Immigration Reform

A quick aside about this story: http://america.aljazeera.com/opinions/2014/7/central-americanchildrenrefugeesguatemalaimmigration.html

“When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 19:33-34

Let’s not pick and choose arbitrarily which parts of the OT we wish to support, just because one verse rather than other supports our preconceived political notions.

What would Christ have us do?

That’s the question we, as Christians, should ask when considering how to politically handle this new and difficult influx of child immigrants from Central America. We can make a difference in not only what we support politically, but how we support it.
