Why is charging for a prayer training conference wrong?

Luke 11:1-2 (NIV)
One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
He (Jesus) said to them, “When you pray, say:
“‘Father,hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.

Notice when Jesus was asked “teach us to pray” Jesus didn’t charge a fee for his “prayer training conference”. In stead Jesus gave freely the kingdom of God.

Jesus tells his disciple “Freely you have received, freely give.”

If someone’s charging you a fee for them to teach you to pray, Run from them!

Either what their teaching you was not “Freely Given” to them by the Lord and it is a counterfeit teaching, or they have “Freely” received from Jesus but the are disobeying the Lord’s instructions to give freely what they received freely. This is a spirit of greed or lust for money. You will want to stay away for this kind of teacher.

Matthew 10:7-8 (NIV)
As you go, preach this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven is near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
