The Oppression of Debtors by Creditors who Pervert and Twist the meaning of Debt and Credit

Debt is not only that which keeps people in bondage. Indeed, it is a tool of oppression. Oppression is that which is unrighteous and unjust:

Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man [or oppressor in some translations] (Psalm 71:4).

I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors (Psalm 119:121).

It is not mere "inequality" or unfairness, that which people love to complain about out of their own envy, as people in the modern world love to claim out of their vile, evil, unrighteousness which has made them deluded and of an unsound mind. Those who do not fear God but fear anything else, whether it be fearing people, fearing lack, or fearing security will have a spirit of fear and an unsound mind. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). 

He who has money can control others, not merely by his power of give money, but to claim that his debts are that of others. Since what he owes can only be repaid by him by means of his giving of money, he controls those who he owes money to. He is their master.

Those who love money, whether it be manifesting in the pursuit of riches, or mere anxiety for basic earthly needs, will fall into the trap. He is become their master by means of being he who can give people what they are seeking. Anyone who is anxious for even their basic earthly needs, such as food and water will be slave to him, for that itself is to love money, which leads to fear of those who have money. 

By their love of money, they make him powerful over them. Debt is the trap he sets up to make them pay what he owes to others so that he can give them what they want - not just money per se, but anything which money can buy. This includes the basics such as food, water, shelter and clothing. 

This love of money by borrowers, legitimises his oppression by debt, claiming that because they borrowed the money, they must repay him, and that for him to give them what they want, they must pay the debts he owes, not what they owe. This is exactly what usury on the global scale is. The borrower, is exploited, spiritually and morally, by creditors claiming that for them to lend money, they must receive a gain so as to provide for the debtors. The debtors must pay for it so that creditors can feed them their credit. Such is the vile, abominable perversion of the modern global financial system.

The Word of God which is far wiser than any human being has already said: "Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him" (Ezekiel 18:13). Usury is an abomination. It is a perversion of all righteousness and justice. It is a vile, abominable, despicable, disgusting, evil, wicked, loathsome, iniquitous thing.

The love of mammon is that which drives the whole global financial system of debt. It is the love of mammon by both the poor and rich, and the succumbing to mammon by the Christians that drives the whole global financial system of debt.
