Why You Should Pay Salary to Your Pastor

“You owe your pastor salary! A responsible believer knows God pays his pastor through him or her. ”For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.“ 1 Timothy 5:18 KJV That’s simple Bible!” he said in part.

Backing up his points with more Bible verses, he continued;

“Jesus was financed by women He ministered to.

Luke 8:3 KJV
And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.

These are apart from expensive gifts like the alabaster box of oil, gold, myrrh etc at His birth, about 100 pounds of aloes etc by Nicodemus, the list goes on.

The apostles were sustained by people they ministered to

Matthew 10:10 KJV
Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

The workman is worthy of his meat, meat there is sustenance or salary.

Luke 10:7 KJV
And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

The labourer is worthy of his hire!
