Phil Robertson: “The Problem Is That We’ve Pushed God Out”

November 14, 2017 — Leave a comment

I’m cautious of any and all mainstream news, including that which comes from conservatives. It’s good practice to read between the lines, and really take in what’s being said. Besides that, I do it because I’m no mindless drone. It pays to be informed.

Phil Robertson’s points here are excellent. I agree with most of them. I do, however, find myself conflicted about universal health care.

The package for any country has to have the right balance. There should be a safety net that doesn’t hinder the free market, but ensures citizens get the best care available.

While being fully aware of the arguments against government funded universal healthcare, being raised in a country that has a version of it, I see that the benefits of universal healthcare, outweigh the drawbacks, making it the only area where I find myself slightly at odds with what Phil has to say.

I’ve plugged this video on social media a few times today because there’s a whole lot of good in it:

“Once you elevate government to where it supersedes God and you begin to think the government will feed us. The government will house us. The government will educate us. The government will provide our health care, once you do that you begin on a downward spiral and you end up where all the nations before of us have ended up.
We’ve removed God. We pushed him out of our culture and every way possible.We pushed God out of the public domain and we’ve got him pushed out of the way.
What we need to do is understand that worship is not about going to church worshipping and leaving worshipping God is offering yourself your body as a living sacrifice everywhere you are you point people to the God of creation everywhere you are work play 24/7 we have to implement that we’re gonna have more the same.”
