A group of Bible-believing Christians has formed the Evangelical Immigration Table to promote immigration reform. It is promoting what it is calling the “I Was a Stranger” Challenge. They give you 40 Bible passages that have to do with how we should treat immigrants. They ask you to read, meditate, and pray about each one, one a day, over 40 days. And then see what you think about immigration reform. After the jump, read the details and see the 40 Bible passages.
The organization includes lots of religious conservatives, though also some on the evangelical left. (See this.) At any rate, it is clear that the Bible tells us to be kind to “sojourners.” One could make a case that Christians should champion immigration reform because it is the right thing to do and also because the immigrants in question tend to be religious, pro-family, pro-life, anti-homosexuality, and potential cultural and political allies. Do you agree? If not, could reading the 40 Bible passages at least in theory change your mind?
