Our materialistic outlook towards life ensnares us into the fathomless pit of debt. It is the imbalance created when our 'wants' out weigh our basic 'needs' and we as mere mortals fall into this trap. This book looks at this issue and offers time tested Biblical principles to free ourselves from this scourge. More
Debt is an area in which many of us violate God’s clear instructions in the scriptures and find ourselves in financial bondage either through ignorance of the Bible’s teaching or willful disobedience because we are caught up in the ‘ if only syndrome’. We fail to realize that debt or borrowing is like a maze or quick sand! The more we get entangled in it, the more we get lost and sucked in deeper with no solution in sight. There comes a time when we begin to avoid the persons from whom we borrowed money, souring relationships or telling one lie after another just to cover up other lies. Debts not only affect the person who has borrowed but also his family. This is why we must understand the reasons, why the scriptures say that debt is wrong.
