What about then the example of Jesus and his ministry in the apostles or the early church regarding social justice. It will was that a priority or even a secondary thing that they they pursued what what's their example.
Example we find in Matthew chapter 11 versus 2 to 4. This is Jesus's response to John the Baptist while John the Baptist was imprisoned.
As we know from the fake John the Baptist has been unjustly imprisoned first to of Matthew V now when John while imprisoned heard of the works of Christ. He fit word by his disciples that is John the Baptist that were to Jesus by a couple of John the Baptist disciples. Jesus, of course, is well aware not only that John is in prison. But why years in prison.
In verse three of Matthew 11 just disciples asked of Jesus this question. Are you the expected one or shall we look for someone else. From the standpoint of social justice.
Jesus, knowing that John was imprisoned unjustly sugar-free jump imprisoned. That would've been the just thing for Jesus to do according to the social justice argument. John the Baptist has been unjustly imprisoned.
Jesus is therefore obligated to write that injustice and the only way to do that is to free John for printing right but but see Jesus doesn't do that address it.
Jesus knows that John is imprisoned unjustly, but instead of freeing God. Jesus leaves John there knowing that Joe will soon be executed.
They'll unjustly also likes under unjustly, unjustly, the emphasis throughout this dialogue here must be that John is imprisoned unjustly.
He's going to be executed on just what is the narrative of the entire social distance argument is injustice unjust.
This is either unjust or less injustice which uses response to justifiable is a lesson to us all and what is of most importance to God, what should be of most importance to the church. Verse four and Matthew 11 wreaks go and replaces Jesus's response to God. Go and report to John what you hear and see verse five the blind receive sight and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up in the poor have the gospel preached to them the poor have the gospel preached to them that this is significant, they would because the Jesus of the social justice movement would've fit this, the poor have jobs or the poor have homes in which to live or that the poor have food on the table but notice that in all that Jesus said in response to John the Baptist in his message to be taken back to John the Baptist. The poor were mentioned last. And Jesus singled them out. Not for having met all their felt needs before what was the most important thing in this world, even to the poor, which is having the gospel preached to them so that their souls might be saved for all eternity.
We hope this will berate you hear the full program is ministering to visit the Christian worldview.I'm David
