For regular readers, the title of his post probably sounds strange. You may have read “The head of the church should be paid more than others” and decided that good ol’ Alan had lost his marbles… or that someone had taken over his blog. Well, that’s not the case… I don’t think.
You see, more than half of the traffic from my blog comes from search engines. (I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but it is a true thing nonetheless.) Occasionally, I check the search strings that people use to reach my blog.
Yep… you guessed it. Someone searched for “The head of the church should be paid more than others.” And, whoever searched for that string looked at a few pages on my blog. (By the way, if you’re reading this, and you found my blog using that search string, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to know what you were looking for.)
Now, guess what. I agree with that statement (the search string) 100%. If it were possible, I would agree with that statement more than 100%.
Of course, there is only one “head of the church,” and his name is Jesus, and he is the Christ (Messiah), and he is the Son of God, and he is living and present and empowering every one of his followers and every group of his followers.
And, he deserves to be paid more than any other. In fact, he desires all of the pay. Every penny.
So, let’s give it to him.
