Dr. Daniel Carroll R. (Rodas) on Immigration and the People of God: A Biblical Foundation

Open in a new tab Save file

One of the word of the year lists last year consisted of xenophobia, a "fear or hatred of foreigners, people from different cultures, or strangers." In light of the worldwide migration, and of the fear associated with immigration, it is not surprising. But is it biblical, is it the appropriate response of a believer, of an Evangelical? Interestingly, one of the biblical commands is the opposite of this, evidence in the term philoxenia, a "love for strangers or foreigners; hospitality, kindness to strangers." Join us as Dr. Daniel Carroll explains the response of believers in an increasingly xenophobic society.
