A Biblical Response to Current Events – 6-20-18
What’s Happening: “There are true asylum seekers and pretenders…as least so says one law enforcement source who interviewed children whose parents have been detained for illegally crossing the border (https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/report-illegal-immigrant-children-strangely-know-very-little-about-parents/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=newsletter-CT&utm_campaign=dailypm&utm_content=conservative-tribune). ‘The law enforcement source cast doubt on the asylum claims many illegal immigrants appear to parrot, pointing out that the vast majority of those detained are actively trying to evade authorities.Only upon their detention do they offer that same exact credible fear of returning home, most of whom say the phrase in the exact same scripted way,’ says the Daily Caller’s report.”
Knee-Jerk Response: “Surely, the adults wouldn’t use innocent children as a ruse!”
Biblical Response: “Surely, they would…and do! Let’s not be naive. Good behavior is reserved for those who use a LEGAL Port of Entry. The so-called ‘no-tolerance’ policy of the Trump Administration should be the practice of all law enforcement regarding all laws…I sure don’t pay them to look the other way! Should we as Americans be compassionate toward innocent children? Absolutely! But let’s also not be hypocritical…those aborted are separated from their parents, too.
“Christians? What an opportunity! It would likely receive little media coverage, but every church in a border state ought to volunteer their facilities and care for the children of detainees….and that’s not to absolve Christian families from making their homes available long-term (Matt. 7:12).”
Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray: “Heavenly Father, help us to demonstrate our love in action…but also our discernment; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
