How did we get social in-justice warriors in the church anyway?
The raging non-Christian movements of social justice, reproductive justice, sexual justice, gender justice, transgender justice, homosexual justice… have arisen out of families that did not have parents who taught them true justice. They were not walking in the footsteps of Abraham.
“For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him" (Gen. 18:19).
Nobody knows what justice looks like in the church anymore because we don’t have fathers like Abraham who teach justice and righteousness.
The dark underbelly of the collapse of Christian morality in our culture and the perversion of justice is revealed in the collapse of the Christian family and the loss of biblically ordered churches.
In the Bible, fathers are commanded to be judges who teach justice. They must have a pure standard of justice in their hearts in order to teach justice and righteousness to their families.
The reason we have so many justice imposters today in our churches is that fathers have not taught their children. They have not been good judges who taught justice.
We need to be clear about this: the Bible answers all of the current, “social justice,’ questions and we don’t need university professors or anyone else. They are not helpful.
The problem is massive. Because we have not had fathers in churches who were teachers of the Word of God in their homes, now we have social injustice warriors in the church - where they should have never appeared in the first place.
If pastors want to turn the ship, they must first mount their own pulpits to declare justice and righteousness trusting in the Word of God alone (Sola Scriptura), and they must mobilize and train and even rebuke fathers to do their duty (like Abraham) in order that their offspring might be blessed.
