But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. Answer: Although the Bible does not address bankruptcy per se, we do have some principles that might apply and therefore help us make some judgments.

Biblical principle #1. We have the responsibility to keep our promises and pay what we owe. Ecclesiastes says, “When you make a vow to God, do not delay to pay it; For He has no pleasure. Verse Concepts You may charge interest to a foreigner, but to your countrymen you shall not charge interest, so that the Lord your God may bless you in all that you undertake in the land which you are about to enter to possess.

Proverbs Do not be among those who give pledges. Living a “full life,” for sure, is a promise that was spoken in the Bible by Jesus Himself (John ). But sometimes, as one tries to pursue a better life or a promising business, irreversible decisions (and sometimes financially unwise ones) are made and later lead to huge debts beyond a person’s capacity to pay given his earnings or lack of it.

The Bible shows us that Jesus well knew the lure of money and possessions because during His earthly ministry He actually spoke more on the subject of finances than on heaven and hell combined. Luke is an excellent passage on the attitude we should have toward our money and possessions and is well worth taking some time to prayerfully.

What Does the Bible Say About Declaring Bankruptcy. Although the Bible doesn’t directly address bankruptcy specifically, it does warn against not paying back debts.

While the Bible offers many warnings about the dangers of debt, it never says that you are out of God’s will or violating one of God’s commandments when you borrow. We can debate the wisdom of incurring debt under certain circumstances, but it’s never a black-and-white issue.

And Ecclesiastes says, “Better you should not vow, than vow and not pay.”. But both of these sentiments speak to someone who makes a promise and then willingly breaks it. As in the modern world, the Bible is clear that bad people make promises with no intention of keeping them.
