Today in the United States, millions of men, women, and children are considered 'illegal aliens' under federal law. While the presence of these migrants runs against the law, many arrive in response to US demand for cheap labor and stay to contribute to community life. This book asks where migrants stand within God's world and how authorities can govern immigration with Christian ethics. The author tracks the emergence of the concept of the illegal alien in federal US law while exploring Christian ways of understanding belonging, government, and relationships with neighbors. This is a thought-provoking book that provides a fresh response to the difficult issue of illegal immigration in the United States through the context of Christian theology.

BEING ILLEGAL IN A STRANGE CUNTRY WASN'T EASY, BUT IF YOU JUST HAVE FAITH AND HOLD ON TO YOUR INTEGRITY BE OPTISMISTIC NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER QUIT SOMEWHERE UP AHEAD THERE IS HOPE WAITING FOR YOU NO MATTER HOW DARK IT SEEMS JUST PRAY AND BELIEVE YOU WILL RECEIVE HELP FROM THE INVISIBLE HANDS Being in a strange country far away from home is not for the faint hearted, I felt so afraid I hope and trust that through my experience you will know who Jesus is, he is a rewarder to them that diligently seek him there is hope in Jesus, there is life, there is peace, joy and happiness, if you only wait on Him. Through all my ups and down I learn how to lean upon Jesus, when men on earth have fail JESUS NEVER failed, He is infallible, I met some interesting characters on my way some were insignificant and some significant but thank God they all played a part in my journey no matter how bad it seems they all pass through my life for a reason. Whatever anyone done you in life be quick to forgive until it hurts no more, unforgiveness make you bitter and angry every day, when the other person is happy you spent your time been miserable, you have to learn how to forgive for when your ways are pleasing to God He make your enemy be at peace with you.

Nation sovereignty, an integral part of God’s plan of protection and well-being for people within secure sovereign borders, is being assaulted all over the Western world. Nations Are God’s Idea exposes the assaulting forces: well-funded, well-positioned ideological agitators and their deceived, willing accomplices. Manipulating and weaponizing every area of concern—climate, environment, gender, immigration, property, poverty, race—and using every cultural outlet to advantage, the agitators seek to divide, overwhelm, and conquer. Where is God in all this? What is he doing? What is he calling his church to do? God is not silent! He is active! Speaking truth to the human condition and to every human concern, he has strategically positioned his people in the exact places of his choosing and authorized them to act in his name, with his power, for a time such as this. Nations Are God’s Idea reveals God’s perspective on all the major issues and shows biblical ways his people and all people of goodwill can counter, neutralize, and defeat the insanity engulfing Western nations today. The only question: Will people engage in the battle, or will they remain silent? Time will tell. Time is short.

On the highways and byways of every continent, hundreds of millions of immigrants are constantly on the move. Because of growing inequalities of wealth caused by unregulated economic globalization, political and ethnic conflicts, environmental degradation, instant communication, and viable means of transportation, more and more people are migrating than ever before. Crossing international borders, whether compelled or voluntarily, is a major characteristic of our present epoch. No countries or regions are immune from this reality. Facing the growing scope, complexity and impact of the current worldwide phenomenon, God's People on the Move seeks to develop appropriate biblical and missiological responses to the issue of human migration and dislocation. The book is divided into two major sections. Part one, "Biblical Perspectives on Migration and Mission," contains six essays that focus on various biblical themes or texts that deal with migration and mission. Part two, "Contemporary Issues of Migration and Mission," contains six essays that address different immigration issues around the world. The contributors to this volume are women and men from different ethnic backgrounds, working and living on five continents. The internationality of the contributors gives this volume a unique global perspective on migration and mission.

The book covers the Book of Daniel, the silent war against the Antichrist or the book the church does once. The church is talking about Satan, the False Messiah and the Antichrist. What would you do if you had a chance to take down the Antichrist? The Antichrist is going to make eighty two percent of the standing armies useless. What should you do? Are we cursed with the solution? Is this Antichrist going to rule? Is he going to destroy all that you worked for? This sounds very serious all this terrorism and this Antichrist. The only chance we truly have is the seven angels or seven stars of the church. They are the salvation of the planet. Learn how it will happen. In Mark 9:12, Jesus stated, "Elias will cometh first, and restoreth all things."

