Social justice - By Paul Calzada

"If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of food ... and one of you says to them: Go in peace, be warmed and rassasiez- you and you do not give them what is necessary to the body , What is it used for ? "(Jacques 2.14 / 17).


The Bible does speak of social justice? Before answering this question, it is necessary that we give a brief definition of social justice. Social justice is a principle that seeks equal rights among all members of society, and that ensures fair and equitable distribution of wealth among all.
The idea is nice, and policy seek to achieve this ideal through some rules, but sometimes there is conflict between the principle of equality (eg everyone has the right to be cared for care), and the principle of equity (allowances are given according to the level of resources). The principle of equality is that all pay tax (VAT), the principle of equity is that the rich pay more taxes than the poor (income tax or wealth tax). Social justice is perfect, but we all know that all societies of yesterday and today operate on the reality of social injustice. There have been, and there always will be, the poor and the rich, the wealthy and the destitute. That policies are trying to make some corrections here and there, that's fine, but that will not prevent social injustice to persist because of human selfishness.

What answers the Bible she brings to the issue of social justice? She addresses the issue? Yes the Bible is interested in issues of social justice. It contains rules to defend the widow and the orphan, the stranger and the poor. I have found that few of the many verses that speak about: Exodus 22:22; Deuteronomy 14.29; Deuteronomy 16.11; Deuteronomy 24.17 / 21; Isaiah 1.17; Jeremiah 22.3; Zechariah 7.10.

In the New Testament, besides what Jacques said in the verse of the day, the apostle John says: "If anyone has the world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his bowels, how God's love demeure- there in him? "(1 John 3.16 / 18).
What is required here is not only to see and be moved, but also to act. Social justice is seen in the New Testament from the perspective of individual responsibility. Only those who have given up selfish inclination, letting Christ live in them, will be the actors involved in the company, to bring some social justice.

My decision today:
I want to be attentive to the needs of those around me and help them according to my possibilities.
