“Social Justice” is a term that sounds nice. However, it is routinely used to advocate for socialism– i.e. redistributing resources or advantages in certain directions. Indeed, “social justice” is really a proxy term for socialism.
When clergy advocate explicitly for social justice, it is highly misguided because they are effectively advocating for socialism. But when politicians try to implement social justice, they are appealing to the widespread sins of envy and covetousness. It is very easy for people to lust after the money and possessions they have not earned, and to resent those who have more than they do. They therefore vote for those who will take away money from others, and give it to them instead.
A great piece at Disntr explains how the Old Testament teaches against socialism. He relies upon some teachings and passages in the book of Proverbs and in other books also. Take a look– it is well worth reviewing.
Pastors really ought to be teaching their congregations what the Bible teaches about “social justice”. In fact, it is in Pastors’ self-interest to do so, because it is the socialists who will most quickly take away their religious liberty.

Those Reverends that preach this apostasy should be worried that their collars will
be the first thing to go should these SJ warriors gain total control.
Precisely the point, Fred. But it is not only the Reverends that preach the apostasy. It is also the Reverends who DO NOT preach the apostasy, but who remain silent on civic matters of importance, who will also lose their freedom of religion.
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless.
Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
To your point, Joe.
Great words, Tommy. I agree… thanks.
