It is a comprehensive covenantal relational mandate. 7 It is part of being in relationship with God part of walking with Godbiblically speaking justice is not an autonomous ethical principle.

Your wealth material attitude ego and sense of self-importance mean nothing to God in the grand scheme of things. It is the pursuit of justice righteousness and right making for all that is your true purpose. History has borne witness to our failures.let us come together and let today begin the achieving of our successes in bringing justice and righteousness to the world. #wecantjustsitandwatch #socialjustice #orthodox #orthodoxy #ethiopia #ethiopian #ethiopianorthodoxchurch #justice #righteousness #oneethiopia #onepeople #onepeopleonenation #lalibela #KEYWORDS #Hashtags You can see it here: http://ift.tt/2lc3WxL
