Acts 17:26-27 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; NKJV
It is evident by Scripture that God ordained the nations and boundaries for the peoples of the earth. It was His idea! Men have the arrogance to believe that people groups are of human invention and, on one hand, the anthropologist curses the western peoples and their desire to preserve social norms and cultural identity while subsequently decrying the need to preserve tribal integrity and customs. Although the need to preserve the culture of a group of primitives living in isolation in, let’s say, an Amazon rainforest, is top priority to them, western culture, on the other hand, is a scourge and needs to be eliminated. The evil is that modern men seem to place boundaries where they are least needed while pulling down those that are absolutely imperative.
One of the most ironic such subjects is marriage. Modern Americans uphold the sanctity of marriage for same-sex couples in such a way as they march in mass, lobby and make all kinds of noise in support of it while, simultaneously, spurning the institution of marriage, demeaning it, and ultimately rejecting it as a necessity in the lives of heterosexual unions! Walls are built around lifestyles that are unnatural, unholy, and without benefit to society as a whole, while they are being pulled down on the institution of the family – for which there is no lack of value and without which, the nation that does so, will collapse!
In like manner, the rights of the Islamic peoples who are amongst us is being promoted insomuch that children are presented tenants of the Islamic faith in public schools. In the same space of time, the Christians are told to keep their Bibles and religion to themselves. Separation of state, don’t you know?!!! The left built a wall called “separation of church and state” to supposedly protect the innocents from harmful religion only to breach the same wall in order to promote the most harmful of all religions in the modern world. Does this make sense or have I lost my own mind?
Speaking of borders: what of our own national border? Modern Americans and Europeans can be heard crying for the taking down of all immigrational roadblocks such as physical borders, enforcement of laws, and other such trivia – in their minds. Why, … worrying about potential terrorists, criminals and undesirables that may be slipping into our towns and neighborhoods is xenophobic and not intelligent!Everyone know that! In the same breath, they raise up the standard of Christian charity and love in our face and call us out for the supposed violation of the same – this out of the same mouths that they condemn Christianity in any other context. Rich, … isn’t it?! Does this all sound like madness or am I alone in this world? The borders of nations are pulled down while fences are being built around churches and values that have been established for thousands of years.
Barriers are also being destroyed that have protected our children for the entire history of this nation. Biological (according to science, I might add!) boys were to use the boy’s room, and biological girls were to use the girls room. Simple, right? Not so fast! The fact is that we cannot determine sexual identity any longer. We might as well all defecate in a big hole in the middle of the room! Privacy is being sacrificed on the altar of excess and privilege for the few at the expense of the many. Sad, indeed.
Boundaries on drugs, social norms, religious faith, constitutional rights, and even our thoughts and opinions are being violated. Walls and borders are important. It is vital that we understand how motive is key to the question of validity when it comes to barriers. Liberty is at the core of this matter. Is a wall or boundary built to provide the greatest measure of safety and security for those who may find sanctuary behind it?
Women march for the right to free work and freedom to abort their children. Freedom is of the utmost value – even to the point of murder. The same march in support of Islam that subjugates women and makes them slaves and mere property to be used and abused. Shockingly obscene and nonsensical!!!
I have heard Progressives curse a southern border wall and compare it to the Berlin wall! Now this is ludicrous. Why? Motive of course. Is the motive of a wall to protect society or enslave it? Is the end of the wall, freedom for a small minority at the expense of the vast majority or visa-versa? These are important and very rational questions that need to be asked. For example, the Berlin wall was not meant to keep bad people out. It was built to keep good people in. It was a prison wall of sorts.Although it wasn’t criminals being walled off, it was citizens in East Berlin that were being kept from a free society. Germans who were under the thumb of communism were prevented from experiencing freedom in the west. America, on the other hand, would build a wall, not to keep free people in but rather to keep the few that may want to cross our border to do us harm on the outside. In other words, our motive is to remain free and safe behind our wall unlike the motives of the communist authoritarians in East Berlin!
We have to have common sense and a moral compass in order to know when to build a wall and when to tear them down. It seems that modern Americans are lacking in these areas! We must be careful. Otherwise we will tear down the wrong walls and equally build misguided walls.The result? We will find ourselves living as the prisoners of our own devices!
