The Lifestyle of Debt

The Lifestyle of Debt

What about a lifestyle of debt? Is a Christian to borrow? Is debt okay? Some would believe it is wrong for a Christian to have any debt.

Some will say it is all right to borrow for a house, but never borrow for anything that would depreciate. While I am not in that camp, I do believe that one of the greatest challenges and hindrances to reaching the world for Christ is that people who live in a society where there is the possibility of making significant amounts of money, all to often, spend their way into enormous debt.

In doing so, there is little left over above their tithing to give to their local church missions and evangelism projects. If you have to borrow, learn to give while borrowing.
