I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God's word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world. --Testimonies, vol. 9, pp. 28, 29. {ChS 112.2}

Christians and Debt

I didn't write the following, but I thought it was worthy of passing along:
Did you know the 1910 edition of the Sears and Roebuck Mail Order Catalogue states that buying on credit is folly?

Most Christians then believed debt is a sin.

In fact, J.C. Penny, the man who owned J.C. Penny would not allow anyone credit. It wasn't until after his death that the new J.C. Penny management team allowed and encouraged people to buy on credit.

Consumer Credit Cards did not come into being until the 1960's. The end result is that the average credit card holder here in the U.S. today has $9,000 in outstanding debt.

Debt is so commonplace, our whole economy operates on debt. But is debt good or bad?

The Bible says those who borrow money are slaves to those who lend money.
Proverbs 22:7

And that is true!

If you owe $9,000 in Credit Card debt and pay only the minimum monthly payment, you will pay on that debt for the rest of your life. It will never be paid off.
