National evangelical leaders and local experts will discuss what the Bible says about usury — lending money at high rates to vulnerable people — and how this teaching applies today. Learn about the practices of payday lenders across the country and in Colorado specifically.
We will look at how predatory lending relates to the Bible’s larger views on poverty and God’s heart for this issue, then consider how Christians can address the problem. On November 6, Coloradans will have the opportunity to cast a vote on Proposition 111, which would lower the annual interest rate payday lenders are able to charge from 215 percent to 36 percent. A panel discussion will wrestle with historic and contemporary approaches to addressing this issue.
