Chapter 6 - Forgiveness
This chapter looks at a subject closely related to last month's "Commerce and Banking" installment: Forgiveness. While Christianity's general philosophy lies on this bedrock principle, to see forgiveness in an economic context is intriguing. Modern bankruptcy law institutionalizes forgiveness of loans for instance, as does the practice of forgiving the loans of nations, forgiveness of credit card loans, etc.
Trump himself has benefited greatly from such practices going way back, including the forgiveness of his $500,000,000 to the bondholders of his Atlantic City casino in the 1980's. He has even bragged about his numerous bankruptcies and their qualifying nature for his presidency. That's what this series tries to do; to see Trump in light of the economic lessons of the Gospels.
On a more personal level, Trump has famously stated that he doesn't think he has asked God for forgiveness though he is a Presbyterian and practices holy communion.
