BANKRUPT! Is It Possible for Christians to Go Through This?

It’s difficult for us to imagine that if we “do all the right things” and live “right” that we could ever end up going into financial bankruptcy. After all, the Bible says that God will provide all of our needs. Doesn’t that mean that He will save us from what appears to be financial disaster?

That’s what most Followers of Christ believe. Things like this just can’t happen to Christians! But it does. And when it does, that’s when you’re faced up against a barrier of belief.

Are you going to hang onto your faith that God still loves you and hasn’t abandoned you? Are you going to still going to stay in close relationship with God or are you going to allow yourself to move your heart away from Him so you are not only bankrupt financially, but also spiritually bankrupt as well? It’s something to think about.

Below, we are providing a link to an article which was formerly featured in the publication, Marriage Partnership Magazine, which tells the true story of Tim and Melinda who thought they had done everything right and yet they still ended up in bankruptcy court. You can read of their painful journey and then what eventually happened in their lives afterward through the linked web site article:
