How Many M&Ms Will You Eat?

1 12 2015

M&MsPresidential candidate Ben Carson recently returned from a visit to Syrian refugee camps in Jordan and shared what he learned with CNN and other TV interviews. My question is simple. Wouldn’t it far cheaper to give funds to Jordan to take care of the Syrian refugees until they can return to their own homes? Compassion involves a calculation that includes providing for millions of people with the same money that we could only help 10,000 or 200,000 or whatever the number, including welfare costs and the cost to transport them around the world to America.

Washington (CNN) Ben Carson said Sunday that most Syrian refugees would rather be relocated within their own country than resettled in the United States. “The thing that I really learned in listening to the refugees themselves is their intense desire is to return to their country and repatriated,” Carson said. “There’s so many people who think the ideal for everybody is to come to America and be resettled here but that is not the ideal for everybody,” he said. “And we need to be looking at mechanisms that already exist. Why do you want to recreate the wheel when you have something that’s working? Let’s maximize that and then let’s think about if we need recreate other wheels.” Carson implied that the United States should spend more money aiding the refugee camps, rather than resettling small numbers of those refugees.

Compassion is not blind or flippant. Compassion is not a cheap way to cover up your own guilt. Compassion is to help those in desperate need in the best way for their sake. Apply wisdom with your compassion. Do not be sucked in by the guilt trip of liberals with a different agenda. Yes, let’s help, but follow Jesus and His Holy Spirit about how to minister the real compassion.

‘I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ Matthew 25:36

Ben Carson is one who “came” to them.
