So we read this Psalm this morning, and this verse stuck out. who does not put out his money at interest and does not take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved. Psalms 15:5 I read some commentaries but I'm not really satisfied. It seems that they basically try to say that making money off the poor for their own gain is wrong, not charging interest in itself. But that's what charging interest is in general, because those who are in need have to borrow and don't have the money on their own. So it seems that there is always the richer making money off the poorer when interest is involved. My in-laws offered to help us with a nice down payment for a house, so we wouldn't get stuck with mortgage insurance. They said we wouldn't have to pay them back interest, just the money of the loan. To me this is honorable. On the other hand, you have members in churches who lend money to the church so they can buy their own building, and they expect to be paid back in full and charge 4.5 percent interest. I don't really understand this to be honest.
