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?

Researching False Teachers
From: Michael To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, January 09, 2016 1:29 AM Subject: I just came across a response you made. Hello, I read your response to why you think Todd White is false. I'm not emailing you to argue, I'm just wondering if you've seen him preach? I've listened to a message by him where he talked about repentance, and living holy as God is holy, and warning against being sensual lead by feelings and not God's word. He talks a lot about denying self, taking up the cross and following after Jesus. Obeying the command to walk in the manner that he walked. Loving people. Not being offended.Talks about being hated for his radical faith a lot too, which Jesus promised. While I assume you don't agree with the belief that we are to walk as Sons of God manifesting his love and power, and the signs and wonders that he (Todd) claims. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe you do believe we are to walk in power that produces genuine faith in others, as the passage for your page denotes 1 Corinthians 2: 1-5 (of course you stopped at verse 2 😉 the verses after would assume you do believe we are to walk in power). My push back on this response you gave very boldly on your site would be this. If you do believe Todd white is false, please do your homework and give a fair assessment why, according to your opinion/scripture, this is the case. You response to that believer who was honestly seeking out truth wasn't fair. You gave him a couple articles to read, scriptures that...
Knowing You Know Nothing Is the Start
From: Sean To: The Path of Truth Sent: Thursday, August 04, 2016 10:49 PM Subject: Confused... Hi Victor and Paul, Whatever I thought I knew, I now know wasn’t anything worth knowing.   The false teacher section was heartbreaking yet somehow satisfying/freeing. I’m astounded at the number of false teachers. Which leads me to my confusion…is there a good church who has a true teacher who doesn’t care about the local sports team and how many laughs he gets?  Is there a true teacher? What about Dan Mohler? I suppose the greatest teacher isn’t a man…its Jesus…its His word.  I need to read my bible. I apologize for the poor grammar…Im a little beside myself after just dipping my toes in to the content of your website.  Please continue as I will continue reading.  Thank you for all of the writing, investigating and time you’ve given to it.  I pray God keeps you well.

Greetings in the Lord Jesus Christ, Sean, Who is making precious truth known to you.  “I suppose the greatest teacher isn’t a man…its Jesus…its His word.  I need to read my bible.” Jesus, the Word of God made flesh, is where we begin: “Nor be called teachers, for One is your Teacher, even Christ” (Matthew 23:10 MKJV). And the preachers of the Gospel whom Jesus sends teach what He has recorded for us in the Bible, as in one example of many: Ac...
