Fasting as a Spiritual Practice…What does fasting mean, especially to me as a Christian, and why do I do it?
(Here is an excellent podcast with Thaddeus Williams and one of contributors, Monique Duson, on Babylon Bee)
There is talk of social justice everywhere. There is a certain interpretation of what the term “social justice” means. The government, educational institutions, corporate leaders, entertainment industry, almost all mainstream media, and many Christian denominations and churches all have a similar narrative on social justice. But is this a biblical narrative? Or is it something else?
We will spend Monday Nights@ 6 PM PT exploring what does the Bible say about justice and what is God calling me to do about it?
We will be using the book Confronting Injustice without Compromising Truth: 12 Questions Christians Should Ask About Social Justice by Thaddeus J. Williams.
From Confronting Injustice without Compromising Truth…
- God does not suggest, He commands that we do justice.
- Doing justice brings a brightness and Lessing to out lives.
- Defending the cause of the poor and the needy is what it means to know God.
- Apathy toward the oppressed can hinder our prayers and sever our connection with God.
“Seek justice” is a clarion call of Scripture, and those who plug their ears to that call are simply not living by the Book. But the Bible’s call to seek justice is not a call to superficial, knee-jerk activism. We aren’t commanded to merely execute justice but to “truly execute justice.”8 That presupposes there are untrue ways to execute justice, ways of trying to make the world a better place that aren’t in sync with reality and end up unleashing more havoc in the universe. The God who commands us to seek justice is the same God who commands us to “test everything” and “hold fast to what is good.” – Thaddeus Wiliams
