Social Justice Justice is a consistent theme of the gospel. We affirm that God is Just. We affirm that he implores us to Do Justice. Justice and Justification are not to be understood as opposed to the righteousness of God, but inexorably part of the Justice of God. Social Justice may well be understood as a fair suck of the saveloy or in more formal terms the equitable distribution of resources and opportunity. As such I do not regard Social Justice as a modern error. The thing I would regard as a modern error is more accurately described as Social Gospel, where Jesus is affirmed for his political relevance, politics informs theology, and sociology replaces theology.
