    Re: Healthcare question for Christians

    Thanks to the OP for an interesting thread.

    Cain asked, "Am I my brotherís keeper?" (Gen. 4:9). Was Jesus Christ His brotherís keeper? Did Jesus take care of His brothers who were in need of clothes, food or shelter? Did He come to the aid of widows in distress? Was He a father to the orphan? Did He give to the poor (John 13:29)? Yes! Jesus was His brotherís keeper.

    15. Am I my brother's keeper?

    Obviously Jesus would give to the sick, nor would he be happy with anyone not giving to the sick.
    Would he thus support taxation to this end? Even if this impeded freedom? Absolutely.
    Jesus was not an advocate of freedom to do as thou wilt, but to do as God wants for his children, the practice of love.

    Taxation by the government to give not to the sick rich who don't need it but to the sick poor who do is a perfect example of the love that Jesus preached - even if this impedes your freedom to spend that extra dollar how you wished and even if this government project never makes a dime in profit.

    You all know this. Those who dont are simply twisting Jesus's message for their own ends.

    You all know that at the end of your life when you stand before God, he will not be happy with you with holding your support on the basis that you only want to help out you and yours.

    Moreover the claims about freedom are false, since as Jesus will point out to you at the end, you didnt mind being forced to pay for guns and bombs so how how can you be so strident against being forced to pay for another man's health?

    Jesus would tell us that its all in God's plan.

    If we die, we die because god said it was our time, healthcare is evil.



    The lord is my shepherd, I shall not want (healthcare).
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    In order to believe that Jesus would want a huge Government to "help" the people, one must suspend skepticism that those in Government house have the best interest of "the people" in mind.

    Who's interests do you think they have in mind? I'm curious.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Then you don't know much about what the Bible teaches about Jesus.

    Please point out where Jesus got involved in Roman politics or any politics for that matter? Oh you can't because he did not. Since this is political issue he would not have gotten involved, period.

    He did do faith healing, and advocated it. So he would not be for any system at all.

    You even use Christ for your political hackery.

    Shame on you.

    The Christian value of charity must be taken up voluntary.
