Social Justice and Immigration

“Wait? Why are you writing on these political hot topics? You’re supposed to teach women to love their husbands and be homemakers, not delve into the political scene?” I try not to “delve” into it often (but I may if I feel something is important) but I have seen something disconcerting to me among many famous women bloggers and teachers/preachers. Instead of teaching women to love and obey their husbands, love their children, be modest, discreet, good, sober, keepers at home, with meek and quiet spirits, they have taken on the mantle of social justice.

It sounds great. Feed the hungry. Clothe the poor. Petition our government to do the same. What is a government’s role according to the Bible:

“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience” (Romans 13:1-7).

The government’s chief aim is to protect its people from harm from inside forces (police and firemen do this), set rules that govern the nation for protection (legislative branches), and protect from outside evil (military fights this). Period. Policemen, military, and firemen are the men who are called to protect our nation from harm. Yes, America has always welcomed those who are poor and this is good but its first priority is to protect the people “that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior” (1 Timothy 2:3).

God commands Christians to be the ones to help the poor and needy by giving them money and any help they are able to give, not governments. Big, intrusive governments hurt people. They don’t ever make people’s lives better by redistributing wealth because they are a cold, hard, and lifeless organism that wastes money and resources, unlike the Church is supposed to be.

Now, what about all these women teachers who have taken over social justice as their cause. Let’s go to C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters for some answers. The Devil speaking to one of his followers: “About the general connection between Christianity and politics, our position is more delicate. Certainly we do not want men to allow their Christianity to flow over into their political life, for the establishment of anything like a really JUST society would be a major disaster. On the other hand we do want, and want very much, to make men treat Christianity as a means; preferably, of course, as a means to their own advancement, but, failing that, as a meant to anything – even to social justice.” (I capitalized just.)

What is a just society in God’s eyes? Women are keepers at home, loving and obeying their husbands, loving their children, sober, good, discreet, and chaste with gentle and quiet spirits. They work quietly within their homes having hands that stay busy cooking, cleaning, training, loving, and serving. Single women are holy in body and in spirit (1 Corinthians 7:34). All just societies are built upon strong families. When families crumble, so do nations. As godly families, we are lights in a dark world, helping any one and in any way that we can but mostly that others come to know the Savior of their soul.

We aren’t continually leaving our families to go “preach” to large gatherings of women like the IF Gatherings that teach nothing about building strong marriages and families.

“IF’s leaders insist that biblical Christianity has failed as a viable work of God and that God and they are bringing forth a cure—New Christianity.

I fear that IF’s excellent adventure is advertisement for a mass departure from God’s Word. Rather than having their faith built up, participants are encouraged to question ‘traditional’ Christianity. And those who are giving the answers—the IF women—are unfortunately getting their information from emergents and mystics who present a different gospel and another Jesus.

It is addictive, this linguistic confection. The mind is overcome with giddiness. But is it of God? Or is it rather a ‘beautiful’ seduction? I believe the latter is true.”

These women remind me of last phrase: “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein” (Jeremiah 6:16). Let us, as godly women, walk in the old paths and the good way described perfectly in God’s Word!

When governments do what they are called to do, the Church is doing what it is supposed to do (including helping the widows and orphans), women are doing what they are supposed to be doing, and men what they are called to do, then we will have a JUST society and not until then.

  1. So I have a question about the passage from Romans you posted. Does that mean Christiann should never resist their government no matter what they’re doing? I don’t think that could be right, but I can’t find any other possible meaning in that.

  2. The Apostle Paul was a citizen of a very corrupt government when he wrote this. Yesterday, I listened to the Dennis Prager show for a bit because he had a man named David Horowitz on it. David used to be a leftist raised by communist parents. His eyes were opened finally and he saw how evil it all was. (Everything is evil when God is kicked out.)

    He became a conservative and couldn’t understand where all the student marches, sit-ins, and groups that fought against the government were on the right. They didn’t exist and still don’t in nearly the measure that the left has because the right understands the government’s purpose and instead of openly rebelling against it like the left is doing right now, they speak up for the life of the unborn and many other things that they were completely opposed to during the Obama administration but they certainly didn’t cause the mayhem that the left loves to do which is all orchestrated by big money (George Soros and the likes) to oppose everything the right tries to do. This is wrong.

    Instead of disrupting society and having temper tantrums as the left is doing, we pray for our government and the leaders as we are commanded to do for our God is mighty to hear and to save. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

  3. The only time believers don’t obey the government, is if the government is telling you to do something against God’s word. Nothing comes before his word. We are to take a stand for God’s word and obey Him and we will be blessed by it. For example if they make something a law that is against Gods word then we as believers don’t submit to that.

  4. Very well said. One can object to their democratic government, and if the give demands evil of you, you must resist. But how many mountains are made of mole hills since Trump was elected. A temporary stop to immigration from seven terrorist filled countries and the left goes into disruption mode? I fear we are headed to a paralyzing Europeon model where the left strikes and disrupts if it cannot have its way no matter how much of a minority position they hold. All stirreducible up by paid organizers funded by some bilionaire idealogue who makes billions off of disruption.

  5. God describes these people perfectly in His Word: “”But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.” (2 Peter 2:10)

  6. Great post!! We just need to keep on praying for our nation and our president…I must admit I had a hard time praying for the previous administration,because of what they stood for,but God is the one who raises up and puts down right? You keep up the good work that you and your husband do!! Praying for you both!

  7. A thoughtful and well-written blog. I do believe the enemy is exploiting and confusing the good intentions of many a compassionate Christian to bring his own agenda.
