The Fraud of Political Correctness | The Theological Reason | The Social Reason | The Civil Reason | The Reality

 
SONTRARY to any political correctness, illegal immigration is a sin. Why? Actually, it’s a sin for several reasons.

 
The Theological Reason

Illegal immigration is a sin theologically because every illegal alien commits mortal sin by breaking two of the Ten Commandments: “Thou shalt not lie,” and “Thou shalt not steal.”

 
The Social Reason

Illegal immigration is a sin socially because it defiles Christian love for one’s neighbor: it breaks up families in the country of origin; it exploits the illegal aliens themselves in terms of wages and benefits; it deprives legitimate citizens of jobs; it increases the tax burden on taxpayers; and it brews a support system for criminal activity, such as smuggling, assault, rape, and murder.

 
The Civil Reason

And, let us not forget, illegal immigration is a sin civilly because it is, well, illegal. Remember, Saint Paul told us to be obedient to authority because “whoever resists authority opposes what God has appointed, and those who oppose it will bring judgment upon themselves” (Romans 13:2).

  

No matter where you go, you cannot receive sanctuary from sin. Unless you repent, you are headed to doom.

  

 
The Reality

So how can Christians welcome others into their midst without committing sin? Well, those who call themselves Christian must first have in their hearts a real place of welcome, and this requires a dedication to a real Christian identity.

Christians’ lives are ordered by chastity.

Christians respect the sanctity of Holy Matrimony and do not divorce and remarry.

Christians do not kill an unborn child through abortion, nor destroy it after birth.

Christians dignify their bodies by dressing modestly.

Christians live prayerful, sober lives and do not smoke cigarettes, overeat, get intoxicated with alcohol, or use marijuana or other drugs.

Christians resist cultural brainwashing by not concerning themselves with social media, lust, greed, competition, or popular entertainment.

If all Christians can do all of these things, then they can welcome others into a place of holy sanctuary from the evil of the surrounding culture. But if Christians are not living a real Christian identity, and if they aren’t teaching others to live chaste, prayerful lives free of sin, then all that they do in the name of “social justice” is just a pathetic fraud in the service of the demonic.
