The Heart of a Debtor lies with Mammon

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon (Matthew 6:24).

The heart of a debtor, no matter how rich or poor, employed or unemployed, well-fed or hungry, healthy or sick is this: one which does not trust God, and is seeking its own way in getting what it wants. The issue is not what the person is trying to buy by means of debt. The issue is where his heart lies. His heart lies in money, rather than God. He trusts in debt and bank more than God. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Matthew 6:21).

Such are many in the modern Church whose personal debt is equal to that of the unsaved, and yet think it is acceptable to God to be in debt. They make the absolutely vile, abominable, disgusting blasphemous claim that God wills them to be rich, or that He rewards them with all material things they have, because He owes them such things in return for serving Him. This is the justification given for debt.

To repay debt is itself to serve mammon for one have a moral obligation to work for the money itself. Jesus said that no one can serve both God and money. A person will either love God and hate money, or love money, and therefore, hate God because he loves money (Matthew 6:24). 

Working for money is itself to love money, and thus hate God. Working for God, for which He will provide with money is to love God, and hate money
