5 thoughts on “Why “Social Justice” Is Not God’s Justice

  1. Milei will be a great leader for Argentina.

    In recent years, a set of ideas rooted in postmodernism and neo-Marxist critical theory have merged into a comprehensive worldview. Labeled “social justice” by its advocates, it has radically redefined the popular understanding of justice. It purports to value equality and diversity and to champion the cause of the oppressed.

    Yet far too many Christians have little knowledge of this ideology, and consequently, don’t see the danger. Many evangelical leaders confuse ideological social justice with biblical justice. Of course, justice is a deeply biblical idea, but this new ideology is far from biblical.

    It is imperative that Christ-followers, tasked with blessing their nations, wake up to the danger, and carefully discern the difference between Biblical justice and its destructive counterfeit.

  2. The modifier “social” before justice might as well be translated “not”. “Justice” imparted based on group membership is invariably injustice. In colonial times, when an Indian harmed a white settler, white settlers found the nearest Indian village and destroyed it, and vice versa; that was social justice. The massive harm BLM did to thousands of innocent people in cities throughout the US in response to their misperception that drug-dealer St. George Floyd didn’t die of a drug over-dose…that was social justice.

    1. Healey, thanks for some great comments. The awfulness of the George Floyd/BLM riots cannot be overstated, and yet, very powerful forces in this country thought it was all quite wonderful. As you suggest, the leftist concept of “social justice” is a sham that has nothing to do with true justice.
