I don't think pastor's should get paid. I mean, Jesus didn't get paid!
Like this really famous pastor T.D Jakes charges 10,000 just to preach at your church! Donnie McClurkin charges 40,000 to preach at an event! And a lot of other pastors charges up to 150,000.

Don't get me wrong, pastor's write books and have products, yeah they can get paid for that, but they shouldn't charge to come to your church. Jesus didn't charge the guy he healed from leprosy so why would pastor's charge money?

Pastor's don't "charge". They get a salary to work full time for a specific Church. People who attend that church CHOOSE to either tithe or give whatever they feel they can each week. Tithing is giving a straight TEN percen of your income to the Church. If the Church is large enough, it makes enough money for his salary, and others' who work to run the Church. Pastor's don't just preach on Sunday mornings either. It is a full time job with lots of duties most people don't see. I bet I just shocked someone. Wink

True but also, big pastors like T.D Jakes was invited to come to my church but he told our pastor that the fee is 10,000! That ridiculous! Other big pastor's charge as much as 150,000 to come to your church. It's crazy

That's because they're bad people whose primary incentive for doing anything is greed.

Yes you're right. I thought you were talking about permanent Pastors of smaller Churches. And yes, greed is everywhere, it certainly doesn't exclude the religious sect.

well if they are prime inscinct is preach the gospel for the will of God, they wouldnt ask for such an amount, in fact nothing at all. imagine the people in (for ex) africa, they cant read, or that as they are poor and they can't get a preacher either as they ask for that amount. their just using the church for money.

I does think Pastors/priests / nuns / ect  should get enough money to pay for what they need and they should give what fees they get to help people and to put the central heating in the church and fix the roof ect. 

I does not think they should be driving around in the Porsches and going on the holidays to Los Vegas

^^ This is just me opinion smile ^^
