Overview

What does the Bible say about Obamacare? Is there scriptural support for universal health care?Using over 200 little-known scriptures, this book proves that the Old and New Testaments made caring for marginalized groups (the sick, the poor, the immigrant, and the prisoner) a national, collective, and legal responsibility, not merely a matter for private charity or churches.Inspired by Matthew 25 where Jesus commanded His followers to care for "the least of these," the authors call both political parties to take wisdom from the Bible for reforming health care, immigration, welfare, and prisons. A must-read for progressives and non-Christians alike to speak the language of the Bible to help evangelical Christians resist the call of social Darwinism and Ayn Rand, whose doctrines have long dominated Republican social and economic policies. Many evangelicals have supported Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare because they mistakenly believe that the Bible opposes governments' following Jesus' commands and that only small government is biblical. This book shatters that myth.The authors demonstrate how Republicans have hijacked American faith in politics for too long, and how their actual philosophy comes from the gods of Mammon and atheist thinkers. If sincere people study the Bible and learn key scriptures, they will know how strongly the Bible supports universal heath care, as well a humane immigration policy, welfare for the poor, and prison reform.
