Some questions for Christians on immigrants

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Is this Christian?

I have some questions for Christians on immigrants.  What are your feelings towards and about immigrants?  Doesn’t matter if they’re legal or illegal immigrants.  By the way, in the Bible, they were called aliens.  There was nothing about legal or illegal.  Is your view Biblical?  Or is it the one put forth by our President?  I have to ask because, well, it can’t be both.  It’s one or the other. And you know what Jesus said about things that came down to one of two choices.

Some questions for Christians on immigrants

Does God want to punish us?

Does God want to punish us?

Does God want to punish us?  The answer is really simple.  No – God does not want to punish us.  It’s been a long time since I felt that way, but I do still remember feeling like He does indeed wait for a reason to do it.  Actually, that’s really messed up – because the one waiting to try to get God to punish us is Satan.  You know – the devil.


Universalism – Is everyone really going to Heaven?

Is everyone really going to Heaven?  That’s what Universalism teaches.  Maybe.  Sort of.  It’s probably what “Universalists” believe.  But is that really what Universalism teaches?  It’s not unlike the question of what Christians believe as opposed to what Christ actually taught.

How Much Of The Unobservable Universe Will We Be Able To See?

How Much Of The Unobservable Universe Will We Be Able To See?

How Much Of The Unobservable Universe Will We Be Able To See?  Sounds like a trick question, doesn’t it?  Actually, I left something out.  The headline from the Forbes article is: How Much Of The Unobservable Universe Will We Someday Be Able To See?  Now you’ve got it, right?  It’s about technology. Or is it?


Is Islam right about Christians believing in three “gods”? Monotheism vs. Polytheism.

Is Islam right about Christians believing in three “gods”?  That may seem like a strange question.  Some people say that Christians and Muslims believe in the same “God”.  Others say no.  However, the Qur’an says that Christians and Jews believe in more than one “God”.  It’s a question of monotheism versus polytheism.  One God versus multiple gods.  But who’s right?  Do Christians believe in three “gods”?

the cross - where is forgiveness

Where is forgiveness? – ISIS bride’s father sues Trump administration.

The Headline:  Alabama ISIS bride’s father sues Trump administration over citizenship, seeks her return.  Trump says no.  My question for someone who claims to have done so much for Christians – where is forgiveness? Mt 6:14 “For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”Yeah – that forgiveness.


Pope Francis signs peace declaration on ‘Human Fraternity’ with Grand Imam

Pope Francis signs peace declaration on ‘Human Fraternity’ with Grand Imam

Pope Francis signs peace declaration on ‘Human Fraternity’ with Grand Imam.  Really.  The Pope and a Grand Imam.  Agreeing on the “Human” Fraternity”.  At first glance, this is shocking.  On second glance, after reading the article from The Catholic Herald, it’s still shocking.  After reading comments from North Catholic Texas, on third glance, it’s still shocking.

Now, it’s time to really look into exactly what’s going on here. 


Is teaching the Bible in public schools a good idea?

Is teaching the Bible in public schools a good idea?  I dare say, most non-Christians answer that question with a great bog “No!”  But what about Christians?  Do Christians think it’s a good idea for public schools to teach the Bible?  For what it’s worth, President Trump and the Supreme Court of the U.S. both say it’s at least legal.  And while the legal issues play a bog part in the discussion, that’s not my question.  My question for Christians to pray about and answer is whether or not it’s a good idea.

persecution of Christians shown by stoning of wooden figure

Persecution of Christians in Mexico – #39 in world

We see that the U.S. and western Europe are not on the list of the top 50 countries where Christians are persecuted.
But Mexico is.  Given the prevalence (I thought) of Catholics in Mexico, that surprised me.
