The body of Christ in not a business

Do not profit with the church

Many corrupted leaders are using "The church" as a source of profit themselves, bringing upon themselves destruction from God. They see each member as a financial number and not as a spiritual personal that need spiritual growth. In modern age most leaders are looking to increase the number of member for a financial stand point and not for a expansion of the gospel. Under the corrupted idea that God wants us to be prosper and be rich, many have departed from the true gospel and now are slaves of money. I'm not saying with this that God wants us to be poor, that would contradict what the Scriptures says about it. God must be remain the number one in everything that we do but when we spend more than in the churches or ministries talking about money, that speak for itself. This is one of the most effected way for satan and his demons to distract the believers, so that they don't do no damage to his ruling on earth. We can find Christians leaders that are boasting about of how much money they possessed. In the meantime, thousand upon thousand are dying without Christ around the world each minute, while we count how much we are collecting in the offering. The Scriptures are absolute right when it comes to this topic;

"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." 1 Tim. 6:10

The problem is not the money but the people trusting more the money than God who provides the money. Money is a non-moral object, which mean, we are the ones that will give a moral use the money. When money replaced God in our hearts, what was supposed to be a blessing turns into a curse. If you google the list a Christians ministers that are rich because of their use of the gospel, you would be surprise. We you die, you will take nothing with you, all stay in this life. What the Scriptures says about it?

"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. 1 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time." 1 John 2:15-18

Many are spending so much time and money building a physical structural to worship God and had abandoned the most principal command that we have receive from God.

"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15

All those fancy buildings will be left behind after the rapture of the church along with all those that are corrupted by the corrupted system of this world. There is nothing wrong with having a place to worship God, the problem is when we are spending more time with the physical building than with the people that attending to the building. The physical structural without the Christian people that attend to that place, is just a physical structural and not more before the eyes of God. The church is not a building but The body of Christ.  compare with Rom. 12:4-5; 1 Cor. 12:12-31; Eph. 1:22; 2:19-22; 4:15-16; 5:29-30; Col. 1:18, 24; 2:19; 3:15.

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Mat. 6:24

 Who are using the church as a source of financial gain?

  1. People without God's calling
  2. People who are lazy and see the church as a easy way to make money
  3. Self-center and opportunist, which takes advantage of those who are in need
  4. Ungodly and corrupted
  5. People who are control by the vanity of this world

You named them, the list is quite long but these are the type of "ministers" that are leading the church.

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." James 4:4

How can I know if my leader is not corrupted?

God is the only one that can really show you if your leader is not corrupted. If your relationship and intimacy with the Lord is close, He will tell you but if you are caught up living a busy life and don't have time to pray and read the Scriptures, how can you expect God to reveal you the state of your spiritual leader? No wonder the church is the spiritual chaos that is today. The infiltration of all these corrupted ideas and concepts are the result of our lack of spiritual growth and the absence of God in our lives.

Characteristic of someone that has been corrupted:

"For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." 2 Tim. 3:1-5

We have Christian writers influencing many to become "lovers of their own selves, covetous (avaricious), proud (satan's original sin)". The spiritual influence through their books had corrupted many people. Instead of spending so much time in books that only brings confusion and fallacies, read God's word.

Observe  in verse 5 what you are supposed to do when encounter such people, "From such TURN AWAY', which mean "to deflect, change of direction and divert".

Samuel the prophet was raised by Eli the high priest, who was corrupted and lost but God preserved Samuel and called him directly. Eli was the high priest, which was a office that represented God but he was no longer performing in it. God brought judgement upon Eli's house because of his corruption.

"For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not. And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever." 1 Sam. 3:13-14

The same way many will be judge by God for using the church as source of personal gain. These corrupted people have made a deal with the darkness by accepting all these deceiving ways.

"For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." Gal. 6:8

If you are in a place where God is no longer the number one or God is not in control, leave that place. The lack of spiritual discernment had lead many into a place of spiritual darkness.

"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Cor. 3:17

Leading the church with corrupted methods  that the world use to enrich themselves. The Holy Spirit was sent by The Father to guide the church.

"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." John 14:26

"Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come." John 16:13

Only The Lord Jesus can rule His people!
