Store-bought Faith ~ February 13

Store-bought Faith

They call it “insurance”

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5

Many—probably most—who read this will disagree with what I have to say; Insurance is the world’s version of faith. We have been convinced it is not simply advisable, but necessary. In effect, what we’ve done is bought into the idea we must pay in advance for any calamities that might come upon us, and to say we do not need insurance is looked upon as foolish.

The biggest topic in the news these days is “healthcare”, but it’s not really health “care” they’re trying to force us to purchase, it’s health “insurance”. And, almost anyone you talk to will agree, we have to have health insurance. Most will justify it in one way or another, but the fact is, the reason for insurance—of any kind—is fear; fear we won’t have enough money to pay for a check-up, an operation, or even the pills they say we need.

I don’t want insurance, and I firmly believe I don’t need insurance. The only reason I have insurance for anything, is because the government forces me to buy it. Call me a fool, but I believe the last part of Hebrews 13:5; God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.

That, is my insurance!
