Just read over on NRO a phrase of Wm. Buckley, “We exist to make a point, not a profit.” I like that. Christians could borrow that and say, “We exist to to preach, not make a profit.”
But I keep hearing preachers talking about preaching jobs. It’s shameful. People who talk like that betray themselves. They’re not missionaries, but mercenaries. Preaching is not a job, it’s a service. And a service to God, not to paymasters.
