We can never solve the world's problems by bringing third world immigrants
HERE. We must go THERE and teach them.All we are doing this way is filling
the pews with immigrants because our own members stay home on Sunday.Once
churches realize that the goal is salvation, not attendance, then they will stop
supporting amnesty, pack their bags, and travel to the poor nations of the
world. That's where improvement comes.Just analyze your retention
rates and you will know it is true.
It seems that when the amnesty side talk about immigration reform that the only
part that matters is the legalization part. The border security part seems to
be of no importance to them. I wonder if these numbers will change when more
people begin to see what happens when thousands of illegals rush the border
making it look like the end of a college football game when the home team upsets
the champions. If any American wants to have a valid opinion on immigration
reform, they must watch, see, and admit that our southern border is completely
out of control. The enforcement part must be an equal part of any immigration
reform law. And it must be enforced, not just passed and ignored, like has
happened before. That is the crux of the whole immigration debate now. And
until it is addressed, no action about legalization can be considered.
Otherwise the United States will have no sovereignty left and will be seen as
nothing more than the welfare office to the north.
Acts 17:26And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on
all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and
the bounds of their habitation.Love is sending people down the path
of righteousness; rewarding illegal/dishonest behavior is not love.I
have found that some clergy support the open border concept (amnesty-including
letting people stay and work.) but their members don't. Polls I have read
show the same conclusion. If they truly want compassion, and to stop
families from separating themselves, they should be fighting for enforcement of
the laws. We have thousands of children being sent across our borders right now
from Central and South America. Who's to blame? The clergy, business, and
anyone else that supports amnesty. If they really want to stop this, their need
to go after the business community (including their members) and demand
enforcement of our laws. They are failing the children brought here today, with
the promise of little enforcement.
Almost everyone is in favor of good things. Now specifically define "good
things" as encompassed in immigration reform. In many people's minds
immigration reform is another term for open borders.
I wonder how the religious groups feel about 90 million Americans unemployed or
underemployed?I wonder if the religious groups are willing to absorb
the costs associated with 30 million low income illegal trespassers?I strongly suspect this is yet ANOTHER "poll" put out by the amnesty
lobby. One explicitly designed to skew the "results" to what they
want.More inexpensive labor.
Compassion, and taking care of one's brothers and sisters is a common
thread among religions.That is admirable.But, in their
zeal to do good deeds, the religious groups supporting amnesty (despite being
given the cover name of "immigration reform") overlook the absolute fact
that the long term destruction from disregard of our laws will cause far more,
and worse, problems than it will solve.If they really love their
fellow man, these religious groups should encourage everyone to follow the law,
emigrate here properly, and enjoy the blessings of freedom, including the
freedom of religion.However, some are so eager to demonstrate how
loving and tolerant they are, that they will take the devil's deal of
amnesty now and disaster later.
