Mature Christians tend to work tirelessly for justice. It stems from a deep concern for the vulnerable, the isolated, the weak, and the sick.
Christians provide assistance not only to current citizens, but also to potential immigrants. A longing for justice demands that this work be done carefully. If criminals didn't prey on the vulnerable, we wouldn't need a stringent vetting process for immigrants.

The Chinese government wants to stave off demographic catastrophe. Problem is, the Chinese people don't care what the government thinks.
Over the past decade or more, we've talked on BreakPoint about China's looming fertility crisis. This, of course, is the result of the Communist Party instituting what became known as the "one-child policy" back in 1979.
With very few exceptions, Chinese couples were permitted to have only one child. The policy, in the words of the Washington Post, "led to untold millions of forced abortions, sterilizations and horrific abuses of power." more >>
A number of Protestant churches in Austria have slammed a right-wing politician for using God's name in a campaign slogan, arguing that God shouldn't be used as a means to attack other people and cultures.
"God cannot be manipulated for personal intentions or political purposes," declared the joint statement of Protestant leaders as read by Bishop Michael Buenker.
"We consider that mentioning God for one's own political interests and using Him along with reference to the Christian West to indirectly attack other religions and cultures amounts to an abuse of His name and of religion in general," the statement continued, according to BBC News. more >>
Before you applaud me for my integrity or condemn me for selling out, allow me to explain my decision to vote for Donald Trump on November 8.
First, I'm writing this because I have been asked incessantly for months how I would be voting, not because I think I'm someone special or that what I do should influence you.
Best-selling Christian author and preacher Max Lucado was never consulted about being featured in a progressive Christian nonprofit's anti-Donald Trump ad campaign that launched last week and includes audio from his interview with National Public Radio earlier this year.
The Christian Post reported on Friday that the left-leaning Faith in Public Life Action Fund recently launched a $300,000 anti-Trump ad campaign that features four different video ads highlighting the Republican nominee's offensive comments about women.
As the ads attempt to target evangelical millennials and Catholic women, they will run from now until election night on a number of national and state news websites, including The Washington Post, The New York Times and USA Today. more >>
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey didn't bite her tongue when she was asked to comment on the 2016 presidential election on T.D. Jakes' show on Thursday. Being a lifelong Democrat, Oprah affirmed her support for Hillary Clinton and encouraged other Americans to vote for the Democratic presidential nominee if they "like this country."
"The reason why I haven't been vocal other than saying, 'I'm with her,' is because I didn't know what to say that could actually pierce through all the noise and the chaos and the disgusting vitriol that's going on, and actually be heard."
The Oscar nominee told the audience that the decision between the two major candidates should be clear. "But there really is no choice, people. All the people sitting around talking about they can't decide, this is what I want to say. All the people, I hear this all the time, you get into conversations — and there's not a person in this room who hasn't been in the same conversation — where people say, 'I just don't know if I like her.'" more >>
