Title: A Christian apologetic concerning Obamacare – Part 2
For those young invincibles who need to sign-up for Obamacare and pay for us who are ignorant, old, or sick, remember, you are already responsible to repay thousands of dollars which this government has spent. (If you are 20 years old, your portion of the current national debt is: $709,972. A motivating quote: “The money comes from government borrowing from your children. Honestly, if I had children, I might be tempted to leave this country . . .”). Hopefully, financially, most young invincibles will continue to spurn Obamacare.
President Obama, himself, claims that Obamacare is based upon economics. He states: “In my health care bill, I said insurance companies need to provide contraceptive coverage to everybody who is insured. Because this is not just a health issue, it's an economic issue for women. It makes a difference.” This is a very thought-provoking change from the original founding fathers’ intent of making laws.
So, who exactly are these women who need contraceptive coverage for ‘economic’ reasons? Having sexual relations outside of marriage indicates an amoral behavior, and it appears that this law economically advocates amoral behavior. The two, amoral behavior and economic prosperity, cannot co-exists; furthermore, the concept and end-result of any government official consider drafting, editing, and publishing an amoral law amounts to disloyalty and in President George Washington’s opinion: “. . . [for] political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these. . . ”
There is nothing in the Bible encouraging amoral government economics. Moreover, there exists no reference in the New Testament where Christ requested the Roman government to provide for the poor; additionally, there are only four references in the Old Testament where the government is requested to care for the poor: Proverbs 29:14, Ecclesiastes 5:8, Jeremiah 22:11-16, and Daniel 4:27. Each of these Old Testament passages speak of the legal defense and protection the government is to provide freely for the poor. There is no passage in the Bible that dictates to the government social welfare; providing the poor financial aid is the responsibility of Christian charity (Galatians 2:10).
