He knows not at this time the destiny written for him but will awaken to come forth when the heavens decree, leading the down-trodden people to freedom.” A dwarf named Crach listens respectfully as his master relates the prophecy but wonders what it has to do with him, “a small man in a much bigger world!” That’s when his master, an aging wizard named Llwyd ap Crachan Llwyd tells Crach his apprenticeship of ten years is over and he must go on a long journey to the land of the accursed English where he will ultimately serve the future prince of Wales and fulfill his destiny according to the prophecy.

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 false 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 religious institutions, they will learn what the Bible really teaches about money and stewardship. 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.

God is not a man that he should lie.
Therefore, whenever he speaks, obedience is the only expected response.
And, when we obey…there’s no need to repent.
Born in sin and shaped in iniquity, we are by nature prone to all unrighteousness. But God, who is rich in mercies and because of his everlasting love, has provided repentance as the doorway through which, we can begin a new life–old things are passed away and behold all things become new.
Jesus said, “Don’t be surprised when I say to you, you must be born again. (John 3:7, KJV)
The Holy Spirit takes up residence in our hearts, and as we continue to yield ourselves to Him–He empowers us to live in obedience to the word of God.
A life of continuous repentance may seem godly but is indeed slavery to sin.
Why keep on repenting? When we can instead learn to be obedient, for when we’re obedient there’ll be no need for repentance.
Come…. Let’s go on unto perfection. (Hebrews 6:1).

Asking the simple question What If, where the answer is expressed in eleven stories from this author’s first anthology of short stories, Kerry ONeal pushes the limits of imagination from a bucket list we’re all challenged to complete before the end of our life, to being confronted by a ghost who wants to replace the soul of a loved one. With the combination of fantasy, the paranormal, ghosts, Sci-Fi horror, and inspiration, ONeal’s characteristic dark humor, and his savory taste for the macabre and the unknown, extends the bounds of the predictable, and brings us to the brink of sanity and insanity, loneliness and friendship, and into the horrors of human and inhuman existence. Fans of Dean Koonce, Stephen King, Amazing Tales, and The Twilight Zone will enjoy this anthology of unique short stories that will be sure to leave you breathless. What If commemorates the mysteries and the unexplained that encompasses each of us, and articulates how fast time flies. Never forget that time is the most valuable thing we can spend, ONeal says, so don’t throw it away.
