No Susan, I hardly ever use the word sin. You brought it up!
Today's' news have stories of financial institutions that have caused ordinary people to lose everything, by giving them loans they could not repay. That some people are not more careful with their money is besides the point. Not everybody have common sense, and can therefore be taken advantage of.

Would I call these financiers sinners? Not really, I have much more salty words for them!

But I believe Jesus put money lenders and sinners in the same box!
