CLARITY – 11-20-18 The Gray Area is Not Gray

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 11-20-18

The Grey Area is Not Gray

 

What’s Happening: “A Judge has ordered that asylum seekers don’t have to go to official ports of entry to be legal…nullifying Trump’s Executive Order to the contrary. Maybe this will give new hope to the caravan…maybe the order will be appealed…hopefully, Congress will bring this up (https://www.yahoo.com/news/legal-groups-argue-court-against-trump-asylum-ban-193608107.html). ‘Whatever the scope of the President’s authority, he may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden,’ said Obama appointee Judge Tigar.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “I guess there is no gray area…an asylum seeker can enter anywhere.”

 

Biblical Response:  “Yep…according to the judge…which may be why a wall gets approved. The Congress may be in a “lame duck” session, but till the new Congress gets sworn in…and there’s a funding bill coming…the Republicans still have the Legislative and the Executive. I wonder what they’ll do with it.”

 

“Christians? Oh, we believe in immigration…after all, we are ‘aliens’ ourselves (John 18:36). And we have been left here to make a difference. However, we have also been called to obey the laws of the land…whether we agree with them or not (Tit. 3:1). Of course, there is a higher authority and a higher law (Acts 4:19-21).”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, while we want to be merciful we don’t want our grace to exceed Your purposes…give us wisdom; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
