Afghan Reachout

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 7, 2021

     THE FLOOD OF REFUGEES FROM AFGHANISTAN OFFERS FOLLOWERS OF JESUS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY.

WE CAN EITHER BEMOAN THAT MORE PEOPLE ARE COMING INTO THE COUNTRY – LEGALLY AND ESPECIALLY ILLEGALLY — OR WE CAN ACT AS JESUS WOULD HAVE US ACT. YES, WEED-OUT ANY TERRORISTS, BUT THEN WHAT?

     CHURCHES AND INDIVIDUALS HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO REACHOUT TO ESPECIALLY THE MUSLIMS AMONG THE REFUGEES AND DEMONSTRATE THE LOVE OF GOD TO THEM. SHARE A MEAL. GET THOSE WHO DON’T SPEAK ENGLISH WELL, OR AT ALL, ENROLLED IN ENGLISH CLASSES AT CHURCH. IF YOURS DOESN’T HAVE ONE, START ONE.

     WELCOME THEIR CHILDREN AND HELP WITH THEIR EDUCATION IN HOME OR PRIVATE SCHOOLS. MOST PARENTS LOVE THEIR KIDS AND APPRECIATE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO HELP THEM SUCCEED IN LIFE.

     GIVEN HOW THE TALIBAN AND ISLAMIC TERRORISM HAS BEHAVED, WE HAVE A CHANCE TO SHOW THEM THE REAL LOVE OF A REAL GOD AND HOW HE HAS DEMONSTRATED THAT LOVE BY SENDING HIS SON TO DIE ON A CROSS AS THE PERFECT SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS.

     WE ARE AMERICANS. WE WHO ARE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS OUGHT TO BE FIRST IN LINE TO WELCOME THE AFGHANS AND TO SHARE AND DEMONSTRATE GOD’S LOVE TO THEM. THINK OF THE DIFFERENCE THIS WOULD MAKE IN THEIR LIVES AND YOURS. I’M CAL THOMAS.
