Pastor Frank Benson Jones
Matthew 21:12-13 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. (See also Mark 11:15, Luke 19:45-46, and John 2:13-16)
Pastor Frank Benson Jones has been a pastor for over twenty-five years, and he currently is the pastor of Pentecostal Temple Church in Compton, California. He has been appalled by the financial practices of some of the pastors with whom he has been associated and whom he has observed. Rev. Jones served as a community organizer and worked as a volunteer for the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) that was an umbrella organization established to help fight the war on poverty. Frank was asked to do an analysis of the OEO in his neighborhood, and he discovered that the greatest economic opportunities were given to those who worked in the office at the higher echelons. After he reported what he had observed, he was no longer welcomed to work as a volunteer for the OEO.
Pastor Jones has seen the same kind of top-heavy financial benefits in many churches, and for over 30 years, he has been outspoken about the need to reform church financial reporting and operations in America. Because he has chosen to criticize the financial conduct of the prosperity preachers, he has been ostracized and isolated by them and many others who want to get rich at the expense of the people who attend their services. Frank says there are too many poor people being financially exploited by preachers who appear to be in the ministry for the sole purpose of getting rich at the expense of those who trust them. Pastor Jones has written the book $top the Pro$perity Preacher$ to encourage all Americans to join in a concerted effort to stop this travesty. Pastor Jones says, "AFTER THE PROFITS ARE REMOVED FROM THE PULPIT, ONLY THE PROPHETS WILL REMAIN."
