What should a Christian think and do about illegal immigration?

Guest: Kerby Anderson, president, Probe Ministries

“Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God” (Romans 13:1-2).

“For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in” (Matthew 25:35).

Millions of immigrants, including tens of thousands unaccompanied children, have illegally crossed our border into the United States.  Some are fleeing violence in their home country.  Some want a better life and economic opportunity in the United States.

So what is our country to do?  Send them back to their own country? Grant them citizenship or work permits?  Build a border fence?  And what should a Christian think and do about illegal immigration?  The Bible says we are to obey the law (Romans 13), but also that we should take care of the stranger (Matthew 25)

Even amongst professing Christians, there are many opinions on illegal immigration.  Some think it’s wrong to even call them “illegal” or “aliens” because our immigration laws and past conquests of border land are illegal.  Others see this issue in terms of government’s duty to protect its citizens and provide a stable society.  Still others see illegal immigration as an opportunity to show the love of Christ through caring for those in need.

Kerby Anderson, president of Probe Ministries and radio host for Point of View, will join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to discuss illegal immigration.  Kerby lives in Texas, a border state on the front lines of this issue.

What’s a Christian response to illegal immigration?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

For years, millions of immigrants have been illegally crossing our borders, including recently 60,000 unaccompanied children.

Immigration is a complex issue with political, constitutional, national security, economic, racial, theological, and historical implications.

The Bible says that all people are made in the image of God.  Each has an equal and valuable soul.  And we are to help those in need.

And yet, we must balance that with the biblical role of government to promote a good and stable society. When our nation secures its borders and implements a wise immigration system, then we can focus on welcoming and sharing the love of Christ with those coming here.

This weekend, we’ll discuss Hollywood’s impact on society.

“Finally Free – Fighting for Purity With the Power of Grace” by Heath Lambert “Finally Free – Fighting for Purity With the Power of Grace” by Heath Lambert

Pornography is everywhere and impacting almost everyone. According to a Covenant Eyes study, “One out of eight searches on the Internet is for erotic content, more than 50% of boys and nearly a third of girls see their first pornographic images before they turn 13, and 50% of all Christian men and 20% of all Christian women say they are addicted to pornography.” Statistics are one thing, but the sexual immorality and ruined marriages that result from viewing pornography are the real-world, soul-crushing...

5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders? 5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders?

1. Realize that no man and no ministry is infallible or beyond accountability.  “Celebrity Christians” are saved sinners like everyone else and are under the same standards of God as everyone else. 2. Learn from three or more sound teachers, not just one.  Avoid being a “fan” of just one man or ministry. 3. Prioritize being a part of your local church.  This is where God has designed us to be taught, have fellowship, take communion, and pray (Acts 2:41-41). 4. Be like the...

How do we find God’s will in decisions when the Bible doesn’t give an explicit answer? How do we find God’s will in decisions when the Bible doesn’t give an explicit answer?

1. Does the Bible say anything explicitly or by implicitly about the decision you’re facing? For example, the Bible is clear that a Christian should not marry a non-Christian.  (1 Corinthians 7:39 A wife is bound as long as her husband lives; but if her husband is dead, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.) 2. Abide in Christ.   John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”  In other words, the closer...
