Money money money

The Bible says that the love of money is the root of all evil in 1 Timothy 6:10 and Hebrews 13:5. How true. Recently I heard how certain well known ministers and televangelists were accused of amassing wealth and living an luxurious lifestyle. It was dumbfounding to read about their number of mansions, luxury cars and private jets. 

These are our ministers, the very people who should be an example for others to follow and supposedly ministering the word of God. Jesus said that He came to serve and not to be served   Matthew 20:28. He also said that He have no place to rest His head Matthew 8:20.

So we expect such ministers to be ashamed of their actions right? No. They are crying foul. They accuse that the government is trying to interfere in their finances. Well, who is to blame for that now? It wouldn't have happened if you were a "Christ"ian in the first place. I do not believe they are true followers of Christ since He said that no man can serve two masters Matthew 6:24.

May God forgive you for dishonoring His name.
