Foreign immigration, especially regarding so-called “refugees” and Sanctuary Cities, is a topic now of legal battles and violent street demonstrations. Oh how the liberal media, education gurus and compromised politicians are roused to contempt and seething hatred for President Trump and his action to halt this insane immigration flow. Never mind that immigration is one of the big reasons the people voted Mr. Trump into office. Most realize this country is at the brink of national suicide because of these globalist policies. But it’s just not the secular forces that try to stand in the way of a needed reversal of policy – it’s the modern-day religious opinion leaders such as Christianity Today.
What passes for “Christianity” in America is utterly shameful. So-called “Christian” leaders and opinion makers openly and proudly declare the virtues of racial integration and equality as the reason why they support and promote foreign immigration. Their unbiblical theology has done more to create a racially and culturally-mixed country since at least 1965 than all the government, business and education policies and edicts put together. Let’s call it for what it is: Judaic, Talmudic, Communist “Christianity”.
Immigration and Christianity Today
Periodically I receive an online magazine called Christianity Today. In the most recent issue, there were several articles denouncing President Trump’s anti-immigration order. One article was by the Editor in Chief, Mark Galli, entitled, “A Psalm for the Refugee Crisis in America.” He starts out quoting Psalm 37:1-4, implying Mr. Trump as one who is “evil” and “who do wrong.” He goes on to add:
“It nearly goes without saying that the sweeping, ill-planned, and draconian order about refugees, to use the psalmist’s words, constitutes a wrong… But even many conservatives are calling Trump’s move ‘wrong.’ I agree with Brenden O’Neill at the libertarian rag spiked, ‘It is the lowest form of gesture politics: the swipe of a pen intended to demonstrate all-American strength, yet really signaling a stunning disregard for the American spirit of liberty and tradition of providing a home for the repressed of the globe.’ ”
America “a home for the repressed of the globe”? If it isn’t obvious by now that modern “Christian” voices are just another mouthpiece of propaganda for “no borders” and unfettered globalism, I don’t know what is. Galli continues his nauseating diatribe:
“This is the awfulness of what has happened this weekend: Trump has exposed his authoritarian streak, and the left has exposed its inability to oppose such authoritarianism in a real, connecting, positive way. We have the theatre of Trump’s strongman act, and the hysteria of a radical take on the politics of fear. Between theatre and hysteria, there has got to be something else: reason, perhaps, and principle, and a true, fear-free moral case for liberty.
“Those who have been set free in Christ are, of all people, passionate about making a ‘moral case for liberty,’ not just for ourselves but for those fleeing oppressive tyranny.” – Mark Galli, ChristianityToday.com, January 30, 2017
“Reason,” “principle” and a “moral case for liberty” – it sounds righteous but it is only misplaced altruism.
Another article, “6 Things Your Church Can Do During The Refugee Ban,” encourages churches to get involved by supporting “refugee resettlements agencies” like World Relief, Lutheran World Relief, and Church World Services, and also by helping refugees overseas with funds and volunteer work. – ChristianityToday.com
If others want to go over to another country and help out, I have no problem with that. As a matter of fact, why don’t these kumbaya, nauseating, altruistic “Christians” go all the way. Why not take the refugees already here and bring them into their own homes, feed them, clothe them and whatever. Don’t just place them in some taxpayer funded Sanctuary City or the like for someone else to take care of. No, no. Take them all into your homes and show them Christian compassion.
To Christianity Today and all those other stupid “Christians” I say, “Put your money where your mouth is. If you don’t, you’re nothing but a bunch of worthless charlatans.”
On the Path to National Suicide
Christianity Today challenges the “misinformation” on immigration and counsels us to “get the facts.” Are they denying the crime that goes on in those Sanctuary Cities? Many of them are now considered “no go” zones – even the police stay away.
What about the rapes that take place? How about the economic toll on Americans to support these foreigners.
“Immigration effectively redistributes half a trillion dollars from U.S. workers to the businesses that hire immigrants each year, Harvard economist and immigration and wages expert George Borjas testified before Congress Wednesday.
“Based on a supply and demand model, Borjas found an increased supply of immigrants competing in the U.S. job market does produce a net gain for current U.S. workers of about $50 billion a year. But that small gain in the context of an $18 trillion economy is far outweighed by a transfer of wealth from U.S. workers to the businesses that hire those immigrants that amounts to $500 billion dollars.
“ ‘What immigration really does is not so much increase the pie, as redistribute the wealth,’ Borjas testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest. ‘So what I’ve learned from all this is that immigration happens to come out to be just another government redistribution program.’ ” – Rachel Stolzfoos, Daily Caller, March 16, 2016, AmRen.com
Ah. Redistribution. Code word for Communism. Is that what Christianity Today is advocating? Yes!
How about the costs of welfare for immigrants?
“In September 2015, the Center for Immigration Studies published a landmark study of immigration and welfare use, showing that 51 percent of immigrant-headed households used at least one federal welfare program — cash, food, housing, or medical care — compared to 30 percent of native households. Following similar methodology, this new study examines the dollar cost of that welfare use.” – Jason Richwine, PhD, National Review, May 2016, CIS.org, The Cost of Welfare Use By Immigrant and Native Households
You can find the rest of the economic statistics from The Center for Immigration Studies article.
Let’s briefly discuss Sanctuary Cities. In a recent article, Tom Tancredo documents the cost of over 300 Sanctuary Cities costing State and local taxpayers over $7,000,000,000 annually. That’s over 7 Billion Dollars! But that’s not all:
“…the fact that local governments hide these cost figures is symptomatic of the deeper problem. Too many local officials want all the political benefits of claiming to be the protector of ‘our immigrant community’ while hiding the costs of protecting criminal aliens.” – Tom Tancredo, Breitbart.com, January 28, 2017, “Tancredo: Over 300 Sanctuary Cities Are Costing State and Local Taxpayers over $7,000,000,000 Annually”
In other words, taxpayers, the productive citizens, shoulder the financial burden of immigrants in order to feed, clothe, house and protect the “criminal aliens.”
What God Has Said
Racial and cultural immigration and integration are unbiblical. God has called His holy covenant People to be a separate People. Mixing is not of God. It does not, and never will work.
“Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate, says the Lord. And do not touch what is unclean; and I will welcome you.” – II Corinthians 6:17
This is not just about preserving the racial and spiritual heritage of God’s chosen (and they aren’t the “Jews”), it is about how God created things and His plan to manifest His Kingdom. God has a clear purpose, plan and order. And that plan does not include racial integration and equality.
Christianity Today and modern “Christian” thinking is based on satanic theology and not the Holy Scriptures. So, get educated and commit to learn what the Bible actually says and means. A great starting place is the Covenant Heritage Series.
“I am the Lord your God … You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generation of those who hate Me.” – Exodus 20:2-5
“For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.” – Deuteronomy 7:6
