Refugee?

I have been reading and listening to some of the most inane and absolutely stupid comments about Jesus and his human parents, Jesus Son of God by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin named Mary and with a human man as his step father. I hear that it is a good thing there was no fence or wall in Egypt otherwise Jesus would have died. Then there is the comment that Jesus and his parents were refugee’s.

Here is the reality of the story of the birth of Jesus Christ, his parents were forced to go to Bethlehem by a decree of the Ceasar (ruler of the empire) that said everyone was to go to their ancestral home to be registered (a census), and then pay their taxes. Sorry, no refugee status there, they were going to Bethlehem because Joseph was of the house of David, whose home town before becoming King was Bethlehem.

2 years give or take a month or so, Joseph and Mary and Jesus are now living in Bethlehem, and Joseph is probably working as a carpenter on one of the many projects that King Herod had going on at the time. Sages from the East come to Jerusalem and stop at the palace asking where the King of the Jews who was born could be found. The King asks his wise men and religious leaders the question and they say, in Bethlehem. Herod sends them on their way, tell me when you have found the child that I too may go to worship him. They journey to Bethlehem and the star leads them to the house where the family is living. They give gifts, gold, frankincense and Myrrh all very good gifts, both frankincense and myrrh were worth a great deal of local currency.

God warns the men from the East to go another route back home, and then tells Joseph to take Mary and Jesus and flee to Egypt, because Herod wants to kill Jesus. That gold that they got would help them along the way and feed and cloth them until Joseph finds work in Egypt. Just for the assistance of the poor uneducated Demonrats, again, not refugees, no wall because Egypt was a part of the Roman Empire, they were not entering the country illegally they were able to pay their way as recognized citizens of the Roman Empire.

It is a shame that these people want to politicize the birth narrative of Jesus and his family, they have such a hatred of Donald Trump and the Republican party that they will do anything to put them down. Trying to make Joseph, Mary and Jesus into modern day refugee’s is just a typical cheap shot, but even worse it is trying to say that God was powerless in the face of the situation. I listened to Rep. Gutierrez as he almost screamed that it was a good thing there was no wall in Egypt or Jesus would have died. That statement said that God did not know what God was about, and that this man knew the truth. The Holy Family would have been slaughtered if there had been a wall. What total nonsense, I am glad that he at least will not be back in the House come the new year.

Their hatred of our President has blinded them to the foolishness they are practicing. What do you think? Are these folks really unhinged?

I saw it on tv. The congressman was way out of line and angry. Aghast says it. I am beginning to think that liberalism is a mental defect. That they stoop to demeaning our Lord and Savior, our belief in salvation, and life with God after death in such a mean and hurtful way tells me the country needs God more than ever.