Has Gods Law, as defined by the Ten Commandments, been done away, as has been supposed by many? Does the new covenant allow free picking and choosing? Does the fourth commandment not matter anymore, or did God change the sabbath to another day? Are Christmas and Easter Gods holy days? Does grace make the Law unnecessary? Is it okay to erect a sun god statue and other images in our nation to represent liberty? Is God okay with the popular sexual lifestyles our nations Christian-professing people have? Should true Christians be pro-war? Is it okay to live richly on credit when one is only able to pay the interest? It is time for our nation to repent and turn back to our liberty-giver, the true God of Israel. Gods Law of Love is needed for liberty to thrive. The Ten Commandments still apply today. Find the thorough answers to the questions above and more within the pages of this book.

To liberals, A Conservative's Book of Proverbs, Parables and Prophecies is a book filled with hundreds of micro-aggressions. What a liberal calls a micro-aggression, a conservative calls good old fashioned “horse sense”. The author will use this “horse sense” to answer many of the unanswerable questions that has plagued the great philosophers of liberal history. Questions like: What is the meaning of life and what is the purpose for living? Is there life after death? Does God exist? If so, why would a God of love create death? Is God political? If so, is he a liberal or a conservative? What is the Kingdom of God? Is it a paradise on earth or is it in Heaven? What is the mark of God, the mark of man and the mark of the beast? Will there ever be peace on earth? If so how will it come? If the Gospel is good news, why is so much Bible prophecy bad news? These and other deep questions will be answered in this book. But the main purpose of this book is to give conservatives a hope in a bright future. And a faith to weather the liberal storm that will come before that bright future comes. A Conservative's Book of Proverbs, Parables and Prophecies will give the average Joe some insights on how to take on the liberal propaganda machine. If that average Joe can take on the demonizing liberal propaganda machine, then maybe the leadership of the Republican Party will have the courage to do the same. America needs the leadership of conservative average Joes to lead us out of our liberal funk. If America will repent of its liberal sins, then God will bless America again

"This timely and humane book redirects our attention from headlines that frame issues of ethnicity and religion as divisive and conflict-ridden to the quiet and unswerving work of persons of faith who promote understanding and compassion. As such, this book not only opens our eyes to the work of religious activists, it also provides insight into ourselves. It is an excellent study that offers much to scholars interested in immigration, religion, and social movements, and I certainly hope it will inspire policy makers and public officials as well."—Cecilia Menjivar, author of Fragmented Ties: Salvadoran Immigrant Networks in America "In this enlightening book, Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo explores the surprising ways in which diverse Muslim, Jewish, and Christian activists have engaged in projects of inclusion—from the workplaces of Los Angeles and Orange County to the San Diego-Tijuana border. In the process, rather than imposing new layers of monotheistic religious separatism, they advance the democratic ideals of American pluralism."—Rubén G. Rumbaut, co-author of Immigrant America and Legacies: The Story of the Immigrant Second Generation. "Three of the most persistent themes in American history are immigration, race, and religious devotion. Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo brilliantly examines their interaction in recent U.S. politics. How to protect and nurture new immigrants is perhaps our nation's most morally urgent problem right now, even while mainstream politicians seem obsessed instead with 'protecting' our borders. This book shows how a small number of brave people, taking their religion seriously, are grappling with these fundamental issues."—James M. Jasper, City University of New York "A much-needed corrective to our often skewed understanding of the role of religion in public life. With unusual sensitivity and perceptiveness, Hondagneu-Sotelo tells the compelling stories of activists from a variety of religious traditions who are guided by their faith to work for immigrant rights and social justice. They provide the rest of us with a 'moral blueprint' for living in an increasingly global world."—Peggy Levitt, author of Transnational Villagers "God's Heart Has No Borders makes vital contributions to current policy and scholarly debates about immigration. It will elevate the national conversation, providing a much-needed antidote to facile and polarizing readings of this complex phenomenon. Hondagneu-Sotelo's judicious and rigorous-yet-sensitive approach allows the voices, values, and experiences of religious activists working for immigrant rights to emerge with full moral force. At the scholarly level, she offers rich and fresh insights into the unique ways in which religion can contribute to transformative social action and civil public discourse."—Manuel A. Vásquez, co-editor of Immigrant Faiths: Transforming Religious Life in America

