Student Loan Forgiveness With Jerry Bowyer

Today on Faith and Finance, we are joined by Jerry Bowyer, a columnist with WORLD Opinions and the author of The Maker Versus the Takers: What Jesus Really Said About Social Justice and Economics. We will be discussing the Biden administration's proposal to forgive hundreds of billions of dollars in student debt and its potential implications. Jerry argues that this plan is not only constitutionally questionable, but it would also further fuel inflation. He also provides insight into how this relates to Deuteronomy 15:1 and other Scripture references. We will also be answering listener questions about zero-balance credit card accounts, Social Security benefits for divorced persons, and charitable donation annuities. Join us to learn more about student loan forgiveness and its implications.

Being financially faithful in the modern world can be difficult, but it is possible. Start by carving out time for prayer and asking God for wisdom in managing your money. Then, create a budget with the help of the FaithFi app and trim your expenses. Look for ways to increase your income if necessary. Once your budget is balanced, save up an emergency fund and pay down debt. Finally, be generous and trust that God will provide. On this program, Rob also answers listener questions about taking money out of a TSP, buying a home, and preserving wealth for an elderly parent.

He suggests budgeting, reining in spending, putting an emergency fund in place, and minimizing debt. He also emphasizes the importance of prayer, scripture, and leaning on the Body of Christ in a time of recession.

Despite the current economic slowdown and inflation, there are still millions of open jobs going unfilled. Companies are resorting to something called quiet hiring, which involves shifting employees from other roles to meet certain needs. This can be beneficial for workers, as it can offer them a chance for promotions and raises, but it can also have a detrimental effect on morale. The Bible offers advice on how to approach this situation, encouraging workers to cheerfully take on new roles, and to use the opportunity to ask about their future with the company. Rob also answers listener questions on today's program.
