Vision Builders 2014 Information

The false doctrine on tithing is an illegal doctrine of the church; a legalistic heresy that is promoted by Prosperity Cults who do not rightly handle the different covenants between Ancient Israel and the covenant that God has made with New Testament believers.

Why tithing is not a Christian Doctrine (Part 1)

Unfortunately, the false tithing doctrine is taught in C3 among many other false doctrines. The result has caused serious hardships on individuals and families in the past.

Also, the most vulnerable in the C3 movement are open to financial exploitation. For example, we have warned our readers in the past how C3 offer poor (and potentially grave) advice to people who are struggling financially.

We have covered C3 pushing this poor financial directive onto its members in the past.

In 2014, C3 decided to broadcast the following instructions on their own myc3church.net website.

Can I give to Vision Builders instead of Tithing?
Vision Builders should be seen as giving ‘over and above’ the Tithe.

I am in significant debt, should I pay off my debts or give to Vision Builders?
If you are in ‘out of control’ debt, after your tithe the debt should be your  next priority. Reducing the debt to a manageable amount (or even clearing it completely) should be attempted as you also make a manageable gift to Vision Builders. Remember no amount is insignificant.

Here is the information in it’s proper context:

How To Be Part Of Vision Builders
