Here is a take on the immigration crisis from a Christian perspective, versus the false one that the media and politicians are trying to throw at people. What would Jesus do in this case? Check it out…
You are being played.
At least that’s what liberals are attempting to do to you by taking some aspects of our Christian faith, in violation of others, to make you feel guilty when there is no reason. The “humanitarian” crisis on our southern border is just one example of the larger problem that will ultimately bankrupt America as it violates God’s order in the misguided pursuit of charity and utopia.
Yes, we do have a biblical obligation to help people, but not indiscriminately. For example, we must help true Christian widows (1 Tim 5:9-10) and orphans (James 1:27). Why? Because they don’t have families. The family is God’s social welfare program, not the government. “But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.”I Timothy 5:8
When we try to usurp the family we’re fighting against God. Building on the fanciful sand of a socialistic welfare state, not on the rock of God’s Word, is destined to fail. When families send unaccompanied minors to our borders we should treat them humanely as we immediately send them back to their families. Releasing them into our cities is a recipe for disaster. Many of them have already been exploited and will be further or turn to crime just to survive.
Our nation’s immigration policies are both realistic and compassionate, there is simply a lack of political will to enforce them. We can and should provide a refuge for people in certain extreme circumstances, such as religious persecution. But, it is cultural suicide to say to the whole world if you can get to America you can stay and live off the system. “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.” (2 Thessalonians 3:10)
Nations in order to exist must have borders, a common culture and language. God establishes and respects nations and determines their borders. “And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines.” Exodus 23:31He makes peace in your borders… Psalm 147:14“And [God] hath… appointed… the bounds of their habitation.” Acts 17:26 Only the most ideologically deluded radicals think there should be no borders.
