"There are reasons to oppose bringing Syrian refugees to America.
None of them are good reasons. Most of them are sickeningly racist.
And all of them are deeply, obviously, blatantly and clearly unChristian. You cannot object to helping these people and call yourself a Christian. Jesus himself would rebuke you. He already has, in fact. Reread verses 41-46 if you need to. If you refuse to help the sick and the destitute and the needy, you are going to Hell.
There is literally no way to make that any clearer. Christians are commanded to help those who are in need. Not requested. Not asked. Not begged. Commanded.
In plain and clear language. By Jesus. There’s no way to wriggle out
of this, folks. You either help these people– or, to do the absolute minimum, get the hell out of their way– or by the words of the man you consider the son of God you are going to Hell."
Excellent article. He makes the 2 points I was thinking of writing about; 1) Christians will be denying their own faith if they refuse to help refugees, and 2) fear is no excuse.
