True Justice

Mark Rushdoony talked recently about true justice.

The real objective is righteous (righteousness = justice in scripture). Justice is the righteousness of God. It cannot be defined in terms of right or left, or political definitions.

Grace, mercy, judgement and our responsibility, must be defined in terms of God’s word. If we fail to do this,
grace becomes entitlement
  • mercy become welfare
  • judgment become a political decision.
Our responsibility is now directed toward a vaguely defined good society, rather than to a godly society.
