Franklin Graham: Halt all Immigration

Evangelist Franklin Graham said Tuesday that all immigration to the U.S. should be halted until America's "broken" immigration system is fixed.

"I think we should put a halt on immigration, because our borders are broken, until we have a proper system to vet people. I think all immigration, but especially those coming from the Middle East right now," he said on "CNN Newsroom" with Carol Costello.

Starting on January 5 in Des Moines, Graham -- the son of evangelist Billy Graham -- will hold prayer rallies at all 50 state capitals.

"I'm asking for Christians to join me -- or anybody -- to join me at the capital and to pray for our nation," he told Costello, adding later, "Everybody's welcome. Absolutely. Muslims will be welcomed." ...

Is the "trusting" to which you refer done by the sinner or by an external force?
Also is the "embracing" which you refer to done by the sinner or by some external entity?
I know that Graham and his father have always preached the biblical doctrine of salvation(that salvation comes only through trusting in Jesus alone for salvation and embracing Him as ones Savior and Lord) from watching their crusades on television and on DVD. The Holy Spirit guides an individual to embrace Jesus as Savior and Lord and to trust in Jesus alone for salvation.

Hi Ladybug, I just finsihed reading it and its a great reminder for all of us. Sometimes we need to step back and self examine to see where we need to strengthen ourselves, and check on our overall progress. The devotional is a good guide to see where we are lacking, what we might be forgetting, and what we should be striving for in daily life and our personal encounters, interpersonal relationships, etc., etc.
I think it's a great guide for each and every one to occasionally reference as we seek to emulate Him in our daily lives. Thsnks.

Thanks Dave, but sorry about all that, everyone. I've never been able to keep things short and sweet. Even in business, my communications sometime turn into short novels because I tend to over explain pretty much everything. Maybe I need rehab because as hard as I try, I can't ever seem to shorten things...ha-ha.

Reading thru 2 Chronicles I was struck with Asa and Jehoshaphat for as serious as they were as Kings of Judah in doing what was commanded, their failures were not covered by Scripture.

Asa had trusted God in great straights and then gave into his own management of the situation. When a prophet came to him the first time he responded in knowledgeable zeal, the next time he imprisoned the prophet and oppressed some of the people. Jehoshaphat made an alliance with Ahab's house and generational consequence followed. Yet when he was confronted when, 'Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the LORD? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the LORD. Nevertheless there are good things found in thee, in that thou hast taken away the groves out of the land, and hast prepared thine heart to seek God. ' Note his response in the rest of the chapter.

It brought 1 Cor.10:11-14 to my mind. When one desires to flee idolatry this time of year they will be sorely tested.

...where matters of doctrine, and heresy, etc, etc are concerned, I'm not trying to say in any way that a soft, weak approach should ever be taken. Only allowances on a person by person basis.

Pharisees were hypocrites, and I'll never be judge of mankind!
We are to righteously judge those in positions I stated, so say the word anyway, and I do try to test all things with scripture, that's not being a Pharisee, .
Preaching, teaching presenting as a man of God and not stand firm on God's word , that's hypocritical and behaving like Pharisee.!
Once again what does God say?
Have a nice day

Thanks Ladybug, I just read your other comment. I agree, and admire anyone who stands up and stands strong for truth, as we all should, no matter what and no matter who it might upset or offend. I just think sometimes we react too strongly, and this includes myself, to personal comments made and those reactions end up overpowering and halting the topic at hand as each side attacks the other in anger and frustration.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that I think turning the other cheek might go a long way when anyone feels slighted, offended, or insulted so that the conversation can hopefully progress instead of coming to a screeching halt as they sometimes do. I don't know how much sense I'm making, but I know I need to follow my own advice because it's no easy thing for me to keep my own mouth shut and not react or get defensive like I used to.
I also know that these thoughts and views might not jive with those of others, so this is just the way I, myself see things. Not trying to preach.

we may not feel we're getting anywhere ... but we never know ...
Direction and guidance are often affected by variables such as mood and circumstances.
Often we may sink under an apparent hopeless situation convinced that it is the worst that any has had to face ever before! And surely, there is much to discourage about nowadays.

