An Interesting Health Care Observation
At the God and Governing conference Paul Marshall made a humorous observation with a point. He was critical of the way Pietists and Anabaptists are opposed to Christian involvement with government because they see (wrongly) government as solely a realm of evil under the control of the powers of darkness - the "antichrist." But many of the same people support socialized medicine - a huge enlargement of government power over our everyday lives. Marshall then quipped "Is it wise to entrust our health care to the antichrist?"
