I have recently come across some writings that call into biblical question the whole framework of modern economics (re: interest-generating loans without which our current socio-economic structure could not exist). By way of example, this post, What Love Is This? A Renunciation of the Economics of Calvinism lays the problem of usury, interest, and the Church’s complicity in defying the clear commands of God and the position of the Church for 1600 years at the feet of Calvin.
Have any of my reformed brothers and sisters investigated this issue. The above posting seems to demonstrate that Calvin, for economic and societal reasons, apparently stepped around sola scriptura in this matter. What say my learned brethren? I am only beginning to dip into this deep pool, but I am very disturbed by what I have found so far. Anyone care to help?
