not a burden to the church.

Apostle Paul defends his and Barnabas rights to receive payment for their work in churches. Apostle Paul uses 1 Corinthians 9:4-6 as a reference.

From the book of 1 Timothy 5:17-18, Apostle Paul clarifies that those in church leadership should be paid.

Paul gives instructions that church leaders should be respected and given money. Among the church leaders are pastors. As much as they are worthy of the money, apostle Paul warns church leaders that they should not love money. For those that will love money, they will bear a lot of grief in their life. Leaders with such characters are not fit to be church leaders.
