2 Peter 2
King James Version
2 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not
again the Apostle proves that it is false teachers and prophets that make MERCHANDISE of you. Yes, they were told to feed the sheep, not for filthy lucre. or pay for their work. Yes these greedy dogs say you must pay them; tithe to them.
