Show Notes

The Bible has a lot to say on the subject of injustice. We know that God is in favor of justice; we know that He is against injustice, even in the most basic terms. The writer of Proverbs mentions this: “The LORD detests differing weights, / and dishonest scales do not please him” (Proverbs 20:23). Justice is foundational to God’s throne (Psalm 89:14), and God does not approve of partiality, whether we are talking about a weighted scale or an unjust legal system (Leviticus 19:15). There are many other verses, in both Old and New Testaments, that give us an idea of God’s distaste for injustice (2 Chronicles 19:7; Job 6:29; 11:14; Proverbs 16:8; Ezekiel 18:24; Romans 9:14).

 

We explore the continuing injustices in the experience of African Americans and what we ought to do about them. Additional scriptures referenced include Isaiah 59:14-17; Isaiah 1:17; Psalm 82:3; Isaiah 58; James 3:2; 1 John 1:5-9; Romans 4:5; Micah 6:8; James 1:27; Matthew 17:21; Luke 18:9-14; Matthew 23:23; and John 5:22.
