Credit Cards and The Rapture – 240 DSR

January 6, 2018

Do you take your debts with you when you die?

This show topic is inspired by a text from a listener and former student of Debt Shepherd. Brenda G. on the east coast of The US.
who asked, “Is there a metaphysical relationship between death and debt? Do we carry debt over into the next realm?”

1) Do we carry debt over into the afterlife? Karma. Do unresolved issues stay with us if/when we are reborn?

Is our thinking about money, abundance, etc formed after we get here? Or is it part of the part of us that isn’t physical, that we already were before our bodies showed up?

2) Credit Cards and The Rapture

Co-worker in mortgage business once said, “I’m not worried about paying off my credit cards. The rapture is near and when Jesus comes, I’m outta here.” That was about 10 yrs ago. I’m not sure he still has that outlook, but it’s interesting nonetheless.

As far as karma goes. What comes around goes around is a good adage in the here and now regardless of our thoughts, feelings, around the afterlife.

I don’t recommend an attitude toward debt of, “Screw it, when I die I don’t have to pay these debts/bills.” I say clean it up best you can while you’re here.

Ever treated an old, unpaid debt like death? You put it out of your mind for a while but it keeps coming back to bother you. You’re afraid the debt collector will come calling some day when least expected, kinda like the grim reaper?

Irony. Word Mortgage. Mort means death. MORTician, RigorMORTis. MORTgage. The word debt kinda sounds like death a bit. Think about it.
