So What Is Justice, Really?

What is justice? It's a threshold question for any society. The classic definition handed down through the ages is simply seeing that "each person gets his due." Fair enough. But secular liberals and secular conservatives today interpret this very differently—and their views translate into very different public policies.

What Is Justice?

The problem is that humans don't behave the way we should in order for human society to function as God intends.

"Three decades of ministry in the criminal justice arena have taught me that neither conservatives nor liberals have it right. The real answer is not an either/or approach; it is the biblical view, which embraces both the distributive and retributive models."
After spending well over two decades in the criminal justice arena myself, I totally agree with Mr. Colson on this point.
Humanity, in large part, has simply chosen to ignore God. Won't they be surprised when Jesus returns...
Pray, folks.

Peace, love and mercy...
