A Tale of Two Different Cities
Posted On 08/05/2015 04:28:29 by PastorZomok

Some say it is the best of times, others say it is the worst of times.  There is some wisdom here and there but much more foolishness abounds...in America...

There are some that might think that American "sanctuary" cities are for justice and are even Biblically mandated because the ancient people of Israel and Judah set aside 6 cities of refuge where a man, who may or may not have, committed some form of manslaughter, could flee to for protection.  I do not wish to go into the history of these but these were set aside to insure some measure of protection for the accused and to make sure a fair trial would take place.  A simple verse for this is found in Numbers 35:15:

"These six cities shall be for refuge for the people of Israel, and for the stranger and for the sojourner among them, that anyone who kills any person without intent may flee there".

These Bible cities have nothing to do with modern sanctuary cities like San Francisco where muddle-headed city officials with their pretended piety decided to call their city a place of sanctuary for illegal aliens.  Unlike the ancient Israel cities of refuge, these American ones cause injustice.  We all have read about the sad news where an illegal alien and convicted felon murdered a young women in San Francisco.
