Gospel For SALE!!!

I was checking my dashboard and email this morning. Suddenly, an email caught my attention. It was the email sent to me by the Binny Hinn Ministries official cybersite. I know that such email of religious contents. Many of my friends who know me best are much aware that when it comes to religion and its affairs and or politics, I am much interested to deal with with full attention, time, etc. and treat them very vital and urgent. So, I scrolled it down immediately and in my surprise, I found it very controversial and disgusting. I say and feel that way because I’m not used that the words of God are offered in an auction. The Bible speaks of a free Gospel; the words of God are given free. (Matthew 23:6-8) saying,

6 “But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

7 “And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

8 “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.” (kjv)

2 Peter 2:3
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

I remember the account when Jesus Christ drove the hypocrites and the merchants out of the temple for they are selling the sacrifice offerings to be burnt in the altar. The people are now focusing on the material offerings (John 2:15-17)

15 “And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;”

16 “And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.”

17 “And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.” (kjv)

including the tithes or the ten percent of their crops while neglecting the bigger and heavier aspects of the commandments of God which are the judgment or the righteousness, mercy and faith and do much wickedness, hypocrisy and abominations to the Almighty instead… (Matthew 23:23)

23 “
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.” (kjv)

I remember the very instruction of Christ to seek first the righteousness and even the Kingdom of God and all the rest of the things whether spiritual or material will just follow (Matthew 6:33)

33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (kjv)

This is the scenario, Benny Hinn is selling his religious or the so-called his spiritual awakening books which is believe by him to build faith. It is very clear that this pastor is not of God but instead of the devil and i say straightforward. Why is said it? I

The answer is, “Because he is opposite to the will and principle of God and of Christ which is to give and offer the gospel or anything that is within the framework of religion FREE, and this is very clear in the verse i quoted above and I quote again (Matthew 10:6-8)

33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (kjv)

But there is another provision that the Bible has said that we can buy the truth, wisdom, instruction and understanding but never ever ever sell it. (Proverbs 23:23) says,

23 “Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.”

It is clear that after buying the truth, for example, you buy a Bible and read at home and when you have understood it and wrote a book or something and wanted to share it to other people, then if we are a true servant of God and a true christian, we must offer it and share such book or any other written matterials free to everybody. To prove these claims, St. paul give the nbest ensample though he is the the prime minister of the Church of God during his time, he toil and work for his own food and even charge it as his mistakes in the sighht of God T
