Ohio Gov. Kasich: ‘The Lord’ Doesn’t Want Americans to Oppose Migrant Caravan

Ohio Gov. John Kasich told CNN Thursday that “the Lord” doesn’t want Americans to build walls and oppose the migrant caravan heading to the United States from Central America.

“We’ve got to start putting ourselves in the shoes of other people,” Kasich told CNN’s Newsroom.

Kasich, the grandson of Catholic immigrants from Eastern Europe who became an Anglican Christian as an adult, said he believes most Americans would welcome the caravan.

We’ve got to start thinking about the consequences that others suffer. And if we have been spared those by the grace of God, let us be appreciative, let us count our blessings, and let us reach out to those who have less. Let’s stop putting up walls around ourselves and not understanding the plight, the trouble, and the problems of others. It is not right. And the Lord doesn’t want it, and our people at their hearts want to reach out to others. Look at what they do in these storms. They go and they rescue people they don’t know. They put them in their homes. They feed them. That’s America. Not all this garbage and this division and yelling and screaming and hatred on all sides.”

But not all Christians agree with the governor’s take on biblical truth.

Kelly Kullberg, author of Finding God at Harvard.

Kelly Kullberg, a Christian Ohioan who is editor and co-author of Finding God at Harvard, leads the new American Association of Evangelicals and has served as a missionary in Guatemala and El Salvador. She said the Bible has a lot to say about nations, but nowhere does it teach nations to open their borders to mass migration.

“While I appreciate Gov. Kasich’s Christian faith and compassion, I would encourage him to reconsider the nature of love and the balanced wisdom of Scripture,” Kullberg told The Ohio Star. “The Bible does not teach open borders, but wise welcome.”

Kullberg said the Bible has four words for “foreigner” in Hebrew. One word indicates those who come lawfully as blessings; the word really means “converts,” like Ruth and Rahab. These foreigners are to be embraced as citizens.

Two other Hebrew words indicate temporary visitors or guest workers, to be treated kindly while passing through.

A fourth word indicates a danger, someone who does not come lawfully to assimilate and bless a nation, and is not to be welcomed. (See Dr. James Hoffmeier’s classic book, The Immigration Crisis).

“Rarely do folks quoting the Bible on immigration ever mention that Nehemiah and Ezra led their nation in the rebuilding of its faith, culture and walls,” Kullberg said. “Or that, in Isaiah 1, God considers it a curse and tragedy when a nation is overrun by foreign influence.”

DHS and ICE record many thousands of crimes against American citizens by people here illegally. And Kullberg believes God is grieved when a nation doesn’t protect its citizens, while remaining open to those who come lawfully as blessings.

“We’re to be stewards and gardeners, using wisdom to grow a beautiful culture,” she said.

Kullberg said she noticed something else about the caravan that Kasich apparently didn’t.

“I don’t agree with the governor that people, such as the young and strong men in these ‘caravans,’ should flee their home nations,” she said. “I love Guatemala and worked there as a missionary with widows and children. When sons leave, they leave behind vulnerable grandparents, women and children. What if we and they put creative effort, wisdom and the curious money behind these marches, into the protection and growth of their local villages and cities?”

“That’s what the Bible teaches us to do. The Gospel and its teaching are to uplift every nation,” she added. “That’s why I went with teams of grad students to help build homes, small businesses, a medical clinic and school in Guatemala, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic and Peru.”

Kasich has always been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, both before and after he was elected in 2016. On Wednesday, in an interview with MSNBC, Kasich blamed Trump for the bomb-scare packages that were mailed to 10 prominent Democrats.

Kullberg said she encourages the governor to honor the common sense of Ohioans, and how they voted in 2016.

“I ask him to honor struggling American workers who deserve to not be replaced by cheaper foreign labor,” she said. “He could look into the orchestrated, political nature of much mass migration, who funds it and why.”

She said Kasich would also do well to “brush up on the concept of sovereign nations – and the Book of Nehemiah.”

“The whole counsel of Scripture is the highest love for human beings, and the highest good for cultures and nations.”

Denmark bans kosher and halal slaughter as minister says ‘animal rights come before religion’

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/denmark-bans-halal-and-kosher-slaughter-as-minister-says-animal-rights-come-before-religion-9135580.html

SAV Comment – well done Denmark; a government with guts; instead of being afraid to do things because of the old ‘religious rights’ talk.  If only the UK government were so brave – but then we do have Cameron leading the ‘be quieters’ !!

