Do Christians Against Poverty (founded in 1996) - not to be confused with Church Action on Poverty (founded in 1982) - still receive money from extortionate credit lenders Provident Financial, also based in Bradford? This surely is a discussion starter for debates about the value of money? Would you take money from anyone if you could put it to a good cause? Just for reflection: "shining example".

In 2003 accountant Richard Murphy produced this analysis of Provident Financial, which demonstrates the need for legal caps on the cost of credit:

Proverbs 28:8 "Income from charging high interest rates will end up in the pocket of someone who is kind to the poor."

I am a terminally ill sole trader struggling to make ends meet, I done work for a person, under duress as I was sick, and despite having written off any money owed for my actual time and only wanting the money I am out of pocket for I am having this person threaten me with 'Christians Against Poverty' telling me that she will not pay more than £1 per week if I do not 'back off'. I have been waiting for the money I am owed for almost a year now. Please explain what is so Christian about this?
