Okay, so that’s a convoluted title, but stay with me on this. It’s actually a short smorgasbord of subjects the so-called media either doesn’t want to discuss or will totally obfuscate and misdirect when they do.
So, to start, let’s take a look at the Winter Olympics being held in Pyeonchang, South Korea. The media (D) is practically wetting themselves over the N. Korean cheerleaders and the sister of Kim Jong Un. The focus is on a cheer leader squad of 200 women who are cheering as if their lives depended on it…because it does. Let’s not focus on what kind of place N. Korea actually is.
Am I the only person who sees the parallel between these current winter Olympics and the 1936 Summer Olympics that were held in Berlin, during the time Germany was run by the Nazis? Two years later, 1938, Time Magazine named Adolph Hitler as their Man of the Year. Granted, Hitler was named “man of the year” because the criteria for selection had to do with world-wide influence rather than good versus evil. Nonetheless, the focus in both instances has more to do with public relations these regimes are managing to get across than about how the countries in question are treating their own citizens. If it’s anti-American and evil, the media loves it.
The ongoing headache that is our immigration system has been focused entirely on DACA and the so-called (criminal) “dreamers”.
I’d like to point something out that a lot of Christians have probably heard since this entire debate started. The Parable of the Good Samaritan has been preached endlessly as a means to get Christians compliant with liberal lawlessness. However, take a closer look at that particular section of scripture found in Luke 10:30-37. Without quoting it here, what you actually find in the verses mentioned is that while the Samaritan did personally help the wounded man beaten by robbers, what he didn’t do was take the man to his own home. Instead, he took him to an inn and told the inn keeper that he would pay for the man’s care. He didn’t take the wounded man to his own home, thus potentially endangering himself, his family, or even his community. No, he took him to a public setting where a paid professional (for that era) would care for him. While the Samaritan offered financial assistance, his involvement was limited. The point is that you can help someone without necessarily endangering yourself.
Most of us have also no doubt heard this: “Well, Christ himself was a refugee once.” Okay, that’s true. The particular instance here is found in the second chapter of Matthew. Starting in v.12-15, Joseph had a dream in which an angel of the Lord told him to take Mary and the infant Jesus to Egypt. Herod was committing infanticide by slaughtering all the newborn male baby’s, as found in verses 16-18. After Herod’s death, the angel of the Lord once again appeared to Joseph and told him to take his family back to Israel, as found in v. 19-23.
There are three things to consider regarding the “refugee” status of Christ as found in these verses. 1.) It was an “angel of the Lord” who directed Joseph to take his family and flee. Joseph didn’t do it on his own volition and probably didn’t think it was a good idea with a new born in the first place. 2.) Only Joseph, Mary, and Jesus were to leave. Not Joseph and several million of his friends and their extended families. And, 3.) …they didn’t stay. They went back home when the danger had passed. In other words, they didn’t attach themselves to the Egyptian welfare tit. They left. Their “refugee status” didn’t turn into a permanent living arrangement.
The mainstream media and liberal Christians will never admit this. If you want to further study a form of Biblical immigration policy, look up the word “Sojourner” and run the Old Testament scriptures where the word is found. Briefly (because space will not allow for a long discussion here) a Sojourner would be the same as a legal immigrant, under Jewish law in the O.T. While foreigners were welcome among the Jews, they were nonetheless expected to obey the Jewish laws. While they couldn’t partake of all the feast days and holy days, they were subject to the same punishment for breaking the law as if they were Jews. In short, foreigners among the Jews were welcome, but they had to assimilate.
Along with the ongoing brouhaha about immigration, we have the controversy of building a wall on our southern border with Mexico. Of course, the Media (D) says it’s racist. Never mind we have video of liberal leaders such as Bill Clinton and Dianne Feinstein saying we need a wall. But, that was then…this is now, or whatever. Even the Pope, behind the walls of the Vatican, has said we should welcome illegals.
Let’s not mention the entire book of Nehemiah and the walls of Jerusalem, and for that matter, let’s ignore Rev. 21:12 (a little something about the walls of Heaven.)
A lot of what the Media (D) will not tell you boils down to this. Liberals hate America, along with American and Christian values. We’re constantly reminded what a racist, misogynistic, homophobic, patriarchal, Islamophobic… (along with other …ism’s and phobias I’m probably forgetting at the moment) kind of an awful country we truly are. BUT…they want everyone to come here. Why? If we’re such a hate infested hell-hole run by Hitler wannabees…why come here? (Could it be…votes?)
Anyway, in closing…what WOULD Jesus do?
I don’t think it’s out of the question to buy weapons for protection (Luke 22:36), or perhaps even a display of righteous anger (involving a whip). (John 2:13-17 and Matthew 21:12)
