The U.S. House Republicans are claiming they will repeal the new comprehensive health care law passed last year by our government. Some people claim it is not our duty to be sure that everyone in America receives health care. Some people claim that it is too expensive for their business. Some people don't like the fact that lots of people will get coverage even though they don't have a job.
But with Americans increasingly experiencing the gap between the rich and the poor, with less jobs available for our youth, and certainly with less good paying jobs available, I ask WHO is going to ensure that our nations sick, our nations young mothers, our nations elderly can get decent medical care?
If it is not us, then WHOM? Either we are serious about the ways of Jesus Christ, or we are nothing but fakes. In such case, it is no wonder that hurting and broken people fail to see our witness. Until we decide to become disciples of Jesus Christ, our voice has no value (whether we are forgiven or not).
Until we believe our neighbors are worthy of our monies, can we be serious disciples of Jesus Christ regardless how many times a week we attend 'church'?
