A Christian Perspective on Illegal Immigration (Season 2 Episode 12)
A Christian Perspective on Illegal Immigration . Immigration, especially illegal immigration, is currently a major controversial issue in our culture. How should a Christian view immigration in light of what the Bible says? How would Jesus respond to illegal immigration? What does the Bible say about how we should treat refugees from other countries?
In this podcast, Dr. Richard Caldwell and special guest Stuart Sanders discuss the importance of loving immigrants and showing compassion towards them, remembering that we as Christians are also strangers and exiles in this world. They also underscore the importance of submitting to our nation’s governing authorities, respecting immigration laws, and recognizing and protecting our borders.
But how can we do both? Where’s the balance between defending our borders and welcoming strangers? Is there a difference in the way we should treat an illegal immigrant, and the way we should treat a desperate refugee from an oppressed country? What would be a christian perspective on illegal Immigration ? These questions and more are addressed in this brief podcast, as Dr. Richard Caldwell and Stuart Sanders take us to God’s Word.