This issues-based reference work (available in both print and electronic formats) shines a spotlight on immigration policy in the United States. The U.S. is a nation of immigrants. Yet while the lofty words enshrined with the Statue of Liberty stand as a source of national pride, the rhetoric and politics surrounding immigration policy all-too-often have proven far less lofty. In reality, the apparently open invitation of Lady Liberty seldom has been without restriction. Throughout our history, impassioned debates about the appropriate scope and nature of such restriction have emerged and mushroomed, among politicians, among scholars of public policy, among the general public. In light of the need to keep students, researchers, and other interested readers informed and up-to-date on status of U.S. immigration policy, this volume uses introductory essays followed by point/counterpoint articles to explore prominent and perennially important debates, providing readers with views on multiple sides of this complex issue. While there are some brief works looking at debates on immigration, as well as some general A-to-Z encyclopedias, we offer more in-depth coverage of a much wider range of themes and issues, thus providing the only fully comprehensive point/counterpoint handbook tackling the issues that political science, history, and sociology majors are asked to explore and to write about as students and that they will grapple with later as policy makers and citizens. Features & Benefits: The volume is divided into three sections, each with its own Section Editor: Labor & Economic Debates (Judith Gans), Social & Cultural Debates (Judith Gans), and Political & Legal Debates (Daniel Tichenor). Sections open with a Preface by the Section Editor to introduce the broad theme at hand and provide historical underpinnings. Each section holds 12 chapters addressing varied aspects of the broad theme of the section. Chapters open with an objective, lead-in piece (or "headnote") followed by a point article and a counterpoint article. All pieces (headnote, point article, counterpoint article) are signed. For each chapter, students are referred to further readings, data sources, and other resources as a jumping-off spot for further research and more in-depth exploration. Finally, volume concludes with a comprehensive index, and the electronic version includes search-and-browse features, as well as the ability to link to further readings cited within chapters should they be available to the library in electronic format.

The Everyday Fantasic

The Everyday Fantastic is an anthology born in love. The love is for science fiction, in all its myriad forms: novels, television, movies, music, art, etc. Many writers from a plurality of disciplines, professions and walks of life share this disposition. This attitude cuts across national boundaries and has even outlasted the vagaries of popular culture fads. This collection of essays draws upon these feelings in terms of the different ways science fiction is engaged in different disciplines, viewing the genre beyond mere entertainment. The papers collected here engage the fundamental questions explored in science fiction. Many of the essays were originally presented at an interdisciplinary conference in October 2005 at Brock University, highlighted by Robert J. Sawyer’s engaging keynote address. Additional chapters were in part inspired by these presentations. These essays represent a wide array of voices from the humanities, social sciences and sciences, and address a comparable range of topics and the media that use the science fiction genre.

This volume takes its title from the first-century Christian catechism called the Didache: "Even as this broken bread was scattered over the hills . . . gathered together and became one, so let Your Church be gathered together from the ends of the earth." For Christians today, these words remain relevant in an era of massive human movements (voluntary and coerced), hybrid identities, and wide-ranging cultural interactions. How do modern Christians live as both a "scattered" and "gathered" people? How do they live out the tension between ecclesial universality (catholicity) and particularity (distinctive ways of being church in a given culture and context)? Do Christians today constitute a "diaspora," a people dispersed across borders and cultures that nonetheless maintains a sense of commonality and mission? Scattered and Gathered: Catholics in Diaspora explores these questions through the work of fourteen scholars in different fields and from different corners of the world. Whether through reflections on Zimbabweans in Britain, Levantines in North America, or the remote island people of Chiloe now living in other parts of Chile, they guide readers along the winding road of insights and challenges facing many of today's Christians.

The need for power ministry is as strong today as it was when Jesus and the apostles walked the earth. The need for demonstrations of Gods powerful love, exhibited through His church, will demolish strongholds of unbelief and relativism, as well as tear down cultural barriers that may bring confusion when only the words of the good news are shared, but its power is neglected. When Jesus and the apostles proclaimed the good news of salvation to people, works of power accompanied them. Today, the entire church needs mentored in how to bring Gods word to the world in power. This book is a prophetic call to engage te mission of bringing God's radical love to this hurting world through power ministry.

This book is about your original purpose for existence and the source of meaning behind your life. In these pages you will discover the Creator’s divine motivation, design, and mandate for His creation and your role in that creation. After reading this book, you will be equipped with the knowledge to answer some of the questions addressing the heart cries of humanity in our search for a better world. I am convinced also that you will come to believe, as I do, that there is hope for mankind, but only as we reconnect to the source of creation and our Creator’s original concepts for life on planet earth. It is this concern that this book will attempt to address. The goal of this book is to reintroduce the concepts, principles, and nature of true authentic kingdoms as presented by the Creator and show the superior and advantageous nature of kingdom as compared to any religion, political ideology, government system, or social program. Join me as we explore and understand the precepts and principles of “the Kingdom.”
