Justice is repeatedly called for in the Bible.
So what’s the problem?
Leviticus 19:15 instructs us not to “show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge our neighbor fairly.”
There’s to be no favoritism in the courts between rich or poor, male or female, or based on race.
Everyone is to obey the same standard of righteousness and suffer the same consequences for violating it.
And further, biblically, mercy and kindness are to be extended to those weak and vulnerable in our society.
But this does NOT mean unjustly seizing and redistributing wealth and property that is the rightful possession of others.
Unfortunately, for many in the social justice movement, it does mean exactly that—the forceful redistribution of wealth.
It’s not only unbiblical and unjust; it has failed everywhere it’s been tried!
