Without a doubt, if you are talking about the major themes of the Bible you have to talk about justice. It comes up over and over again in both the Old and New Testaments. The word Misphat which is Hebrew for justice shows up more than 200 times in the Old Testament. The word in Greek that is translated justice or righteousness, dikaiosunei s spoken of 86 times in the New Testament.
Justice is a theme that has been often completely ignored in many evangelical churches, but there is no question that as followers of Christ we are called to justice.
This episode is not trying to put anybody on a guilt trip or make you feel more worthless then you already do about yourself! It's about understanding God's heart for justice and our seeing all of life and the Bible through that filter.
