Pastor, author, and founder of The Justice Conference, Ken Wytsma writes today about the phrase "theology of justice," which means that "our understanding of God should compel justice."
Does this mandate from God also include social justice?
I often use the phrase “Theology of Justice.”
In fact, it was one of the founding ideas and goals of The Justice Conference—to discuss and promote a theological understanding of justice.
But what does a “theology of justice” mean?
Simply put, it means that our understanding of God should compel justice. And our understanding of justice is one of the ways by which we are meant to understand God more clearly.
