One of the hot topics of society today in light of riots and the Coronavirus and some Supreme Court decisions is social justice and what the Bible teaches regarding the topic. Among this hot topic are several others including abortion, human rights, protection of poverty, self-defense, criminal offenses, and several more. Although all of these concerns remain in the culture as much as they have since the beginning, this article will focus on social justice with keynotes from scripture.
