  1. 1. 1 Dr. Frank Chase, Jr. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Dr. FRANK CHASE, JR., is a native of Baltimore, Maryland. He graduated from Walbrook High School in 1978 and then enlisted and served in the United States Army for four years. During his path in life, he has served as a teacher, counselor, mentor and leader in men's ministries and has spoke at various men’s conferences. He is a graduate of Washington State University and has a BA degree in Communications with 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. He also started his publishing company, FC Publishing, LLC to self publish his first two books. As a writer, Dr. Chase authored his first book, False Roads to Manhood, What Women Need to Know: What Men Need to Understand, dealing with the issues of manhood. He recently published his second book titled, Kleptomaniac: Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway, which takes you on a proverbial archaeological quest to uncover the true meaning of biblical tithing. Not only does the book cover the Old Testament tithe, but it examines what the New Testament teaches about giving and so-called tithing. Dr. Chase has also authored and published religious and relationship articles for newspapers, online magazines and print media. He has appeared on local television and Internet radio programs.

It is not uncommon for people to remark that Chase is a very easy person to talk to. Frank lives with his wife Teresa in Alabama and is the father of six children and the grandfather of eight. Mr. Chase currently works as senior aviation writer for Army Helicopters for the Department of the Army’s monthly publication, PS Magazine, LOGSA, located at Redstone Arsenal, AL.
  2. 2. 2 About the book 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
  3. 3. 3 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, they will learn what the Bible really 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. _________________________________________________________ Title: Kleptomaniac: Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway?

  4. 4. 4 Why I Wrote Kleptomaniac: Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway? Writing Kleptomaniac: Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway was a journey into seeking truth and fact. In my research journey to rediscover biblical tithing I found the truth. What I learned about a century’s old teaching called tithing was astonishing and shocking. My quest took me to places in the biblical world I never thought about or considered. Does the modern day multifaceted tithing system have any resemblance to biblical tithing is the ultimate and proverbial sixty-four thousand dollar question. The hermeneutical and exegetical answer based on the land, the language and the literature of the biblical Hebrew people is no! God never issued a new commandment to convert the orthodox biblical food tithe into money as a method to support the New Testament church in age of grace. The change of economic systems across history from agricultural to monetary did not cause God to change his holy food tithe to money. That is the purpose of why I wrote this book. I wanted to give readers another perspective that could be researched and proved. This book started out as a 117 page power point study and morphed into a 400 page book after years of research. I practiced tax-deductible greenback tithing for 30 years. After extensive research on the subject and prayer, I discovered the Bible never endorsed monetary tithing as a command or a principal in the New Testament. When I peeled back the tithing onion in biblical and secular history, shock and dismay beat upon my theological head like a 2x4. When I regained theological consciousness, it was apparent money tithing as it is taught today is suspect. The Savior followed 613 instructions of the Law and the only authentic stipulated tithing law He endorsed was the tithe the Bible emphatically claims are eatable items such as crops, cattle, herd, flocks and sheep. In Jesus’ own words, in Matthew 23:23, he acknowledges that the Pharisees tithed mint, rue and cumin, which were eatable items and yet somehow people assume money is implied? The bottom line; tithing is not money, but food and Yahweh never commuted the food tithe to money in the 1st century nor the 21st century. Defining the authentic biblical tithe to include non-food sources is not mentioned in the Holy Scriptures. To command the tithe of money is “teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:9). Also, tithing money violates what Yeshua said, “Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition” (Matt 15:6). The New Testament has no tithing commands; however, you will find much concerning abundant giving from the heart.
  5. 5. 5 I wrote this book to start a conversation about tithing and to dig up how and why money tithing came into existence and the reasons and justifications to commute the food tithe to money. While writing this book, I had to quarantine my anger as I discovered truth after truth so that my emotions would not cloud my analysis and research. When I began this journey to learn more about orthodox biblical tithing, I followed the example of Yeshua (Jesus) who said, “You search the Scriptures…” My research journey began with reading multiple books and hundreds of articles on tithing. As a theologian, I felt it was my duty to share my findings with the world and let each individual reader determine the validity of my research. I felt it would have been a disservice to practice self-censorship and not share what I had learned. As I uncovered the facts on tithing, I quickly realized during the writing process that I would never be able to put in a book all that I had learned. Writing this book has been an amazing biblical, proverbial, archeological journey of epic proportions. In the quest for truth and understanding, no stoned was left unturned. Writing this book taught me more about the Bible than I had ever learned before in my life. I truly received an education in the practice of biblical tithing, and I think writing this book will give every reader an education in this subject that has not studied extensively in seminaries and theological institutions.

