In the current immigration debates, rather than rally around what we are against, Biblical believers must gather around a Cross that is both vertical and horizontal: It looks up to heaven and out to our fellow man. Bible-believing Americans should stand up for what God is for, rather than merely what men may be against.
God is FOR immigrants and ethnic groups everywhere: “…red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight!” Our country’s ILLEGAL immigration crisis must have solutions that are both righteous and just, for all concerned. We must balance compassion with common sense (Leviticus 19) and seek comprehensive reforms, so we all can follow the “rule of law “(Romans 13).
As redeemed people, we all are aliens in this world. For true believers, our home is in heaven; but we must reflect heaven-like standards here on earth—helping to heal communities, facilitate peace and release a biblical “ministry of reconciliation.”
