There is increasing conversation about just who is at the gates of the United States. Some say “The Enemy is at the gate!” People who are immigrating to the United States will change our culture and drag us into an economic abyss. We must guard ourselves against this invasion.
Others say, “There is Help at the gate.” The United States has benefitted from the mix of cultures and ideas that comprise its citizenry. The people who want to enter this country should be valued and welcomed and integrated as valuable resources.
Do Christians process this crucial question any differently than others? We hear political, financial and sociological arguments for and against opening the gate. How does Scripture help us sort through the questions and generate helpful answers?
Colorado Christian University’s School of Theology invites you to explore this essential – and complex question of “Who IS at the gate?”
Keynote Speaker: Dr. M. Daniel Carroll R., Distinguished Professor of Old Testament
Professor M. Daniel Carroll R., Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Old Testament at Denver Seminary will address how to think “Christianly” about immigration, and how the Church and the Bible come to bear on this important current issue. Professor Carroll is of Guatemalan-American heritage and has addressed the topic of immigration in colleges, seminaries and churches across the country.
The newly released second edition of Dr. Carroll’s book: Christians at the Border: Immigration, the Church and the Bible will be available for purchase at the conference. There will be a presentation, a time for interaction on the presentation and a Question and Answer session with Dr. Carroll and a panel of pastors.
This free event will be held in Patrick Henry Hall 108, located on CCU's main campus in Lakewood, Colorado. All are welcome to attend, but a reservation is required.
CCU will provide lunch as a “Thank You” for your contribution to God’s Kingdom as a faithful Servant of His Church.
