One cannot believe in and seek justice without deep belief in Judeo-Christian morality and therefore, belief in the God of the Torah — The God who created the law from the beginning of creation itself.
Sin is simply defined as transgressing the law.
Without God, there is no law; without law, there is no sin; without sin, there is no justice.
Indeed, the very genesis of human morality can be found in Eden.
One simply cannot believe simultaneously in both Darwinian evolution and the very idea of justice. Either you are essentially less than a beast and therefore survival of the fittest and chance alone has brought you to where you are today. In this case, there is only the law of the jungle. Whoever is bigger, faster, smarter, stronger, richer, more cunning, more lethal, more self-enriching rises to the top of the social ladder and all he has is his to keep by any means possible. Lawlessness is expected. There is no sanctity of life and that is why killing even the innocent and defenseless is perfectly fine if it serves any particular purpose.
Or if you believe in justice, then you must believe you are created in the image of a Creator, who loves you, and has provided basic moral laws on how to live peacefully on this earth and how to deal with others rightly.
Socialism (and every derivative of it) is by definition, godless.
Socialists totally misappropriate social justice, for justice is only for the lawful, the God-believing and the God-fearing.
Justice presupposes right and wrong; good and evil.
Justice requires factual truth — not relative truth.
Still none of us are righteous. Not one. Even our so called good works are like filthy rags in the sight of a Holy God who sees deep into the marrow of our very souls and intentions.
The wages (penalty) of sin is death, but the God of the Law and of Creation loves each one of us so much that he sent His only Begotten Son to take the sins of the world upon Himself so that we may live eternally in the very presence of our Creator. We need do nothing but accept this free gift and have faith in the atoning blood of Christ Jesus.
Grace through faith. Alone.
This is called justification and when you believe in and accept Christ as your Savior, you are justified and free from the penalty of sin.
The penalty for the sins of the world has already been paid.
But it is up to each of us individually to accept the gift.
Like a winning lottery ticket, if you ignore it or dismiss it, you will not receive the benefit of it.
The risk of denying Christ in this life far far outweighs any perceived benefit of earthy interests, which will soon pass away as chaff. Once you die, if you have not accepted Christ as your Saviour, it’s too late.
Justification is the first step in your 3 step salvation process.
Step 2: Sanctification by the Holy Spirit is a life-long process that delivers us from the power of sin in our lives.
Step 3: Glorification by God the Father delivers us from the very presence of sin, where we become incorruptible and immortal.
In the precious name of Jesus — Amen.
Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the Lord understand it completely.
Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.
Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.
He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever. For the Lord loves justice; he will not forsake his saints. They are preserved forever, but the children of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever.
For I the Lord love justice; I hate robbery and wrong; I will faithfully give them their recompense, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
