John Piper recently preached at the Bethlehem 2017 Conference for Pastors + Church Leaders. In his message he says the gospel believing church “marches to a different drum” and in response it should say to the world by its’ actions: “If our government fears and excludes you… we will come to you.” Check out this clip:
Fear might hinder government policy, but it should never affect Christian witness to the hurting peoples of the world. http://www.desiringgod.org/we-will-come-to-you
No matter what governments decide to do, we must not give into the same kind of fear. We still have a calling to “go,” to reach out and care for the least of these, as acts of worship.
