    1. First we'd have to very meticulously define "open border policy", as this could be defined and designed in many different ways.
    (We could easily come up with 20 different definitions of "open border policy"... and if we do, then it would be virtually impossible to tell if it's addressed in the bible, or what the biblical view would be... as different definitions could actually contradict each other.)

    2. After we've picked ONE DEFINITION, one VERY PRECISE DEFINITION, we could then discuss the OP's question.

    3. Most likely, it isn't something that's really addressed in the Bible at all... but that may depend on what kind of definition we choose.

    Note on defining terms:



    If we fail to define terms, and choose a very precise definition for "open border policy"...

    then we're just talking about a bunch of nothing.


    We'd be having an utterly meaningless conversation.

    I'm in favor of open border policies on that day the Rio Grande runs dry.

    What if the so called open border policy means immigrants will not undergo to the legal process of naturalization but instead hide in the US for 20 or more years and ask for immediate amnesty and citizenship as long as some of them did not do any crimes, work in a legal way and pay taxes if that's true to some for the past 20 years and more?

    Is this Biblical?

    Pretty sure Heaven has borders........and, while it is certainly OPEN to all who desire to reside there, ya cain't just walk on in, ya gotta follow certain requirements first.........soooooooooo, I would not think it would be a Biblical principle.....what comes to mind when saying "open borders," would equate to "all paths lead to Heaven" in my opinion, and that is just wrong.

    (See John 3:16)

    Hebrews 13:5 .) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
    6 .) So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

    This thread reminds me of something I saw a couple days ago. It was a picture about building the border wall and it said, "Remember, even Heaven has walls and a gate to keep out those who don't belong there."

    Did Israel enter the promise land through open borders?

    use it to examine yourself not others.

    No. It's a globalist ideal. God's plan is for nations.

    Are there any scriptures that you feel support open boarder policy?
