It’s a free will offering
Re: Church tax issue
Alofa is not a wage or salary.
It is a member’s own free will to give support for the living needs of their spiritual fathers.
They did not sign any employment contract. It is the same as cooking food, and giving some to the faifeau’s family’. Instead, they give money for them to buy what they need/choose.
I hope you can see the ‘real’ reason, very simple, why church members do not agree with this ‘regulation’ that has been recently and deliberately form by Tuilaepa’s government. God bless.
