What Does Filing Bankruptcy and Easter Have in Common?

April 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 131

After celebrating Easter it dawned on me the similarities of filing bankruptcy and Easter. Many people avoid filing bankruptcy because they feel guilty and believe that it's sinful to not pay one's debts back. When considering what Easter means, the words came to mind hope, forgiveness, freedom because Christ died on the cross to forgive us for our sins and to pay our debt for all we have done. When a person enters into a bankruptcy filing they feel guilty, broken and a slave to debt, filing bankruptcy was created to give a fresh start and give forgiveness of one's debts. For some individuals, not having the ability to use a bankruptcy filing to eliminate their debt would keep them enslaved for the rest of their lives. Filing bankruptcy was created to give good hard working people a second chance and a fresh start. I believe Congress had the same ideas as our country was founded on biblical principles.

The history of the Passover began when God removed the Israelites from slavery. The Israelites were enslaved in Egypt until Moses asked the Pharaoh to free them from slavery. After this time, the Passover was created to celebrate Moses leading his people to freedom from slavery. The Passover is time for the Jews to reflect and seek a renewal of life and a reaffirmation of freedom. This is very similar to what one receives from filing bankruptcy. By filing for bankruptcy an individual gets freed from their debts and gets a new chance to not make the same mistakes and put the past behind them being debt free. Bankruptcy and Passover have a thin line that runs between them. Being enslaved to debt and slavery is a dark theme that runs with filing bankruptcy and Passover. And at the opposite end of the spectrum there is light from hope, forgiveness and a resurrected life.

When debt overwhelms someone, they can be put in bondage to that debt. The stress that comes with debt slavery can cause physical and mental illness that puts a person in despair. Filing bankruptcy will remove the burden of that extreme financial trouble giving the individual hope and freedom from debt. A bankruptcy filing will allow an individual to be forgiven and released from their past mistakes allowing them to be free and have a fresh start. When someone is facing this kind of difficulty they should consult a bankruptcy lawyer to see if filing personal bankruptcy is an option for them. A bankruptcy lawyer will offer some options and hopefully encourage the individual that is struggling.

Holidays like Easter are a time to reflect on our past mistakes and look to the future. Easter represents how Jesus paid the ultimate price by dying on the cross to save us from our sins. As you celebrate the Easter season don't let the burden of debt enslave you to the point of losing hope.
