Is the United States a Christian nation?

Is the Unites States a Christian nation?  The best way to answer that question is to look at what is happening in America and then compare that with what the Bible says.

In Roe v Wade the Supreme Court ruled that any woman who was pregnant had a right to end the pregnancy by aborting her baby.  The Bible calls children a blessing from God. Read the rest of this entry

Saving social security

The social security system in the United States will soon face a financial crisis.  Retirees are living longer than they have in the past.  At one time there were 41 workers paying into the system for each retiree receiving benefits; there are now about 3 workers for each retiree.

One contributing factor to this trend is the legalization of abortion in the United States.  Since the Roe vs. Wade decision almost 60 million babies have been aborted. If they had been allowed to live many of them would now be working and paying into the social security system.  Ending abortion might not be enough to solve the system’s problems but it would certainly help.

Even if abortion were ended it would be almost 20 years before the effects would be felt.  But there is another way we can find more workers to support social security.  That is to encourage immigration and open our borders to refugees who have been forced to flee their homelands.  We should encourage these people to settle in the United States, find jobs, and begin paying social security.

There are a lot of public discussion of abortion and immigration but I don’t recall anyone discussing the affects of these topics on social security.  I have also heard a lot of discussion the the social security crisis but I don’t recall anyone suggesting changing the laws on abortion and immigration as possible solutions.  If our leaders realized how these subjects are interconnected they might find it easier to solve the problems connected with them.

Any American who cares about the welfare of our retirees should oppose abortion and support increased immigration but Christians have other reasons to do this.  I have made two posts in this blog about those reasons.

Immigration and evangelism

Good Muslim, bad Muslim

When police interrogate a suspect they sometimes use a technique called “good cop,bad cop.”  The “bad” cop questions the suspect harshly and accused him of being guilty and refusing to cooperate.  Then the “good” cop takes his turn with the suspect, showing him sympathy and sometimes even agreeing with him that the bad cop is unfair.  This creates a bond of sympathy between the suspect and the good cop and can even lead to the suspect giving him the information he is after.

Immigration and evangelism

Every year large numbers of people come to the United States looking for jobs.  Because of laws restricting immigration most of these job seekers aren’t able to enter the country legally but their need is so great they come here anyway.  As a result there are millions of illegal immigrants in this country and one of the major problems facing the government is what to do about them.

It is unlikely that any government leader will ever think of looking in the Bible for a solution to the problem.  That is unfortunate because the Bible does have the solution.
