The Heart of True Christianity Social Justice

 

Hebrews 5: 14: But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil. (ESV)

 

There are a lot of messages coming from the world and within the church which we must be vigilant in our discernment about. We cannot assume something anyone says is automatically correct or from God. The Bible actually says we are to test everything. The key verse explains that our power of discernment needs to be constantly trained so that we may distinguish good from evil. We are living in the last days beloved and there is little time remaining. Jesus is coming back and just as there is a heaven to be gained, there is a hell to be shunned. False teachings are not new the Apostle Paul writing to the church at Colossae:

I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments. Colossians 2: 4

 

As it was, so it still goes. There are still voices which offer us fine sounding arguments. They make sense to us in every human sense possible. But when measured up against the Word of God, they fall flat on their face. Their motives are not pure; certainly not of God. We need to be careful to what we lend our ear to and more importantly our mouth.

 

Let me say this with complete certainty and no ambiguity people who think that there is no social justice within Christianity do not understand Christianity. It was suggested recently by a popular talking head that people should leave their churches if they even mention social justice and that such mentioning was a "perversion of the Gospel." What utter nonsense.

 

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1: 27

 

The comments made were political in nature, not religious but because of the propensity for religious leaders to lie in bed with politicians, the message gets blurred. The talking head in question is popular amongst the quasi-political religious right crowd that often confuses the things of this world with the things of God. This perspective does not believe in truly helping the poor. They believe in an almost Darwinian model of survival of the fittest on a social scale. It is anathema however to the true teachings of Jesus Christ and the Word of God.
