On March 23, 2010, President Barack Obama signed into law the Senate’s version of the Health Care Reform bill, a bill that locks almost every American into a “disease care” system that will not only do great harm to the health of the American people, but ultimately destroy the nation’s economy because of the staggering costs the bill will create.
The legislation was brought to the President’s desk for signature following the bill’s passage in the House of Representatives by a vote of 219 – 212. It is worth noting that this bill passed without a single Republican vote after a clear majority of the American people had voiced opposition to its passage.
Some rejoiced over the passage of this bill, thinking it would solve all health care problems, provide health insurance coverage for 32 million additional Americans, cover pre-existing conditions, prevent insurance companies from dropping their coverage, lower health care costs, and improve the health of the American people
Others, like myself, realized that this bill had absolutely nothing to do with improving the health of the American people.
Rather, it forces every citizen into a government controlled health care system that will restrict freedoms, create a new government entitlement program which will bankrupt our nation, ultimately drive insurance companies out of business, while bringing additional revenue to the drug industry, the very industry proponents of this bill say they are against.
Obama Care Has Nothing To Do With Reforming Health Care
The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA), better known as Obama Care that President Obama signed into law, while having nothing to do with improving the health of the American people, had everything to do with forcing every citizen into a system that had already proven to be an extremely expensive failure.
Now there are some who claim PPACA is going to destroy the “best health care delivery system in the world”, the one that has been in effect in America for the past century.
Now here is where I disagree — America does NOT have the best health care system in the world, before or after the passage of the recent bill. Here’s why…
Previous Health Care Did Not Improve People’s Health
The Health Care being offered the American people prior to the passage of this new Health Care Reform legislation had never, since its inception, been able to heal anyone of anything!
You may think that’s a bizarre statement. But consider the facts…
All previous health care, since its inception to this present day, has dealt with the symptomatic approach to physical problems, rather than determining the cause of the physical problems and then eliminating that cause, which eliminates the problem.
Just this past week, two studies going back 15 years show this to be true: ‘Americans pay more per capita for health care than any other industrialized country. In return, we are sicker, die younger and are unhappier with the system.’ And then there is the U. S. Institute of Medicine that says ‘tens of thousands of Americans are dying from medical errors and drug overdoses’ under the previous system.
For a few minutes, let’s take a look at how some of the most preventable health conditions have been dealt with in the past and how they will continue to be dealt with in the future under this new Affordable Care Act legislation:
CANCER – Prior to the passage of this bill how did the medical community treat cancer? Was it not with the use of dangerous chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery – modalities that are not only extremely expensive and potentially exacerbate the problem, but often cause needless suffering and eventually the unnecessary and untimely death of multitudes? Most of those who die following cancer treatment die from the treatment and not the cancer itself.
Will this new Health Care Reform legislation change the way the medical community treats cancer or change the outcome? Absolutely not! Rather it will continue to treat people with cancer using the same modalities that have already proven to be a failure.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE & CLOGGED ARTERIES – Prior to the passage of this bill how did the medical community treat high blood pressure and clogged arteries? Was it not with drugs, by-pass surgeries, and stents? Have these treatments ever cured anyone of the problem, or rather did treatment require the person to continue the drugs the rest of their life, have additional surgeries for new blockages, and after receiving all these treatments, often die prematurely of a heart attack or stroke?
Will this new Health Care Reform legislation change the way the medical community treats high blood pressure and clogged arteries? Absolutely not! Rather they will continue to use the same expensive drugs and surgeries that have already proven a failure.
DIABETES – Prior to the passage of this bill how did the medical community treat diabetes? Was it not with insulin, additional drugs, and the recommendation of a high protein diet that exacerbated the problem and led to neuropathy, eyesight loss, and limb loss? All of these are temporary fixes that only deal with the symptom and not the cause. They never remove the problem!
Will this new Health Care Reform legislation change the way the medical community treats diabetes? Absolutely not! Rather they will continue to use the same insulin, expensive drugs and surgeries that have never cured anyone of the problem of diabetes and have already proven to be a failure.
I could go on and on. But the point is that the American people will only continue to deteriorate under the best care and modalities the medical community has to offer.
Will Obama Care Succeed Where Previous Methods Have Failed?
Complete implementation of this new Affordable Care Act will only guarantee another generation of pain and suffering at the hands of a medical system that has, for the past 2,000 years, already proven to be a failure.
Consider what the Bible has to say about how physical problems were dealt with in bible days, have been dealt with since bible days, and will continue to be dealt with under this new Affordable Care Act:
“And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered but rather grew worse.”
~ Mark 5:25-26
Before the Affordable Care Acts passed, Americans were spending $2.7 trillion annually on health care while the health of the American people, in spite of this huge expenditure, saw their health continue to decline. After spending all this money on so-called health care (I call it “disease care”), and additional billions on research, there has been no improvement in the health of the American people.
Surely bringing 32 million more people into a system that has already proven to be such an expensive and dismal failure, and adding trillions of dollars in additional monies to the cost of health care (which the Affordable Care Act does) cannot and will not improve the health of the American people!
Rather, it will continue to produce a sicker and sicker society, while bringing ever greater amounts of money into the health (disease) care industry.
You Don’t Have A Choice
Once this bill is fully implemented, it will be the first time in American history that this country’s citizens are forced to purchase something, whether they want it or not, or have need of it or not. If they fail to purchase health insurance, they will be forced to pay a tax penalty for noncompliance, even though President Obama previously said there would be no new taxes.
