Wow! When you bring up the topic of President Obama's Health Care Plan you find out pretty quickly where people stand. It is an emotional, hot button topic. Folks either love it or they hate it. I admit, I have very strong feelings about it myself.
I hate to see the government MORE involved in almost anything. I hate to see private industry MORE controlled in almost any situation. I hate to see people deceived into believing that millions more folks will be receiving MORE benefits and it is going to cost billions of dollars LESS. Insurance companies cannot cover every person and every condition and still make a profit and continue in the insurance business. That will leave the government as the only insurer which is probably the whole point any way! The whole mess drives us further down the road toward socialism and the government monitoring or controlling more and more of our personal lives.
I could go on an on about my thoughts, arguments and feelings but that's not my direction for today. I wanted to tell you about my health care plan. Bro. Jerod Burris, a dear pastor friend in California came up with this on Monday while mulling all of this over in his mind. With his permission, I have adopted it as my own. Bro. Jarod's statement is point 2 & 3 below.
Here it is. I'm not going to fret over the government takeover of the health care system. They do not control my health care. They will not affect my health care plan. They cannot fix or destroy my health care plan. It is beyond their control!
1. My Health Care Plan is not and cannot be administered or hijacked by the Government.
2. "My Health Care Plan has ALWAYS accepted pre-existing conditions and...
3. The premium has already been paid!"
Update From Bro. Jarod Burris Wednesday 3/24 11:15 pm
4. My Health Plan gives 24/7 access from anywhere in the world.
5. No deductible or out of pocket expenses.
6. No waiting forever in the waiting area. The Doctor CAN see you right now.
7. My doctor has never had a malpractice case.
Psalm 103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
I Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
We are living in uncertain times, friends, but we are going to be victorious! Our faith is not in our President. Our faith is not in our government. Our faith is not in a particular system or ideology. Our Faith is in Christ our Lord! "On Christ the solid rock I stand. All other ground is sinking sand. All other ground is sinking sand." (My Hope is Built)
Praise God! May God bless and keep you in His peace!
