Imago Dei and the Immigrant

See also

Most people in Tennessee vote pro-life.

This is a state with values.

People still go to church on Sundays, families still eat dinner together at night, and children are expected to mind their manners.

The pro-life message is one that recognizes the value of a person. Those who vote pro-life do so because they believe that God has created life and in His image.

Ironically, most people who vote pro-life do not vote pro-immigrant.

Immigrants are created imago Dei, too, right?

J. Lee Grady wrote an article for Charisma magazine titled, "You Can't be Pro-Life and Anti-Immigrant." This is an article worth reading in its entirety. J.Lee Grady, a prolific author, is an ordained minister with the International Pentecostal Holiness Church (IPHC). He is challenging Christian believers (and evangelical voters) to revisit the Biblical mandates concerning hospitality and welcoming the immigrant into our land.

Right now, there is a bill in Nashville proposing an English-only law for driver's licenses and other government transactions.

The Bible says, "love your neighbor." (Mark 12:31)

It doesn't say, "love your neighbor, only if they speak English."
