Deborah Hage: What would Jesus do on health care?

Deborah Hage

Jesus, the original administrator of “universal health care,” had no litmus tests as to who he would heal. Any people who identify a specific area of the earth as theirs can make whatever laws they want, but that does not mean they are faithful to the Kingdom of God. Christians preach the abundant grace and love of God while making decisions based on a model of scarcity … “There is enough for me (Our members of congress have the best health care insurance in the world!) but, unfortunately, there is not enough for you.” Jesus modeled a way of love and compassion for the poor. He didn’t fight for a way of life for the comfortable.
