I also wonder at the notion of being for strong borders as being non Christian. Although people clearly traveled hither to yon in biblical times there is definite mention of various kingdoms or countries, which infer borders.

The scriptures, both in Old and New Testaments more than hint at sustainability.

For example, endless welfare is not a Christian notion.

Can I cleanly extrapolate that into a closed border policy? Probably not . I will not that the Apostle Paul did not expect to have an open border in Israel. He took the work out to places far from Israel.

I don't see much example of letting people in and finding Christianity through osmosis, but it became a belief where people took the message to people where they were. Missionaries.

Going back to theocracies, and whether or not I want to live in a theocracy?

again, no.
