This is why it always amuses me when people suggest that I was in the ministry for the money. I ALWAYS made more money in the secular world than I did as pastor. If I had it to do all over again, I would have worked bi-vocationally, providing for my family and scratching my God-inspired itch to preach. We wouldn’t be facing some of the financial problems we now face if I had put my family first.
Bruce Gerencser, former pastor
Christian talk-talk-talk about ‘family values’ is a marketing lie; what is actually taught is that good, decent, godly people always put the pleasure of Our Invisible Friend first — which is a cult-like teaching that connives against healthy families.
