What does the Bible say about Christian indemnification? Is buying insurance a biblical proposition? Indeed, Should a Christian get insurance? These are questions frequently asked by many conscientious and faithful Christians. People are curious what the scriptures have to say because there are some Christians who believe that those who truly trust in God, shouldn't buy, nor do they need, insurance. They believe that it is a sign of distrusting that "God will provide," and some even equate buying insurance to a form of gambling. But while it is absolutely true that "God will provide" for His people's needs, that does not negate Christian responsibility, accountability or charge. Just because God watches over us doesn't mean that we can act recklessly or capriciously concerning our family, our lives or our finances. Would we expect God to nourish our children's bodies if we sit at home expecting bread to drop from the sky? And of course, the answer is no. Thus it is proved that
trust and faith in God does not equate to forsaking conscientious care and human responsibility.

Is Buying Insurance Biblical?

Is buying insurance Biblical? The fact is, you don't know what the future holds, and so it is the wise steward who is prepared. Because in general, we do know that there will be times of sickness and death in our family. Since everyone becomes sick at some time, and everyone eventually dies. And because we don't know exactly when, a conscientious Christian will prepare for those things that he knows will come. The Old Testament saints saved money, prepared for their deaths and oversaw the future dividing of the inheritance among their children. And they were wise stewards in doing so. They were not considered those who were lacking faith or trust in God. Preparing to leave your children the means to carry on after you are gone has nothing to do with a lack of trust in the Lord. It is simply good planning. Likewise, managing your funds for them ahead of time is the product of being a good and wise steward, and is not a lack of trust.

Luke 14:28-30

"For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish."

Thus, a Christian, saving funds for bricks, without a plan to see it to its conclusion, is seen as foolish, and not a wise trusting Christian. As I see it, the problem is that some Christians confuse trust in God with living their lives looking for miracles. We are not tasked to live irresponsibly or foolishly, without any wisdom for the future. True trust in God does not mean we make careless or reckless decisions, waiting on a miracle of God providing. For example, having trust that God will care for us does not mean that we can walk across a busy street without looking both ways, trusting that God will stop all cars. It doesn't mean that we can swim in an alligator infested river trusting God will shut the Alligator's mouth. It doesn't mean that we can walk through a neighborhood of thugs with hundred dollar bills hanging from our pockets. Because we also have the common sense and responsibility that comes with trust and faith in God. One works along with the other. Just as God is the one who truly draws people to Himself in salvation, yet He also expects Christians to go forth and work in bearing witness to the gospel that people might be saved. That's our duty. So this argument that, "if we take financial action to care for ourselves or our family, then it is a sign of a lack of trust," is fatally flawed. Having faith and trust in God does not mean that we'll never have serious sicknesses, accidents or unforeseen calamities that require additional funds. And if that is the case, then wisdom would have us prepare for that eventuality if we are able to do so. And it is not that they might come, but because sooner or later they always come. No one goes through life without sickness and/or death. And unless we are rich beyond the average soul, these both require a lot of funds we won't generally have on hand. This problem is easily alleviated with having insurance. As good Christians we need to understand that faith is not blindly going through life oblivious to our mortality and the massive expenses left behind.
