How Could This Happen?
A story that has outraged an Arizona community and the entire nation centers around a woman, who while in a vegetative state for over a decade, gave birth to a healthy baby -- yet not one facility employee even noticed she was pregnant! How could this happen?
A myriad of excuses and blame are being thrown about, and criminal investigations ongoing. Lawsuits are bound to ensue. But the inconvenient nasty truth is that "we, the people" have abdicated our responsibilities to care for our own family members. How could this happen?
Nursing homes and care facilities began to prosper when families decided that caring for their elders and incapacitated loved ones was too inconvenient, expensive and emotionally troublesome. Family members, however, are not alone in the blame dept ...
The Allopathic Medical Industry is equally culpable by not prescribing elderly protocols that include nutrition and natural alternatives which have a higher recovery and healing rate than do poisonous drugs with their lethal side effects. Synthetic prescriptions weaken the immune system, destroy cognitive abilities; and along with hospital errors, kill more than 200,000 people every year. Over time, drugs can debilitate the elderly so they are unable to maintain their independence. We've been deceived into worshiping at the altar of technology, regardless of outcomes. How could this happen?
And of course there is Big Pharma--the Government-protected drug cartel with its near-billion dollar pharmaceutical lobby in Washington D.C. that influences the course of how disease will be treated. And we mustn't forget the Insurance Monopolies whose D.C. presence has been equally damaging to affordable healthcare. How could this happen?
What about the "Medical Deities" who've taken it upon themselves to play God? No longer is Jehovah Rapha the exclusive author of life and death. No longer is one's appointed time to die left in the hands of a loving God. The elderly and infirmed are all-too-often "kept alive" through extraordinary mechanical and artificial means. They are no longer allowed to die! If people want to ensure they don't live out their days on machines in a vegetative state, they must invest in legally binding documents to keep the Government from deciding their fate. How could this happen?
This tragic scenario has a shady history and could have easily been prevented had "we, the people," continued to adhere to the Biblical principles which once governed the nation. In 1935, Congress introduced the concept of Social Security under a Socialist Administration (FDR). It was the birth of the entitlement mentality so pervasive in America today. But the Government is not completely at fault. After all, we do have the Government we deserve ...
No, this deplorable situation began when the heart of man turned from God to follow his own way; when man decided Sorcery (Pharmakeia) was the best way to treat disease rather than the herbs, grasses and essential oils God gave us as medicine; when the people's consciences were dulled to allow the Government to decide their loved ones' fate.
The only solution is Repentance! Return to the Lord - Teshuvah - and reverse the curse that our rebellion has brought upon our elderly, our families, our nation and ourselves ...
