It’s not the stormtroopers per se. They’re just the means to an end. That end is the destruction of civil society to make room for Leviathan.
It warms my heart to see my minions helping a handicapped boy this way.
That, or the warm feeling in my chest means something has shorted out.
What Do You Know About Christian Healthcare Ministries as a Solution to the Health Insurance Problem? (January 2015 Update)
Many of you know that ACA cancelled my family’s private insurance. New Obamacare insurance would cost us several hundred dollars more a month, increasing our premiums by 150%. It would also dramatically increase our deductible by 150%, but paying the massive premium increase would mean we had no money in the budget left over to pay actual medical bills. To afford healthcare insurance we would have to not afford healthcare. We have been a little desperate.
We’ve prayed and researched. We think we’ve found a solution. We’re joining a Christian healthcare ministry (also known as a healthcare sharing group). Specifically we’re joining the Christian Healthcare Ministries.
I know many families are looking pretty hard at their healthcare situation right now. This post is about what I think is a decent option for Mormons and others. I hope it helps anyone who is looking for an out from a bad insurance situation. Please share it with anyone who might benefit.
At the same time, this post is a request for anybody who knows anything about Christian healthcare ministries to share what they know. If you have had a good or a bad experience with a healthcare ministry or sharing organization, please tell us about it in the comments. I and others who read this would benefit. The more information the better.

Dr. Jodi Smith’s profile is up at Mormon.org. Dr. Jodi Smith is one of those people who make you believe that calling us Saints might mean something. She gave us a few more years with Betsey Pearl in a very difficult and delicate operation around Betsey’s brainstem and she spent some of the very little free time she had comforting us and praying with us. Like most of us, she probably knows herself too closely to think of herself as a saint and would believe that I’m overpraising her. But I believe that in God’s eyes, who we are when we are at our best is probably who we really are. We are grateful to have known Dr. Smith. May she continue to improve the lives of these little ones.
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great acommandment.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Thus Christ’s summary of the Mosaic law. (more…)
