Exactly what does that mean that is okay to separate children from their parents in a country it is built on immigrants the question is walking another man moccasins
The following was posed to me as I shared my contempt for the image attached to this post of Joseph, Mary and Jesus being placed in a cage by a misguided "church" in Indianapolis. Let me share, once again, my testimony shared on many occasions at an event called the great banquet:
In 2004, I broke down the door of my ex-mother-in-law because they held my son from me against my will. I tried the law to help me less than 24 hours earlier and they failed me! So, I took matters into my own hands and was arrested for weeks: SEPARATED FROM MY SON!
My church did not put out a display like this to have me freed! Why? They understood that I broke the law and had to go through the process of being reunited with my son (which did not happen for another seven months)!
So, this display is very simple: Apples and Oranges! It’s not even on the correct scale for the fake indignation taking place. People have been manipulated into manufactured rage by the media.
Where was this indignation from the media and everyone else when Obama did the same with over 90,000 illegal immigrants? I posted a video yesterday of Obama speaking out the same against illegal immigration and not one bleeding heart came out against it. But this manufactured rage against Trump is so blatant and disgusting that we will all stand before the Throne and answer for our favoritism.
Before I am dismissed as a blinded-by-love-conservative, pay attention to everything I’ve written over that last few years! I wasn’t a fan of Trump and I’m barely a fan now. But I’m doing the very thing that everyone who needs him to be racist is doing: I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt and respecting my leader like Romans 13 says. You know, the very thing Christian people were declaring when Obama was president.
When another Christian named Joe Brown can come on my timeline and attack me for calling out inconsistencies; call Obama his president but cannot say the same from Trump, I know we are in trouble! The media had pictures of immigrants from 2014 through 2016 and passed it off as Trump’s mess. I see no protests hunting down Obama or his staff to kick them out of restaurants for separating families.
Did I have an issue with Obama? Most definitely! But it wasn’t about his color and it wasn’t because I was a conservative! I’ll even go further: IT WAS NOT BECAUSE I WAS THE UNCLE TOM THAT LEADERSHIP AT NEW LIFE COMMUNITY CHURCH CALLED ME! He was the most racist president in my lifetime and the worst against Christian values by promoting socialism aka the legalization of covetousness.
Every time a Black person was hurt, shot or killed by a White person: Obama was right to the podium (and a pulpit in one situation to sing a song)! But when a White person was killed by a Black person, a Muslim or illegal immigrant; he was nowhere to be found. And the excuse I got for it: "It’s been happening for a long time the other way around, it’s time to balance things out!"
Really? And people got mad about FoxNews saying they were fair and balanced???? Let’s ignore FoxNews for now and look at the Word of God:
If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself," you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors. For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become guilty of all of it. For he who said, "Do not commit adultery," also said, "Do not murder." If you do not commit adultery but do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty. For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. - James 2:8-13
I’m glad you wrote that!🤪
Showing favoritism is abhorred by God. But, in both political camps, we have chosen the side of politics to find our purpose and meaning over the mandates of the Word of God. Judgment without mercy also applies to OUR President Donald Trump. Would you not agree? And if Obama can be forgiven of his failures of leadership, why not Trump? If you want to go down this rabbit hole, be sure to include the paths and lives of every preceding President. If not, hypocrisy abounds!
Let me not leave this immigration issue. My parents are from Haiti! In the 70s and 80s, immigration was feared more that the IRS and God! I saw Haitians and Hispanics fleeing like cockroaches when those officials were around. No outrage then! Carter and Reagan were presidents. The news was silent. Actually, they reported news back then over the biased commentaries of late.
So, do I know about the life of immigrants? Yes! And my mother flew back and forth from Haiti many times and they let her back into the country because she did things correct. In fact, they flew me and my brother to Haiti and back BECAUSE they did it right. My father, on the other hand, was not correct! He overstated his visa and was in this country illegally for years. He is 74 now and didn’t get his paperwork done until 4 or 5 years ago. Now, he’s a naturalized citizen. But for 42 years, he was breaking the law and needed to be deported. Had I known that he was here illegally, I would have sent him back myself! There was no reason that he could not have gotten the paperwork done! NO REASON AT ALL!!!!
Now, let’s get back to Obama and socialism and even the thrust of this ignorance in this display by this church:
"And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, - Acts 17:26-27
Affirmative Action, Income Redistribution and so many other programs are trying to do what God has not done: remove barriers by man’s law to make everyone equal. The only time anything remote to that happen was in the Book of Esther when the edict was placed to kill the Jews and another edict was created to allow them to defend themselves.
But racism has existed in the Bible since day one, but it wasn’t abolished on the Cross. The penalty of racism (aka sin) was resolved on Calvary.
For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me. - Matthew 26:11
Not my word, but Jesus’ own words! THERE WILL ALWAYS BE POOR PEOPLE! If anyone could have ended poverty and income inequality, it would have been Jesus! He could have nailed that to the Cross, but He didn't!
Was the widow that blessed Elijah poor? The widow with two mites? Mary and Joseph? Laws were not created to end their poverty! A law was given to assist in their poverty:
The second is this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." - Mark 12:31
We have the resources to help those in need! The Church as a body and as its individual members are called to assist those in need! NOT THE GOVERNMENT!
But we abdicated that responsibility and are now using the system to penalize those who have to give to the have nots!
When God sent Moses to speak to Pharaoh, what did He tell Moses to say?
"Let My People go that they may come and worship Me!"
Was there any talk of Reparations? NO! God didn’t say, "I saw what you did to my people and I’m going to go Sodom and Gommorah on you!" He said: "Let My People go that they may come and worship Me!" Now the people received reparations out the door because the Egyptians wanted them gone at all costs! Don’t get it twisted: THERE WAS NO EDICT/LAW demanding restitution!
And now, because we, Americans (Black, White, Yellow and Brow), have mismanaged our resources and blessings from God; we demand more resources and blessings that we won’t manage well again!
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results.
So, when any president, Republican or Democrat, tells me that I am owed anything but the due penalty of my offenses toward God, I rebuke that madness because I understand that this journey is temporary. It’s life on lease and anything we have is a major/minor distraction from glorifying God with all we have.
Finally, about that land built on immigrants. Is Heaven built on immigrants our adoptees?
Did we brave the chasm between Heaven and Hell to get into Heaven? Did we climb Heaven’s gate and sneak in without permission?
"But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment. And he said to him, 'Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless. Then the king said to the attendants, 'Bind him hand and foot and cast him into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' For many are called, but few are chosen." - Matthew 22:11-14
Here is a passage that shuts down any argument about immigrants and Heaven! If things are done on Earth as it is in Heaven, how do we not have the responsibility to maintain rules and order? Do I have compassion? Yes! But no one is asking the right questions but are instead attacking a policy that existed long before a Trump took office. That’s my problem with this display.
Using the Nativity scene in a cage to speak out against America's (NOT TRUMP'S) immigration policy is not only asinine but it is also illogical! Contextually speaking, the nativity scene came about because there was nowhere to stay! Not because of Bethlehem having an anti-immigrant policy! The symbolism is only accepted by people unable to understand the Bible in its context and are easily swayed by social issues over living out the gospel issues without any agenda but glorifying God! Using the nativity to fight America's (I repeat, NOT TRUMP's) immigration policy is like me blaming Duracell when my power goes out! Plain stupid!
