Banks Conspire Against Biblical Law

This is a conspiracy that appears to be brought upon by zealous competition. A group of people at a bank at some point made the decision to loan money beyond what was Biblically written:

"At the end of every seven years you must cancel debts." - Deuteronomy 15:1

If this is the case, I don't know of any bank that would make more than a six year loan (leaving one year to recover on late or default).

Repossession and foreclosure also sound out of the question:

"When you make a loan of any kind to your neighbor, do not go into his house to get what he is offering as a pledge. Stay outside and let the man to whom you are making the loan bring the pledge out to you. If the man is poor, do not go to sleep with his pledge in your possession. Return his cloak to him by sunset so that he may sleep in it. Then he will thank you, and it will be regarded as a righteous act in the sight of the LORD your God." - Deuteronomy 24:9-13

0% Interest to those in need:

"'If one of your countrymen becomes poor and is unable to support himself among you, help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you. Do not take interest of any kind from him, but fear your God, so that your countryman may continue to live among you. You must not lend him money at interest or sell him food at a profit." - Leviticus 25:35

Payment should be made daily instead of gaining interest on a worker's labor/wages:

"Pay him his wages each day before sunset, because he is poor and is counting on it. Otherwise he may cry to the LORD against you, and you will be guilty of sin." - Deuteronomy 24:15

Christ says this about credit:

"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." - Luke 6:34

"But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked." - Luke 6:35
