    In the Med, off the coast of Turkey. One of my friends, the lady holding the woman's hand, posted this photo. Perhaps we Christians in America should spend more time witnessing to refugees and less time condemning them.

    You do realize by putting her picture and general location on the open web, you've put her potentially in the cross-hairs of some Salafist.

    'Perhaps' if we spent more time witnessing to those who are rioting in Charlotte, the next time there is a police shooting-- no matter that it was a black cop who shot a black man wielding a gun the suspect's daughter screamed was a book-- maybe they will 'turn the other cheek.' In the same way, teach more refugees to fly planes and detect explosive substances, they should be become good little citizens. Won't they? And of course we know that everyone's 'religious conversion' is totally sincere.

    Seems quite self-righteous, presumptuous and assuming, and contrary to Matthew 7:1 to imply others don't witness to 'refugees'.

    I wonder just how many 'refugees' the OP has witnessed to? (Please don't tell us, thanks).

    Let's just think of others as made in God's image and not place any group as a higher status, while rebuking others via a false and judgmental assumption.

    Yes all are made in God's image. My comment about witnessing is in regard to those on the BB who are so anti-refugees and want to force them to go home. That, IMHO, is not witnessing nor is it Christian. If all are made in God's image then we all are God's children whether we know it or not and we should treat all God's children with Christ-like love. We should treat them as we want to be treated if we were in their situation.
