SUMMARY: Justice seems to be a universal term. A term that everyone knows and that is generally agreed upon. But, since most Christians have not been discipled in Biblical justice we bring in non-Biblical definitions and assumptions when discussing justice. To learn about Biblical justice pastor Thabiti Anyabwile suggests that we must first have a heart check. This is part of a superb eight-part series.

KEY QUOTE: “If we think for a moment, chances are we’ve never had any systematic teaching on biblical justice at any point in our Christian lives. We’ve heard sermons here or there. Perhaps we’ve read a book and that got us closer. So it’s possible we’ve taken for granted that our political positions (and that of our church leaders) is approximately “just.” Or we’ve bumped into skirmishes on social media that exposed us to a “side” or two. But slow systematic instruction from the whole Bible on the theme of justice has not been the experience of most Bible-believing Christians.”
