In a recent post, I shared the ethical, political, and theological struggle that I feel about immigration policy. Dan Trabue and Rich Holton commented repeatedly about the importance of placing God before country and not compromising my loyalty to Christ by national self-interest.
It is a praiseworthy attitude. If only more Christian leaders of Nazi Germany had heeded this call instead of serving as tools of the Nazi regime, some or much or even all of the horror of the Third Reich might have been avoided.
But America is not Nazi Germany. Despite our failings and sins, America has done more good for the world than any other nation on earth. And so I am a little hesitant to pull the trigger on that country.
