Social Justice Driven Church
I recently saw a FB ad that declares being a social-justice driven church and I wonder what happened to being a Christ centered, scripture preaching, fire and brimstone, God fearing church? I don’t read in the bible where Jesus came to promote social justice but to bring the good news. Jesus was the good news that his Father, God loves you. Were the Jews expecting a great military leader who would bring down the Roman occupiers through social justice?
In fact God was the center of Jesus’ ministry on earth. Everything was about hearing his Father’s voice. How does one hear unless he listens? I’m sure the first 30 years Jesus grew up listening to his Father’s voice and when he began his ministry everything he did was putting those words into action.
What did Jesus get from telling the good news?
Scorn of a sinful fallen world, public humiliation and crucifixion on the cross.
What did the world get from Jesus’ death on the cross?
The way to God by Jesus’ blood shed on the cross.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
So back to a church centered on social justice, false profits or anything other than Christ centered there can be no salvation. It is nothing more than a feel-good religious experience without the fruits of the Spirit espousing yet another way that leads to eternal death and separation from God. Don’t take my word for it, look it up for yourself. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