The Untwisted Truth About the Centuries Old Tithes and Offering Deception examines the history of church tithes, a practice from the early days of Christianity which takes a darker turn as its history and connections to actual Scripture are probed from its original applications to modern times. But if readers expect a supportive Scripture-based emphasis on the value of tithes, it should be advised that Kleptomaniac does not toe a party line of religious propriety but offers a sobering and critical examination of the notion of tithes and how it has changed over the centuries. Church-goers who struggle with the idea of tithes and Church donation processes will discover that there's reason for their concerns. There is an ongoing battle for truth and orthodoxy surrounding these matters, and this too is covered as Kleptomaniac analyzes the Biblical roots and intention of tithes and how the Church has applied them over the centuries. This book is dedicated "To those who have suffered the wrath of family, friends, pastors, churches and other Christians for changing their giving practice from mandatory tithing to New Covenant, post-tithe freewill giving, remember, this fight to reveal the truth about tithing started centuries ago. People from many denominations and religious groups have held views against tithing long before we were born and the debate still rages on in the annals of theology." That tithing has long been a powerful controversy is reflected in the Introduction's dedication: "To those who have been excommunicated from their church, to those who feel shunned, to those who have lost friends, to those who have been cut off from fellowship and to those who want to give from their heart without a percentage mandate, your voices will echo through the pages of this book. Also, to the believers from past generations who died never knowing that a curse on their lives never existed for not tithing, may this book be a light to your descendants who are still afraid to question tithing." Despite its fiery contentions, Kleptomaniac's approach rests firmly on a combination of historical precedent, experience and analysis, and Scriptural quotes that back Dr. Frank Chase Jr.'s scrutiny. Chapters thus adopt a scholarly tone as they pull quotes from Scripture to analyze them: "I will examine the different tithes as separate items for context. The Bible gives specific instructions on how to distribute the tithe and to whom the tithe belonged. Who did God command to receive the tithe and who paid the tithe? Numbers 18, lays out the legal legislation on tithes under the law. However, before we look at this text, let's jump forward to the New Testament. Hebrews 7:5 is the nail in the proverbial coffin that says who can collect tithes." From keywords and comparing Bible references to how tithes were (and are) being stolen from early to modern times, Dr. Chase's scholarly analysis is precise, well detailed and reasoned, intricately researched and referenced, and yet is very accessible to lay audiences: "I think this book presents convincing doctrinal evidence that no money tithe argument can be established because it is inconsistent with Scripture, context and history. Although the Bible clearly describes that tithing took
  7. 7. 7 place in many verses, it does not mean that we continue the practice through commuting the tithe to money. The description of tithing food in the Old Testament does not equate to a money tithe prescription in the New Testament." Dr. Chase's attention to detail in covering the history of tithing and his analysis of what constitutes an authentic tithe in keeping with God' Biblical directives includes a great deal of research into early Greek and Hebrew writings, creating a weighty yet authoritative, accessible piece filled with empirical evidence and discussions central to the tithe's place in Christian theology. Although its research-backed history is not light reading, its attention to well- researched detail is impeccably presented, and represents a breath of fresh air to a topic typically laden with more emotion than reasoned inspection. The result is a thought-provoking read which is very highly recommended for any Church member interested in the history and ongoing debate over tithes, their mandate, and where and how they are spent. D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review. http://www.midwestbookreview.com/mbw/jan_17.htm#donovan Reader’s Favorite Book Review for Kleptomaniac: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway? Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite Kleptomaniac: Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway? The untwisted truth about the centuries-old tithes and offering deception by Dr. Frank Chase Jr, TH. D fills a narrow but very real niche in the area of biblically derived lessons and advice on the subject of tithes and offerings. I would have thought most Christians would research this topic themselves if it were very important to them, but to have all the references in one book, along with sound commentary and advice from a biblical scholar, certainly makes it easier. Dr. Frank Chase Jr. describes his own evolution of ideas about tithing and I must say we went through many of the same phases in pretty much the same order. I stopped evolving while Frank Chase Jr. went on to write this book that helps other Christians who have the same questions he had. Christianity at its best. Kleptomaniac: Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway? may have more biblical quotes and references to tithing and money in general than any book I have ever read, save, of course, the Bible itself. It is
