This blog post recently appeared on the World Vision blog — it’s a topic that I get asked about a lot so I thought I’d re-post it.
I often use the phrase “Theology of Justice.”
In fact, it was one of the founding ideas and goals of The Justice Conference—to discuss and promote a theological understanding of justice.
But what does a “theology of justice” mean?
Simply put, it means that our understanding of God should compel justice. And our understanding of justice is one of the ways by which we are meant to understand God more clearly.
