King pens op-ed about the Bible and immigration

Read what Congressman Steve King (R-Kiron, Iowa) wrote for the group “Renewing American Leadership” by clicking here. Renewing American Leadership is led by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, to “reshape government” and “to help people of faith take back their own country.”

Here’s a key segment from King’s opinion piece:

The Bible is very clear not only on the subject of borders, but also on the importance of obeying the Rule of Law.

…For example, take Deuteronomy 32:8. That passage reads: “When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance, when he divided mankind, he fixed the borders of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God.” How can that possibly be read as an invitation to believe that God remains neutral on the subject of borders? It can’t be. Neither can the passage in Acts 17:26 which says that “God made all nations who live on earth, and he decided when and where every nation would be.”

…Or how about Jesus’ teaching to Matthew that one should “therefore render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” That is a clear directive to Christ’s followers to respect the rule of man-made law in secular, as opposed to spiritual, settings. Rewarding illegal immigrants with amnesty clearly violates this provision, as it can not possibly be argued that rewarding illegal immigrants for their lawbreaking promotes a respect for man-made immigration laws.

King closes the piece by aruging Democrats who support “amnesty” for illegal immigrants are akin to Pontius Pilate.  Here, again, is the link to the op-ed.
