Social Righteousness

Social righteousness...
It would be a mistake to suppose that the biblical word
'righteousness' means only a right relationship with God on
the one hand and a moral righteousness of character and
conduct on the other. For biblical righteousness is more
than a private and personal affair; it includes social
righteousness as well. And social righteousness, as we
learn from the law and the prophets, is concerned with
seeking man's liberation from oppression, together with the
promotion of civil rights, justice in the law courts,
integrity in business dealings and honor in home and
family affairs. Thus Christians are committed to hunger
for righteousness in the whole human community as something
pleasing to a righteous God.

grace and peace to you,

For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
