People are suffering.
Seeking freedom and the American Dream. Searching for safety and security.
Many American Christians have gotten so used to not seeing the poor at their church doors, that they can no longer see the refugees at our nation’s door.
People who have lost everything but hope are turning to the United States, and the country is turning them away.
After hundreds of years to develop and grow, American Christians have perfected a type of Christianity that values nation over people and government more than Grace. And ironically, while they discriminate, marginalize others, and pledge allegiance to a flag, they think they are the ‘true Christians.’
Thousands of lives have been lost — the hopes and dreams of thousands of Anne Franks, while too many American Christians have done nothing.
This isn’t the message of Jesus.
I agree totally with your sentiments. These are sad days. But we mustn’t give up hope.
Thanks so much!
