Music plays an important role in church. People love to be in churches where music is lively and as such churches invest big on musical instruments. However, these instruments need people who can play them. We have seen that in many churches, those who play musical instruments get paid some money while those who sing in the same choir get nothing. Some not so big churches go to the extent of hiring people to come and play instruments in church.
The question is , 'Should one be paid for playing musical instrument in church?
One pastor was quoted on social media saying that you are a thief if you play church instrument and collect money. The founder and leader of Kharis Church in the United Kingdom, Pastor David Antwi was addressing his congregates during a service when he made the remarks. He said that such a person is satan's cousin.
If service providers like instrument players can be labelled as thieves for getting paid to play in church, how about church leaders who collect money to pray for people? Those church leaders who collect gifts from church members in return for prayer and prophecy? Well, let's here your views on this.
