I heard Father Morris, a regular FOX contributor, say something very interesting about IMMIGRATION and the role of CHRISTIANS. I’m putting it in quotes but I’m paraphrasing:
“The Good Samaritan story tells us how we should help all those in need. The other side of that story is we have a responsibility to keep our own people safe. ….When I was little and all 7 of us kids were in the car, Dad would pick up hitchhikers, though Mom was against it. Sometimes he’d get close to a hitchhiker and decide he shouldn’t pick that one up and he’d just drive by.”
As the FOX interviewers responded, he added this but it barely got heard “….what might be important to also mention is that I don’t think Dad would have picked anyone up today.”
I thought that was a terrific answer to the challenge we Christians face in the wake of being called uncaring for not helping, for not allowing in, every illegal immigrant coming to our shores.
What do you think?
ALSO: Please say a prayer for Norma McCorvey, or JANE ROE of Roe v Wade, which made abortions up to 3 months legal. She has passed away at the age of 69. After abortion was made legal, she became a Christian, confessed that her pregnancy was not a rape, and worked against abortion for the rest of her life. She also then became a Roman Catholic and, again, worked harder than ever to protect the sanctity of life which the court decision in her case ignored. This was a woman of courage and her turning to faith, which also turned her from her lesbian lover only to become “only friends” for the rest of their lives, is inspiring.
Proverbs 3:7 “Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear* the LORD, and depart from evil.
* ‘fear’ is often used and mistaken to mean BE SCARED OF GOD and many old Hebrew translations use ‘awe’ of the Lord in this kind of scripture. Amen.
Have a beautiful Sunday! And, another story: please pray for HER. I know how she feels. Have Kleenex close by.