The UK is a Christian country.  The UK stuns animals before slaughter.  It should be undertaken for ALL animals slaughtered in the UK with no religious exemptions.  Stunning is the UK way; so if living in the UK, abide UK law and stun all animals before slaughter !!

Dead cat attached to cross found at church

[van id=”van/ns-acc/2015/02/03/RE-02TU_CNNA-ST1-10000000028746b7″]

CLERMONT, FL –  A bizarre Sunday morning in Florida after a dead animal is found attached to a cross at the Real Life Christian Church.

A woman working at the church found the cat and a message in red mentioning two different bible verses — “Thou shalt not make my father’s house a den of thieves. Read Matthew 7:3, you hypocrites.”

The woman took a few pictures before cleaning the scene and calling police.

The church released a statement saying:

“We are truly saddened by this inhumane act against one of God’s creatures. While we have no idea what would prompt someone to do something like this, we are praying for them and for those affected by it.”

Nearby residents were shocked by the incident, “Unfortunately we’ve got some fools who live in this world. That’s all I can say. They’re fools and hopefully they repent before their…

Obama Signs New Executive Order Restricting Religious Freedom

Nwo Report

ZObama

It’s gone relatively unreported, but on Monday, President Obama signed yet another executive order- this time targeting the religious rights of Americans.
The new executive edict issued by Obama prohibits federal contractors from discriminating against homosexuals and those who identify as a different gender than that which they were assigned at birth.
The move is sure to delight many on the left and even some on the right; however, the executive order is sure to rile those who value the Constitution’s separation of powers as the president is supposed to serve as a law enforcer, not a lawmaker.
President Obama signed the executive order, bypassing Congress entirely, against the wishes of many religious institutions that argued that the order ought to maintain an exemption for religious institutions who have charged that the executive order could compel them to violate their religious tenets.
Obama hailed the executive order on Monday, saying,

Nepal: Religion ? – ‘Gadhimai’ Festival This November. 250,000 Animals Could Be Mass Slaughtered In the Name of Religion. Take Action Now.

‘Gadhimai’ Festival

Tens of thousands of buffalo were corralled into a gigantic pen.

Then, 200 slaughtermen wielding swords were let loose into the enclosure. The buffalo were beheaded, one by one. It’s no easy task to behead a buffalo – and for many it took more than one attempt.

These are the reports that came out of the ‘Gadhimai’ Festival in Nepal in 2009, where an estimated quarter of a million farm animals were inhumanely slaughtered as part of the sacrifice festival.

‘Gadhimai’, as the festival is known, is set to take place again this Nov.

‘Gadhimai’ takes place every 5 years in the Bara District of Nepal, south of Kathmandu. For 250 years the festival has continued relatively unchallenged, but as news of the inhumane slaughter has spread internationally, animal welfare advocates have spoken out against it.

The Nepalese Government provides significant funding, which makes this festival possible on…

Quote of the Day: Animal Cruelty Apparently Increases Popularity of Church #WisconsinShame

The Paw Report

“This has been our tradition for 44 years. This is our big draw for our parish picnic. If we don’t have the pig rassle down here, we don’t hardly see any people come to our church,” said Bruce Learman, pig rassle co-chair.

Original photo without captions by Tom McPhee, taken at the pig rassle, August 10, 2014.

Over the weekend, St. Patrick’s Parish in Wisconsin hosted it’s 44th annual “pig rassle,” in which participants — young and old — “rassled” pigs in mud and barrels. Almost 40 pigs were forced to participate, and over 60,000 people signed the petition against the event. A group of protesters were there to document the event and to bear witness to the cruelty. In a day or two, I’ll be posting the observations and experiences of the protesters who attended.

Regarding the above quote, I have some thoughts. Justifying that animal cruelty…

Brain signals have shown that calves do appear to feel pain when slaughtered according to Jewish and Muslim religious law, strengthening the case for adapting the practices to make them more humane.

“I think our work is the best evidence yet that it’s painful,” says Craig Johnson, who led the study at Massey University in Palmerston North, New Zealand.

Johnson summarised his results last week in London when receiving an award from the UK Humane Slaughter Association. His team also showed that if…
