Back in the old days, before there was a protestant denomination, the Catholic Priests used to make people pay for forgiveness of their sins in a myriad of ways. Sometimes, the priests would offer forgiveness of sins if the "sinner" agreed to fight in the Crusades.
It doesn't matter who steps up to take the initiative to have people pay for hope, it is just plain wrong -- and anyone who knows anything about the Bible should know that you can pray to God for forgiveness in Jesus Christ, and He'll do it for FREE.
So, if you ever come across a man who calls Himself "called by God" to take your money for the blessings He has to offer, then get away from him as fast as you can. He is a FALSE TEACHER, and one day, he will have his reward.
