This meme is going around Facebook and other social media sites. What this shows is the wickedness of man, false gospel teachings, and just how far the Church has fallen.
The creators and propagators of this meme are attempting to compare Joseph and Mary’s journey to Bethlehem to that of the so-called Syrian “refugees”. Nothing could be further from the Truth.
First of all Joseph and Mary weren’t fleeing their homeland. As husband and wife, united as one flesh, they were returning to Joseph’s home town since he was a descendant of King David. Additionally everyone in the Roman Empire was doing the same. As Caesar had ordered a census and everyone went to their home town to be counted.
Joseph and Mary, along with others too, were not turned away by heartless people. When they reached Bethlehem, the town’s population had swelled greatly. They attempted to get a room at an inn but it was full.
Thus they bedded down in a stable where Jesus was born and placed in a manger. This was actually an act of kindness allowing the couple to stay in the stable instead of being on the streets.
It has already been proven and documented that those coming from Syria are mostly men of military age. Not families, not women and children. And many are Islamic Jihadists, criminals, and terrorists. One only needs to see the damage they have done already in Europe.
They have violated international law by not seeking asylum in the first bordering nation they entered. Instead they continue on to Europe and America. The goal to spread Jihad in the West to destroy Western Civilization, their stated enemy for more than 1000 years.
