A Biblical Worldview on Immigration
**Read This** The Bible is unabashedly pro-immigrant. Interesting article to take a look at. I’m not sure I agree with everything he says, and in fact, I think he goes a bit overboard. But he has some interesting points to make. Thoughts?
I’ve been thinking about illegal immigration for the past couple of months, and really wrestling with the issue of how we should respond. Should we just boot the people out of our country, or should we go the completely opposite route and award them complete amnesty. I quickly ruled out complete amnesty, due to the fact that that would not be serving justice. But I also came to the understanding that many Christians have put aside their biblical worldview in this issue, and have just been speaking Rush Limbaugh talking points. It’s not that Rush is wrong, it’s just that many of us, in our tone, come off as heartless. We come off as compassionless.
Now, what do I propose in order to fix the situation? To tell you the truth, I’m still working through it, figuring things out. One fact is, we can’t just kick 11 million people out of the country. On the other hand, it would be a terrible injustice if we just granted amnesty to all illegal aliens, whether they are from Haiti, Cuba, Mexico, Canada, Europe, or Africa. Where is the middle ground, and where should we as Christians be standing on this issue?
Here’s what we need to answer:
How should a Christian respond to this issue as a whole?
How would you fix this problem if you were put into a place of power?
There may be more questions to answer, but I think these are two of the central ones that I am wrestling with. Are you up to the task of answering them? Use the comment section or your blog, and we’ll try to figure this out as Christians, and not just as Republicans.
