This article considers questions such as what is the Bible's attitude to foreigners, to immigrants, and refugees, and what does the gospel have to say on the subject. Biblical law is remarkably generous towards strangers. The Scriptures speak of welcoming the stranger, in full knowledge of the risks, because of God's love for all.
Reflecting on the influx on immigrants from other countries into the West, this article seeks to keep the balance in thinking about national security, welfare, Christian care and morality. The author expresses the need for a rethinking among Christians on border security and immigration, with a call to show care and love to strangers.
