T.A.C.C. has a purely biblical stance on giving. Tithing is not taught by Jesus, nor is it mandated or should tithing or giving be forced or guilt-tripped on any individual. We do not charge for this miniistry, and you are free not to give if you can’t afford it without feeling guilty. Too many Ministries do that.
There are however many expenses incurred in bringing you the teaching, and education and requested pastoral care you need. Our policy on giving is New Testament and most come from the Apostle Paul who said:
1) “Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9-7). In other words, give for the right reasons because you are cheerful about spreading the gospel.
2) “Do not muzzle the ox as it grinds out the grain” – Paul takes this and reinterprets it from the obvious teaching of Moses in Deuteronomy 25:4 that it is probably a little silly to let an ox, a beast of burden used to grind grain to use for food, and then not feed it by muzzling it. The Ox will die and you will have no grain. Paul uses this direct quote speaking of ministers of the gospel to say that if you do the same to them they will not have enough to live and feed the people spiritually. We can see Paul use it in this context in the New Testament in 1 Timothy 5:18.
3) And finally, as you for the same reason as do teachers and ministries doing God’s work, need to be paid for your work to survive so do we. This does not mean we are making lots of money, quite the opposite. Most of these funds will be sown back into this Church for its expenses in serving you and enhance what you get, as well as hopefully finding a cheap physical sight to meet as time goes on and people develop a vision. Paul says in 1 Timothy 5:18 – “A worker is worthy of his wages”
