Sojourners’ founder Jim Wallis calls the U.S. “the great seducer, the great captor and destroyer of human life, the great master of humanity in its totalitarian claims and designs”. In past years, his organization has rallied to “liberation theology” and supported communist regimes in Vietnam and Nicaragua.
Today they fight America from within by promoting continued immigration. The organization took the lead in founding Christians for Comprehensive Immigration Reform, a pro-amnesty coalition.
It should be noted that Sojourners’ talk of “sharing bread and resources” does not require them to practice the poverty of St. Francis. On the contrary, Lamb lists a dozen organizations busy sharing bread and resources with Sojourners. They include the MBNA Foundation and George Soros’s Open Society Institute.
Openly leftist Churches and denominations are not alone in promoting demographic transformation. The ostensibly”conservative” Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS)—hasresolved that Christ’s Great Commission (“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…”) requires us to petition federal and state government for the funding of refugee, immigrant and asylee programs.
“It is the will of the Lord”, proclaimed the 1995 LCMS convention, “that His people reach out to the immigrants that He has placed in their midst [my emphasis—R.D] and seek ways to serve them.”
It is instructive to contrast the words of American Christian organizations with those of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC).
American Christians see themselves as Good Samaritans, humbly carrying out the gospel’s injunctions to love their neighbors. But the NHCLC speaks of “political empowerment” and “social transformation”.
Does anyone seriously imagine that once Hispanics (or more accurately their self-appointed leaders) have gained power and transformed American society, they will suddenly turn around and start playing Good Samaritan to us?
