Kleptomaniac: Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway is an educational book that tackles the religious taboo subject of monetary tithing and presents information about an under-saturated subject in the book world. This manifesto is a scholastic, theological work and should be read by anyone who has skepticism about the truth and accuracy of the modern non-biblical monetary tithe system that is not contained on the pages of the scriptures. The ultimate experience in writing this book is that the modern monetary tithe system is a Bible parlor trick and Jedi mind game to get you to believe that God wants people to pay ten percent of their income to the church in perpetuity. Don’t drink the tithing koolaid. Read the book instead!
The message of the book is that ten percent of a person’s income does not represent an authentic biblical tithe. The biblical tithe has always been edible items as required by biblical law. A monetary tithe of ten percent represents a tax for religious purposes instituted by traditions of men. 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.
