The next time Pope Francis wonders why America wants to build walls and whether we are acting with the blessing and/or approval of God, a quick look in the Bible is clarifying. I bet he has a Bible around the Vatican somewhere, too.
For he said to Judah, “Let us build these cities and surround them with walls and towers, gates and bars. The land is still ours because we have sought the LORD our God; we have sought Him, and He has given us rest on every side.” So they built and prospered.
2 Chronicles 14:7
