European Refugees

Thousands of refugees, mostly Syrians, are fleeing into Europe to escape the violent IS and the war that is taking place there. So people in this world are committing crimes and wars because…I don’t know and I don’t get it.

When the Lamb broke the second seal, I heard the second living being say, “Come!” Then another horse appeared, a red one. Its rider was given a mighty sword and the authority to take peace from the earth. And there was war and slaughter everywhere. Revelation 6 (NLT)

Okay that explains a lot.

So people who are good are escaping from the evil that has come crashing around them in this blog it is IS. Now the question is where do we put them all? Many of the European countries are trying their best to accommodate the refugees but are overwhelmed.

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
Emma Lazarus

Originally people came to this country to escape religious persecution to be able to practice their religion. People came to this country because we have freedom an element that God has given everyone. That choice to come to God or not. The same power to choose to do good or evil.

20 What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter. Isaiah 5 (NLT)

Our country is based on the principal that anyone can immigrate to this country and work hard to do well. To practice their religion without persecution.

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:12 (NKJV)

Yes we will share differences of opinion but we are human after all. Many great inventors and intellects have immigrated to this country from other parts of the world this is the history of our nation. Oh…and we are not natives of this country only the native Americans are. We, as a country, should be reaching out to our fellow man with compassion.

Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God. Romans 15:7 (NIV)
