Sloppy Agape and Illegal Immigration

16 Jul, 2010  |  Written by  |  under Christianity, Politics

Before getting into this discussion let us first take a look at this word, Agape.  It is a Greek word that most church goers have heard countless sermons with this word as the subject.  The word Agape is translated in our English New Testament texts as simply “love”.

Agape love is an unconditional love; a God like love.  There are also two other Greek words that are translated into English simply as love in our New Testament.  The other two Greek words that are translated as “love” in the New Testament are, Eros and Philos.  Eros is an erotic or sensual love.  Philos is a love like that between dear friends.

The reason that this is important is because many Christian leaders and so-called Christian leaders seem to be confused about the differences in the types of love that are found in scripture, as well as to whom these apply.  This is incorrect or sloppy understanding of love is tainting their views and teachings concerning Illegal Aliens.

One verse that is often quoted by proponents of Illegal Aliens being granted easy access to citizenship is the last portion of Matthew 19:19 which says, “Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself”.  Even without looking at the Greek text, one can ascertain easily that this is referring to Agape love.  It is not natural for humans to love others, even those they truly love, the same as they love themselves.  This kind of love demands help from God Himself for we humans cannot exhibit this kind of love with the Almighty’s help.  A quick look at the Greek text also reveals that yes indeed; the verse is referring to Agape love.

I have two questions for liberals now that use this particular verse, Matthew 19:19 to prove that we should throw open the borders to everyone because after all we are commanded to love our neighbors, Mexican citizens, as ourselves.

1.)  Was Jesus commanding this to the government of the day or to His followers who we call Christians today?

2.)  Do you leftists really want the government to attempt to display a God kind of love toward everyone?

If you’re a leftist and you answered “Yes” to the second question, doesn’t it go against the separation of church and state, that you hold dear, for the government to display a God kind of love toward people?  By the way Mr. or Mrs. Liberal, find for me the wording or concept in the constitution of this separation of church and state other then the 1st Amendment which tells the government to keep its grubby hands off of the church and its matters.  The constitution never tells the church to stay out of politics or the government’s business.

Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church said,

The role of the prophetic tradition is to challenge laws and structures that appear to be unjust. . . . We are meant to see every human being as our neighbor.

So the government is meant to see every human being as our neighbor, or the government is supposed to have UNCONDITIONAL LOVE for EVERY human being?  This is so ludicrous that only a mind numbed robot of leftist propaganda would buy into it.

Just as an aside, the book of 1Timothy 3:2 says, “A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife”.  One wife?  I’m guessing that the Episcopal Church is abiding by scripture and that Mr. Katherine Jefferts Schori has a lady like name for a man.

Exit Question: Why all the debate about this in the first place when you leftist Democrat socialists will vote before a bill is written, lie about what will be in it and then never read it?
