Description

Doing Theology in a World on the Move - Migration, Borders and Citizenship

In the new self, there is no Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free, but Christ is all and in all.”

It raises all sorts of issues when large numbers from a specific people group move outside their customary borders (irrespective of whether they are forced to move or do so voluntarily). In the past we have seen movements from wealthy and powerful parts of the world to less powerful areas (colonialism). Nowadays we also see the reverse (refugee crisis, economic migration). In response we have seen the rise of schools of thought such as post-colonialism, unhealthy nationalism, and also a reversal of internationalism.

There are no easy answers to complex questions, but as evangelicals, how do we think about these issues? What does Christ urge us to do? How does God’s Word help us to be shining lights? What are the parallels we see in Scripture? What are their limitations? Do we need to separate our ‘national identity’ from our ‘Christian identity’? How should we plead the cause of the orphan and the widow? Should we perhaps just concentrate on the Gospel opportunities which the migration phenomenon offers us?
