Throughout time people have attended worship places for a variety of reasons. Many people sought safety and sanctuary while others searched for the solace and wisdom of a higher power. But soon pastors and congregations may experience a new surge in church attendance as people come to understand that a belief in Christian principles and regular church attendance may, in fact, exempt them legally from Obamacare and its individual mandate.
Non-profit "health care sharing ministries" have long provided a viable alternative to traditional health insurance. Members pay a monthly membership share that is often less than comparable health care premiums. While not a traditional health care policy with mounds of regulations, a member's health care costs are covered through Christian sharing. Indeed, angelic forces may be guiding many back to faith as a result of the Affordable Care Act.
