The Pope recently weighed in on US immigration policy and said he feels America should be more compassionate toward illegal aliens. It’s as though he thinks our higher standard of living somehow obligates the US to open its boarders. While I appreciate the Pope’s passion for the disadvantaged, it is not his place to judge a nation or direct its path. He should be mindful that positions and wealth, or lack thereof, of all the nations is controlled by God. The psalmist said, “For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise. God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne. The nobles of the nations assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, for the kings of the earth belong to God; he is greatly exalted” (Psalm 7:7-9 NIV).
