We live in a fallen world. And across the millennia, nowhere has the curse of sin been more visible than in human relationships. That people have always mistreated each other, in countless ways, needs no explanation.
In the midst of that constant tumult, the church ought to stand out (Matthew 5:14–16). God has given us everything we need to deal with even the most difficult conflicts. Yet today when it comes to dealing with the wrongs of society, many believers are echoing worldly wisdom rather than bringing God’s Word to bear on those matters. Christians are embracing a notion of “social justice” that has nothing to do with biblical justice—true justice. Worse still, they drag the secular influence of identity politics and victim culture into the midst of God’s people, corrupting the church and hindering its progress.
In this booklet, John MacArthur digs into the modern fascination with “social justice” and how the church should respond to this issue. Important, biblical truth for you, your family, and your local fellowship—On “Social Justice” and the Gospel.
