Peddling the Word of God

People who are all about promoting themselves, especially those who are in the ministry, bother me.  I have followed the ministries of men who started out sharing where they got their information and inspiration but have morphed into claiming and promoting “their” insights.  That sickens me.
Peddling the Word of God
A day or so ago I was reading 2 Corinthians 2:17.  Paul there contrasts his ministry with those who were peddling the Word of God.  The contrast with peddling was sincerity.  I know of ministries that are all about the ticket price or the offering.  That does not seem to line up with either the ministry of Jesus or the ministry of Paul.

You may want to exercise caution in following one who is continually suggesting that you buy their material, or attend their seminars.

Paul might have questioned their sincerity.
