Church as financial institution

Matthew 7:21-23
“Not everybody who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will get into the kingdom of heaven. Only those who do the will of my Father who is in heaven will enter.  On the Judgment Day, many people will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in your name and expel demons in your name and do lots of miracles in your name?’  Then I’ll tell them, ‘I’ve never known you. Get away from me, you people who do wrong.’

For some preachers and pastors, the “church” or the pulpit is a means to financial and career success, wealth, prestige and honor, power, influences and respect. These religious jokers are businessmen and women who are good at presenting a form of godliness while pretending to be under the apostolic calling of GOD. They were not chosen or sent by GOD. (Ezekiel 13) What happened is that their own ambitions sent them. They were trained, educated, indoctrinated, credentialed, solicited and/or applied for a position of pastor and hired by a religious institution to maintain that institution’s doctrinal/theological views and practices as its preacher/pastor. And as long as he/she behaves within the prescribed parameters of that institution’s belief system and traditions, they will be paid and honored.  But if they dare stray from the prescribed path and start teaching the Divinely Revealed TRUTH of GOD’S Eternal Commandments and the Testimony of Christ and His Apostles Regarding Holiness, Repentance, Baptism in the name of Christ with the evidence of the HOLY SPIRIT in Tongues and the observance of GOD’S Holy Seventh Day Sabbath as practiced by Christ and His Apostles, they are branded as a heretic and dismissed and ostracized as an outsider. (Matthew 5:19, 1 Timothy 6:3-4, and 2 John 1:9-10)

I should know. This is what happened to me.

I am just keeping it REAL!
