Episode 7 Show Notes
The Bible is not a constitution or book of political philosophy, but we can still ask:
What is ‘justice’?
Ed says it’s charity.
Coyle says it depends on how we’re using the word.
Both agree that it has to do with how we treat the poor.
No one gets to ignore justice, regardless of their political convictions.
Justice is ultimately seen in Hell, the Cross, and the Second Coming, but we work for it in this life.
