Student Loan Forgiveness and the Bible | Guest: Dr. David W. Jones

Episode #109
August 31, 2022

President Biden announced his student loan forgiveness plan, and many people have an opinion on the decision. On this episode, Art and Taylor talk with Dr. David Jones, a biblical financial ethicist, about how to view the government’s recent announcement through the lens of Scripture. 

Questions Answered:

  1. The Bible says, “the wicked borrows but does not pay back.” (Psalm 37:21) Did our government just force Americans to sin?
  2. Since Christians have been forgiven of their “debts,” shouldn’t they be the biggest fans of student loan forgiveness? What about the Year of Jubilee?
  3. Is it biblical unethical for a person to accept loan forgiveness?
