“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.”
Micah 6:8

“Justice” is a big issue in our culture today with demands coming at us from every side calling us to get involved! Some say we should make “justice issues” central to the way we proclaim the gospel. Others claim we should avoid speaking about “justice” entirely and “just preach the gospel.” Which is it? Does the Bible have anything to say about justice? What is required of us as Christians? Is this something we should be concerned about? And if so, how?

These kinds of questions are the reason I thought it would be good for us to spend time thinking about some of the big cultural issues swirling around us today. I study these things because I want to understand, biblically, what I should think about them and what you and I should be doing and believing as Christians who want to live faithfully before God in this present culture.
So my goal is not really to focus on the issues themselves! There are lots of resources available to you that will help yo do that! My goal is to help us, as a church, think about how we should live in light of the Gospel, as we wrestle with these things. So, with that in mind, we’re going to do three things with each topic we cover. First, we’re going consider each issue biblically. Second, we will compare and contrast a biblical understanding of these topic with what we see going on in the culture around us. And then, third, we will consider how the Gospel provides the answer to the needs and struggles raised by the culture!


Here are the dates and the topics I hope to cover over the next few weeks:

11/6 Biblical Justice in a Social Justice World
11/13 Understanding Abuse in an Abusive World
11/20 Raising Children in a Transgender World
11/27 Loving Your Neighbor in LGBTQ+ World
12/4 Living as Aliens and Strangers in a Secular World

May God give us understanding and grace to live for His glory!
