Sharing this old blog post from Fred Clark for no reason in particular today:

“Jubilee Always Makes Some People Angry”


“Despite the devastating mockery of this attitude in Jonah and all the parables, it’s still ever-present and perniciously popular. That’s partly because it’s a spiritual disease that serves the interests of the very wealthy. They’ve fed and nurtured this sickness for so long that the ‘morality’ of debt is now a complete perversion and inversion of what the Hebrew scriptures and the New Testament Jesus (Mr. ‘I am Jubilee in the flesh’ himself) had to say about it.”
