Ahhh, so this is why some Catholic clergy takes a vow of poverty.

“I don’t believe I ever preached a message on money,” he said. “But I do believe … God can want you to have a better house. God wants you to be able to send your kids to college.”

I’ve come up with a new slogan for my herbal pills that will compete against viagra and cialis, “God wants you to have a bigger, longer lasting...”

I haven't the slightest problem with a clergyman making a "living wage"..being able to support a family in a reasonable fashion.But I do have a problem when they're driving Rolls Royces (or even BMWs) and are vacationing in the South Pacific.

There's something "un-God-ly" about that.

“Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., became a reverse tither...”

Of course, Warren is still the Antichrist, right folks? Tommy Dale, where are you?

This is not the whole story.

The pastor from Waco conveniently forgets to include living in the house provided for him by the congregation.

That’s worth quite a bit of $$.

However, pastors like Hinn, etc. that have a salary that large present a huge stumbling block to a lot of people, IMO. Jesus’s warning about the camel and the eye of the needle should be heeded by these folks. In addition they will be held to a higher standard than the rest of us.
