Comment from Pastor Todd Bumgarner:

@Jeff – we did not get to this question specifically on that Sunday morning as we were discussing a specific issue falling under the umbrella of social justice.

I’d like to address your specific question here. Realizing that I don’t have a brief, 1-2 sentence answer, this could be better to discuss in person so if you’d like, please grab me on a Sunday and I can flesh this out a little more and answer any further questions you have or nuances you might be looking for.

When we seek to understand “social justice” from a biblical worldview, first we should acknowledge that the word ‘justice’ implies a foundational truth involving treating all people equitably. In other words, it involves seeking the same punishment, reward or rights for people despite things like class, race, ethnicity, privilege etc.

Secondly, God’s Word is the foundation for our ideals of justice.

Third, the Bible repeatedly identifies four people groups as those whom we should seek to show justice too: widows, orphans, poor, and the alien (which we might call immigrants). Helpfully, we can think categorically here of the disadvantaged, underprivileged, and even socially marginal—those whom, in a broken and fallen world, tend to experience life unjustly.  Today, we might include in this realm single moms, the fatherless, refugees, those on the receiving end of racism, as well as others.

Lastly, when we think biblically about social justice we are to see that the primary impetus of social justice lies with the individual. This is seen in the great commandment of loving our neighbor as ourself. Christians, then, as individuals, should be leading the way in this. This does not negate the good that organizations (or even governments) and such do; however, we should never be content with relying upon organizations and governments when the primary and most foundational responsibility lies with us as individuals.

Hope that’s helpful in some way, Jeff. Feel free to shoot back any clarifications needed or grab me on a Sunday to talk more.
