Why does our government borrow so much money when doing that is directly opposed to God’s principles?
For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee. — Deuteronomy 15:6 (KJV)
This was God’s instructions to the nation Israel regarding national debt. It is a principle that any government would be wise to follow. As you can see, nations that don’t borrow reign over other nations. Nations that borrow are reigned over by the lender nations. What kind of nation is the United States? We are the borrowing kind. That does not bode well for our future as a sovereign nation.
“I place economy among the first and most important republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.” — Thomas Jefferson, third US president, architect and author (1743-1826)
