Does Jesus command that the government take from the haves and give to the have nots? Is everything in the Bible a command for governments?

    “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

    And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”

    God tells us to give to others voluntarily.

    the government points a gun at you and says pay your taxes or we'll send you to prison and then they give a little bit of that money to the poor.. and lazy.

    God says if you do not work you do not eat.

    The Bible also says a worker is worthy of his wages. People should worker and not want the government to redistribute wealth.

    The law God gave to Moses as recorded in Leviticus commanded that a portion of a rich man's property be set aside so the poor could enter and pick up the gleanings for their families.  In the Jubilee year, all family lands that had been lost through economic activity were to be removed from the hands of those who acquired it and returned to the  families who had lost it, thus returning economic power to the poor of Israel. Taxes were to be paid to the priesthood, part of whose job was to teach the people of Israel.  God also commanded tithes for the poor, widows, fatherless, and strangers in the land.  Once Israel gained a human king, God sent prophets to warn of his judgement because they were ignoring the needs of the poor.
    Jesus and the first Christians had no power of governing, so could not inaugurate any such social changes, so they are not spoken of.  But among themselves they lived up to the same principles of generosity, helping, and service in their own localities noted above.  During a plague in the Roman Empire, for example, they assisted their sick neighbors even at the expense of their own lives.  And when Christians did become powerful in the land, they created systems to help people in society.

    She didn’t even know the scripture just the part about giving which is all the church-going SJWs use to justify their beliefs. I have yet to meet an SJW within the church who actually knows the Bible.

    When someone says, "social justice," mentally replace it with, "group justice." That idea is nonsensical because justice is based on individual actions, not your group membership. That idea has no Biblical support and has nothing to do with the Biblical conception of justice.

    As a fellow Christian I must disagree with them. There are many scriptures that condemn the rich. Sell all your belongings. What you did to the least of these you've done to me. It's easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. The Bible I would say is the most Anti Rich historical book ever. I have a Christian YouTube channel called Sanctified C. Y'all should check me out. Honestly I have a huge problem with how fast a lot of evangelists and some Christians will justify the wealthy. I believe God wants us to have things but not an overabundance.

    the Bible commands Social Justice in the sense that we need to promote Biblical Values, not in the sense of promoting Marxism masquerading as "Social Justice".

    A church is as moral as the people walking IN the doors, not the people walking Out. Going to church to build up your morality, is like going to elementary school to learn particle physics. If it does happen, it's entirely by accident, and not written in any book that you will find there.

    Turek, separation of church and state is a good thing. It's worse in countries where they don't separate the two. We should keep those two things separate. So remember that. God bless.

    Social Justice speaks what sound like benevolent words, but it is ultimately fueled by nothing but hate and envy. The most telling aspect is that the main focus is to make other people give up their resources, instead of doing it themselves.
    There's a more appropriate Matthew verse.
    Matthew 23:3 "So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach."

    “Justice is driven back, / and righteousness stands at a distance; / truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter. / Truth is nowhere to be found, / and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey. / The LORD looked and was displeased / that there was no justice” (Isaiah 59:14–15). God’s message for them was simple: “Learn to do right; seek justice. / Defend the oppressed. / Take up the cause of the fatherless; / plead the case of the widow” (Isaiah 1:17). Later, God tells them to “loose the chains of injustice” (Isaiah 58:6; cf. Psalm 82:3), indicating that injustice is a form of bondage and oppression.

    “The LORD detests differing weights, / and dishonest scales do not please him” (Proverbs 20:23). Justice is foundational to God’s throne (Psalm 89:14), and God does not approve of partiality, whether we are talking about a weighted scale or an unjust legal system (Leviticus 19:15). There are many other verses, in both Old and New Testaments, that give us an idea of God’s distaste for injustice (2 Chronicles 19:7; Job 6:2911:14; Proverbs 16:8; Ezekiel 18:24; Romans 9:14).

    “In the midst of blatant injustices inflicted upon the Negro, I have watched white churches stand on the sideline and merely mouth pious irrelevancies and sanctimonious trivialities. In the midst of a mighty struggle to rid our nation of racial and economic injustice, I have heard so many ministers say, "those are social issues with which the gospel has no real concern.", and I have watched so many churches commit themselves to a completely other-worldly religion which made a strange distinction between body and soul, the sacred and the secular.

    So here we are moving toward the exit of the twentieth century with a religious community largely adjusted to the status quo, standing as a tail-light behind other community agencies rather than a headlight leading men to higher levels of justice." MLK Jr

    Now that is a video ❤ Please do these type of videos more brother, not the arguments with atheists. atheists do not care about religion at all, and that is why they pressure others who come on their channel to leave the faith. I don't want that happening anymore

    Yes it does teach social justice, but qualifies within social justice sometimes, Jesus wouldn't approve of.

    But the same can be said about same-sex marriage. Nowhere does it say the government should intervene on defining what marriage is.
    I think his response lacks nuance.

    "Fiery but mostly peaceful protests"… It is amazing how two people can look at an event, or series or events, and see two completely different things, isn't it?

    Amen to that!

    Justice, as God ordained it, is sufficient in itself , unambiguous in its meaning and does not require a prefix to define it. No such thing as “social justice” , Justice is Justice! 🙏🏽

    Social Justice has nothing to do with socialism. It’s about using the government to assist the poor/needy/helpless. I think many White Christians disagree with this because minorities benefit from social justice policy more White people. A purely Christian government would have social programs for the needy and poor.

    Her gut reaction is no, and Frank supports the government preaching gospel. Constitution says government shall create no law prohibiting individual choice of religion. So yeah Frank is right, it could be taught

    Dr. Frank Turek would do well to study the Christian Democratic parties of Western Europe. They have been struggling with this balance since their inception, and with the implementation of what is now termed "social justice" at least since the end of WWII. There is no contradiction between using the secular government apparatus to implement social programs that comply with your faith and not abusing the secular government apparatus by requiring that it spread your faith.

    With every protest there will always be some knuckleheads acting up on their own personal agendas.

    You have people in those protests that hate the government they have nothing to do with peaceful protesting.

    I for one agree with black lives matter I just don't agree with the movement

    The Churches that call for Social Justice also believe in things like Gay Marriage, Transgenderism, Abortion, sex before marriage, and the like. Their morals have eroded and are open to many evils condemned in the Bible. They are not real churches. They do not truly believe. They are concerned more with appealing to man and his sensibilities, man and his wants, man and his desires, and not what God calls for us to do. More concerned with filling a pew than leading a man to Christ.

    They are dens of Satan. They would preach that a good man could get into heaven and not believe that Christ was the messiah, died for our sins, and rose from the dead. They believe there is good and morality in all of us, even men who reject Christ and commit terrible acts. They would praise them and put their image in the sanctuary over Christ as prophets and martyrs. These churches refuse to call out sin, they embrace the sinner, and condemn the believer in Christ as wicked.

    They believe if "The Church" does not change for this world as the world has changed, then "The Church" will disappear. However, Christ said that "His Church" will not disappear from this earth until the day He returns and takes "His Church" home. These dens of Satan do not believe that. They fear losing men, losing revenue, and being looked down upon by this wicked world for following Christ. They fear losing the world as they see themselves as part of this world rather than apart from it.

    In Tribulation, they will declare to be "The Church", but Christ will say they are not "His Church" -He did not come for them!
