Buy the truth and sell it not

If there is scripture which will support selling the truth and or requiring money to pay for teaching the ways of the Lord, let me know.  I marvel that any true worshipper of the Lord Jesus would consider asking money in exchange for teaching a new commandment to another person.

I have many study note writings which are free and cost nothing other than a person’s time to read the mate lines of scripture to answer these questions:

Who is God and how many persons is the true God and Saviour?

What must one do to be saved?

What is the meaning of speaking in tongues?

Did Jesus suffer in hell and fulfil Genesis 22 line 8 and Leviticus 5 lines 9 and 10?

My question is by what authority and by whose example, proven by scripture lines, is the truth and teaching of the ways of the Lord Jesus to be sold for money?

I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  Romans 1:16

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.  Romans 1:17

Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.  1 John 2:8


Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.  Proverbs 23:23
