While I understand and respect the importance of borders and security, those protected by this policy are worthy of our compassion and concern. This is not a question of border security — these individuals have already been in the country for many years, some for decades.
We consider modern-day slavery a "good" vs. "bad" problem that can be solved with more police raids and criminal prosecutions. Yet, when we look at the underlying issues, it's rarely that straightforward. There are forms of cultural slavery, so ingrained in a society, they're considered normal and acceptable.
President Trump's first speech before the U.N. was vintage Trump, for better or for worse. One line in particular epitomized why some people love him and others loathe him: "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself." Accordingly, his speech drew enthusiastic praise as well as breathless condemnation.
Much has been said, and written, about Senator Dianne Feinstein's prejudicial questioning of Notre Dame Professor Amy Coney Barrett in her nomination hearing for 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

With so much devastation in the news, it's hard not to ask God, "Why?" Here's some help for responding to questions about natural disasters and God.
Linking the "Unsealed" film with all evangelical Christians is unfair. When we wake up Sunday to find the video's prophecy unfulfilled, even more people are likely to mock our faith. But such is the culture we inhabit.
There are Evangelicals and Catholics who critique yoga as wrong for Christians because its mantras originate in eastern religion. Setting aside that concern, should worship space be open to recreation and "profane" (i.e., secular) activities like yoga?
While it seems insensitive to ask this while we grieve, people are wondering why didn't God heal Nabeel. After all, he was a brilliant and charismatic young man taken away from his wife Michelle and daughter Ayah, and the rest of us, far too early. Nabeel had so much more to give to his family and the Kingdom of God that his death seems completely senseless.
If you think North Korea's dictators are bad for the world, just imagine what it's like to be a Christian there. Operation World says that although no one really knows their true number, there could be as many as 350,000 underground Christians. Where did they all come from, and how do they survive?
Here are some obvious questions that are going through many people's minds. Could it be that God chooses to heal some and not others? If so, how can we pray for healing with any confidence?

The 800,000 "Dreamers," brought to America as children, or born here, are illegal aliens because of someone else's decision. Christians should feel compassion for them. But DACA is unconstitutional.
A radio host in Detroit told me he was shocked one day when a caller referred to his child as a "carbon unit." Yes, a carbon unit. That's how a dad talked about his own kid. But this is not much different than referring to a baby in the womb as a "mass of cells."
As I look around and see Christian schools with enrollment declines of 10 and 20 percent, or recruiting students overseas and gouging their tuition, or the ultimate failure closing their doors, I am saddened!
