Deuteronomy 15 states that 'at the end of every seven years you must cancel debts'. So, Christians must support cancelling student debt?

    Since we are not ancient Israel, no.

    Promoting personal irresponsibility is not something Christians do regardless of what the ancient Israelites were directed to do.  

    My i suggest you read the Scriptures in context and or give up on your personalized interpretation.

    That, and all of the 613 "You must" and "you must not" went the way of Hebrews 8:13.  We would rather cancel the students rather than their debt, with all of the BA degrees in Anthropology.

    Student debt is an abomination and a drag on a nation's progress. There are far to many dim thickos in the USA already (Trump voters in general) without further discouraging people from getting a decent education!

    So only Christian & Jewish student loans should be cancelled, right? 

    Everybody else pays their debts or gets a bad credit rating & a prison term. 

    Seriously, I would be in favor of something like the GI Bill, only you exchange time in government service for student debt payments. 

    Military, National Guard, Peace Corps, VISTA, etc should all count for the program. 

    Of course, the service must be honorable to qualify.  No malingering nor criminal activity during the term of service.

    Christians don't follow the Bible.  You know that.

    Aren't the leftists who racked up the debts atheists?  Request to cancel freeloading snowflakes student loans is denied.
