Most Liberals don't know this, but it's not easy to get into Heaven. Not all Liberals believe God exists or that there's Heaven and Hell. But the ones who do, some of whom are within the Church, have un-bliblical beliefs (and that's why they're liberals) that are dangerous, not just for their souls, but for us as Americans.
Father Edward Beck is a Roman Catholic priest and a CNN commentator. Monday evening in an interview on Cuomo Prime Time talking about "nationalism" and the mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH, he made wrong statements about what the Bible says and who Jesus is relative to "nationalism" and Christianity. If you didn't think carefully about what he said, you'd think that death is the only condition to enter into Heaven and therefore being alive is the only condition to enter America (I wish unborn babies were viewed the same way). But it's not.
Here's what Father Beck said:
"['Christian' and 'nationalism'] is a contradiction of terms. You can't put 'nationalism' and 'Christian' together. Jesus was definitely not a nationalist. The very essence of Jesus is crossing borders. Go into the Samaritan woman. Go into the stranger. How can you put 'Christian' and 'nationalist' together?"
Easy, Father Beck. By obeying God's word.
There's a lot from this short transcript here. Let me get something out of the way real quick: Jesus did NOT go "into" the Samaritan woman or the stranger. He went TO Samaria - where He met the Samaritan woman at the well - to PREACH. So Father Beck here needs to watch his mouth - he essentially blasphemed against God.
Secondly, Jesus didn't cross any borders - the area was under Roman rule. He never stepped foot outside of the Roman Empire - He never crossed the border because doing so would have been AGAINST Roman law.
But most importantly, Father Beck is WRONG about who Jesus is. It's true that He went to Samaria to preach the Gospel. But it's NOT true that you have to imply from His actions that He expects everybody to join Him in Heaven as a result of His preaching. Preaching alone doesn't do it. If you don't believe in Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you cannot enter into Heaven. Heaven, you see, is a very restricted place. Unbelievers are not allowed.
Therefore, God HIMSELF is quite selective as to who gets into His Kingdom. There's only one way - and it's this one way that Liberals attack as too restrictive and the reason they call us bigots. But you see, I didn't write the Bible - God did. So if the Bible is the Word of God, and if we believe it's infallible (which Roman Catholics believe as well) and in it you find that there's only one way to Heaven and that's trusting Jesus Christ, what makes this Priest think that unbelievers will enter into Heaven simply because Jesus preached the Gospel everywhere He went? And what makes him think that Jesus would want America to have open borders when the Kingdom of God doesn't have open borders?. Jesus also said "he who has ears to hear, let him hear". And this means that some people will not have the ear to hear Him, therefore they will not enter into Heaven.
The first time in history when government and boundaries were established was in the Garden of Eden. The Book of Genesis tells us that Adam and Eve were created by God in His image and were living freely in the Garden, working the land and enjoying life. There was only ONE rule - one thing they weren't allowed to do: eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. This was the only thing they weren't allowed to do...but they failed miserably when they both decided to eat from the tree. What happened next? God KICKED ADAM AND EVE OUT of the Garden...and "at the east of the garden of Eden He placed the cherubim and a flaming sword that turned every way to guard the way to the tree of life" (Gen 3:24)...to prevent unlawful entrance...
In other words, God Himself established the boundaries of, and entry barrier to, the garden of Eden such that Adam and Eve (and the rest of us) would not be able to enter again...unless certain conditions are met.
But, you see, Father Beck has his Theology wrong. It doesn't take a genius - particularly one who claims to know the Word of God - to realize that God is restrictive. And He's restrictive for a reason. We all fall short and if you think that doing good deeds will convince God to let you in, think again. Because the Bible is clear - you only get into Heaven if you trust Jesus Christ. Else, your final destination is Hell.
So in criticizing Trump this "Father" (the only Father, by the way, is in Heaven and that's God, not Edward Beck), is not only misunderstanding what the Bible says and opposing Trump politically in the process, but he's also teaching the wrong things and getting in the way of the Gospel. Gospel is Greek for "good news". The good news is that the only thing required to enter into Heaven is trust in Jesus (you're required ONE thing just like Adam and Eve were required ONE thing) - once you trust and understand the pain He went through just so that we would be saved, then repentance and obedience come in. We're all sinners and we all deserve Hell. But Jesus makes it possible for us to be saved.
The problem with this principle is that Liberals don't like the "obedience" part - they want to kill babies or have gay marriage. They go by preference, not principle. But that's only because they don't understand how much Jesus loves us. Imagine someone saves your life - donates one of his organs or saves you from drowning. If your savior asks you to obey him - and you know he only has good intentions for you because he is holy (he doesn't have one shred of evil in his bones) so everything he tells you to do is for your own ultimate good - wouldn't you obey him?
And part of obedience is to protect the land. God established a barrier of entry into His Kingdom - America must do the same. God kicks you out of Heaven if you don't believe in Jesus. America must kick illegals out of our country if they don't obey our laws. It's that simple.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life"
