Selling To The Weak

Forgetfulness. A gift of God bestowed upon debtors in compensation for their destitution of conscience. Author: Ambrose Bierce

'The Church of England has launched a campaign to advise people in debt. It includes a post-Christmas "debt check", with ten points which act as warning signs that people may be spending more than they can afford' - The BBC Website. The marketing phrase 'The lord Jesus Christ can help you consolidate all your debts into one easy monthly repayment' is surely just around the corner.It appears jesus died not only to pay for our sins but to help out with our new TV as well.

What a guy !

Surely it would be written: spend not that which belongs to thy neighbour.

Seriously though, getting into debt in the first place wouldn't be a Godly thing - it's about coveting stuff you can't honestly pay for and thats kinda stealing isn't it?