At this time of the year, money is spend on stamps, ink and paper to send seasonal cards that say virtually nothing, except wishing at its best the good feeling of the season. Yet, perhaps it would be handy to grab any 'light' means of communication to share a meaningful biblical insight at the end of the year to encourage others in their way.

The forty-two thousand plus Jews in Ezra 2, having returned from Babylon under the Persian government with little more than a ‘tolerance edict’, knew theirs was a time of opportunity.
They had grounds to feel hopeless or insignificant, but steadily, they organized themselves to function (serve) as such, and their resolve stands as an example and testimony on how to react in spite of a poor setting: Just plan as ‘normal’ and keep on with what is right.

May we all partake of such a positive disposition for the new challenges ahead in the New Year.

There was a time when SA was way worse (in regards to posters doing everything they could to sow discord amongst the brethren), and most of them no longer post now. That's a good sign I think.There are more here that are edifying than not. We need Christians here who are sound in doctrine, so that when the children of wrath post foolishness, they will be rebuked. So just be patient.

God bless.

“We all need to stand together and fight the enemy of our soul rather than each other and leave the judging to God.”

You and I agree! and that is what I, Ladybug and so many others have done when they are responding to or commenting on your posts. Notice the below verses from Matthew. You are condemning yourself by your own words. Telling the truth in kindness and love is not judging and cannot be unkind if it is the truth.

Ecumenicalism is an evil that must be addressed in order for us to “stand together and fight the enemy of our soul”. Ecumenicalism seeks to build bridges to false theologies under the guise of love and evangelism. The only reason I address any of your posts is to expose your theology and in my mind, that is fighting the enemy of our souls.

Matthew 12:34-37,34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

I join Dorcas and SF in encouraging you to continue posting here- your discernment, insight, and wisdom are a welcome encouragement to Christ's body. We are blessed when edified by each other, and Christ is honored and glorified as a result.

Prayerfully, you will reconsider and take sister SF's advice, steer clear of the emotional manipulation and pity parties, correct error, expose wolves, and move on.

Sorry to see you leave.
Was edified by your posts.
Another sister posted a few nights ago about this ongoing 'whine' and cheese party that has been taking place on the board and she gave sound advice...correct if you must, move on and don't get drawn in by emotional manipulation.
Hope you will reconsider and join us again.

Lynda, I'd encourage you to stay. You gave great insight on the C S. Lewis thread. Sadly, as you have noticed there are a few who really do not care for truth. Overlook those few and fellowship with the rest. Sometimes going into "lurker mode" is a much needed break.
Dolores, quit judging Dave's judging.

For what it's worth, I was not referring to you nor was I even thinking of you when I stated those who coddle Dolores.
Yes, we are all at different levels of knowledge and understanding. That doesn't excuse blatant rebellion and denial when truth is presented to expose error. There are some who post here for the sole purpose of causing division and dissension, causing others to leave the boards. Honestly, that is probably a wise choice. The troublemakers threaten to leave, but don't. Satan's minions delight in stirring the pot.

Have a blessed day

And Dave, when you become perfect, then you can be the Judge of all mankind until then just cool it, makes you look, well..judgemental like the Pharisees.

Lynda, thanks for your prayers, I need all I can get. Now since moderators know when something is wrong and since so much name calling goes on here, and since you have been reading posts long enough to judge me as you have, why have you never posted or have you under another monkier. It's happened before when I first got on here. Liza j and I know exactly who it was. Liza j like you just posted a few times. Strange. I do apologize and believe it or not I was so like you in the begining. Blessings and I will be praying for you. We all need to stand together and fight the enemy of our soul rather than each other and leave the judging to God.
Christropher, that's what I said..there is a song that says; God made the stars and moon and sea but He's still working on me. Amen and that should keep us all pretty humble.
