The subject of justice is a common topic today--being discussed by preachers, singers, writers, and bloggers. Injustice and suffering have a special way of stirring our passion and they should do so. The plight of the poor burdens us and even makes us angry. And the Bible has much to say on these topics. The Church must be deeply involved in justice; Jesus is the king of justice.
But there is a greater injustice in the earth occurring right now, bigger than hunger, genocide, human trafficking, abortion, or any of the other massive problems we grieve over and long to address. The greatest injustice is the lack of teaching on the majesty of Christ Jesus and the knowledge of God. Yet so often, the discussion of justice is centered on something else--imagining that so long as we are focused on the poor or on solving justice issues, we are in the way of Jesus and in keeping with Christianity. This is an error. --From the Foreword by Mike Bickle

Review 1 for False Justice: Unveiling the Truth About Social Justice
From an early age Stuart Greaves became an observer in the social dynamics prevalent on an international scale. In his book “False Justice – Unveiling the Truth about Social Justice” he provides the basis for a melding of personal faith in Jesus Christ and his own affinity toward social injustice and the socioeconomic disparity across racial lines.
Greaves provides amazing Biblical insights into the plight of the poor, struggling with poverty, hunger, human trafficking, abortion, genocide, and human inequality. He then translates these perceptions into spiritual applications for implementing a Christ centered paradigm of justice.
As I read, I begin to examine my own personal commitment and motivation to explore social justice in light of the Christian principles I champion. I begin to relate the moral responsibility of society to the small acts of kindness we exercise individually. I may never impact legislation, sway social reform, eliminate racism, eradicate poverty, or abolish the political corruption rampant at many levels of government but I was awakened to a need for being spiritually relevant while being socially realistic. I determined to challenge the sophisticated, ethical, pharisaical, religious attitudes prevalent in society today.
The book is divided into two parts: Part I: Introduces the progression of justice, false messengers, the false gospel, and false worship and religion. Part II: Presents A Global Worship Movement for Justice, The Gospel as the true message of justice, The Messiah Jesus, as the just one, a man of war, and a charge for commitment. Greaves’ meticulous research is well documented, awe-inspiring resource for further reading and study.
Stuart Greaves’ book “False Justice – Unveiling the Truth about Social Justice” provides an impressive Biblical treatise a Clarian call for Change in the Foundational Paradigm of Justice. Highly recommended.
