Money loving pastors have multiplied

Paul in his letters to Timothy emphasizes the importance of not loving money and to make sure he especially is not “greedy for filthy lucre”. The ministers in the time of Christ ministry were greedy for money, but displayed a fake exterior of concern for the church and its members. Today we have the same problem but the ministers today just come out and say that they are into money. They are so preoccupied with wealth that they are often titled prosperity gospel preachers. Yet we see Paul instructing young Timothy not to follow this ministry model and also warning him about the pitfalls of such a model.
1 Timothy 6:9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and [into] many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
