I’ve been watching and reading about the unfruitful exchange within the Church regarding social justice. Wanted to share my snapshot of what I believe is abundantly clear and, unfortunately, on display to the world.
A fellow brother, whom I once pastored, asked if I could “provide a biblical example(s) where the apostles/disciples stood up and spoke out against social injustices.” Below is my response. I wrote this with, any believer who may also want to know this, in my mind. May we hear God’s heart and all be edified.
As I was leaving work this morning, a friend of mine told me about the Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage. I have to say, I’m not surprised by the Supreme Court's ruling and neither should you if you are a born-again believer. We are living in a modern time that mirrors the biblical time of Judges.
In the wake of the Bruce Jenner controversy, I saw many professing "Christians" comment to other "Christians" who disagree—with Bruce Jenner, how the media and society has portrayed it, and what the Bible has to say about it. When these things are written by unbelievers, that's to be expected. There is simply no way a biblically-grounded born-again disciple of Jesus can utter statements like these from their heart. But the problem goes much deeper.
