In Our Midst
I believe that, over the next couple of years, one of the most important public issues which calls for good economics and sincere Christianity will be immigration reform. There are are few commands in the Old Testament more clear-cut to God's people than they must be concerned for and hospitable to the aliens and sojourners in their midst, for they themselves were once aliens in a foreign land. But what does that mean for the complicated public policy issues of today? It certainly does not mean that Christians who disagree on these issues should be throwing bible verses at each other. I hope to be making some more detailed posts in the near future on this topic, but if anyone has any preliminary comments, I would like to see them.
