BIBLICAL JUSTICE

Biblical

JUSTICE

Christ Greenfield is a community that cares deeply about justice. 
The call to pursue justice comes directly from Christ's teachings and example. Unfortunately, there is confusion regarding justice in society. At its core, the concept of justice is taking something that's gone wrong and making it right. We lean heavily on God's biblical wisdom to bring perspective and clarity on how to right these wrongs in our world. For the benefit of the CG community and friends, we have compiled these statements on Biblical Justice with supporting scriptural references.
1. We believe that human beings are not our enemy, Satan is. (Ephesians 6)

2. We will strive to show love and compassion to those who are suffering. (Galatians 6:2, 1 John 3:17, 1 Peter 3:8, Luke 10:30-37)

3. 
We will encourage mutually beneficial relationships with those “different” than us. (Leviticus 19:34, Hebrews 13:2, John 4:7-30)

4
. We must be champions for reconciliation (Matthew 5:9), which includes repentance (James 5:16), and also forgiveness towards those who will never ask for forgiveness. (Mark 11:25, Luke 23:34)
5. We believe every human being is created in the image of God and therefore is deserving of respect and value (Genesis 1:26-27).

6.
We believe our identity should be in Christ before all things, including race, gender, sexuality, nationality, addiction etc. (Galatians 3:27-29, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Galatians 2:20, 1 Corinthians 12:27)

7.
We must equip people to succeed in life and in faith.  (Ephesians 4:11-17, Proverbs 22:6, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)

8.
We must pursue biblical justice, but not allow our concept of justice to be misguided by culture. (Romans 12:2)