This government mandate is also a clear violation of the Constitution of these United States and is currently being challenged in the courts by various state attorneys general.
Yet, it disallows any monies for solutions that have already proven to work successfully in preventing sickness and restoring people to health through natural, non-toxic, and non life-threatening means.
Furthermore, those who maintain their health through a healthy diet and lifestyle are not rewarded for taking care of their own physical bodies. Rather the healthy individuals will be forced to pay into a failed disease care system that will require them to pay for the health care costs of those who do not take care of their health through a healthy diet and lifestyle.
This law will prove to be the death knell of what was once the “Land of the Free.”
I submit that the passage of this bill also guarantees that our nation will never again be able to regain its past greatness because the people of our land will be drowning in toxic drugs, degenerative diseases, uncontrollable health care costs — and debt that will have to be passed on to our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
Americans Don’t Need More of What Doesn’t Work
Americans do not need more drugs, more chemotherapy, more radiation, or more surgeries. Nor do they need more vaccines, mammograms or pap smears, more colonoscopies, more prostate screenings, more screenings for lung cancer, or more government mandates.
These and other screenings and tests only force more people into a failed system that will continue to lead both informed and uninformed citizens into deteriorating health and an unnecessary and early demise.
These screenings and tests are the feeder system into the medical system, because these tests and screenings almost always result in the discovery of new problems, even if they don’t pose a threat; yet “require” treatment because of the testing results.
I Love My God and I Love My Country
I am a Christian, a patriot, a conservative, and a citizen of these United States of America, who was raised to love God and country.
I remember well the day the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 (I was 7 years old at the time), and how the citizens of our great country rallied to defend our nation and defeat the Japanese, Germans, and Italians. Family members gave their lives in defense of this great nation.
I remember as a boy the tears of pride running down my cheeks as the marching band played the Star Spangled Banner. I remember how as a young man I went off to war during the Korean conflict, and how devastated I was when years later, leaders in our own government tied the hands of our military, preventing victory during the Vietnam War.
I remember how as a young pastor I warned in numerous sermons about Communism, and how thrilled I was when President Ronald Reagan stood up boldly at the Berlin wall said, “Mr. Gorbachev, Tear down this wall.”
I was so proud that we finally had a president that would stand against the tyrants of this world and stand up for America and its historic ideals and values. And what a thrill it was when, as a result of President Reagan’s bold stand, Communism fell!
Today, Our New Enemy Is Within
But today, we have a new enemy, and sadly the enemy is within. Our current government is attempting to totally control the people, and this Affordable Care Act legislation is the ultimate tool, giving government the legal power to control not only the health the physical bodies of every individual, but their pocketbooks as well.
What our country desperately needs is an awakening of the people to the true cause of the problems our nation faces. Regarding our health, America needs a health revolution — a revolution that offers an alternative to an industry that government currently protects and is forcing everyone to become a part of… a system that depends on sickness and disease for its absurd profits and control of the people.
In its place we need to make available to the American people a new system based on a wellness model — a system that promotes natural healing through quality nutrition, abundant sunshine, exercise, and personal responsibility.
If adopted, such a system would slash health care costs because the only need for the medical community would be for the fixing of bodies that have been broken by trauma. This system would place our nation on a new and exciting path leading to freedom, health, and prosperity.
Hallelujah Acres offers such a model!
Hallelujah Acres has, for 22 years, proven there is a better way of dealing with physical problems than the way physical problems have been dealt with in the past.
Almost everyone who adopts the Hallelujah Diet, which is patterned after God’s original Genesis 1:29 diet, gets well from whatever their physical or even psychological problem was, and most don’t ever get sick again.
God had it right when He placed man in a garden and gave mankind the diet that would sustain life and produce a healthy physical body free of sickness. It was only after man left that garden and started consuming foods not found in God’s garden diet as found in Genesis 1:29 that sickness entered this world.
Ever since man left the garden, man has been trying to fix the physical problems caused by leaving the garden foods for all kinds of worldly foods and fixes that have never worked nor can they ever work.
Isn’t It Time To Get Back To The Garden?
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, attempted to show man the right way to restoring health without drugs when he spoke the following words over 2,000 years ago:
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” and “do thy patient no harm”
And then there were these words from God, even thousands of years earlier:
“AND GOD SAID, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat (FOOD).”
~ Genesis 1:29
These words were spoken by God to Adam some 6,000 years ago after He had created him. Friends, who would know better what was proper fuel for the human physical body than the Creator of that body? Most of our physical problems are caused by eating the world’s diet and can only be corrected by returning to God’s diet. “AMEN”
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
~ 3 John 2
How To Avoid Obama Care
For those who desire medical coverage without going through the exchanges, there are two Christian organizations that offer medical expense “sharing” and both of these plans are exempt from the Affordable Care Act. Their rates are in most cases considerably below those found on the exchange websites.
“If you are a committed Christian, you do not have to violate your faith by purchasing health insurance from a company that pays for abortions and other unbiblical medical practices. You can live consistently with your beliefs by sharing medical needs directly with fellow believers through Samaritan Ministries’ non-insurance approach. This approach even satisfies the Federal health care law’s (Affordable Care Act) requirement that you have insurance or pay a penalty-tax (see 26 United States Code Section 5000A, (d), (2), (B)).”

“The Affordable Care Act contains a special provision for members of Healthcare Sharing Ministries, making Medi-Share members exempt from the mandate to purchase insurance by 2014 or face financial penalties. Law Language – (Sec 1501, page 148 addresses the exemption)”
