With Liberty And Justice For All —

Justice in society is a matter that is on God’s heart.

Amos 5:15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate:

Isaiah 59:15 The LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.

Proverbs 21:3 To do justice and judgment [is] more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.

Ministry to the Poor

You are most likely aware of the analogy of the live frog being boiled by turning up the temperature slowly, even though the pot is open, so he could easily jump out. Over the decades, with each successive crisis, the politicians accumulate power. This growth of socialism will eventually choke out justice. It is already happening in the US. For example, not many are aware that the US has, by far, the highest incarceration rate of any developed nation. In the US, if you have enough money, you can get justice. In other words, there is a direct correlation with wealth. God hears the cries of the poor, and the society that neglects justice for the poor will lose the blessing of God.

It was not commanded in the Bible, but George Müller decided to do a “Christian experiment” of sorts, in funding his ministries. This was extremely successful and it is valuable for every Christian to know the lessons learned from his experiment. In the old Pennsylvania State House (now known as Independence Hall) in Philadelphia was the deliberation of another experiment of a very similar sort. Quotes from the Bible, and those who wrote about the application of biblical principles, were sourced more than all other sources combined. The founders saw their venture as an experiment, and we can take away some very valuable discoveries and lessons. It is quite clear that ministering to the poor is a biblical virtue, and the learnings from the US founding will greatly help us in that ministry of justice.
