    We know that the clergy is behind the crucifixion our Lord Jesus. At present the history is repeating. But ye are chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, and a peculiar people : that ye should shew for the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. Which in the past were not a people, but are now people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 9:10.We the people of Jesus are compelled by his love to preach everybody about Him and his love. The only mediator is him. We can directly speek to Him with his holy spirit abides with us. Church is the communion of his belivers. We worship him by keeping His commadmends in our daily life. We are the temple of our Lord Jesus. Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 1Corinthians 7:19.

    In 1 Corinthians chapter 9 (verses 1-12) the Apostle Paul talks about his Rights as an Apostle of Christ. You have a good point about wealth in the Church. However, the Gospel of Christ is not to be peddled for economic profit. A man (and woman) reaps what they sow.

    In regards to wealthy ministers, preachers, churches, etc., my heart tells me that as long as there is hungar/starvation, malnutrition, unclean water, no shelter, bad education, or anything causing sickness and death inflicted upon anyone on this earth, they shouldn't have anything extra to buy such lavish and unnecessary things. It doesn't sound like something our Creator would be okay with especially after telling us that the love of money is the root of all evil. I don't believe He likes money at all. He gives us all that we needed to begin with. We are suppose to help our brothers and sisters who have need when we are blessed with more.
