Eeeh, I'd call that a stretch. Besides twisting "I now know" into "I already knew, but now it's known", which could have been accurately described if it had originally been written a different way and making some grand theological assumptions about what it means for god to know something, it doesn't explain why God needs something to be known. He makes the judgements and the opinions of man have no bearing on those, the critical acclaim of Abraham has no value.

It has to do with the translation and how sentences and phrases were formed to mean things back then vs now. I thought the same thing too at first but it makes sense to me now.

Your argument is blown away in the wind by countries that have government provided healthcare though, you literally just need to see it in action. USA's method's with dealing with health are the laughing stock of pretty much any first world country, but no you can just say "not all of them!" despite the most common thing that happens when this debate comes up - everyone collectively agrees the united states is a shitpile in denial that the system works

Also, it's wrong for the collective people of the united states to HAVE to pay the INSANE military budget, and a lot of people oppose it, so why then do people still have to foot that bill they disagree with? Probably because a good military is essential to a good country, but so is basic fucking healthcare especially when people have to go into debt because of something -someone else- did to them

Don't start an argument against something with "your argument is blown away by..."
Just advice, it seems kinda silly honestly. Let your arguments speak for themselves and blow away my arguments because they do just that, not because you introduce them as such.

The thing, is addressing your actual argument, is that countries with government-provided healthcare are not perfect, and that misses the point of my argument anyway. It can work, and does work, but it doesn't make it right and it doesn't mean that it's the best way it could work.
Then you attack the USA's methods, when I just told you that I don't think the US's methods have been correct before or after the Affordable Care Act happened. Neither were a true free market and neither are good. And you can call the USA the "laughing stock" of healthcare all you want, but you should know that's mostly true on websites like this. And people making fun of something has never been a good reason to think it sucks.
"not all of them!"
Why do you gotta make me sound like a child? That the truth, a lot of countries with government run healthcare don't do very well, whether you want to admit it or not. And again, many people have come to the US specifically for healthcare and then gone back home.

You can say what's common to your own experience all you and and call the US a shitpile in denial but that doesn't really do anything for your argument either.

I'm gonna make it clear again that I don't think the US's healthcare system is or was good in recent years, but it's not as bad as you and some others like to paint it. I'm supporting something entirely separate from what the US was doing beforehand so your flash-card arguments against US healthcare are really irrelevant and you haven't really addressed my actual argument.

The second part of you comment is just completely irrelevant. What does any of this have to do with the military budget? When did I ever say I endorse the military budget we have?

"especially when people have to go into debt because of something -someone else- did to them"
You know that lawsuits do exist right?

An efficient healthcare system is more important than a universal one. And private health care costs in the U.S. were often so high because 1. A private company needs to make their money back from getting the best doctors and equipment the can. 2. Because so many people assume going to the hospital will mean they end up perfectly fine, so when things don't go exactly as planned they sue. The whole idea behind the United States of America was (and hopefully still is) that people can choose to live their lives as they see fit. They can work, play, travel, wherever they please, and aren't constrained by what their social class or government says they can and can't do. Is it the perfect system? No. But that's why there's other countries. If you think France's society is better, move to France.

I'd consider agreeing with you except in every country where health care exists "free" by means of taxes, nobody minds that their taxes pay for health care, and everyone has a good quality of life in terms of things you can't control like getting injured in a hit and run.

but that's just crazy isn't it, having a country where people's overall happiness is better.
I mean did you consider the insurance you pay probably costs the same a month or less as taxes would that allow everyone to be covered?

Not everyone in all these countries are satisfied with it, and certainly not every country with "free" healthcare is well-off with it. Many are, don't get me wrong. But here in the US we've had many people come to the US from healthcare because they believe it's better here. I assume these people had money, and I in no way make the argument that the American healthcare system was perfect before the Affordable Care Act. Far from it.

My argument is that private industry and the free market tend to offer much better services more efficiently (meaning lower prices for better services) than a government. Also, it's wrong to make everyone pay for healthcare that isn't going to them. If you need certain expenses, it's your responsibility to pay for them and it's wrong to force someone else to just because they're richer (I also believe it's wrong for that rich person not to donate if they are able). And I'm not a fan of making insurance mandatory.

Healthcare is expensive, and believe me, I want everyone to have access to healthcare as much as the next guy. I just think that this isn't the right approach.
