Debt is of the spirit of Manipulation

Debt does not only have a power of bondage behind it. It has the power of manipulation behind it. It is not that debt can be used to manipulated others. Rather, this is a mere manifestation of the power of manipulation behind debt.  Debt has a power of manipulation behind it which operates by the game of debt played among the unsaved. 

The rich of the world love debt because they know it makes people not merely dependent on them, but controlled by them. They can and do use debt for their own gains. The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender (Proverbs 22:7). The poor of the world also love debt because it enables them to get what they need. It enables them to act independently of God, not trusting in Him who all the world hate. Such is the game of debt. It is of the spirit of manipulation. 

Debt is a tool of the rich people of the world to makes gains of the debt slavery of others. Debt is a liberator to the poor of the world because it enables them to get what they seek, which is all done out of their own selfishness, for the world lives for itself (2 Corinthians 5:15). 

As long as people want to use debt for their own self-seeking ways, debt will always put them in bondage and manipulation. Such are the ways of this wicked world. 

That people go into debt is itself an indicator that one is not content with what one has, whether they get into debt for luxury goods, or basic foods. This is because the heart of a debtor is one that trusts not God, but in money, rather unsaved or saved, rich or poor.

The Christian of all people should not get into debt for God will literally provide all you need if you seek His will (Matthew 6:33).

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee (Hebrews 13:5).
