Evangelicals Pleading, Pushing, and Promoting More Refugees from Middle East!
The World Relief people, Christianity Today, Sojourners, etc., are trying to lay heavy layers of guilt upon Christians who resist and criticize accepting refugees into America. An article in Christianity Today blared, āEvangelical Experts Oppose Trumpās Plan to Ban Refugees.ā Note that it was not lay members but experts who oppose a temporary ban on refugees. If the experts have any smarts, they will listen to their constituents. And what qualifies them as experts?
Ed Stetzer, Wheaton College professor and blogger, wrote, āFirst, we must continue to reject false facts.ā Ed, there is no such thing as āfalse facts.ā Building up steam like an old-time Pentecostal tent evangelist he said, āIām pro-life because the unborn are made in the image of God, as are refugees. So, Iām pro-refugee because I am pro-life.ā It is commendable that Ed is pro-life but that position does not require a principled person...
Who are these supposed "EVANGELICALS "? Is there a list of names? I've seen none, but that doesn't mean that there isn't any.
I suggest if those reportedly EVANGELICAL", we simply use the Bible and Decrement to determine if they are and if there views are Biblically sound. To paraphrase," a tree is known by its fruit", this is a excellent standard for all to follow. I wonder how informed they are about Islam also what the Koran and Hadiths say? I doubt they do, otherwise they'd not rush in to accept all Muslims.
Isis is a true representation of Islam.
Would Islamic states accept millions of Christians into there country?
Think hard and pray harder for the truth, no matter where it takes you!

US preacher's warning to Islamic militants: 'The women of Montana are armed' 2 hours ago
Watch Video here:
Donald Trump's travel ban against immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries have caused controversy around the world - but one poll shows a majority of Americans support the move. They certainly agree with Trump's stance in the state of Montana, where officials and residents have fought against efforts to resettle refugees.
In context . .
Fears about Muslim refugees settling in the American West / 4 August 2016
āISIS will come for our womenā. Thatās how one resident expressed his fears about the proposed settling of refugees in the US state of Montana.
Well I quess the best thing that could happen is that no Islamic terrorist kills anyone and the next thing to do is cull the nineth district away from the rest of the US, and let them have the left coast.

The fact is that not all predominately Muslim nations have been banned, but only those deemed dangerous to America. Take Indonesia, for example...no ban, among others. This is about safety...our safety, and hard vetting, plain and simple.
see (at Wrapsnet) that 1,618 have come in since Trump first signed an EO to pause the refugee program for 120-daysāand less than a week since Judge Robartās ruled on a portion of the EO.
Of the 1,618, the following came from countries the Administration was particularly concerned about. And, remember, although there were 7 countries of concern (90 day pause from 6 of them) Syria was to be halted indefinitely:
No refugees came from Libya or Yemen, however, 78 came from Afghanistan in less than a weekā should have been included from day one. (notion that 7 countries targeted had already been identified by Obama Administration so, Trump team thought they had some sort of PR coup with the media was a dumb idea.media ignored

Though they are officially ānon-profitā organizations, Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services, and several other Christian organizations are profiting from lucrative contracts with the federal government to resettle refugees in the United States. Of the 100,000 refugees resettled in the United States in 2014 under the Refugee Resettlement program, an estimated 40 percent were Muslims.
After providing three to four months of resettlement services to these refugees, having been well compensated for their assistance services, these Christian non-profit VOLAGS stop providing services and are not required to keep track of their location within the United States.
The likelihood that some number of these Muslim refugeesāwhether from Syria, Iraq, Somalia, or any of the other predominantly Muslim countries that send refugees to the United Statesāare Islamist terrorists is very high!
From the Article: Much of this $1 billion in annual revenue goes to voluntary agencies (VOLAGs), several of which are Christian non-profits, such as Catholic Charities, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, World Relief Corporation, Church World Service, and Domestic and Foreign Missionary Service of the Episcopal Church of the USA. (also referred to as Episcopal Migration Ministries), who are contracted on behalf of the government to help these refugees get settled in their new homes in America.
Glad to see such high concern for my weather trauma. I already stocked up on the kleenex, Ladybug, but a towel would have been nice, since I've already gone through most of the case. š As long as we don't lose power, I won't complain too much. Nice to have a day off, actually. They don't come often. Ok, losers, with the nice, warm weather and those who saw a snowflake drifting by, bye bye now.
If it makes you feel any better, we had a 'dusting' here It's supposed to get in the low 50's tomorrow. Would you like us to pool our money and buy you some kleenex or maybe a crying towel? My grandbaby has a tee shirt that says 'boo hoo', do you want to borrow it?
