What does the Bible say about immigrants? Part 20
3 Don’t put your confidence in powerful people;
there is no help for you there. . . .
5 But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper,
whose hope is in the Lord their God. . . .
9 The Lord protects the foreigners among us.
He cares for the orphans and widows,
but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.
Psalm 146:3,5,9, NLT
Currently the House and Senate are considering new immigration laws. One of the questions being asked is “What will help our economy?” One of the laws being considered is to favor those immigrants with higher education degrees. If you stop to think about it, this will favor men over women, Asians over Latinos, the high income potential persons over the poor. What kind of laws would God make for our country?
