My dad is a man in the Word. If I need to know something about a certain passage, I always ask him. My dad is also a man of few words – unlike his daughter. I can sometimes get pretty riled up when people describe debt as a “tool” when the Bible clearly speaks against that – in both the Old and New Testament. Does my dad get riled up? Nope. He just looks at me and says “Stacy, if someone wants to misbehave, they’re going to do it. And no amount of you quoting scriptures is going to change that.” I wish I were more like my dad. However, I can’t stand idly by while people continue to believe lies about debt: “I have to live this way”, “I have to have a car payment”, “you can’t buy a home without getting a mortgage”, “I have to have a credit card for emergencies”. No…that’s a lie you’ve been led to believe by society – but God can set you free from that bondage if you’ll listen to what He says.
If you’d like to read by post about what the Bible says about debt, hop on over to Modern Alternative Mama. I’ll give you some specific scriptures and let you know exactly how God feels about debt. Debt is NOT a tool. Don’t believe that lie.
Let me warn you – I’m opinionated…if you’re cool with debt, you won’t want to read my post. It will just make you really mad. 😉
