What does the Bible say about paying debts?

Is owing money a sin?
The truth is, there are many christians right now that are so focused on paying off their debts (both bad and good debt) that they are losing productive years and will not have enough money to retire. From what I can tell however, is that having debt is not considered a sin.

In Matthew 22:15-22, the Pharisees ask Jesus a tough question: “Tell us … is it against our law to pay taxes to the Roman Emperor or not?” Jesus responds, “Why are you trying to trap me?
What does the Bible say about debt and tithing?
“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7, NIV). I won’t be mad at you for not tithing because Jesus certainly was not. But I encourage you to continue doing it even as you dig your way out of debt.

What does the Bible say about tattoos?
The verse in the Bible that most Christians make reference to is Leviticus 19:28, which says,”You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord.” So, why is this verse in the Bible?
What does the Bible say about giving money to family?
It says that we should be giving in both time and money. It says we should be generous and willing to give anything we can– if we don’t have money, we should serve.
Is it a sin to not pay tax?
In the case of the government (the common good), the amount one individual contributes in tax money is a drop in the bucket. The government has plenty. But that drop in the government’s bucket might be huge to the individual filing taxes. In this, there’s no evidence that tax evasion is a mortal sin.
What did Jesus mean when he said give to Caesar what is Caesar’s?
When the Jews produce a denarius at Jesus‘ request, they demonstrate that they are already doing business with Caesar on Caesar’s terms. I read Jesus‘ statement, “Give to Caesar…” as meaning “Have you incurred a debt in regard to Caesar! Then you better pay it off.” The Jews had already compromised themselves.
What did Jesus mean by Render unto Caesar?
INTRODUCTION. Christians have traditionally interpreted the famous passage “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God, the things that are God’s,” to mean that Jesus endorsed paying taxes.
Is it OK to stop tithing to pay off debt?
Though some surely disagree, I think that a calculated decision to stop tithing (or any charitable giving, religiously encouraged or otherwise) in order to escape credit-card debt is perfectly acceptable and possibly even recommended, as long as you follow a few basic guidelines: First, have a plan with a clear
Can you go to heaven if you don’t tithe?
Yes, you can go to heaven without tithing. Tithing is an Old Covenant command that was eliminated when Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave. Nowhere in the New Testament or New Covenant are believers commanded to tithe or give a tenth of their income to the church.
Is tithing 10 of gross or net?
It says to tithe on your net increase. If you think about an agrarian culture where that was written, if you had a flock of sheep and one was killed by a wolf but you had 11 new lambs, then you had an increase of 10. You would tithe on that. You can make a really good case for it biblically either way.
