Biblical Evidence That True Christians Support Health Care Reform Part Seven
As wealthy America continues to sodomize the poor by failing to provide universal health care, in hypocritical contradiction to the 'Judeo-Christian democracy' we proclaim to be, wherein the will of the majority would be heard and heeded, I thought I’d turn to the Bible and explain the real sin of Sodom.
The common misperception is that it was a city of sexually deviant mule shaggers and rapists who went about having violent intercourse with the nearest ass (hence the eponymous term sodomy). While no doubt some of those behaviors went on there, the real immorality of that city was her inhospitable treatment of strangers and her own people.
The Bible says so.
‘Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.’ Ezekiel 16: 49-50.
When Jesus ministered, healing ALL the sick that came to him, feeding the hungry and bringing light into the world, he specifically mentioned the destruction Sodom. ‘And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom, in the day of judgment, than for thee.’ Matthew 11:23-24.
The denizens of Sodom had innate human decency to guide them, and ignored it to follow after their own dark hearts. Capernaum bore witness to the wondrous miracles of Christ, and refused to see and repent of their evil ways. ‘Christian’ America has the benefit of the resurrection that followed Christ’s visit to Capernaum, two thousand years of his profound influence on history, and witnessing firsthand the fulfillment of all of Christ’s prophecies concerning the latter days, and STILL refuses to do what pleases God. How much more do you think you incite His wrath when you enable unholy devils to devour countless billions of dollars while your poor brothers and sisters live in misery and die for lack of the basic necessities of food, shelter and health care?
If Sodom was destroyed by a rain of brimstone and fire from heaven, and Capernaum was cast into hell, what fate awaits you American ‘Christians’ who oppose the will of God in the name of Christ? The rain that fell on Sodom will seem like a cool spring shower when God blesses America as she deserves.
