From the days of Jesus and even before this time, man always seems to learn how to profit from nearly everything, anything can become a means of personal gain.
There it’s nothing wrong with “profiting”, even from the gospel, as long as profits are shared and used as a resource for others, especially the poor. The greedy hoarding of resource for personal gain was always condemned by Jesus.
So, LETS NOT DO THIS…FREELY WE RECEIVE, FREELY GIVE, with all liberality on all occasions,whenever there is a genuine need. Do not withhold good when it is in our power to do good.
2 Corinthians 2:17 AMP
For we are not, like so many, like hucksters making a trade of peddling God’s Word shortchanging and adulterating the divine message; but like men of sincerity and the purest motive, as commissioned and sent by God, we speak His message in Christ (the Messiah), in the very sight and presence of God.
To PEDDLE – to be a retailer, to peddle, to make money by selling anything, to get sordid gain by dealing in anything, to do a thing for base gain, to trade in the word of God, to try to get base gain by teaching divine truth, to corrupt, to adulterate, peddlers were in the habit of adulterating their commodities for the sake of gain.
