Nothing new under the sun.

“But see, we are slaves today, slaves in the land You gave our forefathers so they could eat its fruit and the other good things it produces.   Because of our sins, its abundant harvest goes to the kings You have placed over us. They rule over our bodies and our cattle as they please. We are in great distress. Nehemiah 9:36, 37

With passage of the health care bill, the government will rule over our bodies.  “They” have been ruling over our cattle (and other livelihood) since the 16th amendment was ratified February 3, 1913.

But back up a little to Nehemiah 9:28  — “But as soon as they were at rest, they again did what was evil in Your sight. Then You abandoned them to the hand of their enemies so that they ruled over them. And when they cried out to You again, you heard from heaven, and in Your compassion You delivered them time after time.

You know what to do.  If not, here is a hint: 2 Chronicles 2:14 — if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
