Obama has issued the first of what we can expect to become many executive orders granting amnesty to illegal aliens. By doing this without an act of Congress, Obama has declared himself to be the first king of America since we declared our independence from George III in the 18th century. No Christian can support amnesty because this is an act of lawlessness and defiance against God.
Sadly, there are a number of wolves in Evangelical clothing in America who are claiming that amnesty is the proper biblical approach to immigration. They cite half-truths from the Bible and claim that the decent, loving, Christian thing to do is support amnesty and welcome the illegal aliens in with open arms and open wallets. These are lies from the pit of hell and we hope to debunk their arguments using Scripture.
First, is it biblical for nations to have borders?
Yes, it is. Deuteronomy 32:8:
“When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.”
God divided the peoples of the earth as part of His plan and purpose, and he established the bounds (the nations’ borders) as part of that plan.
Why did God do this? Acts 17:26-27:
“And He hath made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation, that they should seek the Lord, if perhaps they might feel after Him and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us.”
God’s purpose in the division of peoples and the establishment of national borders is declared here in the New Testament. National borders, by their very design, are established so that God’s people will “seek the Lord.”
Having a strong border for a Christian nation such as America leads to our country having a stronger relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
If strong borders lead to a stronger Christian nation, what do weak or non-existent borders then do? They take us further away from God and He therefore allows us to wallow in the muck and mire of a sinful world, electing leaders like the blue-dress Clintons and Muslim Obamas to rule over us.
Who is it that seeks to weaken the nations? Isaiah 14:12:
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, who didst weaken the nations!”
God’s plan is for nations to have strong national borders so that we might seek after Him. Satan’s plan is to weaken the nations and we know that biblically, weakening our borders through amnesty and other shenanigans in Washington, D.C. accomplishes this goal for Satan.
Therefore, Obama’s efforts in favor of open-border amnesty are quite LITERALLY the works of the devil.
No Christian can support amnesty!
But what about all of the commands in the Bible about being kind to “strangers?” Aren’t those strangers immigrants?
Our answer to this question is found in the Ten Commandments, in Exodus 20:9-10″
“Six days shalt thou labor and do all thy work; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God. In it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates.”
In this commandment, and in all other passages in the Bible which reference the “stranger” or immigrant, the stranger is subject to the national laws of Israel. If they did not obey the laws, they were subject to punishment under those laws.
We have “strangers” in America today who fit that biblical definition. They are referred to as LEGAL immigrants. The follow the laws of our nation to come here and abide by the laws to remain here.
Illegal aliens are invaders who seek to steal our jobs, our wealth, our health care, our educational system and more. Some of them are here to rob, rape and murder our citizens. Some of them are killing our children by driving around drunk. These are not the “strangers” who Christians are commanded to show kindness and love.
The people of faith in this country must have the courage to rise up and speak out against Obama’s hellish amnesty plot to destroy America. Christians must pressure Congress to use the power of the purse to defund Obama’s amnesty. If Congress refuses to pay for the new green cards, work permits, social security cards and other paperwork for illegal aliens, Obama’s amnesty cannot happen.
Leaders like House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are afraid of this plan because it will work. They’re arguing that defunding amnesty will lead to “government shutdown.”
If there is a government shutdown, so what? The military and other necessary things will still continue to function. 95% of what our government is currently paying for is pork and foreign handouts. If the government shuts down for a short time, our economy will actually improve during that time.
