Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.18

In this series we’ve looked at “social justice”—what it is, why it’s wrong, and why it matters.

In view of what I’ve said, we are in a better place to understand Scripture on concepts such as oppression, judgment/justice, and government.

20 Christian Bloggers on “Why Writing Matters”

It takes a lot to create a blog or website, but Christian leaders know it’s worth it.

I’m really excited about today’s post: this week 20 of my favorite Christian bloggers emailed me their reasons for writing! Some have a large following; others are just getting started. Combined, they reach over 200,000 email subscribers and the same number of twitter followers. These men and women inspire me with their high-quality content and their heart for spreading Christ’s message.

I know you’ll benefit from what they have to say. As you read through their words, envision what you too could do with an online platform. 

Do You Make This Mistake When Arguing?

I call this mistake “Not keeping your eye on the goal.”

It means not being 100% clear on what your goal is.

So, what is your goal?

If your goal is to say what you think — and then feel good about having said it — that’s not going to benefit anyone. Not you, and not anyone else.

That’s like the people who just say “You’re an idiot.” No one is benefited by that.

Certainty, Judgment, and Planned Parenthood

Let the little children come to me,” said Jesus (Matthew 19:14). But see what happens to a nation when it ignores the heart of God.

Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
And shed innocent blood,
Even the blood of their sons and of their daughters,
Whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan:
And the land was polluted with blood.
Thus were they defiled with their own works,
And went a whoring with their own inventions.
Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people,
Insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance (Psalm 106:37-40).
