Personally, I had always avoided debt and kept within my salary, though at times only by very careful economy.  Now there was no difficulty in doing this, for my income was larger, and the country being in a more peaceful state, things were not so dear.  But the society itself was in debt.  The quarterly bills which I and others were instructed to draw were often met with borrowed money, and a correspondence commenced which terminated the following year by my resigning from conscientious motives.  To me it seemed that the teaching of God’s Word was unmistakable clear: Owe no man any thing.  To borrow money implied, to my mind, a contradiction of Scripture – a confession that God had withheld some good thing and a determination to get for ourselves what He had not given.  Could that which was wrong for one Christian to do be right for an association of Christians?  Or could any amount of precedents make a wrong course justifiable?  If the Word taught me anything, it taught me to have no connection with debt.  I could not think that God was poor, that He was short of resources, or unwilling to supply any want of whatever work was really His.  It seemed to me that if there were lack of funds to carry on work, then to that degree, in that special development, or at that time, it could not be the work of God.  – Hudson Taylor
