    IS it WICKEDNESS and a SIN to be taking MUSIC given to YOU by the HOLY GHOST and making CD'S then MAKING MERCHANDISE and MARKETING them and SELLING them for MONEY, and then COPYRIGHTING them and collecting MONEY from ROYALTIES from whomever uses them to bless the LORD?

    YES or NO?


    Is it WICKEDNESS and a SIN to TAKE WHAT THE HOLY GHOST HAS TAUGHT YOU AND WRITE BOOKS AND MAKE CD'S AND then MAKING MERCHANDISE and MARKETING THEM AND SELLING THEM FOR MONEY.

    YES or NO?


    Is it WICKEDNESS and SIN for anyone to make the MINISTRY of the CHURCH a CORPORATION?

    YES or NO?


    IS THIS A GREAT WICKEDNESS AND SIN AGAINST GOD?

    Taking his MUSIC and the LYRICS to his MUSIC and making CD'S and SELLING it for MONEY. Then COPYRIGHTING it and charging everyone MONEY to use it.

    Taking KNOWLEDGE that you got from God that is to be given freely to the SAINTS but writing BOOKS and making CD'S and selling them for MONEY.

    Taking his MINISTRY and Making it into a CORPORATION.

    HOW DO YOU THINK GOD FEELS ABOUT ALL THIS?

    Is it a wickedness or a sin to take the gift God has given you to earn a living? How about if you are gifted with numbers and become an accountant? Is that a sin? Or my husband who was greatly gifted as a trouble shooter in programming? Is it a sin that he not only made money but a good amount of it in business before he became a pastor? Or for that matter, now that God called him to become a pastor, is it a sin that he quit his job making a great amount of money to earn significantly less - but still pulling a paycheck - doing what God called him to do?

    No, it is not. As annsni said, God gives us all talents and sometimes we use these to make a living. If God gives someone the ability to write music, there's nothing wrong with making a living off of that. Is it a sin for a person speaking words given to him by he Holy Spirit be paid to tell people those words on Sunday? I Tim 5:18 says No

    Making CD's and writing books costs money. Where do you think this money would come from to make the CD's and books? A corporation many times is just for tax purposes.

    Is it sin to patronize a religious website that (I assume, since it sells advertising) is for-profit by posting in its forums?

    Olasonn, you need to think your position through before condemning others.

    Or giving a man his wages for the work he does. That is Scriptural.

    The op is baseless. It is a claim without support. It provides no substantiation at all by scripture or any other means. The onus is on the author of the op to provide support for the claims made. Otherwise is is just trollish behavior.

    My suspicion at this point is the author of the op has heard such things spoken of, but does not believe them. This is a troll that only wants to stir up problems and have fun being childish.

    Give me your opinion on this.

    Any ministry like HILLSONG CHURCH that says their music and lyrics come from the Holy Ghost not only sell it but copyright it and charge a fee for others to use it to bless the name of the Lord?

    Is this not WICKEDNESS AND EVIL BEFORE THE EYES OF THE LORD?

    YES or NO?

    John, Chapter 6, 27: Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

    Will a child of God with the Spirit of God dwelling within them, labour for anything that does not endureth unto everlasting life?

    Sports and Games.

    No sports are of God and endureth unto eternal life.

    Entertaining yourself by watching people play sports.

    Not of God and does not endureth unto eternal life.

    Video games.

    Not of God and does not endureth unto eternal life.

    Movies and tv shows that are fictional and make believe.

    Not of God and does not endureth unto eternal life.

    Laboring for money and gold and silver.

    Not of God and does not endureth unto eternal life.

    Laboring for anything of this world.

    Not of God and does not endureth unto eternal life.

    Listening to music that is not of God.

    Not of God and does not endureth unto eternal life.

    Anything make believe and fictional.

    entertaining yourself with it in anyway.

    Not of God and does not endureth unto eternal life.

    Any entertainment of this world.

    Not of God and does not endureth unto eternal life.

    Houses - land - cars - clothes - food - jewelry - gold - entertainment - stocks - bonds etc etc etc

    all things of this world

    Not of God and does not endureth unto eternal life.

    If the fire can burn it up...it is not

    Not of God and does not endureth unto eternal life.

    If anything you are doing in your day can not pass through the fire...

    Not of God and does not endureth unto eternal life.

    People who do not love God with all their heart are not going to give up everything of this world.

    If you love God with all your heart, how could anything or anyone else have any part of it.

    God would have it all to himself.

    If you love God with all your heart then that would mean there is no part of your heart for no one else or anything else.

    If you love God with all your heart with all your mind with all your soul and with all your strength

    God will be the only thing in your life everyday.

    The Word of God says "Do you not know that those who are employed in the temple service get their food from the temple, and those who serve at the altar share in the sacrificial offerings? In the same way, the Lord commanded that those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel." in 1 Corinthians 9:13-14. Do you disagree with God?

    Ann, he may not answer unless you include "yes or no"

    So do you now understand the new rule:

    Yes or no
