We all know that not all who preach the gospel do so to serve the Lord. They don’t do it because they care for the lost but to enrich themselves or boost their ego. Such individuals existed during Paul’s time. Nothing is new under the sun.
“It’s true that some are preaching out of jealousy and rivalry…” (Phil. 1:15 NLT)
“Those others do not have pure motives as they preach about Christ. They preach with selfish ambition, not sincerely…”(Phil. 1:17 NLT)
