John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

We should not judge, but should we remain blind and support these millionaires?

When a pastor is called to serve in our denomination they are provided a living wage so that they may focus on shepherding the church and not have to worry about providing for their family.  I don't know specifically how much our current pastor earns in a year, but I would imagine it would be around $70-80k.  There could be some need to warrant an increase, but that seems to be an adequate compensation so that he will be able to provide for his family and put a roof over their heads.

 

So, it is certainly acceptable to provide a wage to a pastor of a church, should they have no other income.  Now when it comes to the people you have highlighted in the OP, if they are earning additional income from book deals and other external sources than from their congregation then I would say it would be incumbent upon the leadership of that church to keep an eye on this, as if an individual is basically independently wealthy, then the church should not have to provide any additional compensation.  And, quite honestly, they should be constantly aware of what is being taught, as many, if not all, of the people shown above support, or have preached, on the prosperity gospel, which is highly destructive and apostate.

Jesus, was not a rich man financially. Neither were the prophets, pastors, disciples, bishops, elders, apostles, deacons. They had learned, that it was much better to give than to receive. Their store house is in heaven. Not here on Earth. Should they become poor for Christ sake? No, they should be living a normal life, like you and I. They are worthy of earning a good salary. But not enough to spoil them, like many are doing today. He deserves it? So did Christ.😇

Here's a prime example of Joel Scott Osteen (born March 5, 1963) is an American pastor, televangelist, and author, based .... Osteen's 2017 net worth has been reported to be between $40–60 million. He lives with his family in a 17,000 square-foot mansion in River Oaks ..What's wrong with this picture!!!!!!
