Word of the Week: Justice

October 8, 2019

What makes something just or unjust? What is justice? Justice is doing what is right, and this has to be founded on an objective standard that applies universally to all people. The word justice was used by the prophets to describe the coming Savior who would bring "righteousness" or "justice" to the world. But compare that to our world today or the term "social justice" as used in our world. As used by our world this idea is based on subjective, always changing principles. How confusing! This is not true justice! But Jesus is, and there is nothing that can be substituted for that truth and objective standard which comes from God alone.
