Better to lose a job than the truth. Better to lose friends than salvation. Better to study to show yourself approved and stand up for righteousness than to have God send you a delusion.
2 Thessalonians 2:11 “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie”.
The paid professional preacher has a delicate balancing act. He should fight for truth above keeping the members happy and comfortable. Anyone who’s income is tied to a ministry is also challenged to follow the party line or truth that God gives you. Don’t reject or set aside truth for a paycheck.
I have had more than one preacher tell me what he really believed in private and watched him preach the party line from the pulpit. Repent!
