Did Paul Ask for Handouts, Donations?

Subject: Asking For Money

Hello,

Today, I stumbled upon your website, on the page in which you claim the illegitimacy of Todd White.  I’m not here to argue that, but rather inquire why him asking for money is wrong.  The scripture that I am hung up on comes from 1 Corinthians. Paul says he has the freedom to ask for pay, but he decided not to. He claims a worker has the right to be paid for his efforts. However, he exchanges his physical payment for spiritual payment from God. Can you shed light on this scripture for me?

Thank you for all consideration,

Tyler

Tyler, the Scriptures you’re referring to are:

1 Corinthians 9:7-14 MKJV

(7)  Who serves as a soldier at his own wages at any time? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Or who feeds a flock and does not partake of the milk of the flock?
(8)  Do I say these things according to man? Or does not the Law say the same also?
(9)  For it is written in the Law of Moses, “You shall not muzzle an ox threshing grain.” Does God take care for oxen?
(10)  Or does He say it altogether for our sakes? It was written for us, so that he who plows should plow in hope, and so that he who threshes in hope should be partaker of his hope.
(11)  If we have sown to you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?
(12)  If others have a share of this authority over you, rather should not we? But we have not used this authority, but we endured all things lest we should hinder the Gospel of Christ.
(13)  Do you not know that those who minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? And those attending the altar are partakers with the altar.
(14)  Even so, the Lord ordained those announcing the Gospel to live from the Gospel.

Paul was speaking of ministers of God receiving offerings from those to whom they were ministering in the Lord. Putting up a public website with some videos of manmade doctrines and passing around the hat to visitors isn’t the same thing at all. The apostles of the Lord would never set up a 501(c)3 non-profit ministry and advertise “tax-free” donations to the general public. Can you see this? 

Read Counterfeit Christianity and The True Marks of a Cult, and don’t stop there. Keep reading on our site and let me know if this has answered your question. We also have a section, Tithes & Offerings – Are They for Today?

So Nicola, it’s okay for you to publicize demonic trash (albeit as a sick “joke,” as you say) with your toddler in it, but cry in protest at his involvement if we publicly confront you for doing so? How does that work? Are you upset with people seeing what WE’VE said, or about people seeing what YOU’VE said, or, with what your “friends” have said? Perhaps you simply don’t want any of your associates to know you profess Christ, and to hear what He has to say about your profession? Might that be it?

From: Harald To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, April 13, 2016 3:56 PM Subject: Joseph Prince You are wrong about Joseph Prince. You should focus on preachers that preach condemnation. Is JP perfect? No, but I have witnessed in my spirit his genuine love for Jesus. Money is not the evil, it is the love of money. Wealth can be from God and be used by the church to further the gospel and honor Him.  Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, David, Solomon were wealthy and loved God. What about Job? God loves his children and wants to bless them. Besides this any blessing and provision is held with open hands because it is all the Lord's. I have much joy in my heart with a genuine increase in Love from my Savior Jesus Christ. I have heard many sermons of Joseph's and I truly believe that he is filled and led by the spirit of God! Paul had much opposition and from who? The religious and self righteous who cannot accept the love of God. They believe their works will restore their relationship with God. Only the free gift of righteousness by faith as with Abraham will restore our right relationship with our beautiful Savior. To Him be the honor and glory forever, Amen!! We love because He first loved us. I will pray that your hatred turn to love. Lord Bless you both!

From: Jared To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, April 06, 2016 3:37 PM Subject: Questions  Hey y'all, I stumbled upon yalls page by searching for a certain minister. After reading what you think of him and his ministry, and browsing through your website a bit, I have to say I'm confused.  Let me ask y'all some questions in hopes to get a response: 1st- What is your stance on spiritual gifting? 2nd-Would you call yourself religious scholars? If so why? 3rd- What is the cross and why do you hit the Gospel of the Cross so much instead the Gospel of Jesus? 4th- Why do you choose intellect and religion over relationship? 5th- Why do you preach against the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit the God head 3 in 1? 6th- Where do you get your doctrine from? 7th-Why do you twist words of others and use scripture out of context to prove a point? 8th- Why respond to things in hate (meaning sarcasm and mockery) and judgement? Thanks Guys and I hope to hear from y'all soon. May God Smile upon you today. Bless you.  Jared From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Jared Sent: Saturday, April 23, 2016 7:13 AM Subject: Re: Questions Jared, you not only stumbled upon our page, but are stumbling over it, just as prophesied of you: “Therefore to you who believe is the honor.
