Christian health care reform cap for weekend outings

From the Psychology Today essay by Nathan Heflick who [without mentioning Richard Land] wrote:

There are about a zillion verses in the Bible saying we should help the poor, show compassion, be loving (it is the chief virtue right?) etc etc. What I cannot find is a verse where Jesus doesn’t help others, or even argues for that. It seems I live in a parellel universe where somehow this equates to “but people who are poor are lazy and shouldn’t get our help.” Do you really think Jesus would oppose universal healthcare because his taxes would get raised? Really?

Read the rest here.

  1. So true. And Jesus knows their hearts too; he knows it’s all about the money. Sad to say, He was right when He said you can’t serve two masters; and the Conservative Christian Right’s true master is “Money.” The world is watching and it grieves me when they see that the vast majority of Christians have placed more value of their tax dollars than saving lives. They can fool themselves, others but they can not fool Almighty God and rest assured they will be held accountable.
