"Render unto Caesar...."Jesus and his followers gave everything away, no property, no goods, no weapons. Marx was the first one to "coin" the phrase "socialist". Jesus lived by the rules if someone needed it, give it to them. Jesus is love, love is giving, not taking and give until it included his life which is all he had left.Is there one story in the Bible where Jesus turned away from anyone in need? And he gave everything, not just "some". Jesus is about selflessness.Who followed the principles of Jesus in the modern day world? Mother Theresa gave everything she had, she had no weapons, she owned nothing, she provided care and medical treatment to the most helpless and unwanted, the cast off's of society....the Lepers.Jesus said we are ALL children of God and everyone in God's eyes is equal and treated the same because we are all sinners.. Don't bring JUDGEMENT into it because that is for God alone.
I know some Christians who object to taxpayer funded abortions.
Fudd, it might be easier to become a Christian Scientist. You could still use your computer!
SB, the more I think about what you posted about judgement, the more I realize that it is you who have passed judgement. You have no idea who helps who, yet you want to enforce it. God wanted us to give willingly, you know, a cheerful giver. Giving is a personal issue, not a governnment issue. While you assume that those who are against this healthcare bill do not want to "give". You would be wrong. I have not talked to one person who didn't say that some sort of reform was needed. However, how those changes were to be was the topic of discussion. Do you think it is right for you or the government to mandate that a citizen of the US HAS to purchase something? I don't. And I don't want to hear the old argument about car insurance. It is a flawed argument. I can't purchase automobile insurance AFTER I wreck my car and expect that same car to be covered. I CAN taylor my car insurance to my needs, not yours. Insurance should be the same. There should be no mandates for people to buy insurance when there are people who are able to pay cash for their services. People should be able to have health savings accounts, not a blanket insurance policy that they may not need. This bill is wrong on so many levels. But NEVER equate those who don't like this bill as people who don't want reform. That would be judgemental.
I'm sure there is a bunch of stuff in it that nobody has a clue about.It will will takes days / weeks before we really know what's in it and what all of the ramifications are.
