Samaritan Ministries’ Members Follow Their Biblical Beliefs Through Health Care Sharing
The Hundreds of Thousands of Samaritan Members Do Not Share in Needs for Unbiblical Practices Such as Abortion
PEORIA, Ill.—Nearly 60 million unborn babies have lost their lives since Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in America, reports LifeNews.com. But members of Samaritan Ministries International (samaritanministries.org), one of the leading health care sharing ministries in America, have not contributed one penny in shares toward this tragedy.
Since its inception 23 years ago, Samaritan Ministries has enabled hundreds of thousands of people to honor God through their health care, which also means Samaritan’s 75,000 member households do not dishonor God by funding abortion or other unbiblical practices.
“For more than two decades, Samaritan Ministries has focused on honoring God through health care sharing,” said Anthony Hopp, Samaritan’s vice president of external relations. “Psalm 139:13 says, ‘For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb’ (ESV). We believe those words whole-heartedly. Millions of Americans can’t control where their insurance dollars go and don’t have a say if they are indirectly funding ungodly practices like abortion. But Samaritan members can be confident that they will not be assigned to send any of their monthly shares to help pay for anything that dishonors Jesus Christ.”
Samaritan Ministries will have staff members at this week’s 45th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., where millions of pro-life Americans will converge at the nation’s capital to stand up for the voiceless—the unborn who cannot stand for themselves.
These representatives of this pro-life health care sharing ministry will take part in the March, which begins at 11:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 19, at the National Mall. Samaritan is also a Pink Rose sponsor of the 36th Annual Rose Dinner Friday evening at the Renaissance Washington D.C. Downtown Hotel, where Pam Tebow, mother of well-known athlete Tim Tebow, will be the keynote speaker. Her story of refusing to abort Tim, after being advised to do so, gained national attention.
Last fall, Samaritan Ministries introduced a new membership level, Samaritan Basic, which offers a lower monthly share, coupled with a higher initial unshared amount, giving both current and future members another way to make the best health care sharing choice for their families—and their budgets.
Monthly shares for Samaritan Basic start as low as $100 for one person, $200 for two people and $250 for a family of any size, depending on age. Some guidelines differ between Samaritan Basic and Samaritan Classic; contact Samaritan Ministries for details or visit this link.
Each month, more than 240,000 individuals pray and send notes, cards and monthly financial shares directly to other member families, along with notes and cards of encouragement and prayers. In this way, Samaritan members share $25 million in medical needs each month through an effective, affordable and God-honoring ministry for Christian families that is based on Galatians 6:2: “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (ESV).
