Billions for Bankers–Debts for the People
by Pastor Sheldon Emry
“The love of money is the root of all evil.” (1 Tim. 6:10) “If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.” Exodus 22:25
“Take no usury of him, or increase…thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury.” Leviticus 25:36-67
“Unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: That the Lord thy God may bless thee.” Deuteronomy 23:20
In the early Church, any interest on debt was considered usury.
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” — Thomas Jefferson
