God’s Truth About God's Finances                       30 October 2017

“Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:

When thou shalt vow a vow unto the Lord thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the Lord thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee.

That which is gone out of thy lips thou shalt keep and perform; even a freewill offering, according as thou hast vowed unto the Lord thy God, which thou hast promised with thy mouth.”

Deuteronomy 23:19, 21, 23 KJV


We are not supposed to lend borrowed money. In other words, we cannot pay a loan with money that we have borrowed. This is true if you try to pay a credit card with another credit card. It is against the law and against financial principles. The only way to pay borrowed money is to work for it: to create something and sell it, or get paid by serving someone. Currently, these two options are the only methods that exist to pay a debt, with the exception of a gift: as when someone freely gives you money to pay your debt. Of course, you could always trade something of value for the cost of a debt. But still, you would have worked, created or served someone to first obtain it. The fact is, that any other method of repayment is considered theft and is cursed. For this reason, sin debt is such that can only be paid with death and the shedding of blood. You may work, create or serve in order to pay any other debt but not sin debt. God is the One that requires that we pay sin debt with the blood of Christ Jesus, His Son, Who died to pay our sin debt in full on the cross, on our behalf. When we think about the price of sin debt, many people fail to understand the concept. To understand it we must go back to the beginning, when Adam and Eve first conceived sin. God cursed Adam and Eve as a result of their lack of faith, and they died a spiritual death and a physical death, though they were created to live eternally. The first account of the shedding of blood was when Adam and Eve had shame of their nakedness before God, though they had no conscience of nakedness before they sinned but only after. So God killed an animal in the Garden of Eden to cover their nakedness with its skin. From that moment on, sin debt was paid with the shedding of blood and by death. For this reason, because of conscience, we have sin, death, violence and suffering in the world which we live today. To prove this, just try to think of anything that we eat for food, that was not at one point alive. Life requires the death of another living being, to continue living. For this reason, the scriptures teach that it is no longer we who live, but it is Christ living in us. The life that we live is the very life of Christ, Who died and gave Himself up for us. The life we live, we live by faith in the Son of God.
