What’s your take on the modern violent Social Justice Movement? Can this sort of violence find justification in scripture, specifically in the words or actions of our Lord Jesus? Modern Radicals do, even many claiming to be christian.
The term Social Justice is, in reality a phrase from the Marxist handbook. Its purpose isn’t justice as we know it, but forced leveling of the economic playing field. Social Justice warriors twist christian texts, specifically the words of Jesus, to support their antiChrist agenda.
Much of modern Social Justice thought finds its origins in the violent Marxist revolutions in South America. This is Where where Libration Theology originated primarily in the homeland of Pope Francis, Argentina. Liberation theology is a synthesis of Christian theology and socio-economic analyses, that emphasizes social concern for the poor and political liberation for oppressed peoples, at virtually any cost.
Merriam Webster formally defines “social justice” as “a state or doctrine of egalitarianism” which is the notion that all social, economic and political “inequalities” must be removed from society. According to Dictionary.com, “social justice” is justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society. THIS iteration of “justice” is NOT commanded in Scripture.
No. Jesus was not a Social Justice warrior. He advocated that his followers have compassion, mercy, and charity.
Jesus’s primary goal and mission was to teach the importance of spiritual truth — primarily related to Salvation.
In the table tipping incident, Jesus became angered that the leaders of the Jews were allowing the temple, a place which was reserved for holy activities, to become defamed, by commerce and greed.
Yes, my sisters and brothers, Jesus did teach that at times it may be appropriate to become angry. However, he also warned us to “sin not.”
There is no justice in burning and looting the property of innocent business owners. This sort of attempt to seek justice is antithetical to Christian morality.
