A regular theme when speaking of America is that a proof of her greatness is the number of people trying to get in. Is this truly an indication of how great a nation is? All over Europe the westernised states like the UK, France, Ireland, Germany, and others are facing massive immigration problems. On a somewhat regular basis African immigrants ship themselves in in shipping containers or try to make it ins non-seaworthy vessels. Hundreds have died trying to sneak in. Perhaps there is a point here, but it is not limited to America. There does seem to be a desire to live in westernised, wealthy nations where there is a chance of improvement. Is a nation great simply because it is rich? How does a Christian in a westernised nation respond to the problem of illegal, even liberal immigration? Should we be willing to share our wealth? Should we build walls to keep the desperate, poverty stricken people of he world out? Is there any solution?
