#ec1dot47 - A Conversation Between Church and State: Immigration
This land is your land, wait…no, it’s not. This land is my land and that’s the way it's going to stay.
While this is factually inaccurate it is the attitude that many Americans have when it comes to border control and the topic of immigration or even taking in refugees from hostile environments.
For the church - a people who live in a land that is not their home - it raises some questions as to whether their politics really line up with their faith.
We open a new can of worms with this week’s episode of Another Empty Conversation
The time has arrived for Another Empty Conversation - a show that lets you eavesdrop on a conversation about faith and following Jesus. We talk about our faith so you can talk about yours.
Welcome to Empty Conversation episode ec1dot47 and the first episode in our new series, “A Conversation Between Church and State.” Where over the next 7 weeks we will talk about issues that Christians face when trying to decide who to vote for.
Topics will include women’s rights, reproductive rights, the economy, and more. Today’s episode centers around the topic of immigration. This has long been an issue that separates the people of the United States. This past year the debate raged when it was proposed that refugees be brought into the United States for protection and care.
Bible verses were flung back and forth “proving” which side was right. The battle cry of "Jesus was a refugee” went up against “God will give us wisdom on how to act.”
So we continue this conversation today and we hope that you will join in the conversation with us.
These are complex issues and we must learn from what the Bible says and from each other. You should share your comments with us on Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media platforms or you can email us at smile firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking forward to this conversation with all of your voices being heard.
So without further delay lets do this thing
