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 readers become analysts in getting to the root 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? 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. Questions will be answered for those confused about the requirement to pay ten percent of their income to religious institutions.
Monetary tithing has been taught as an undisputed fact 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 Hebrew language and presents the authentic meaning of the orthodox term based on the land, language and literature of the Hebrew people.
