Media reports are swirling with contradictory stories about who immigrants and refugees are, why they’ve come to Canada, and what our response should be. But the Bible’s call is clear:
When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God. (Lev. 19:33-34)
Welcoming refugee claimants at Canada’s borders is not only a legal requirement, it’s a faithful response to our Christian calling to love our neighbours from all around the world. Cut through the political spin and learn the facts about refugees and immigrants in Canada.
