All of us....

I just would like share this to you…. I do believe that our God who is so gracious to us has given us a sound judgement about the things around us.
Will we just ponder upon this article.

"Kathryn Kuhlman, a famous minister who shared the Lord’s love and power to an estimated 100,000,000 people during her 50-year ministry, died February 20, 1976 with an estate worth $2,267,500, which is equivalent to $6,000,000 in 2006. The money was not left to her ministry but to her friends. “All over the nation front-page newspaper stories read: Kathryn Kuhlman, the evangelist, who solicited millions of dollars in contributions from her followers, has left none of her estate to her foundation or the church.” Kathryn Kuhlman is an example of a multi-Millionaire Minister who received her wealth from solicited contributions from the Body of the Christ. We must ask ourselves, “Does Christ will His servants (ministers) to become millionaires by receiving and keeping the flock’s contributions; would the Apostle Paul or the Prophet Elijah be millionaires because of their followers?” I do not believe so, according to the Word of Yahweh! Christian men and women can begin a ministry with a heart to serve Yahweh but end up being corrupted by the money they receive as were Solomon and Judas, who were both called servants. I believe the responsibility for this corruption lies, in part, at the feet of the people who give the money. These loving individual’s error lies in the fact that they do not impose any accountability on the ministers or charities to whom they give their money. This lack of accountability can result in the ministers being tempted into sin. Paul warned Timothy, “But, they who are determined to be rich, fall into temptation, and a snare, and many foolish and hurtful covetings, the which, sink men into ruin and destruction,–– For, a root of all the vices, is the love of money, which, some, being eager for, have been seduced from the faith, and have pierced, themselves, about with many pangs” (I Tim. 6:9-10). This article will not be discussing wolves among the flocks, which is another story, but it will be discussing good people, children of Yahweh, who may have been seduced into sin by an abundance of money being laid at their feet."

Thanks to the source....
