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 teachings on tithes and offerings. Every page of this book has information that will make you become an analyst in getting to the bottom line of what tithing is in the Old and New Testament. It takes you on a journey to first define the word tithe and then breaks down the differences between giving and tithing as the Bible instructs. The author attempts to expose what most people believe as fact to bring them to what the Bible actually teaches when it comes to true giving.
Are the arguments put forth today about tithing fact or fiction? This book tackles tough questions like, did God ever require a tithe of money? Was the contents of the tithe always money in the Bible? Who is really robbing God today? Did God change the tithe at some point in biblical history? Are first fruits money? Is the tithe food, money or both? Is the church the storehouse? Did Jesus, Paul and the Disciples tithe? Did the early church honor a money tithe system? Are Christians really cursed for not tithing ten percent of their income? These questions will be answered based on scholarship, the land, the language and the literature of the original Biblical people. Not only will questions be answered for those confused about whether or not they are required to pay ten percent of their income to any religious institution, readers will learn what the Bible teaches about money and stewardship in the interest of seeking truth.
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 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. 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. This 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.
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.
