So, what happens if you share your medical bills with other people who don’t drink, don’t smoke, and are big on Jesus? Apparently, according to Fox News, you save money on your medical bills:
"It works just like insurance. I have an insurance card. I show it just like anyone else would. I have a deductible. I have a monthly premium that I pay," explained Eileen Wade, who joined the health care sharing ministry, Medi-Share, in 2011.
The nation’s three largest ministries boast more than 242,000 members, spanning all 50 states, who agree to live so-called biblical lifestyles — meaning regular church attendance; no drugs, tobacco, or sex outside of marriage; and limited alcohol consumption.
This kind of healthier lifestyle helps keep monthly premiums lower than that of other health insurers for most members.
"There’s definitely an economic benefit, a windfall if you would, by living healthier lives," said Medi-Share’s CEO, Tony Meggs.
So basically the way to cheap insurance—and enlightenment—is through the Bible. Ken Ham was right all along.

Washington lobbyist Jack Burkman on Monday said he is preparing legislation that would ban gay athletes from joining the National Football League.
Burkman in a statement said he has garnered political support for the bill, though his statement didn’t mention any specific lawmakers who are behind it.
”We are losing our decency as a nation,” Burkman said in a statement. “Imagine your son being forced to shower with a gay man. That’s a horrifying prospect for every mom in the country. What in the world has this nation come to?”
Burkman said he came up with the idea after college football star Michael Sam publicly revealed he is gay a few weeks ago. If drafted, Sam would be the first openly gay player in the NFL.
Dear lobbyist: Die in a fire. Sincerely, ShortFormBlog’s staff.
