Biblical Proof That True Christians Support Health Care Reform (Part 9)
As health care reform heads to Sunday’s vote, WTBN talk radio Christians continue to be dragged kicking and screaming, when according to my understanding they should be embracing and insisting upon it. Just now I heard the well known lying, racist hypocrite Malkin, who openly consorts with nazis, and Janet Mefferd railing against it, and saying that, God willing, it will be struck down tomorrow.
If we truly were a Christian nation, with the best health care on earth, we’d not only take care of our own, we’d share it with everyone, knowing that then God would bless America for giving generously of her gifts.
I opened my Bible and that’s exactly what happened two thousand years ago when the world discovered that Jesus Christ in Israel was the greatest doctor anywhere.
Matthew 4:24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.
Did you catch that, townhall.com and Fox News and all you other right wing compassionate conservative 'Christian' crazies? He healed the LUNATICS. He could help you.
He really got around, too. Check out some of the countries he visited.
Matthew 8: 28-34 ‘And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? Art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.’
Matthew 14: 34-36 ‘And when they were gone over into the land, they came into the land of Gennesaret. And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased; And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.’
Matthew 19: 1-2 ‘And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan; And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.’
Mark 7: 31 ‘And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, be opened. And straightway his ears were opened and the string of his tongue was loosed, and spake plain.’
Many also came from afar.
Matthew 15: 22 ‘ And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to the dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.’
Mark 7: 25-28 'For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet: The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. But Jesus said unto her, let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the childrens’s crumbs. And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.'
Look what he did for a Roman.
Matthew 8:5-10 ‘And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it, he marveled, and said to them that followed, Verily, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.’
So if a Syrophenician woman brought you her sick daughter, would you treat her? Jesus did. He didn't just heal wealthy Americans with bullet proof insurance policies--He healed them ALL.
