MIGHT CHRISTIANS LEAVE the UNITED STATES? IF SO, WORK to DO for JESUS CHRIST!

I, along with about 500,000,000 other people, get the emails for the Sovereign Man outfit of Simon Black and I do not intend to endorse it by quoting it.  I read this email and was thinking about something else altogether:  God in Jesus’s command to take the good news of how Jesus died for the sins of the world to all the nations of the world!  (See Matthew 28:18-20); see what I mean (Black is speaking of Chile):

Having traveled to well over 100 countries, I’m still hard-pressed to come up with another place which offers the same combination of lifestyle, cost of living, opportunity, ease of doing business, and freedom.

As more people hit their breaking points and start looking for better opportunities abroad, Chile will become like Paris was for entire generations of expats decades ago.

But like anything else, it pays to get in early. And residency is a great example.

Right now, Chile is one of the easiest places in the world to obtain residency. (I’d have to say that Panama is probably THE easiest at the moment).

And how do you become a resident of Chile?

First, you can demonstrate that you are a person of economic means. And while there is no officially stated minimum, people who can demonstrate monthly income of roughly $1,500 per month typically get accepted.

This can be public pension income (like social security), private pension (from your own company), or even rental income from property you own.

Second, you can sign a work contract with a Chilean company… even if it’s a company that you help start.

(Now if Black is looking for a blogger and has the right price, I’d consider Chile – my denomination has only one missionary family in all of Chile.)  And I like Chile.  Their police are very professional – NEVER EVER try to bribe a Chilean officer.  Very serious NO NO!  They have a great social security system – they privatized it (one little-known positive thing about Pinochet) and we in USA never will.

My thought here is not that I would ever be eager to leave the US permanently; that is like secession of sorts.  We are not a tyranny.  But it may get tough for followers of Jesus Christ in the USA at some point.  Imagine with me:  If only one Church of the Nazarene family decided to move to Chile, we’d potentially have double the coverage for missions work.  And if you moved there, got residency and a passport, you could travel to other nations, too.  Even back to the US.

It’s an extreme step; one I am not ready to even seriously suggest!  But we as followers of Jesus Christ must be ready.  To paraphrase Whittaker Chambers about communism, we Christians are always under sentence of death.  Ask Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.  For those readers who are ready to consider Jesus as Lord and Savior, the one who took the legal debt for our sins, go here!

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
