this is what the church is supposed to do; teach, inform and bring about change among the members of their congregations and then the community.

it was relatively easy as pastor of a large community church to accomplish this because pastor is already popular and garners a certain amount of respect and trust from people.

it time for the church to get involved in helping the community over come debt, getting them started in business ventures, getting them employed, setting up counseling centers for families and children, dealing with drugs and the violence that comes with it, addictions, apathy, education, etc.. etc..

Let's start first by eradicating the church.

You cannot eradicate consumer debt without eradicating the current bank culture of usury. Really the US economy would have to be completely changed since it is based on usury. Every Abrahamic religion forbids usury. Usury is loaning one amount, but requiring another amount to be paid later or in intervals. US home loans, car loan, and most other bank loans in the US are based on usury. The whole point of usury is to get rich by not doing anything, and to simultaneously empoverish the person who borrows. If you have usury, you will have excess consumer debt. That's what it is designed to do. Usury is forbidden by God.
Evil people call usury 'interest.' because in the beginning bankers were Christian but usually Jewish, and they knew the prohibition against usury; so they made up another word to get around usury, and so the word 'interest' was born. Usury, and interest are the exact same thing. Anyway, enough history.
This will not succeed. This church has been brainwashed into blaming the victims of usury. As mentioned earlier usury is designed to cause the borrower problems. So,ss long as usury exists, there will be a consumer debt problem. Get rid of usury, and you get rid of consumer debt.

correct.

but the point should be to limit as much debt by limiting credit cards we have and credit card purchases, need for new cars, using alternate forms of building capitol or funds other then borrowing from a bank, etc..

we can't totally get rid of "usury" on a personal level but we can limit its affect on our lives by limiting our urge to consume. and remember, the main focus and goal of the program instituted by this pastor and church is to teach people how to pay of debt and keep from creating more unneccessary debt.
