Real source of justice

dellangelos-social-justice-460x345

We all want the good will of those in leadership, but when it comes to justice, only the Lord can get us that for even those who are good, hate the wicked, and the wicked hate those who are good.

The Beatitudes (Sermon on the Mount) addresses social, moral and personal issues; it is not addressing governmental, corporate, or constitutional matters. An examination of the text will show that Jesus is talking about “personal vengeance, revenge, or vindictiveness,” which is not to be confused with “justice,” a subject referred to throughout Scripture numerous times. It is not “vengeance or justice” which is proscribed, but “personal vengeance.” Not a Commandment, but a lifestyle guideline for happiness, and definitely not meant as an excuse to not defend our life, country, or culture from moral evils of our day. We are to be kind, as much as possible ( “Do everything possible on your part to live in peace with everybody.” – Romans 12:18), and pray for people we may disagree with, not because we want these people to prosper, but because actions of other people affect our lives.

We must let God sort our enemies out. God will sort ’em out! God looks at the hearts of all men and women, and knows every minute detail.
