The migrant crisis has been dominating news media for many days now. Everyone is hollering that children should not be separated from their parents, or locked up with their parents. This ‘crisis’ brings many hot issues together, and this posting is too short to address more then one issue. So, does the Bible give any guidance at all about the issue of separating children of illegal migrants from their parents?
In answering this question, two scriptures (among others) are considered. They are:
You shall have one law for him who does anything unintentionally, for him who is native among the people of Israel and for the stranger who sojourns among them. Numbers 15:29 (ESV)
…But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by law as transgressors. James 2:9 (ESV)