  8. 8. 8 written in a very smooth and articulate style that I’m guessing will be understandable to most people, but at the same time Dr. Frank Chase Jr’s education and vocabulary are evident on every page. As is his faith and his desire to help. From Abraham to Paul, Frank Chase Jr. delves into the origin, the definition, the application, and even the abuse of the custom of tithing. It is an interesting and sometimes colorful history and one Christians should certainly be more aware of. This book will help them. https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/kleptomaniac Reviewed by John Staughton of Self Publishing Review Kleptomaniac is an insightful and well-constructed argument on tithing and offerings at church, not only defending the author’s decision not to give money blindly, but also defending his right to seek the truth in Bible Scripture. Everything that the author Frank Chase Jr. says is backed up in some way with huge amounts of research, resulting in a comprehensive and rather airtight argument against this unfair system that is often foisted on believers. The balanced approach of the book is particularly enjoyable; there are no judgments or inflammatory language, but there is simply impassioned debate from a man who cares enough about his religion to perform his due diligence. There are a few points that seem to veer off into unsupported opinions, but these are few and far between. Furthermore, there are a number of spots where word choice is a bit odd (e.g., “I asphyxiated on verses about tithing”, rather than fixated) and some grammatical editing is needed here before this is published. However, despite the delicate subject matter, the author approaches the topic with well-researched evidence, solid facts, and his own firm beliefs, to deliver a very insightful read recommended for those interested in or needing information on Church culture and community. http://www.selfpublishingreview.com/2016/09/kleptomaniac-whos-really-robbing-god-anyway-by- frank-chase-jr/

This chapter examines different tithing practices and will not focus on the number of tithes. Individual study of the doctrine of one tithe in Israel is a must for understanding the tithe practices of the Hebrew people. No matter what position you take on how many tithes, it is important to understand the tithe in Hebrew is always food and never
  11. 11. 11 money. This chapter examines a tithe from agricultural production and another from an increase in animals (livestock), which came from farmers and herders who tithed based on Leviticus 27:30-33. Based on the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (ISBE), the view is, “there is an obvious apparent discrepancy between the legislation in Leviticus and Deuteronomy. It is harmonized in Jewish [Hebrew] tradition, not only theoretically, but in practice, by considering the tithes as three different tithes, which are named the first tithe, the second tithe and the poor tithe, which is called the third tithe.” The ISBE also suggests that all three tithes came from the original tithe and three separate tithes did not exist. That issue is not a topic of this chapter, but it is worth individual research because some Jewish historians suggest Israel paid three different tithes. The orthodox tithe in Israel is often misinterpreted and commuted to cold hard cash because of a lack of understanding of the history, culture, religious practices and customs of the Hebrew people. In Leviticus 27:30 and 32 the Bible clearly defines what is tithed. It says, And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’s. It is holy to the LORD. … 32 And concerning the tithe of the herd or the flock, of whatever passes under the rod, the tenth one shall be holy to the LORD” (NKJV). Based on the language used in the ISBE, this tithe is the first tithe or sometimes referred to as the Levitical tithe as detailed in Numbers chapter 18. God’s giving instructions to Israel on redeeming people and property included those who didn’t want to tithe but desired to exchange the tithe for a price. The Hebrew Israelites kept the tithe but paid money to buyback the tithe with a service fee added. The instructions
