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.
