J.C. Ryle on False Pastors

JCRyleJ C Ryle on False Pastors.

John 10

The Good Shepherd and His Sheep.

Those who think that unsound ministers ought never to be exposed and held up to notice, and men ought never to be warned against them, would do well to study this passage. No class of character throughout our Lord’s ministry seems to call forth such severe denunciation as that of false pastors. The reason is obvious. Other men ruin themselves alone: false pastors ruin their flocks as well as themselves. To flatter all ordained men, and say they never should be called unsound and dangerous guides, is the surest way to injure the Church and offend Christ.

J.C. Ryle (1816-1900)

The Power of Money

by Paul Proctor

There’s nothing in the bible about Jesus or the apostles ever soliciting money from those they preached to. Despite the fact that it’s vulgar, offensive and counterproductive to the cause of Christ, televangelists and others like them have been doing just that and more for eons. You see, it takes a lot of money to keep a face on TV and I suppose many of them see that as somehow good for God.

But you know, even on that one occasion that money was needed to pay the temple tax, Jesus sent Peter to get it from the mouth of a fish rather than the pocket of a man. I never really understood that until recently. And as we watch the mass marketing of Christianity soar beyond the shameless and despicable, that story begins to make perfect sense.
