While Christians were recently named the most persecuted group in the world for the second year in a row, the Archbishop of Chicago was too busy promoting open borders to discuss the plight of his supposed brothers and sisters in Christ. Cardinal Blase Cupich stated “When so many want to make us afraid of diversity, of the migrant, of the immigrant who is looking for a better life, can we not say, ‘Let’s see where Christ is leading us?’” Sadly, Kate Steinle couldn’t make it to Mr. Cupich’s sermon on how we shouldn’t fear illegal immigrants, because she was killed by one. She had nothing to fear though, right Cardinal Cupich?
Yes, Mr. Cupich’s condescending screed couldn’t have been any more tone-deaf. After all, not all immigrants are interested in obeying the laws of the countries they move to. I mean, by definition, illegal immigrants break the immigration laws of the country they emigrate to. If they’re willing to commit a crime to enter the country, what other crimes are they willing to commit? Indeed, since Germany opened their borders to a flood of migrants, nearly half of German women feel unsafe walking around in their own neighborhoods. Then there’s Sweden, recently nicknamed the “Rape Capital of the West” because “Forty years after the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the formerly homogenous Sweden into a multicultural country, violent crime has increased by 300% and rapes by 1,472%.”
Setting aside these inconvenient truths, the best way to determine “where Christ is leading us” is to find out what His Word says about the issue. Unfortunately for Mr. Cupich, the Bible is crystal clear: nations were God’s idea and a borderless society is Satan’s goal. After the Flood, God told Noah and his family to spread out and fill the earth (Genesis 9:1). Noah’s descendants disobeyed (Genesis 11:4). Consequently, God confused their language, creating unique people-groups which were the forerunners of modern nation-states (Genesis 11:7-8). God explained why He did this, saying “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them” (Genesis 11:5-6). When sinful human beings are united to do something, they can commit great evil. Nazi Germany is a perfect example. Imagine that on a global scale and you’ll appreciate why God created barriers. They make it more difficult for Satan to unite mankind under a false global religion, which is going to happen at some point but only for a short time (Revelation 17:17).
Regardless, while churches in Germany are attacked by Muslim migrants and Muslim migrants stab women for reading the Bible in Austria, the Roman Catholic Church, led by Pope Francis, continues to push for more migrants. There’s nothing more off-putting than criticizing other people for a minor issue, such as harboring suspicion of illegal immigrants, while ignoring major offenses, like the rapes, murders and anti-Christ behavior of the predominantly Muslim migrants flooding Europe and the United States. Like Jesus said of the Pharisees, “You blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!” (Matthew 23:24) The same condemnation applies to the Roman Catholic Church.
