Seeking Sabbath


Romans 15:7

Therefore welcome one another 

as Christ has welcomed you,

for the glory of God. 

~


I am finding it more and more difficult to reconcile myself

with a people claiming to be Christians

when they so obviously and vehemently

disregard the words of the bible.

We are called to love one another

we are called to forgive one another

we are called to serve one another

and we are told do not be afraid.

And yet there are those among us who would block entrance

to entire countries of people, regardless of who they are,

simply because of where they come from.

That is not biblical. 

That is not loving, forgiving, or service-filled.

It smacks of fear and hatred...

Which, by the way, pretty much sums up

the way the Romans felt about Jesus just before they crucified him.

  2. I agree that we need to be available to those in need of safety and refuge. I do think there is wisdom in making sure that we are truly focusing on letting those people in, not those who would do others in our country harm.
