“The head of the church should be paid more than others”

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 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.

    When I saw the title, the first thing I thought was, “But Jesus already owns it all.” 🙂

    Probably someone searching for material to write up a Constitution and By Laws for his church so that he can make sure “his” getting paid to be a Christian sounds official before he tries to pull it over on his followers.

    When I say his church I mean that in all sincerity! 🙂 I had a guy the other day ask me if I wanted to join his church and help implement his vision for his church. I said heck no and that I’m only interested in Christ’s church and Christ’s vision for His church. 🙂

    Clever. Witty. Worth the read.

    That was thought when I first read it also.


    Perhaps. Possibly. Probably.


    Thank you.

    I am always amused by the searches that lead people to my blog.

    Arthur, people’s searches lead them to your blog? Dang! 🙂

    Alan, I agree with your agreement of the search-string statement at least 120%. 😉

    Hutch, you’re probably on track with your guessing, sadly.

    Is Jesus short on cash?
