Justice = Righteousness

I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’  (Acts 20:35)

Justice is both a reality and a dream. It is a source of hope and of frustration. Justice, like a mountain, affords many perspectives depending upon which side one is viewing. For persons who are well-established in life, justice is a wall of protection. For persons struggling with obstacles or battling mistreatment, justice is a door through a wall. The appropriate interaction between biblical justice and civil justice is difficult to define. There is also the term “social justice” which is controversial due to misunderstanding its biblical application. In the Bible, the words justice and righteousness have the same essential meaning.
    

 

The goals of this book are to shine a bright light of insight and educate readers by increasing understanding of both scriptural and unbiased lessons from history. It is also the aim of this book to bring matters related to racial minorities out of the historical shadows. In a world of false narratives and low information, it is essential that we have a firm grasp of facts, both historical and contemporary. This book will present many insights and opinions, which I will offer as one man's perspective. I trust you will find these insights relevant, reliable, valid, and useful to your life and our times.
