Christian Radio Commentator: Bible Supports Concept of Secure Borders
Steve Marr's online commentaries are called "Business Proverbs." His syndicated radio program by the same name is heard on 1,000 radio outlets worldwide. According to Marr, the Bible supports the idea that nations have the right and responsibility to secure their borders.
I agree whole-heartedly. You can still be compassionate while insisting that laws get followed. The bible is very clear about submitting to the ruling authorities on matters of law:
Titus 3:1 Remind them to be in subjection to rulers and to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work,
1 Peter 2:13 Therefore subject yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether to the king, as supreme; Peter's Second Letter
Romans 13:1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
