A note to our readers:
We will be posting a lot of news updates and articles in the coming weeks, please be prayerful, thoughtful and open to God's leading.
The news alerts may be somewhat disturbing, but necessary. We will continue to encourage you in the Lord, but your ultimate source of comfort and strength will be from Him directly. Get in the Word and stay in prayer always. We are in dark times, we must stay close to our wonderful Lord and Savior, and always remember…He has already won! And………so will we!
Remember 2 Corinthians 10:4 says, "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds."
We must pray, and pray without ceasing for the Lord to pull down the strongholds in this nation. We must also be informed and understand what is going on around us. Pray for discernment and wisdom. We must ask for strength, courage, and boldness to stand in the evil day, standing in righteousness. We must act by doing what is good and what is right in the eyes of the Lord, and for your fellowman.
What does the Constitution really say? Find out!
What does the Healthcare bill really say? Find out!
In an article written by Chelsea Schilling at WorldNetDaily, she states that Michael Boldin, founder of The Tenth Amendment Center, told WND (WorldNetDaily) that if citizens want to understand whether health care is constitutional, they must first understand the function of the Constitution.
"No powers can be exercised by the Congress which are prohibited by the Constitution or which are contrary to its spirit."
– Justice John McLean, Dred Scott v. Sandford, 1857
The article goes on to address the following question:
Is a federal government takeover of the health care system constitutional?
Some argue that under the Constitution, Congress is not authorized to regulate or subsidize health care
"The best way to look at it is that it doesn't apply to you," he said. "It doesn't apply to me. It doesn't apply to any person at all. IT APPLIES TO THE GOVERNMENT, and it sets the boundaries of what government is supposed to do."
In debating whether health care is constitutional, Boldin said citizens must look to the founding document to 1) determine whether the power is specifically listed there, or 2) if there isn't a specific power listed, look to the "Necessary and Proper Clause," or Article I, Section 8, clause 18.
Article I, Section 8, specifically lists the following powers granted to Congress:
* The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
* To borrow money on the credit of the United States;
* To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

throughout the United States;

* To establish Post Offices and Post Roads;

* To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;
* To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offenses against the Law of Nations;
* To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;
