President Obama and others are saying that the American people don’t care about process in the health care reform debate- that it’s the substance that matters. But Jesus told us that process does matter- it tells us the difference between honest dealers and thieves.
John 10:1 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2 “But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
If the substance were good, they wouldn’t need to pull the shenanigans- it would be law already. The fact that the substance of the health care bill is so bad and so hated by the American public is what makes this deceptive chicanery necessary.
We can see this operating in all areas of life. People with good intentions toward you are honest in the way that they pursue their goals. If someone is trying to steal your money or enslave you, they ambush you, they trick you, they work under cover of darkness. If a man is climbing into your window at night, you have good reason to suspect him of ill will toward you.
