Welcoming 2007 with Change

Wow, I'm scared. It's barely 2007, and I just switched to the new blogger. I hope this works!

Happy New Year!

I have lots of questions on which I'd like feedback. We'll start with two.

What do you think of arranged marriages?

If you were to have extra money, would it be right to invest in a bank which performs loans, or to loan money yourself? How much are you responsible to discourage others from going into debt?

To God be all glory.

I think arraned marriages are unbiblical, disgusting, and downright immoral.

There's my passionate opinion. ;-D

I prefer parental approval and input especially prayer.

Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.
Romans 13:8

If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.
Romans 12:18

I think these two verses cover our responsibility with debt. We can't control other people's actions,nor should we want to. When i find I do want to control others it is often a warning of pride lurking in me. Sometimes though my desire to control comes from fear of being hurt

Good quote. I see how 1 Cor 8:13
might be applicable to banks if you really believe your own refusal
to put money in a bank would cause others not to go into debt through loans from that same bank.
