The insanity of the Modern Christian church..PAYING MUSICIANS.



hi Dean this is Nigel Burnett from the UK I hope you're having a fantastic day I want to show you something this video is called the insanity of the Christian Church pain for musicians okay I told you before that the praise and worship department in many churches is why the biggest budget that's where a lot that money's going you see big churches like Jesus house Ruach pay musicians probably at least double to what the figures I'm gonna write it down here I always fought is that's a complete waste I said this before I said it a thousand times I've never felt good receiving money for playing drums in church I've always fought yes my conscience has always bothered me I thought it's a sin got a spoken to me personally about it many times a funk god I've recently stopped but it's wherever I can keep up because obviously when I builds up a is not easy and churches sometimes will throw money at you there it's like they're desperate for musicians you have to have a drummer they have to have a keyboardist otherwise it's like service can't function people won't come people won't turn up churches over without musicians and I think this is ridiculous I think that music is a crutch and one of reasons why people cannot worship and connect so good because they focus on the music and a song and they will rehearse in the week and spend all this time trying to get the songs perfect the right key the right grooved right be it's ridiculous it keeps us busy gives us something to do in ministry is good for the youth is good for people to feel involved in the present worship team and it's good but yeah there's a big difference between just being in a pew and being in a worship team massive difference you'll automatically make new friends you're closer you're closer to the core central ministries after five four of ministries because the pastor sees you as an extension of of his ministry so as a massive distance between just sitting in a Pew and maybe having a few friends and never getting involved and being in a praise and worship team on the stage back in the past our win is minister and big difference so I see the spiritual advantages and a social advantages but I want to show you how much money a particular church is paying musicians or what's going on where that money could be going no less on the phone has been our focus now let's look at TLC ministries for example I don't know exactly what their pain only know what they've heard but when I look at what TLC Christian ministries in Luton is pain they're musicians man you can't wait I might pause this let me pause this I can get around focus actually let me show up at the lion that's a bit better okay so let's say they're paying east musician seventy pounds right so it pays seventy you know they've got a five piece band I think I know the glass sex guy who I introduced to them I assume they got guitars and this is five musicians being paid about seventy between sixty and seventy pounds each yeah because I was also played there I think one time last year and there's about that at least sixty I don't care how much it is or how much it snow iced up my business I'm not getting involved in the ministries business or their politics or whatever they do what they want to do I'm just showing you 17 times five right so okay hey no I'm not going to do it on my head it's been a long time since I'd be in that school now that's 350 pounds a week that could be going to things like helping single moms in the church but that's one of her duties even go to actually educating people in the church so you can pay for the people in the church to learn how to play music you know but then you're not gonna do that and then pay them are you you see they think about these musicians they are not members of the church they're coming just to get this and that's it take that away and see if they turn up yeah so you can use that money to educate what can you do fifty three hundred fifty pounds a week you you can send these guys to keyboard lessons drum lessons in the week easily yeah you can send money to mission trips and give money to missionaries that's going on and spreading the gospel and helping other countries for fun whatever you can help the community put the money to the food bank etc stop to the siren stops I think they're coming for the musicians I was for write that churches paying musicians is one of the biggest waste of money in church history I can't understand it three hundred fifty pounds and if you could say all right then but most churches will just scale it down to just two musicians drums and keys because we all know that's that's the court you can't do that those to advise you ain't got bad so that's still over a hundred pounds a week four hundred pounds a month that churches are wasting their money because they feel that you have to have music it's important there's nothing a New Testament about having insurance it's just making melody in your hearts of the Lord sharing spiritual songs with one another to encourage you whatever you see I'm saying so we're wasting money wasting resources it's a huge industry let's not even talk about when you put on an event and you want to get some singing artists and they want money to and some of them charge and per song and in their charge in mileage he gets ridiculous and you can't even put on a little basic event of a two – Shh offers and be encouraged by each other's talents you see about paying a huge expense so I think it's a shame so much money is I think it's a waste yes grateful musician listen ma'am if I wanted to I could be playing at free churches a day taking on so much money in one day on a Sunday and the Saturday if I if I play that Sabbath churches I don't know any some of churches that would pay me it's a play to be honest this is Sunday churches are doing it and I can take up so much money I could work part time I wouldn't have to work full time and that's on top of gigs doing obviously obviously other gigs on Saturday and Friday so what do you guys think do you think that this is a good way to spend and share our money do you think that this is necessary or do you think that this is a total waste do you think is biblical or do you think that is an absolute sin that musicians are making merchandise of the gospel merchandise of the church would you play if they cut your money in half or not do it at all that's all I'm trying to say I'm challenging your you don't want to hear this kind of stuff you just want your money anything I need the income as well it's ridiculous how much money I've made over the years a ridiculous amount of money sometimes I'll go and play somewhere getting nearly a hundred pounds for playing for twenty minutes so dick Ellis and I'm thinking these guys are mad they really want to pay me it's kind of what I do professional gigs I don't get that kind of money sometime secular gates do you know what you can do this money do you know what you can how you can help people in a church they're struggling with that kind of money oh no a week how did these churches pay their fees and their bills when they paying this to you why don't you get a seat put a CD on that's what harvest time ministry does let's put a CD on and appraisal militia team sings on top of it it's great have a great time down there some choices don't bother it some chose to just have an acoustic guitar