  12. 12. 12 Yahweh gave to the Israelites allowed them to redeem (or buyback) the crop tithe but not the tithe from the herds or flocks as stated in Leviticus 27:33. Even though the verse does not say who the tithe belongs to, then how would God collect the tithe from the Israelites? Would he stick his hand out of the heavens to earth and collect the tithe? He said the tithe is holy unto Him and set apart for His use. To determine who God set apart the tithe for, we need to further investigate scripture to find out. And to set the record straight, the Bible says the tithe belongs to the Levites as their inheritance from God. Before the law, no tithe command existed and all giving fell under the auspices of gratitude or freewill giving. Now when God speaks to Moses, he commands a tithe as part of the law and introduces a middleman, the Levites. The tithe Abram gave before the law didn’t come from a pre-law principle but happened based on customs for the rules of war. Tithing existed long before Abram gave a tithe to Melchizedek. When God instructs Moses on the tithing laws, He defines what the tithe is. In Numbers and Deuteronomy, God states to whom and where Israel should tithe. The context of Leviticus 27:30-33 shows the tithe is land based, which makes Israel an agricultural economy. Israel had monetary system and never tithed money in a partial agricultural economy. Author Ron Knot addresses the buyback program in his book, Tithing Fact or Fiction? He writes, “The tithe was known to be the Lords property while it was still growing in the field. In Ancient times, the farmer could buy his tithe back from the Lord by paying the priest 120% of its value in money. The priest in turn, would give the tithe (produce) back to the farmer and take the money and then buy a replacement tithe. Money was used but never as a substitute for a tithe. The priests would never present money to the Lord since His tithe was to be holy to the Him and money was not holy (Leviticus 27:30). It must be remembered,
  13. 13. 13 the biblical definition of a tithe included what the tithe was composed of, which was agricultural products only.” We know the tithe is not money based on the Hebrew word for land. The keyword in Leviticus 27:30 refers to land. The tithe comes from the land. Land in Hebrew is erets (Strong’s #776). It represents the earth, arable ground or owned land. The land God speaks of is the land He promised Abram in Genesis 13:17. If God promised Abram land, then how would God give Abram the land of Canaan that other people occupied? God’s promise fits the Hebrew meaning because erets also means owned land. It is important to note that tithing had not started yet in Leviticus because Israel still roamed the wilderness. Leviticus gives details of the tithe requirements for implementation once they got into the land of Canaan. Let’s look at Leviticus 27:30-33 with an eye of critical examination. From the scripture, we can extrapolate that the tithe is agricultural products (seed of the land and fruit of the tree) and herds and flocks. Now, the scripture does not say 10 percent of the herds or flocks. It says the tenth animal that passed under the shepherd’s rod is the tithe, not the first tenth that is common in tithe teachings taught today. The first 10th of your check goes to God is the message every time the church doors open, but when examining the scriptures, God never says that in Leviticus. Since farmers and cattle herders tithed in Israel, make sure you understand that Yahweh meant what he said about the tenth animal. If a cattle herder had less than 9 cattle in a birth cycle, whether sheep, bulls, or goats, they did not tithe because God wanted the tenth animal from the increase not the ninth. Herders tithed only the tenth animal no matter whether its condition was good or bad. The scripture text accepted the eleventh animal as a tithe if the herder thought the tenth did not meet the standard. Despite
  14. 14. 14 the condition of the tenth animal, it became the tithe and could not be exchanged for a good animal because the tenth animal was holy unto the Lord. Israel paid a tithe on an increase and never on a decrease. For example, if you have nine sheep and during the birth cycle, those sheep would need to give birth to ten or more calves to tithe on the increase. If you had less than ten, you did not tithe. When you examine the Jewish Mishnah, which is a compilation of Jewish oral traditions called the Oral Law, the text reveals that whatsoever is kept watch over, cultivated, and grows from the soil; whatever is used for food (excluding unclean) is what is tithed. The tenth sheep, the tenth goat, the tenth bull was the tithe, not ten percent. Remember if a herdsman had nine cattle, he didn’t tithe because the tenth animal that passed under the rod belonged to God as the tithe despite its condition. No one can assume from silence in scripture that a man in Israel tithed a tenth of his income from making a living, harvesting clams. If he raised walnuts and sold some to the marketplace, it was not titheable based on the empirical and historical definition of the word tithe as eatable items. Leviticus chapter 27 focuses on vows. The chapter ends with a critical introduction to tithing meaning it was not the writer’s intention to lay out a full description of the tithe laws. The fuller descriptions of the tithe laws are in Numbers and Deuteronomy.
