From my understanding and reading of history many priests in previous ages took vows of poverty in order to serve the calling of being a member of the clergy. However, these days vows of poverty are only really taken by some priests and primarily by monks at monasteries.
I’ve read the didache of Saint Paul and he says that those in positions where they are ministering shouldn’t take money for their work because it can cloud their judgment while doing work in the name of Christ and can lead some into practicing prosperity gospel.
Do you think members of the clergy should take vows of poverty? Should someone be paid salary to minister?
