Moving from Charity to Justice

Filed under: Christianity, social justice — paulthinkingoutloud @ 10:34 am

I didn’t want to rain on anyone’s parade in the run-up to the 25th — even passing on the annual Shoebox Rant — but now that you’ve delivered the food hampers, and (hopefully) done your annual year-end giving to overseas mission projects, it’s time to ask the larger questions. After all, Christmas, 2017 is only 364 days away. This first appeared here in December, 2009 without a link or further annotation and may have originated here. Don’t rush through this; take the time to consider each point and how it might find application in your community in 2017.

Charity - Justice

  1. In theory it sounds solid. Get to the root causes in order to find permanent solutions. There is only one permanent solution: believing in the life(teachings included), death, and resurrection of the Lord God Jesus. Sounds hyper-spiritual but it is the truth. Dig deeper. Why are the individuals in the corporations okay with running a business how they do? People, socialist/communist, want to TAKE from the hoarders and give to everyone else. Bit this is not changing what counts: the heart, soul, mind and strength of the person they are economically raping. Submission starts with us first. Submission to the will of the Master who knows what we have need of before we ask.
