(Matthew 6:19) "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.
In my first forty years being a Catholic, and a teaching adult information classes for a number of years, never once did I ever have anyone say it was wrong to have a savings account, or a retirement plan. No one mentioned that interest/usury was an evil.
The Catholic Church owns a bank where it stores up treasures.
(Matthew 23:8-9) "You, however must not allow yourselves to be called Rabbi, since you have only one Master, and you are all brothers. You must call no one on earth your father, since you have only one Father, and he is in heaven."
Jesus personally told me that it is dangerous to call another man hear on earth father, and it is dangerous to call another man father.
(Matthew 5:39) "You have learnt how it was said: 'Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.' But I say this to you: offer the wicked man no resistance."
Again Jesus personally told me that we were not to hurt/harm anyone for any reason. The Church allows men to fight in a just war. You should know that the Church before Constantine the Great corrupted the Church that a Christian was a pacifist.
(Luke 6: 34-35) "And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners,' expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back."
(Luke 12:33) "Sell your possessions and give alms. Get yourselves purses that do not wear out, treasure that will not fail you, in Heaven where no thief can reach it and no moth destroy it. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
This is again tied up with storing up for one’s future, and emphasizes the fact that who one lend something to someone there is no interest charged. The church does not teach this. The church teaching has changed to say excessive interest, and that is nothing but water down excuse to allow for people to charge interest. This again was not allowed in the early Church.
Jesus told us not to have possessions.
(Luke 14:33) "So in the same way, none of you can be my disciple unless he gives up all his possessions."
(1 John 3: 5 - 6) " Now you know that He appeared in order to abolish sin, and that in Him there is no sin; anyone who lives in God does not sin, and anyone who sins has never seen Him or known Him."
(1 John 3:9) "No one, who has been begotten by God sins; because God's seed remains inside him, he cannot sin when he has been begotten by God."
(1 John 3:8) "He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work"
(1 John 5:18) " We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him"
A Christian is dead to sin. The Catholic Churches teachings have watered down the study of sin, hamartiology; to a point that all one needs to do is say they are sorry. A serious sin may need to be confessed to a priest. The Early Christian would never have dreamed of ever needing to confess a sin after the first time.
(Hebrews 10:26-31) "If, after we have been given knowledge of the truth, we should deliberately commit any sins, then there is no longer any sacrifice for them. There is left only the dreadful prospect of judgment and of the fiery wrath that is to devour your enemies.
Nowhere in Hebrews does it say apostasy, it says “deliberately commit any sins
