Immigration Debate

September 05, 2006

Jim Evans has an excellent column today on immigration entitled “On Jesus And Keeping The Rules.” Here are a couple of highlights:

You can check this for yourself, but I am quite sure that Jesus never said that we are called to care only for the least of these who are legally in our midst. And while we are at it, he also said nothing about caring only for the deserving poor, or only the innocent in prison, or only those who are sick through no fault of their own.

And for all those who champion the idea that America is a Christian nation, what does it mean if it turns out that we have laws and rules in our society that Jesus would most certainly break if he was with us now. And I wonder what we would do to him when he did it.
An excellent point for us to consider!
