A Biblical Response to Current Events – 6-20-18

 

“Families”

 

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.”

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 5-18-18

 

Half-full or Half-empty

 

What’s Happening:  “A huge controversy erupted yesterday over the term ‘animals’ the media claims Trump used to label all illegal immigrants. White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, said the term ‘animals’ was probably not strong enough when labeling MS-13 gang members, to which she said the President was obviously referring (https://www.yahoo.com/news/trumps-use-animals-describe-ms-13-gang-members-wasnt-strong-enough-white-house-says-185118738.html). ‘It took an animal to stab a man 100 times and decapitate him and rip his heart out. It took an animal to beat a woman they were sex trafficking in the back, indenting part of her body. And it took an animal to kidnap, drug and rape a 14-year-old girl,’ Sarah was quoted as saying,”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “The MS-13 gang probably took the epithet as a compliment!”

 

Biblical Response:  “No doubt…it’s hard to use harsh enough terms to describe their heinous acts. They seem to show no regard for the soul and spirit, let alone the body. Then again, what do we expect from the unregenerate? The rest of the lost only show a modicum of civility because they were raised in a society that condemns violence and substitutes tolerance for love.”

 

“Christians? We see things a little more hopefully. Though the President may have expressed most people’s frustration at the gang members’ behavior, we believe change is possible – that Man, regardless of how inhumanely he may have treated others in the past, may forge a different future. Of course, none of this is possible without a spiritual rebirth.,..of which no true animal is capable..”
