I have read and signed the official statement from the https://statementonsocialjustice.com/ It both affirms the Gospel and denies the issue of Social Justice. Some of the denial aspects brings up the issue of my recent past of Voluntaryism and my high view of this particular philosophy. The Gospel Alone saves not Voluntaryism nor Social Justice. Yes, I’m denying volutnaryism and social justice. The reason why Social Justice is getting much more attention than Voluntaryism is the fact that Social Justice is a lot more popular (for some insane reason). It is a lot more reasonable to up hold Voluntaryism than Social Justice. But both have pitfalls of their own. This is why I affirm the Statement on Social Justice. The same principles that this statement affirms and denies must be applied to Voluntaryism and any other man made philosophy. Sure, in terms of man’s philosophy, Voluntaryism is up there but it still falls short. The Gospel is the only thing that can save a person from Biblical sins.
As a Reformed Christian, I must signed this document. I how ever will not hold it against anybody that doesn’t sign this statement. It does not hold any authority it is just a statement putting a high view of Scripture and the Gospel and denying social justice.
Social Justice must not enter in the life of the church or if it has already entered into a church, it must go away. I have a feeling that this issue would only divide the church even further. I believe that accepting social justice in the life of the church makes it impossible to do church. Social Justice makes non-sins sins. Which makes actual sins less sinful. Also, Social Justice is impossible to live up to. My ancestors have no bearing over my life in terms of sins. My sins are my doing, not my ancestors nor my future children or grandchildren (if God allows me to have them). If my ancestors have sin, it is on themselves not on me. I can not suffer from my ancestors sins, because if I tried to redeemed myself from the sins of my ancestors there is no hope. Every generation that goes along through the ages will have to spend their life time seeking forgiveness for their ancestors’ sins plus their own sins.
Our culture is already messed up the way it is, especially in terms of social justice. The church should not accept this type of thinking and philosophy. This has been going on in the social justice realm for many years in our culture. There has been a big fight outside of the church that been going on over the years about social justice and how illogical it is, in terms of accepting social justice. Social justice is illogical, to accept. Of course there are those outside of the church in our culture are on both sides of the social justice issue(s), but this issue must be on the side of True Biblical Justice not Social Justice. I have to term “True Biblical Justice” because many people inside the church have switched out the word “Biblical” to “Social.” This is a hill that I’m willing to die on, because of the issue of the Gospel. I’m willing to die for the Gospel and for Jesus. Hence my website’s name, is “Jesus Freak.” I’m in full rebellion to Satan’s kingdom. I will stand for the Gospel and the Trinity God, (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). I hope that this explains why I’m so much against Social Justice and it needs to go away.
