Re: “Here’s a wall we really need to build,” (TNT letter, 7/6).
The writer says there should be a wall between religion and government and that God is love and acceptance, not exclusion and condemnation.
Biblical history does not support this claim. God set the rules with the Ten Commandments and as long as people obeyed them He was generous, kind and protective.
If they disobeyed, He demanded repentance. Christ’s message was the same.
The Bible tells us that we must fear God’s ability to remove our blessings if we choose to reject His authority. Our forefathers recognized that God must be at the helm of a fair and just government. We must protect ourselves as the world will not do it for us.
We processed immigrants through Ellis Island and sifted out those carrying diseases, etc.
It is foolhardy not to set up the same controls on our southern border, and a wall is a logical solution.
It is fair to all immigrants and a safer alternative than the chaotic and uncontrollable situation we are currently experiencing.
