Don’t Oppress the Foreigner

The Point

Don’t Oppress the Foreigner

As an American living on the opposite side of the world for almost 6 years, I have found one problem with laws of almost every country: They don’t pause to understand foreigners, good or bad. Caesar, child of an illegal Mexican immigrant, taught us to understand dogs so we can master them.

To have rule of law, the law must understand people—citizens, foreigners, small businesses…

But, American Churchianity… Try to understand someone outside their Sunday morning groupies? Fat chance! Immigration is out of control because we neglected to understand.

Bible policy: don’t oppress foreigners, don’t follow pagans, lest ye be judged.

Leviticus 19:34, Jeremiah 7:6, 22:3, Zechariah 7:10; Leviticus 20:23
