From something Ali sent me.
“I used to think we Christians were pro-life. It turns out, we are simply anti-abortion.”
It was an article about universal healthcare. Calm down, Jared. I’m not a big fan of bigger government. But I’m also not a big fan of being uninsured. But I think Shawn M. is right. If Christians would do what we are called to do and truly reflect Christ, these issues wouldn’t even exist. Instead of arguing about whether there should be universal healthcare, we should be talking about taking on an inner-city family to provide for their healthcare needs from our overflow of blessings. Is welfare a bad system? Maybe Christians should start feeding more people.
I sound cynical against Christians. I’m not. I just ask myself often, “Am I doing all that I can.” Not to be all Schindler, but do I have a ring I could sell so that one more person would know the unconditional, saving sacrifice of Jesus?
