Jesus, The Good Samaritan, Hillary Clinton and Illegal Aliens

by @ 4:27 pm. Filed under Illegal Aliens, Nuts on Parade

I did not comment on this one when it first hit the news, because I really wanted to take my time on this one. I wanted to slowly pick it apart piece by piece, so there would be nothing left for Liberals and allies of illegal immigration to chew on. So far I’ve seen commentary on this, but I’m hoping to offer details and perspective not previously given.

So lets start with the issue. Queen Dingbaticus Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has vowed to stop efforts to treat illegal immigrants like criminals. Even though they broke US laws, Hillary obviously sees no crime done when someone enters a nation in full violation of the rules for entry. She offered this very odd statement about the Bible.

Clinton vows to block bill criminalizing illegal immigrants

“It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures,” Clinton said, “because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself.”

Expose the Left has video of Hillary’s twisted sermon for the media. I usually expect this level of scripture twisting and flat out lies from someone like Farra-the-Con, but to see an elected US Senator try to pull it off is a sad sign of who is being allowed to decide legislation for this nation.

Dennis of blog Fire and Hammer has this to say:

Jesus: The Illegal Immigrant?

Senator, I am afraid you lost me on that one. I read the parable of the Good Samaritan, and I see no mention of him violating the immigration laws of the United States, or those of any other country. For all we know, he may have had his green card. As for Jesus, I am certain a man Who never sinned and even paid His taxes would have taken the time to make sure His passport was in order.

As a follower of Jesus I find it offensive that Sen. Clinton would assume Jesus would live in violation of the immigration laws of His time. The Bible tells us to respect the government as an institution ordained by God. As such, Jesus would only defy immigration law if the law somehow contradicted God’s moral law. Sorry Sen. Clinton, Jesus was not an illegal immigrant.

I’ll start my breakdown of Hillary’s lunacy with the parable of the Good Samaritan.

Luke 10:25-37 (New King James Version)

25) And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, ?Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life??

26) He said to him, ?What is written in the law? What is your reading of it??

27) So he answered and said, ? ?You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,? and ?your neighbor as yourself.??

28) And He said to him, ?You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.?

29) But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, ?And who is my neighbor??

30) Then Jesus answered and said: ?A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

31) Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

32) Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side.

33) But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion.

34) So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

35) On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ?Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.?

36) So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves??

37) And he said, ?He who showed mercy on him.?
Then Jesus said to him, ?Go and do likewise.?

In the parable, a man who went from Jerusalem to Jericho was beaten nearly to death. This “immigrant” was not found in violation of immigration laws by authorities. He was beaten by a gang of thugs. So the hero “The Good Samaritan” helped him. America helps people fearing death from other nations all the time. It’s called political asylum! America grants it to people from around the world who might otherwise be killed. Neither the beaten man or the Samaritan were found to be breaking any laws. For a Samaritan to help save the life of someone from Jerusalem was not a common social gesture, but it was not illegal to help the man from Jerusalem. So Hillary’s attempt to bring up the Good Samaritan is not applicable. People who enter the USA illegally, already had jobs where they came from. These people are not fearing for their lives. They want a pay raise. Regarding loving them as I do myself, I follow the laws of this land. And expect others to do as I do myself. So I can’t excuse an illegal immigrant, when I strive to follow the law myself. I do not break laws for a pay raise.

America has given plenty to Mexico, to try and help that nation grow. It is America’s military that protects nations like Mexico and Canada from ever being attacked and is the reason they don’t need a strong military themselves. America defends the lives of Mexicans by default, given their location. So we give Mexicans plenty of love where they are. Neither the aid given by the Good Samaritan or America would be deemed criminal activity under bills like HR 4437. America takes in foreigners needing medical treatment all the time. Countless times crippled children from Arab nations have been given medical treatment in America. Even when protests have taken place in those nations with chants of “death to America”.

So let’s move on to Jesus, the Lord of all.

Matthew 2:12-15 (New King James Version)

12) Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.

13) Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, ?Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.?

14) When he arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night and departed for Egypt,

15) and was there until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, ?Out of Egypt I called My Son.?

Jesus was being hunted by Herod, so Mary and Joseph took him to Egypt, based on instructions from an angel of the Lord. This means they immigrated into Egypt. There is no record of them breaking any laws to enter. Given they were being hunted by the government (Herod), they were candidates for political asylum under US laws. This means Jesus would not be found in violation of any US laws.

Maybe Hillary should have taken the time to read the next 3 versus:

16) Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.

17) Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:

18) ? A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more.?

Herod ordered the slaughter of innocent children for his own convenience. To protect his own stature in life. Given the mass killings in America via abortion, one can only look at Hillary and wonder if her pro-Choice position agrees more with the view of Herod or God? (I say Herod.)

Jesus, Joseph and Mary later ended up in Nazareth. There is no record of them ever breaking any immigration laws in their travels.

Everyone knows of Jesus and his 12 disciples traveling to minister the gospel. They never were known to break any immigration laws in their efforts. Jesus taught them to respect laws and only go where they were welcomed. Look at what Jesus told the 70 other disciples, that nobody ever talks about. (Yes, there were more than just 12.)

Luke 10:1-12 (New King James Version)

1) After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.

2) Then He said to them, ?The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

3) Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves.

4) Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor sandals; and greet no one along the road.

5) But whatever house you enter, first say, ?Peace to this house.?

6) And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you.

7) And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house.

8) Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you.

9) And heal the sick there, and say to them, ?The kingdom of God has come near to you.?

10) But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say,

11) ?The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you.?

12) But I say to you that it will be more tolerable in that Day for Sodom than for that city.

When Jesus sent the 70 in groups of 2, he told them to go where they were received. If they were not received, they were instructed to tell the people of the town that the kingdom of God stopped by and wipe that town’s dust from their feet. Those disciples were not entering cities to try and stay permanently and be given some form of citizenship. They were visiting temporarily and not trying to overstay and temporary visa. Nothing in bills like HR 4437 would prevent people from VISITING the United States. In addition, the disciples were visiting cities to spread the gospel, not to try and get a pay raise.

Finally, lets look at the immigration policies for the area run by God.

John 3:18 (New King James Version)

18) ?He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

God only allows those who follow the proper immigration guidelines to enter the kingdom of heaven. No illegals allowed! So Jesus along with the Father keep a very tight reign on immigration into their kingdom.

Given all of this, I can find no way via scripture that Hillary Clinton’s words can be viewed as theologically accurate. I think this lie by Senator Clinton will be her ultimate undoing.

    Should Christians Help Facilitate Illegal Activity?

    Is it right for a Christian to offer food and shelter to someone that robbed a bank? Of course not. We know that the thief should be in police custody and that the authorities are more than capable of providing food and shelter, in addition to a tri…
