Wayne and Brad continue their discussion about monetizing ministry and the ramifications it has on both the one charging for his version of the Gospel, and the content of what he seeks to sell. There's a reason Jesus calls his workers, 'gifts'. It's because they are to bless others, not exploit them for their own gain. Whenever someone's livelihood is attached to a message, things get distorted because of our very human inclination toward trusting ourselves instead of trusting in him. "Freely you have received, freely give," is how Jesus put it and it's the only way to ensure that the Gospel stays untainted by our desire for profit from it and that those who help others are not just hirelings doing it for the money. Each of these two have had their own journeys learning to trust God for resources and not just monetize a gift, that always does serious warpage to the gift!
