Many churches today are den of thieves, buying and selling (merchandising).
Merchandising in the church is so wrong that Jesus had to go physically to the temple to clean it
Mt 21:12-13: And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves. And said unto them, ‘It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves’.
Protestant Heresy Today: – Merchandising in the Church (Den of Thieves)
Many churches today are dens of thieves. They are stealing from brethren through buying and selling.
Nothing should ever be sold or bought in the house of God – not food, not tapes, not gospel literature, not Bibles, not services rendered to people, etc.
No auctions should be done in the church. The church is not a place to make or exchange money. The church is not a market place. The church should not make money off its people.
Services must not be sold in church. If they are not free, to be offered free to church, do not bring them in the church.
I saw a church allow an airways company sell its services inside the church. And this is not the only church which allows services to be sold to its members.
Many churches today are advertising bill-boards for companies. Evil generation indeed!
May churches today have started extra-curriculum activities selling services to members. They are selling special programs and conferences. Many even go to the extent of selling preachings and teachings.
Today churches are charging their duties and so is the so-called servants of God. It is the duty of the church to preach and teach its members yet today many are charging people for their preaching and teaching. It is churches duty to baptize yet many are charging, etc.
It is the duty of servants of God to pray for the sick yet many are charging prayers today. It’s servants of God duty to help people work out their life problems yet many are charging.
If a church is running business inside it, that is not its work – it is a lost church. A church has no Scriptural authority to start a business (anything where a fee is charged).
There is nothing wrong with writing and publishing good Christian books. Jesus told me that books are one way to preach His gospel. But the business of selling your books has no place inside the church – take the business out of the church.
Churches have no business selling TAPES or CD’s or DVD’s (video or audio) – give them freely.
If those anointed waters truly have Holy Spirit in them, why sell them to people? Why sell those handkerchiefs to people if truly they are anointed? Can the Holy Spirit be bought and sold?
No graven image or religious hardwares should be sold in the church.
The sad part is that people have accepted buying and selling in the church without them questioning if it is Biblical or not.
The church is a place of praising God, for prayer, for preaching and teaching God’s Word; in free people’s will receiving offerings sacrifices and tithes. Church is not a business place, a buying and selling place; a den of thieves.
If a church cannot support itself from what Jesus Christ gives it, from free will offerings, sacrifices and tithes and it must do business inside itself, that church must close its doors; it has nothing to do with Jesus Christ
What is your so-called church merchandising; what are they buying or selling? If Jesus enters that church today, will He not do as He did in the temple?
If there is merchandising, this means Jesus Christ is not in there because if He would be there, He would have chased out the thieves.
If He is there as you claim, show me miracles signs and wonders. For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.
Free you are given, free you are to give, free you are to receive. If it comes from heaven it is free otherwise not. See everything from Jesus Christ is free
If a church is charging its services, if a church is involved in business inside it – that is not a scriptural church; a Biblical heavenly ministry. You better run away.
Many churches today are dens of thieves. They are stealing and making money off you.
If Jesus can enter you church today, what can He do?
