Illegal Aliens and the Corrupting of Churches


November 22, 2014

Our churches are in trouble when they adopt this perverse double-standard. This is not the Christ-like charity of the good Samaritan. This is the self-flagellation of a guilt-ridden people, hell-bent on self-destruction.

Illegal aliens, by way of their illegality, consign themselves to lives outside the true American culture.  They will join other illegals in communities where anchor immigrants have mastered the gaming of our permissive social welfare system. They come not to produce, but to take, always seeking more substance from the earners for their support, and more absolution from civil and moral authorities for their crimes.

American churches of all denominations, especially those churches which openly offer sanctuary to criminal aliens, but those as well  whose charitable works benefit communities where illegals dwell, have done this.  Catholic churches in California, Texas, Colorado and other states, as well as Baptists and other denominations, have been taking money from the federal government in preparation for the current tsunami of illegals now pouring in through the southern border. In the name of charity, the separation of church and state, a concept which protects religious bodies from the constraints and interference from the government, has dissolved into bribery.

Churches often rationalize that illegals are simply good people escaping oppression in their own countries, and that it’s understandable when they break our laws in a quest for opportunity. This is where churches let the camel into the tent by turning from moral principles and supplanting them with sentiment and expediency.

Church advocates of illegals assert that poor immigrant “seeking a better life” is by nature virtuous and has the right to take what others earn because that’s the policy Jesus would enact.  But is this attitude a moral attitude? The answer of course is no, but it goes even deeper.

People of faith who are law-abiding citizens and who contribute and tithe to their churches subsidize illegals who live opposition to the doctrines to which they try faithfully to conform.  With their  contributions they are asked to suborn their moral virtues to the vices of an entire class of people whose behavior and identity is that of criminals. 2illegal-immigrant-children-obama-dumps-on-arizona-2014

People of faith are made to feel guilty if they take umbrage at their church’s extension of charitable effort to communities where criminal aliens are harbored.  People who live lawfully may feel pressured into supporting and sustaining people who break they laws they abide and who enjoy a parasitic attachment to a system which is already supported by the taxes they pay.

If some people can break the law while others will be condemned for doing so, where are the moral absolutes, and where is the moral authority of any body that teaches such a thing?

Our churches are in trouble when they adopt this perverse double-standard. This is not the Christ-like charity of the good Samaritan. This is the self-flagellation of a guilt-ridden people, hell-bent on self-destruction.

Many people of faith have been deceived by the acts within their own churches which throw moral absolutism out the door in favor of political correctness. Churches lose their moral authority when they harbor, and pressure their members to play surrogates to, a generation of lawless aliens. These illegals are not pilgrims but are parasites who have come to take advantage of our generosity, burdening our schools, filling our prisons, and plundering state and federal social services, often amassing incomes far above those of the lawful, working American. This is a perversion of faith. This is an abdication of moral authority.

    once again you are right on! Can i just have you speak for me so I can shut up and stop fumbling what i mean to say. Keep up the great work!!

  2. Peter Philip

    1 John 3:17- But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?

    Philippians 2:4- Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

    Hebrews 13:16- Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

    James 2:14-17- What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

    Galatians 6:2- Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

    John 15:12- “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

    Proverbs 19:17- Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.

    Proverbs 22:9- Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.

    Matthew 5:42- Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.

    Romans 15:1- We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

    Matthew 10:8- Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay.

    Acts 20:35- In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

    Ephesians 4:28- Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.

    Luke 3:10-11- And the crowds asked him, “What then shall we do?” And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”

    Romans 14:13-15:13- Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother. I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself, but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean. For if your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. By what you eat, do not destroy the one for whom Christ died. So do not let what you regard as good be spoken of as evil. For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

    Wow, this is EXACTLY what Jesus would say. Here’s some choice Bible verses that I feel you should read:

    Matthew 7:1-29- “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

    1 Timothy 6:17-19- As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.
