Usury is Theft, using Debt owed as an Excuse

A man in Baltimore was sued over old debt and blocked from suing back. This stirred up a sense of disgust among people, even unsaved earthly people. There was a sense of moral repugnance. Why? 

This is because people know deep down inside from their moral conscience that it is wrong for a lender to take money from a debtor in excess of the loan, that is, wrong to charge interest on a loan. 

The man in Baltimore was sued over old debt, which is to take money in excess of the loan, that is, charging interest on it. It is to make one's own selfish gain off the debt slavery of others. 

That is exactly what the heart of usury is, to steal from others, by using debt as an excuse.  It is to take increase on the loan.

Usury is theft. There are no exceptions and no excuses to charge usury whatsoever. 

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).
