CLARITY – 4-3-18 Safety is Costly

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 4-3-18

 

Safety is Costly

 

What’s Happening:  “If you thought the ‘Caravan’ referred to a Dodge, you were partially correct, but it’s not the American car brand…rather, it’s over 1,200 migrants trying to ‘dodge’ the U.S.’s LEGAL asylum system and gain admission to the U.S. by joining up with Alex Mensing’s Pueblos Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders) group. It’s not sitting so well with Trump’s CBP (http://5newsonline.com/2018/04/01/immigrant-caravan-heading-to-us-mexico-border-sparks-trumps-concern/).  Trump tweeted, ‘Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. ‘Caravans’ coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL,’”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Everybody deserves a safe home.”

 

Biblical Response:  “Really? I can’t even find that in the Bible. In fact, the only ‘safe’ home Man ever knew (the Garden of Eden) he got kicked out of (Gen. 3:22-24). The right to ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness’ is not in the Constitution (it’s in the Declaration of Independence). It is listed as an ‘inalienable’ right, but it also said that ‘to secure these rights’ governments are formed; that includes the governments of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador from whence the majority of these refugees hail. Our rights were secured by the blood of patriots. Why not theirs?”

 

“Christians? Sacrifice is always the cost of freedom (John 8:36; Rom. 5:8). I’m afraid if the refugees are willing to make the sacrifice of the trek, we may be taking them from a sacrifice for which their heritage back in their respective homes will reap great benefits, We certainly have.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to champion the right causes, not fight battles that shouldn’t be won; in  Jesus’ Name, amen.” © Alan E.Sargent
