No Comments

When the Obama administration began pushing the use of electronic health records (EHR), they were touted as a “savior” for medicine. But instead of saving money for patients, doctors and hospitals, EHRs have increased costs and yielded record-breaking profits for EHR vendors, such as EPIC and Cerner. Even worse, they have compromised care and interfered in medical decision-making.

EHRs, sometimes referred to as EMRs or electronic medical records, have complicated and change the medical practice. Continue reading…

The Affordable Care Act has made many headlines in the past several weeks, but few know it established a new government agency to conduct research on the American people without their consent. The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI, or Innovation Center) is meant to “test innovative payment and service delivery models to reduce program expenditures.” Several models give preference to or mandate the use of electronic health records (EHRs).

President Trump gets it.

During his state of the Union address—as Nancy Pelosi and her crew smirked and shook their heads in opposition to statements that otherwise responsible leaders should have been celebrating—President Donald J. Trump decried New York’s recent law that attempts to legitimize murder of infants up to moments before birth. Trump also soundly denounced the governor of Virginia’s position defending so-called “post-birth” abortion. The president spoke of ending childhood cancer, valuing motherhood and “restoring our culture” to “guard and cherish human life.” Continue reading…

Will you get different care by going to a doctor who is a professed Christian? How should a believer practice medicine?

I’ve worked in the medical community for 15 years. My colleagues are good doctors, by and large. Medicine has a lot of standard procedures—how you treat blood pressure, diabetes or chronic illnesses—and, for the most part, you will likely get technically similar care no matter where you go.

One of the strong “selling” points of the internet is that it allows everyone who desires to contribute their opinions to do so.

Regardless of their station in life, people can express what they think on the web — and others can chime in with their own versions of opinion. Continue reading…

Two weeks ago, our organization called on States opposing Obamacare to take the judge’s ruling and run with it. The ACA was ruled “invalid,” giving states an easy opportunity to break free.

We asked States to move forward with laws and regulations not compliant with the ACA; to ask insurers to offer the affordable major-medical catastrophic policies now prohibited by the ACA, and to re-open high-risk pools for people with uninsurable pre-existing conditions. Continue reading…

Because the Bible is clearly all about life, why do some Christians—and, in fact, some mainline denominations—favor abortion, the taking of an innocent life? Let me highlight the main arguments of pro-choice advocates here and also provide a life-giving Christian response to each one. Continue reading…

On Jan. 15, we celebrated the birthday of a true American hero, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, a Baptist minister and a courageous voice for racial justice and racial reconciliation. He was truly a God-given gift to our nation.

Frankly, I do not know how we would have made the tremendous steps we made in racial reconciliation in America, although we certainly have not arrived at Dr. King’s vision of a country in which we are judged not by the color of our skin but by the content of our character, as Dr. King so eloquently articulated in his “I Have a Dream Speech” at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. in August 1963, a speech enshrined in the pantheon of the most eloquent American speeches.

Africa’s most populous country is Nigeria, with a population that today numbers 200 million and that is on track by 2050 to be larger than America’s. Nigeria is also poised to become its continent’s biggest problem.

Terrorists associated with Boko Haram and Fulani militants are slaughtering, enslaving, expelling and otherwise persecuting a growing number of Nigerian Christians. Some Muslims have also been killed. Nigeria’s government has not been successful in preventing such horrors, and these traumatic effects are rippling throughout that nation and neighboring states in the Lake Chad region.

Timothy Plan for Christian Post: Money — Ultimate Power Trip or Ultimate Opportunity for Growth?

No Comments

By Robert Knight for The Christian Post | Image from Christian Post

A lot of people are surprised to learn that Jesus devoted 15 percent of his recorded words to the subject of money, and that the Bible has more than 2,300 verses addressing it.

Money is of great importance because it fuels nearly all our activities in some way and can be used for good or ill. It is utterly necessary for daily living, and its handling is a mark of character, again, for good or ill.

A common misnomer is that the Bible—and therefore God—regards money as evil. But this is a misreading of 1 Timothy 6:10, in which the Apostle Paul warns: “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” Continue reading…
