What does God think about...

genocide, starvation, human trafficking, abuse, disease, homelessness, injustice?

What does God think about injustice? He doesn’t like it. Throughout Scripture, God’s heart is bent toward those who are weak, oppressed, and in danger.  He “is righteous and loves justice,” Psalm 11:7 tells us, and is “a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble,” according to Psalm 9:9.


Isaiah 56:1 calls us to, “maintain justice and do what is right.” The implication is that “justice” does not happen naturally, and without attention, “injustice” fills the void. God calls his people to be agents of justice and mercy as we serve those in need. He is looking for people to be advocates for those without a voice and dispensers of mercy on those who have no hope.


As you pursue biblical justice your faith will be stretched in ways you cannot fathom. Your senses will be assaulted and your soul unsettled.  The experience will be harder than you can imagine, but the results will be better than you could ever dream -- your heart will be changed.


Walk with us. Grow with us. Discover God’s heart for broken people, as we move through the journey of justice and mercy together.

His Servant and Yours,

What is Biblical Justice?

    The concept of justice in scripture is closely related to the idea of righteousness; sometimes the word is the same in the Bible.


Righteous-justice is like a highway that God calls us to travel. It’s his intention for our relationship with him and people. Anything that is off that highway, by a little or a lot, is unrighteousness or injustice.


Biblical justice is the standard of living in right relationship with God and others. Followers of Christ are called to not only live on this path, but to draw others into this journey as well.


    Micah 6:8 clearly requires us to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly. This is a mandate from God for his followers. Jesus’ strategy to accomplish this was demonstrated by declaring: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Luke 4:18-19)


    These four expressions of biblical justice (good news, freedom, healing, and blessing)  serve as the framework for The Justice and Mercy Foundation ministries.

The life we live is a gift from God, so that the life we live might be a gift to God.
