Let's open up a can today.
You watched the video, what do you think?
I agree that people in traditional ministry roles should be well compensated. I don't believe the student ministry/music/kids ministry director should have to work a part-time job to pay the rent. They already have an extremely stressful job that requires them to be "on" 24/7. We shouldn't compound the stress by paying them a "ministry salary" and trusting "the Lord will provide".
Maybe he wants to provide through a paycheque?
Back to the video. I realize it was produced to communicate a certain tone. Clips
Money isn't evil. But I think (at least from this trailer) these fellas are walking dangerously close to the line between pastor and idol.
No doubt they are all great guys, (in fact I think I'd probably be friends with the tattooed skater dude), just with some flawed theology... Like me.
Curious to get your thoughts: Pastors and their big houses/fancy cars/flashy bling.
