May I please invite you to read my new article on Australian asylum seeker policy, published online with Eternity Newspaper, ‘The PNG Solution and Biblical Ethics‘?
A note to Christian readers, if I may: This is an issue upon which Scripture is crystal clear and if we Christians would submit our thinking to Scripture upon this topic, the political impact will be immense. One third of the global population is Christian – if this segment of the population saw refugee issues with the compassion of Christ, refugee politics would be radically different globally. To this end would Christian Aussie readers please consider sharing this article and making its presence known in every way you can? Social media, church bulletins, email, etc. For what it’s worth, I think that this article is my most mature discussion of this topic to date.
(Thank you again to Nth American readers, for your patience with this blog series.)
