Biblical Basics on Justice
Biblical Basics on Justice is a concise document outlining the biblical foundation of Christian social justice principles in both the Old and the New Testament. The content of this Web page is also available in a convenient two pages printable PDF document.
"The Bible does not offer us a ten-point program or a five-year plan of action on how to combat injustice in our world. Rather, the scriptures give us a vision of a new creation. They will hunger no more, and thirst no more … and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes (Revelations 7:16a-17b)."
