Kleptomaniac: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway?
Kleptomaniac: Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway? by Dr. Frank Chase Jr, Th.D. explores the concept of tithing down to its very roots. Using the Bible and other references, the book investigates whether tithing is a mandatory tax or a gift given out of free will, as well as alternative viewpoints for those who’d rather worship with their hearts than their paychecks.
KLEPTOMANIAC, Who's Really Robbing God Anyway? is a trek through the pages of the Bible to find the untwisted truth about the centuries-old false teachings on tithes and offerings. Every page of this book has information that will make you become an analyst in discovering what tithing is in the Old and New Testament. It takes you on a epic theological quest to define the word tithe and then breaks down the differences between giving and tithing as the Bible instructs.
Monetary tithing has been taught as an undisputed fact in churches for centuries. Kleptomaniac: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway challenges that assumption and puts modern tithe teachings under the microscope of scripture. This book examines the word tithe from the original Hebrew language and presents the authentic meaning of the the orthodox term based on the land, language and literature of the Hebrew people.
For church-goers who are tired of being told they rob God of tithes and offerings every Saturday and Sunday, and that God requires a tenth of their income until death, this new book opens the biblical scroll and shines a light on the truth of scripture by debunking centuries-old tithe doctrines, which say a tithe is ten percent of a person's income. The author also explains why many church-goers are not the ones who really rob God. But exposes who the real God robbers are in this shocking tithe manifesto.
The message of the book is that ten percent of a person's income does not represent a biblical tithe. The biblical tithe has always been edible items. A monetary tithe of ten percent represents a tax for religious purposes. A true biblical tithe is narrowly limited to food and clean animals from inside the land of Israel. Also, true biblical tithing was never extended to crafts or trades, and since Jesus was never a farmer, nor headsman, he was not required to tithe.
Kleptomaniac: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway is an educational book that tackles the religious taboo subject such of monetary tithing and presents information about an under-saturated subject in the book world concerning tithing. The book is a scholastic, theological work and should be read by anyone who has skepticism about the truth and accuracy of the modern monetary tithe system that is not contained on the pages of the Bible.
