Does Government’s Role Differ from Our Calling to Love Others?

Does Government’s Role Differ from Our Calling to Love Others?

Immigration remains a hot topic in America. Caravans of migrants are traveling up through Mexico hoping to break into the United States. Some believe we should let them all in and take care of them. After all, isn’t that the “Christian” thing to do?

Others support President Trump in sending the military to protect our border. Our nation has long been a haven for asylum seekers and immigrants, but there is a process for those seeking to enter our nation.

Why are believers so divided on this issue? I believe this comes from confusing the role of government with that of our responsibility to help the needy.
