95 Theses for Christian Racial & Ethnic Unity: #78

[T]he human ability to agree on justice will never catch up with the human propensity to do injustice. We must therefore not only make judgments before agreement is reached—something we in fact inescapably do; we must also act in accordance with these judgments. The Scriptures uniformly call us not so much to reflect on justice as to do justice. . .reflecting about justice must serve doing justice.
