Student Loan Forgiveness is not Biblical Forgiveness
After four months I finally did it! A new episode of Truthspresso Express!
While driving to work on Thursday morning I outline some thoughts on President Biden’s announcement of a program to “forgive” some student loan debts.
When we clear away the politics and emotions, we see the problems with schemes like this. Particularly, the ideology of so-called student loan “forgiveness” is:
- Moral hazard
I also address an article I read that tries to claim student loan “forgiveness” is a Christian idea. The article raises Deuteronomy 15, which I argue cannot possibly qualify.
