INTEREST IN THE FINANCIAL WORLD
There has been a constant conversation, and arguments that had the financial institutions not sold properties to people who could not afford houses, we would not have had a mortgage crisis. But has anyone ever thought, for a moment, if we did not have to pay interest, we could actually been out of debt completely and quicker, which would enable us to help others? There certainly would be no room for defaults and bankruptcies.
“I have been clear about the use of interest in the financial realm,” the Lord said. [“The world was never permitted] to charge My people interest,” The Lord continued (Deuteronomy 23:19). “I have allowed [businesses] to charge interest to foreigners [and that is one way they would have been able to have increase and income] the Lord said (Deuteronomy 23:20). “And you must certainly not charge My people who are poor any interest,” He said (Exodus 22:25).
