Pressbox (Press Release) -
Tired of being told you rob God if you don't pay ten percent to the church of your income to the church and that you are cursed if you don't cough up God's money to avoid bad things happening? One reader wrote, "One of the things I like most about the book Kleptomaniac: who's Really Robbing God Anyway is that it does not tell you not to give or support your local church, it just educates us on the proper way to give. I feel this book was written to free our mindset so we can give freely without convictions. For all Christians, this should be a must read. To read a sample on Amazon, check it out at: https://www.amazon.com/Kleptomaniac-Whos-Really-Robbing-Anyway/dp/0975521772/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1471284828&sr=8-1
The author practiced tithing of ten percent of his gross and net income for more than 30 years. Shockingly, after researching the subject more deeply, a theological earthquake shook the foundation of his belief in tithing ten percent. The author, Frank Chase Jr., went on a research journey for three years and discovered the biblical truth about tithing and seeks to share this newfound information with the entire church world. For many people who have had doubts about tithing a tenth of their income, no longer will they have to ponder questions about the practice of tithing because the book, Kleptomaniac: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway scripturally dismantles many of the modern pro-tithe arguments that state monetary tithing is mandatory. So, what is the tithe? The answer is simple. The tithe is grain, crops, cattle, herds and flocks. And the question is, who changed the Bible to include money as a tithe? It was the Holy Roman Catholic Church. You can read some of the authorís thoughts about the book in a Book Bubble on bublish at https://www.bublish.com/bubble/stream/10115
Statistics show that over the annuals of church history, churchgoers tithe percentages have always remained below five percent. This indicates that many tithe teachings have not convinced people that the practice actually works as propagated. For those who refuse to tithe in some religious circles, they are excommunicated or shunned. History is replete with examples of religious institutions threatening members with hell fire for not paying ten percent of their income. Some have been kicked out of churches for simply questioning the practice. However, the truth is coming forth with enlightenment. And before you attend your next church service, make sure you know all the biblical facts on tithing because it is in your best financial interest. An Amazon customer wrote, "When it comes to tithing there are so many beliefs (some biblical while others are not). This book is an amazing tool for finding out what the bible says about it. After reading this book, readers will understand more about the new covenant way of giving based on bible scriptures (leaving opinions out)." This book also questions how tithing practices of today affect people financially and how those practices are unlike tithing practices of yesterday. Not only does this book challenge the accepted definitions of the tithe, it also questions the sustainability of current practices, especially when economic times get rough for people who may not be able to give much.

The author meticulously examines the word tithe in both the Hebrew and Greek language. To understand every Bible verse that contains the word tithe, the author gives context and definitive definitions for clarity of the text. This book also explains the concept of giving from a New Testament perspective without the mandate of ten percent and explains why the Apostle Paul never mentioned tithing to any of the New Testament congregations. From Genesis to Revelation, this book is about how to properly interpret biblical terms to arrive at the proper interpretation of a biblical text that refers to money or tithing. The book helps the reader an informed choice as to how they will give in the future. View it in the iBookstore at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/kleptomaniac/id1115970451?mt=11
Since money is vital in every part of society and the church, this book spends a considerable amount of time detailing how money was used in the Bible to help readers know the difference between tithes and money. The tithing phenomenon has been around for centuries and this book is an expose' into how the current doctrine came into existence and who the culprits were who played a major role in what churches teach today. KLEPTOMANIAC is a back to the past look at Israel's history and how they practiced tithing in a theocracy.

----About the Author----
Dr. Frank Chase, Jr. spent four years in the United States Army and after completing his tour of duty; he attended Washington State University (WSU) and graduated in 1989 with a Bachelorís degree in Communications and a minor in Sociology. Because Frank believes in education, he pursued religious degrees and graduated from North Carolina College of Theology with a Bachelor of Biblical Studies, a Master of Arts in Theology, and a Doctor of Theology. When he believes in a cause, he commits himself to gain a full understanding even when it goes against traditional, religious and secular belief systems. He submerged his entire being into the tithe doctrine versus freewill giving for four years to understand the different tithe teaching propagated in the church circuit. Frankís decision to shift from tithing to freewill giving was difficult. His decision resulted in wins and losses both emotionally, spiritually and financially. Through tears, fears and not fully knowing what would happen when he took a stand on freewill giving over tithing, Frank decided to move forward and write the book, Kleptomaniac: Whoís Really Robbing God Anyway? He writes a blog about tithing at http://tithenomore.com.
