Theology on Tap will be back in Person on Friday, please email Drew or the church office to get the meeting location.
This week we’ll be talking about one of most significant sins in Scripture that is almost never spoken of on Sunday: Usury
For Just the Scriptures: Read Exodus 22:24-27, Leviticus 25:35-38, Deuteronomy 23:19-20. (Bonus points for reading Leviticus 25:13-34 that cover the Jubilee system, which is deeply related)
For a Basic Understanding: Read Drew’s brief 2-page summary of Church Teachings on Usury.
For a Detailed Exploration : The Presbyterian Church wrote a thorough and clear policy statement, “A Reformed Understanding of Usury for the 21st Century” It is a thorough and concise articulation of the theological issues around usury in the modern era, and it’s about 21 pages.
See Y’all Friday!
