Would you pay to be a member?

It seems that somebody in Finland has created a website to assist people in resigning from the church.

Evidently, in order to become a member of the church (formal member) in Finland, you have to pay a yearly tax.

People are leaving the church, most often not because of religious issues, but because they don't want to pay.

It's silly to think that you could have a tithe and a cost of membership when the supposed purpose of a church is to facilitate people's growth in Christ.

I think this is an indicator that Finland is fallow ground for those offering to show them a personal relationship with God.
