What does God tell us about debt?

15 posts in this topic

I know the Bible says that the borrower is slave to the lender but what else does it say about debt? What are some verses?

Then, you already have your answer. Discuss and not teach by leading questions.

I have noticed that you have a tendency of choosing certain legalistic subjects and start asking questions about them.  Since you know how to use BibleGateway, then you already know where to find scripture that answers your question.  By asking a question you already know the answer to, you are leading a conversation in a certain direction by asking others to provide information you already know.  That is not really a discussion, but a form of teaching.

If I already knew the answer to them, I wouldn't be asking them. All of the answers I need are not in the BibleGateway.com search. You'd be amazed at how much needed information I have gotten by asking these questions on here.

Pat Robertson was asked this question, and he said in the OT God told ancient Israel that all debts should be cancelled every 7 years. I didn't try to find that myself, but it sounds familiar.

 

Isn't it also a US law that you can try and file bankruptcy every 7 years, but not sooner? That doesn't mean the judge has to allow you to get the bankruptcy every 7 years. I'm just thinking maybe ancient Israel did clear all debts every 7 years and that's why US law uses the 7 year rule.

The question is what does the bible say about debt? I am not sure to tell the truth. But that is not to say that I am without understanding concerning Gods will for me as related to debt. God does not desire for me to be in debt to anyone other than Him.

I have debt due to the enormous amount of sin that ruled my life over the initial years before beginning my journey with Christ as well as continued sin in my life after my conversion.

As I have been being changed by God my sin has reduced and my wealth increased. As a direct result my debt has been decreased.

I suspect that one day I will be debt free except for the debt unto God that I can never repay in full.
