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 not recognised by many people, including many of the modern western Church to be immoral. Despite what the Bible says about usury numerous times, time and time again, many in the modern western Church think that there is nothing wrong with it. They vehemently deny that it is evil, denying what the Word of God says about usury. Rather, they, like the world, think that it is an outdated issue, relevant to only Old Testament Israel, and perhaps the Medieval Era of Christendom. That makes it all the more disturbing - for genuine Christians to think that usury is not even an issue, when the true Christian really should be the most vehement fighter of usury.
