Why do leftists try using the Bible to claim "IlLeGaL iMmIgRaTiOn Is a RiGhT" when they fail to realize that they couldn't be more wrong?

Heaven has a gate, a wall, and an extreme vetting process to get in. Hell has open borders. Let that sink in...

  • Jesus said that he was dying to allow everyone into heaven by paying for their sins , that was kinda his whole deal

  • Actually, according to Jesus, it's Heaven that has the open borders. John 3:16 explicitly says God offers everlasting life to "the world."

  • I defer to good old St.Thomas Aquinas, a doctor of the Catholic Church.

    He posited a logical stance on immigration based on Christian teaching and the Bible. Here are some quotes:

    “For the Jews were offered three opportunities of peaceful relations with foreigners. First, when foreigners passed through their land as travelers. Secondly, when they came to dwell in their land as newcomers. And in both these respects the Law made kind provision in its precepts: for it is written (Exodus 22:21): ‘Thou shalt not molest a stranger [advenam]’; and again (Exodus 22:9): ‘Thou shalt not molest a stranger [peregrino].’”

    So far, so good on treating people with respect and dignity.

    “Nevertheless it was possible by dispensation for a man to be admitted to citizenship on account of some act of virtue: thus it is related (Judith 14:6) that Achior, the captain of the children of Ammon, ‘was joined to the people of Israel, with all the succession of his kindred.’”

    So, sovereignties have a right to grant dispensations of citizenship that are granted through some test of assimilation.

    Though he did not quote the Bible in this next quote, he still carries the clout of a learned theologian who implicitly studied the Bible:

    “Thirdly, when any foreigners wished to be admitted entirely to their fellowship and mode of worship. With regard to these a certain order was observed. For they were not at once admitted to citizenship: just as it was law with some nations that no one was deemed a citizen except after two or three generations, as the Philosopher says (Polit. iii, 1).”

    Order! No open borders.

    The Doctor has spoken.
