David Hayward admits that some Christian churches are built this way:
You have to wonder how many rich pastors and televangelists would continue doing their job (preaching the Gospel?) if their salaries were reduced to what most of their audience makes. Would they have the conviction to keep preaching because “God called them to do it” and money doesn’t have anything to do with that? Would they transfer to a different church? Would they find another line of work altogether?
