Subject:RE: [socialcredit] Regarding "interest" and "usury"
Date:Thursday, January 17, 2008  08:49:51 (+0000)
From:John G Rawson <johngrawson @.......com>
In reply to:Message 5205 (written by Myro Ashenopolitus)

Thanks Myro, for your first point.  I have been trying to get it over also.
However, if you take the Douglas analysis as a scientific model and test it scientifically against fact, it soon becomes obvious that it is by far the best explanantion for perceived economic facts and problems. For example the ledar lack of worldwide prosoerith last century except in times of war, preparation for it or recovery from it.
The answer seems clear.  Banks also reinvest and pass repayments to reserves. There is a deficiency in purchasing power unless very active new borrowing continues. There is a tendency towards a "gap", but it is by no means as big as many social Crediters project.
Regards.  
John R.

>
> Now, to Yaseen's assertion:
>
> The ancient scriptures originally written in Semitic

> A modern Islamic scholar in the United States writes

>
> "The Quran forbids usury, not interest. Quite a few
> states in USA have laws against usury. Usury is
> defined as excessive interest. A Dictionary defines
> usury as 'an excessive or inordinate premium for the
> use of money borrowed', 'extortionate interest', or
> 'the practice of taking exorbitant or excessive
> interest.' The Arabic language also makes distinction
> between interest (Fa'eda) and usury (Reba). The Quran
> forbids Reba or usury."
>
> Which is perfectly consistent with the modern Jewish
> and Christian perspectives on the matter:
>
> http://eh.net/encyclopedia/article/jones.usury
>
> "John Calvin's letter on usury of 1545 made it clear
> that when Christ said 'lend hoping for nothing in
> return,' He meant that we should help the poor freely.
> Following the rule of equity, we should judge people
> by their circumstances, not by legal definitions.
> Humanist that he was, Calvin knew there were two
> Hebrew words translated as 'usury.' One, neshek, meant
> 'to bite'; the other, tarbit, meant 'to take
> legitimate increase.' Based on these distinctions,
> Calvin argued that only 'biting' loans were forbidden.
> Thus, one could lend at interest to business people
> who would make a profit using the money. To the
> working poor one could lend without interest, but
> expect the loan to be repaid. To the impoverished one
