- 14. Christians Help Christians with Medical Bills, Refuse Obamacare
Are you a Christian who regularly attends church? Then, why are you allowing yourself to be victimized by the Leftists and railroaded into Obamacare? It may be "politically correct" in this country to insult and persecute Christians, but we don't have to pay for the abortions of those who insult us. For over two thousand years, Christians have helped others, no matter what their faith, or lack of it. We have a golden opportunity to practice our faith by helping other Christians.
Many Christians are leaving the insurance market to join healthcare sharing ministries. Members pay for one another’s medical bills. These groups, though not technically insurance, oversee networks where thousands of monthly “gifts” cover members’ eligible medical expenses. When the day comes that you need help, your fellow Christians are there to help you pay for your medical bills.
Your monthly cost will be lower, especially for families. You won't be paying for birth control pills, abortions, abortion-producing drugs, or alcohol or drug-related health issues or accidents.
There are three major health cost sharing programs in the U.S.A., with approximately 180,000 individual members. Study each one carefully. Monthly costs vary, as do benefit maximums and methods to increase them. Pay close attention to their provider networks, to see which program works best for you. All of them are based on Biblical principles.
Christian Health Ministries.
This Christian-led company has been in business for 30 years. In the last 20 years, Christian Health Ministry members have shared more than $1 billion in medical bills. The ministry is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Even their most expensive Gold plan is only $150 per month per insured. Families pay $450 per month, no matter how many children are in the family. Click HERE for more information.
Samaritan Ministries International.
In operation for nearly 20 years, Samaritan Ministries International is the largest bill-sharing faith based program with over 82,000 individual members. Click HERE for more information.
Christian Care Ministry/Medi-Share.
Based in Melbourne, Florida, this group has a community of over 70,000 members. Since 1993, Medi-Share members have shared more than $800 million in healthcare expenses. Click HERE for more information.

- 18. Abraham Lincoln's Thanksgiving Legacy
Thank you Jared Taylor, for this post
Key events in 1863 changed our nation forever. Since the beginning of the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln struggled to keep the States united. His military leadership severely under-performed and the nation was weary of war. The bitterness and bloodshed of the Civil War reached an all-time high in July at the Battlefield of Gettysburg.
Yet during it all, Lincoln remained committed to the Almighty God and His blessings. In October of 1863 he issued the following official proclamation making the last Thursday in November as a Thanksgiving celebration for the entire nation.Click here to read more
- 19. Arizona Constitution Seminar: 11/23/2013
Did you know that the Arizona Constitution is comprised of only 108 pages? Here's the link. The United States Constitution, including all 27 Amendments is comprised of only 21 pages. Here's the link. Did you know that the Arizona Constitution provides more individual protections in some areas than the U.S. Constitution, but that it also contains some of the most destructive, progressive elements as well? Have you heard of the Black Robe Regiment, and its recent resurgence? Here's the link. Did you know that more than ever in the history of America, our religious liberties are being assaulted, and Alliance Defending Freedom is doing all possible to help? Were you aware that when the IRS informs you that you must submit to an audit, they are violating the Fourth Amendment, unless they have obtained a search warrant and proved probable cause that you have broken a law? Here's the link.
We learned this and much more at the 11/23/2013 seminar that was organized by Sue Goodchild and held at the Living Faith Center in Prescott Valley. The cost was a mere $20, and included a wonderful catered lunch.
The speakers were Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne, Arizona Senator Chester Crandell (LD6), former Arizona Senator and Justice of the Peace Lester Pearce, and Shane Krauser, the director of the American Academy for Constitutional Education.
It was eye opening.
Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne spoke about some of the more positive aspects of provisions found in the Arizona Constitution. He first noted the Preamble, which is similar to the U.S. Constitution as well as other states' constitutions all across America:Click here to read more
- 20. Were the Founders Inspired by God?
Recently, Gilbert Watch received an email from a reader criticizing one of our Contributing Editors, Silence Dogood, for quoting Thomas Paine. His concern was that, based on his reading a book written by Thomas Paine, it seemed odd that Silence Dogood, who works tirelessly "to ensure that our Country and its Divine principles are left intact for future generations," would quote a man who stated that there was "no religion...more derogatory to the Almighty...than..Christianity." His criticism that Silence might not be informed about the Founders writings implicitly included Gilbert Watch as well.
Both Gilbert Watch and Silence Dogood thought readers of Gila Watch might be interested in reading this gentleman's email. (Silence Dogood also contributes to Gila Watch.) His personal information has been removed, but not a single word of his relevant statements have been edited or removed. Following the reader's email, you will see the responses from both Gilbert Watch and Silence Dogood.
According to your website, “Silence is a native Arizonan whose love of investigative research and drive for knowledge was ingrained early in life… Silence’s children are the prime motivation behind tireless work that ensures that our Country and its Divine principles are left intact for their generation and future generations to come.” Thomas Paine is then quoted: “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it.” I found Thomas Paine to be an interesting choice. I read the articles titled “Will God Survive in Amerika? We have a Choice” and “The Role of Religion in The Founding Fathers' Constitutional Formula.” In these articles, the writer refers to the anti-Christian “Amerikans” and the “secular left.”
"Based on what I have read, many of the more well-known Founding Fathers were secularists meaning they were not exclusively allied or against any particular religion. However, some of them, especially Thomas Paine, had particular complaints against Christianity. In fact, he wrote an entire book on it. It is called “Age of Reason.”
"Has Silence, or any of the other contributors read it? I ask because I cannot imagine having read it and still quoting Thomas Paine on this website. For your reference, below is an excerpt from “Age of Reason.”
”Of all the systems of religion that ever were invented, there is no more derogatory to the Almighty, more unedifying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory to itself than this thing called Christianity. Too absurd for belief, too impossible to convince, and too inconsistent for practice, it renders the heart torpid or produces only atheists or fanatics. As an engine of power, it serves the purpose of despotism, and as a means of wealth, the avarice of priests, but so far as respects the good of man in general it leads to nothing here or hereafter.”
"By no means am I advocating Thomas Paine’s viewpoint. I just think it is important for people who use the Founding Fathers to support their position to be well-informed."
