Isaiah 56:11

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 11 Yes, they are greedy dogs who can never have enough; they are shepherds who cannot understand; they all look to their own way, every one for his own monetary gain, from his quarter.1 [Not only do the leaders of Christianity not understand anything they purport to represent, they want you to pay them for their false teachings: they want a salary, your contributions, your "offerings," or your "love gifts that they solicit." They can never get enough. They are greedy; they are covetous. They have fallen in the way of Balaam, preaching for hire.]
