A Pastor Has Given Back To His Congregation By Giving Away Money In Collection Basket

‘The Season of Giving’ really impacted Pastor John Gray during his first Sunday of the month sermon.
During his sermon at Relentless Church, he preached heavily about ‘pulpit pimps’ who he considered church leaders who only always asked their congregation to give, but they never give back to their congregation.
According to the Christian Post, towards the end of Pastor Gray’s church service, he went into detail about what thought about these ‘pulpit pimps.’
“For too long people have stood in a pulpit and told you to give, give, give. Very rarely have I seen churches stop and say, ‘Leave the baskets out, let the people get what they need.’ We’ve got too many pulpit pimps who want to get fat off people but don’t want to meet the needs of the poor people. And Jesus said that’s who you supposed to be taking care of. We got widows, we got orphans, we’ve got single moms in here. We might not be able to do everything, but we can do something. I wish we could do more, but it’s the best we can do right now,” he said.
