Big bucks for EpiPens

Like some TV preachers, the maker of life-saving EpiPens, Mylan, is bringing in big bucks.  Mylan has been strongly criticized for continually raising the price for a two-pack set of EpiPens.  It is now more than $600, which is 600 percent higher than the $100 that it cost in 2008.

Do they need to raise the cost to keep from going broke? Hardly! News reports have said that Mylan has already made more than a billion dollars off of EpiPens.

EpiPens are truly amazing and life-saving. Ever since I was stung by some yellow jackets about 3 years ago and had an allergic reaction, I have been carrying an EpiPen. I appreciate that it can save my life. However, is it right for a company to continue to escalate the price of something that many people depend on for their very life?

The living, resurrected Jesus Christ is like an EpiPen. Keeping Him always with you will save your life. And unlike EpiPens, His price doesn’t continually go up. You don’t have to fork over more and more money to TV preachers or religious organizations in order to carry Jesus always with you. His cost has already been paid.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
