Paid Clergy

Is it OK for a Pastor to Earn 600k a Year?
Who Should Know How Much a Pastor Makes?

Interesting articles - it makes one glad to be LDS and not have to worry about that.

I know that their are many salaried pastors who preach for the right reasons, and have the difficult stress of needing to raise enough money to keep their churches healthy (or the blessing of having enough and being able to contribute the remainder to worthy causes). But for those preaching for "filthy lucre", I suppose they "have their reward."

It is very important in our own financial lives that we have the right motivations - supporting our family, preparing for the future, and contributing to those worthy causes. Otherwise, we will have no more real reward for our efforts than those who preach to get gain.
