Lover of Justice: 5.5in Square

July 8, 2014

_ccrl Lover of Justice

For Jehovah is a lover of justice, and he will not leave his loyal ones.

Psalms 37:28

This is another scripture that demonstrates how God is not responsible for pain and injustice. In my last post I mentioned that the Bible makes three points as to why there is so much suffering in the world. The First Point is HERE.

SECOND POINT: “I turned my attention to all the acts of oppression that go on under the sun. I saw the tears of the oppressed, and there was no one to comfort them. And their oppressors had the power, and there was no one to comfort them.” Ecclesiastes 4:1

“All of this I have seen…that man has dominated man to his harm.” Ecclesiastes 8:9

Since the rebellion of our first parents, mankind has continued in imperfection, falling short of God’s original purpose for us, which is what “sin” is.

“The common Hebrew term translated “sin” is chat·taʼth′; in Greek the usual word is ha·mar·ti′a. In both languages the verb forms (Heb., cha·taʼ′; Gr., ha·mar·ta′no) mean “miss,” in the sense of missing or not reaching a goal, way, mark, or right point.” Insight on the Scriptures

We “miss the mark” of perfection, which only God’s Kingdom under our King and Ransomer, Jesus Christ, can restore.

Sinful and imperfect people make decisions that lead to conflict and violence, oppression and suffering. God is not responsible for this. Isn’t it important to place blame where it is due?
