What Does God Have to Say about the National Debt?

Does the fact that our nation is in debt more and more every day bother you? Does it bother you that the generations before us tried to make things better for the next generation but our generation is placing an insurmountable debt upon succeeding generations? Does it bother you that our generation has no intention of paying this debt? We may still have "In God We Trust" on our money but the truth is we are more in tune with "it's all about me" than with God.

The Bible says that the wicked borrow but do not repay. What would you say of our government and many others? It took a little over 200 years for us to learn that the best way for politicians to stay in office was to give away money without any repayment plan. That is pure wickedness according to the Bible.

Do you think that God is going to prosper a nation that acts wickedly? Do you think our previous prosperity as a nation had nothing to do with His blessing? What do you think will happen to us if we act wickedly? Do you think that we may go the way of other nations who are in such financial trouble? Do you think our standard of living will fall to their level?

You already know the answers to all these questions.

Psalm 37:21-22 (NIV)
The wicked borrow and do not repay, but the righteous give generously; those the Lord blesses will inherit the land, but those he curses will be cut off.
