What does the Bible say about justice?
Our God is a God of justice and He never perverts it. We are to be followers of the Lord and we’re to never judge unfairly. God will give everyone what they deserve. It is said by many fake Christians that God loves and He never hates, which is a lie.
Satan is deceiving people so they can rebel against God’s Word.
Jesus didn’t come so you can keep on sinning. Shall we continue in sin that grace may increase.
If you love kids that means you hate abortions. God loves, but He hates the wicked. It’s not the sin that will be thrown into Hell it’s the wicked person.
If someone killed your family members and the judge let him go free, you would be outraged and you would feel like the law doesn’t stand. God is an honest judge.
He will not let evildoers go free and if He did He would be a liar and He would be unjust. How can God forgive the wicked and still be just? How can a Holy God have fellowship with evil people?
God came down from Heaven and He measured out the punishment. It was God who shed His blood. Jesus Christ was crushed for your sins and it pleased God to crush His son.
God’s love was poured out on the cross. Justice was served on the cross. The price for your life was paid in full. Your life is not your own. He is your everything and without Him you wouldn’t have life.
When you truly believe in Christ and what He did for you, you won’t want to go back to those things He died for. Remember that the Bible says to repent. True faith in Christ for salvation will change your life. The Lord’s sheep will hear His voice. We must never stop preaching about the doctrine of regeneration.
Christian quotes about justice
“Love was compressed for all history in that lonely figure on the cross, who said that he could call down angels at any moment on a rescue mission, but chose not to – because of us. At Calvary, God accepted his own unbreakable terms of justice.” Philip Yancey
“God in his infinite mercy has devised a way by which justice can be satisfied, and yet mercy can be triumphant. Jesus Christ, the only begotten of the Father, took upon himself the form of man, and offered unto Divine Justice that which was accepted as an equivalent for the punishment due to all his people.” Charles Spurgeon
“Delayed justice was as bad as injustice.” Brent Weeks
“The Christian gospel is a summons to peace, calling for justice beyond anger, mercy beyond justice, forgiveness beyond mercy, love beyond forgiveness.” – Wendell Berry
“God is not unjust. No one will be condemned for not believing a message they have never heard. Those who have never heard the gospel will be judges by their failure to own up to the light of God’s grace and power in nature and in their own conscience.” – John Piper
“We cannot begin a conversation about justice anywhere but at the cross of Jesus.”
“Justice is what is established; and thus all our established laws will necessarily be regarded as just without examination, since they are established.” – Blaise Pascal
“I am thankful that justice is in the hands of God.” A.W. Tozer
“It is at the cross where God’s Law and God’s grace are both most brilliantly displayed, where His justice and His mercy are both glorified. But it is also at the cross where we are most humbled. It is at the cross where we admit to God and to ourselves that there is absolutely nothing we can do to earn or merit our salvation.” Jerry Bridges
“Men feel that cruelty to the poor is a kind of cruelty to animals. They never feel that it is an injustice to equals; nay it is treachery to comrades.” G.K. Chesterton
“I feel that if God should smite me now, without hope or offer of mercy, to the lowest hell, I should only have what I justly deserve; and I feel that if I be not punished for my sins, or if there be not some plan found by which my sin can be punished in another, I cannot understand how God can be just at all: how shall he be Judge of all the earth, if he suffer offenses to go unpunished?” – Charles Spurgeon
“The Incarnation through the death of Christ makes it possible for God to be “just, and the justifier of him that believeth in Jesus.” If God should be merciful without the satisfaction of justice, He would cease to be a God of justice and would thus forfeit His throne of righteousness. In a word, He would cease to be God.” A.C. Dixon
“Sin is the dare of God’s justice, the rape of His mercy, the jeer of His patience, the slight of His power, and the contempt of His love.” John Bunyan
“The punishment must fit the crime. The misery and torment of hell point to the wickedness and seriousness of sin. Those who protest the biblical doctrine of hell as being excessive betray their inadequate comprehension of the sinfulness of sin. For sinners to be consigned to anything less than the horrors of eternal punishment would be a miscarriage of justice.” Tom Ascol
