Why justice? “I refuse to accept the idea that the ‘isness’ of man’s present nature makes him morally incapable of reaching up for the eternal ‘oughtness’ that forever confronts him.” (Martin Luther King Jr., 1964 Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech)
Justice is… …giving people what they deserve.
What is justice? At the most general level it signals “doing, being, declaring, or bringing about what is right,” with the specific connotation being dictated by context.
What is justice? It is restorative before it’s retributive. It’s not just something applied to big social and cultural problems. It is not just some big theory. It must be applied in the routine of our lives. It is multifaceted.
How is it is multifaceted? Working toward the deliverance of the poor and powerless from the injustice that they regularly experience Lifting the foot of domineering power off the neck of the dominated and oppressed
How is it is multifaceted? Stopping the violence and establishing peace Restoring the outcasts, the excluded, the exiles, and the refugees to community
What are the common images of justice? The prophetic symbol of justice is a mighty, surging river. Biblical justice is thus not a static state but, says Abraham J. Herschel, “Justice is more than an idea or a norm: justice is charged with the omnipotence of God. What ought to be, shall be!”
