While justice is something we all desire, it’s not something we all agree on. For evidence of that, look no further than today’s conversations about “social justice.” Whether it’s inside or outside the church, the way we define and describe a just society (as well as our part in it) will make all the difference in the world when it comes to seeing eye-to-eye. But if all followers of Jesus have the bible, shouldn’t we all be on the same page?
On this week’s episode, we interact a bit with the contemporary conflicts surrounding social justice, but ultimately try to re-center the conversation back on the kind of justice we see God declare and demonstrate himself.
