Oh mercy! It’s been a long day! Nevertheless, our work must go on.
I want to talk a little bit about why it’s so necessary that we secure our borders. As I mentioned in the previous post “What is The Responsibility of a President?” while, “from a Christian perspective, we pray for peace, and proclaim the Gospel of peace, the reality of war remains.”
As Christians we’re not supposed to hate Muslims, and I certainly don’t hate Muslims. The Bible tells me what I should and should not do… “But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. “Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.… Luke 6:27 – 29
That is what Jesus says for His people to do. And we really don’t live in much different times than what Jesus endured. Christ’s followers were persecuted much the same as they are today. Although, on a much broader scale now, maybe, than they were then. But it’s still the same thing. In fact, one of the greatest men of God to ever live was the Apostle Paul, but before he became a follower of Christ, he persecuted the Church (God’s people) just as any other non-believer has, he in fact, was one of those who helped to stone Stephen to death. Until God came to him on the road to Damascus, and struck him with blindness, and helped him to see the error of his ways.
No nation has ever been secure without the protection of God, but that protection also meant the willingness of that nation to obey God. That being said, I am under the firm conviction that America has turned away from God, and is therefore, very vulnerable to being taken over by another nation. God allowed the Babylonians to come and destroy the Israelite nation for example.
God also had rules when it came to His own people to go to war … when He told Joshua to go into the land of Canaan, for example, He told Joshua, when you go in, you leave no one, the men, the women, the children, and even their livestock, slaughter them all. Of course, that’s just paraphrasing, but you get the point nonetheless.
So, when we go to war, should we pick and choose who lives, and who dies? Or should we go to war with the mindset of, utter, and total victory? I would think utter and total victory! I don’t know, really! I’m not a 5 star general of the United States Armed Forces. I’m just going on what war was like in Old Testament times, and what God required of armies then, as opposed to now.
For the powers that currently exist in our United States government, they are not fighting back against the foreign powers for one simple reason, because they are on the side of the foreign powers. It’s really that simple. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out.
Another really simple thing to add into the mix, is the proposition that our borders should be secured because here in AMERICA, we live relatively prosperous lives, we love our families, our friends, and loved ones. Although, it is not far fetched to say that, in many respects, our families have been torn apart through the social engineering programs in our public schools, and also through the media and entertainment industries, but overall, but overall, we live relatively peaceful, happy, prosperous lives here in America. And who wants their liveliehood torn apart? I can’t think of too many! So, it’s an issue of national importance to secure the borders, because we have enemies that want to dismantle our whole way of life, and to murder us.
The media pundits like O’Reilly et al might dislike the idea of stopping the inflow of Muslims into our country, but you can bet your top button that his work building is on some ISIS hit list masquerading as a “Syrian refugee.” So, why not profile the inflow of Syrian refugees Mr. O’Reilly? Anything wrong with that?
No, I don’t hate Muslims, but I do hate their actions, and I refuse their doctrines, because when you go butchering human beings, and blowing up buildings, and other such violence, you don’t serve the same Savior that I serve! My God is a God of love, peace, and mercy!
