    Is Borrowing from Payday Loans a Sin according to the church?

    When was the last time you borrowed money? Were you convicted when you asked to borrow money from these corporate companies? I mean, the Bible does say that we are lenders not borrowers, but does that disqualify us to borrow when needed? Well, some Christians in 30 states from Alabama to Wyoming say it’s a sin to lend money to someone who can’t afford to pay it back. Most want the government to protect consumers from loans with excessive interest, although one in six Christians has taken out such a loan.

    The Holy Bible: Top Most Challenged Book, Reports Say

    Last year, the American Library Association (ALA) fielded 275 formal challenges to materials in schools and libraries. Making the top 10 list of challenges for the first time: the Bible. The reason: “religious viewpoint”. The ideological grounds for the religious book’s appearance on the 2015 Most Challenged List likely doesn’t tell the whole story, says James LaRue, who directs the ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF).

    I want to thank those that responded to the post titled ONE WORLD MUSIC. There were many that agreed with what was written, while there were others that didn’t. That’s fine. I don’t claim to know it all, but I do know one thing for certain… GOD HAS A POSITION! God does have a side! So there has to be a right side, AND a wrong side to be on.
