JUSTICE FOR THEE, BUT NOT FOR ME?

We live in a society where “justice” is slowly becoming closer to Hellish injustice than what we have come to expect, equality before the law. Are mere human beings capable of providing true justice? No, God expects us to try to achieve justice, but we have neither the understanding nor the wisdom to fully achieve true justice. Only God is truly just. We are sinful. That is why we need His mercy and grace, not His justice.

What gets in the way of equality for before the law, that is, the impartial administration of justice by our legal system? Well, there are two obvious obstacles.

RULES FOR THEE, BUT NOT FOR ME.

Our elites like the idea of making rules for us, but they have no desire to be held accountable to those same rules. Don’t prideful people like to consider themselves above the rules that apply to the ordinary masses? Instead, many of our leaders seek to manipulate us.

What is an obvious example of manipulation? Consider Naming the Capitol Police Officer Who Killed Unarmed Jan. 6 Rioter Ashli Babbitt – Hellbound and Down (H/T Liberty & Freedom – The Ongoing Revolution to meet America’s Founder’s Original Intent. (wordpress.com)). Remember Ashli Babbitt? She was the only person killed by anyone at the January 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol Building. According to the biased, supposedly mainstream news media, this riot was an armed insurrection. However, the rioters did not have any guns, and these rioters shot no one. Instead, one of the Capitol Police shot an unarmed, female military veteran, and we still don’t officially know that policeman’s name.

Meanwhile, the Democrats in Congress are still trying to use the riot to demonize Donald Trump. Last summer, before the election in 2020, Democrat rioters were burning cities, killing people (including policemen), and even assaulting the White House. What did Democrat politicians and their news media allies think of that? They shrugged it off. Rioting for social justice was understandable. Rioters only became a problem for Democrats when a few thousand unarmed rioters used a Trump rally as cover for an unarmed assault on the Capitol Building.

Why did the assault on the Capitol Building succeed? Democrats — Speaker Nancy Pelosi and company — refused to accept help to protect the Capitol. Then they blamed their incompetence on Trump. In fact, the FBI locked up any rioter they could in solitary confinement.

SOCIAL JUSTICE IS INJUSTICE.

What makes social justice injustice? I first heard this idea offered by Eric Metaxas (God’s Justice is Just as Important As His Love: Eric Metaxas with Owen Strachan | The Christian Outlook). Whereas justice is based upon equality before the law, social justice is about the equity of outcomes. Instead of regarding each person with impartiality, social justice advocates rank us in accordance to their victimhood rules. The academic excuse they use for this is a theory called Intersectionality (see references below).

Now stop and think. How does human nature work? What was that first obstacle again?

RULES FOR THEE, BUT NOT FOR ME.

We are going to give our leaders, politicians we cannot trust, the power to administer social justice? When we cannot trust them to administer plain ordinary justice, we are going to give them more power? Don’t they already have enough power? Are they not already making a mess? Who in their right mind would give our leaders more power? Well, don’t we know? That is the people they have bought and paid for, like the so-called mainstream news media. That also includes those who stand to benefit from the abusive use of power, organizations like the teachers unions and Big Tech corporations.

A LESS OBVIOUS OBSTACLE

We live in a society that is slowly growing more and more paganized. Consider the problem the old Pagans had.

Habakkuk 2:18-20 New American Standard Bible

18 “What benefit is a carved image when its maker has carved it,

Or a cast metal image, a teacher of falsehood?

For its maker trusts in his own handiwork

When he fashions speechless idols.

19 Woe to him who says to a piece of wood, ‘Awake!’

To a mute stone, ‘Arise!’

That is your teacher?

Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver,

Yet there is no breath at all inside it.

20 But the Lord is in His holy temple.

Let all the earth be silent before Him.”

How divorced from reality does someone have to be to worship a piece of wood, stone or metal? Yet our ancestors did such things. Why? The same reason we still do such things. We are more comfortable answering to a god of our own creation than the God who actually made us. When we make our own gods, we get to pretend we can make the rules.

What idols do the new Pagans worship? None? No. Gods of their own creation? Are the new gods made of wood, stone, and metal? Not exactly, but are sex, stuff, science, state, and self gods of our own creation? Yes. Even sex, when we invent dozens of “genders” and reinvent “marriage”, then sexual pleasure becomes a god of our own creation.

How does worshiping sex, stuff, science, state, and self get in the way of justice. To discern what is just, we must discern what is true. When we make sex, stuff, science, state, and self our idols, we do what the old Pagans did. When we make our own gods, we pretend we can make the rules. We distort the truth to make the “truth” whatever we want it to be.

Consider that question that Pontius Pilate asked Jesus Christ just before he sentenced a man he knew to be innocent to crucifixion.

John 18:33-38 New American Standard Bible

33 Therefore Pilate entered the Praetorium again, and summoned Jesus and said to Him, “You are the King of the Jews?” 34 Jesus answered, “Are you saying this on your own, or did others tell you about Me?” 35 Pilate answered, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests handed You over to me; what have You done?” 36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.” 37 Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this purpose I have been born, and for this I have come into the world: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice.” 38 Pilate *said to Him, “What is truth?”

And after saying this, he came out again to the Jews and *said to them, “I find no grounds at all for charges in His case.

What is truth? When we give our lives to the worship of idols, we don’t care.

  1. The battle to defend truth, justice, and the American way continues. The strategy of the enemy changes, but the attempt to destroy America from within is unending. In response, we need continuing faith in God, continuing vigilance, and continuing confidence that government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish. J.

      Don’t know that we should be confident in any institution created by men, but we can be confident in our Lord. For His glory, we can pray He will help us to preserve what is best from our nation.
