Health Care Reform remains a defining moment for Christians!

Every United States president dreams of making a landmark contribution during his (or one day her) term of office. For President Obama, this contribution is “Health Care Reform.” When the air clears, hopefully people will be able to once again think logically rather than emotionally, and consider the ramifications of this decision.
As a Christian, I can’t help thinking that Queen Esther had her King Xerxes, Daniel had King Nebuchadnezzar, Joseph had Pharaoh, and Paul had King Agrippa. In each instance, each Bible hero or heroine had a defining moment where the choice was to allow God to use them for His glory, or to judge the ungodly behavior of their respective rulers, and turn away from them in disgust. In most cases, these Bible legends were able to influence their rulers for the good of the people.
Now, today, the Prolife Movement has President Obama. Do we allow offense to prevent us for praying for him and for America, or do we press on in the battle to uncover the evils of abortion, eugenics and genocide? Our battle is not about which humans are right and which humans are wrong. The battle isn’t about Democrats and Republicans. God is not a Democrat or a Republican!
As Christians, we must continue to shine the light of love and truth, to pray for those in authority, and to resist evil practices. The health care reform is primarily an extension of Medicare, with all of the political hype being about distracting the public while the dirty deals were being cut behind the scene. The so called Health Care Reform is really more of what we already have. Appropriate legislation could have been passed to serve the 32 million needing health care with a lot less pain, fanfare and money. Instead of being expedient, our political “leaders” have been greedy as usual, and lot of pockets have been lined, make no mistake about it. That being said, we must still remain encouraged. We must press on for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for everyone from conception to natural death. Procreative reproductive health should be a mantra for any health care packaging. We must elect political leaders who will listen to the voice of the people! Americans choose life! It’s time to take the message to the people! We must stay focused and press on towards the mark!
