A lightning bolt striking someone was seen as God's direct act (primary cause), because forces of nature (secondary cause) were not understood. Nowadays we know na- ture has its own laws, its own ways of acting. A lightning bolt strikJng some- one isn't a directly sent action of God. It is an act of nature acting according to its own laws. God is behind it only in the sense that he established the laws of nature in na- ture itself. Applying this to the Mark 4 text above, we see that God didn't de- liberately block people from understanding the message. They didn't understand it, so that failure to understand was presented as God's purpose. Yes, even on the lips of Jesus we find such words. But we need not believe that Jesus actually spoke those words. Mark is the human author here, and he doesn't write under divine dic- tating. He writes about events in the life of Jesus 30 years earlier, and de- scribes what he knows did occur (fail- ure to understand) as coming from God...again, because he didn't under- stand primary and secondary causes! Keep this distinction of prima~ and secondary causes in mind when you read Scripture. It will enormously help you to understahd passages that seem to present God as heart less. e yen cruel. No such god exists. Behind the texts are writers who are trying to explain things in the only way they knew how in a era, from doctors that participate in tradi- tional Medicare, because those doc- tors do not participate with HMOs and other private plans.

Public Citizen' s latest report provides more evidence that Medicare privatization is not the right path for America's seniors," said Rockefeller, a senior member of the Senate Com- mittee on Finance.

The Public Citizen report concluded that, "Seniors should not be forced to make this choice." Rockefeller, a long-time leader on the health care front, said, "This re- port tells the president and Congress that the plan they are pushing is not going to work. We must instead build upon a system that has worked for nearly 40 years, and implement a pre- scription drug benefit under Medi- care that actually helps our seniors get the medicines they need at price they can afford."
