What's Wrong In Making Profit Doing Church Work?

Is it proper to make profit when you are doing any work for a Church or a Christian related organization? For example, as an Artist, should i make profit when i design church handbills, posters, Advertising materials etc?

Hi Bari_Kade,

How succinct, letting scripture speak (resoundingly) for itself.

Much appreciated.

Hi Everyone,

It may help to distinguish true church work from the multitude of man-made organisational business that masquerades as service to God.

God bless

I Timothy 6:5

(BBE) - Bitter talk of men who, being evil in mind and dead to what is true, take the faith to be a way of making profit.

(CEV) - and nasty quarrels. They have wicked minds and have missed out on the truth. These people think religion is supposed to make you rich.

(GNB) - and constant arguments from people whose minds do not function and who no longer have the truth. They think that religion is a way to become rich.

(HCSB) - and constant disagreement among men whose minds are depraved and deprived of the truth, who imagine that godliness is a way to material gain.

(MSG) - Eventually there's an epidemic of backstabbing, and truth is but a distant memory. They think religion is a way to make a fast buck.

(Amp) - And protracted wrangling and wearing discussion and perpetual friction among men who are corrupted in mind and bereft of the truth, who imagine that godliness or righteousness is a source of profit [a moneymaking business, a means of livelihood]. From such withdraw.

It all depends on the person doing the work. Most of the time when it is just done once, it's kool doing it free. But when it becomes a business agreement, there's nothing bad in making some profit.
