Truth and Justice

A mission of redemption that leaves untroubled our place in unjust systems is far too safe, as is a mission of social activism that leaves untroubled our guilt before a holy God.

Onward p. 93

Trying to stay on the path of discipleship is hard. The call to justice is loud. The call to truth is loud. Voices that lean toward one without the other call and call and call. We must be discerning enough to see the emptiness of justice without truth or truth without merciful justice. Turning a blind eye to justice never leads to flourishing. Turning a blind eye to truth never leads to flourishing.
