The Deception of Social Justice Initiatives in Christianity

Updated on December 11, 2018

PlanksandNails' goal is to be a catalyst in encouraging others to pursue truth and what it means to worship the one true God.

There is a buzzword circulating in the church system called, ‘social justice.’ Many are ignorant of the roots of this supposed noble goal to correct unfairness and bring about equality to our society. This sounds like a good idea, but many don’t realize that it has already manifested in history as communism. The social justice façade seems like a good cause, but under the surface there is a more sinister agenda.

Many people in Christianity are embracing this concept as a valid practice of the Gospel, but this concept has a politically motivated agenda behind it.

It is important to recognize that there is a huge paradigm shift happening within our governing system. Also the institutional church has taken on the guiding principles of humanism, socialism and new ageism.

The Ideology

The ideology starts by getting people from all areas of life motivated to do intrinsically good things to benefit society as a whole. Noble human efforts are the driving forces behind achieving a utopian goal. Reduced down a bit further, it equates to zealous humanists trying to give themselves peace of mind in their human efforts. Ultimately, it gives credit to mankind as the source for peace without God.

The United Nations has a plan. Every year on February 20th, the World Day of Social Justice is observed. Their mandates are about social integration and development objectives into sociopolitical programs that strives for one-world governance.

We must understand that it is not our duty through human effort to promote a platform based on the conviction of doing what man believes is right for the world. Man cannot save this world because it is a fallen and the supposed peace of mind from doing noble efforts in the name of social justice will not redeem it.

Social justice is being mandated as a duty of a citizen. Many fail to understand that this philosophy is the platform for a one-world governance masked in the noble efforts of trying to be just, right and fair. The social gospel has infiltrated Christianity under the guise of activism. It has become more about self-righteous deeds to promote themselves than pointing to God.

Their social 'gospel' uses religious sounding buzzwords and makes people saviours instead of God.

Making a world a better place is doing what God wants. It is about repentance and turning away from the ways of the world. This has nothing to do with the promotion of social justice. Social justice is a platform for the good things that man will do or what they are doing rather than looking to God for the answers.

In a system of free enterprise people can work hard and keep what they earn.

Do you think it would be fair if your hard earnings were taken away from you to support those who opt not to work?

The underlying theme of social justice is not really about helping people who are in need because of an unfortunate situation that was forced upon them. This is out of their control. Rather, it about giving to those that believe that they deserve a fair share from others by what they do not have.

Genuine charity comes from a humble heart to give, not from demanding self-righteous duty or obligation.

He has told you, O man, what is good, and what the Lord demands of you; but to do justice, to love loving-kindness, and to walk discreetly with your God. – Micah 6:8

The social justice that is being promoted is not biblical justice, but a justice implemented and legislated by a worldly government. This means that those who are deemed greedy and wealthy by law can have their assets seized in the name of social justice for redistribution to those who are deemed less privileged.

The concept of freely giving in the New Testament contrasted with government intervention are two vastly different concepts. It is foretold in Scripture that government and religion will merge. We can see the manifestation of it today with the Gospel being replaced with social justice initiative programs.

Social justice is not an acceptable substitute. The message of repentance and faith in Christ must be right at the forefront. The church system has thrown away the issues of repentance, obedience, sin, reverence and holiness. Temporal noble things in the name of peace, unity and tolerance are more acceptable than becoming a new creation in Christ. The corrupt church system has accepted humanistic ideals, syncretism and interfaith initiatives by embracing New Age and Marxist ideals rendered to a common ground of social justice.

The manifestation of social justice takes away freedom for an intrusive system of legislated obedience. This does not allow people to be freely motivated from the heart of love to make charity genuine.

The love of God manifests from an individual’s heart with a cheerful willingness to give to others. A mandated law is the opposite making it a requirement. When there is an involuntary possession of assets from the affluent to others is the allowance for government control over other people's lives. This is the difference between political and spiritual motivation or government control versus allowing God to rule to bring peace and freedom in our leaves.

Noble ideas can deceive those who sincerely want to help the needy by naively going along with a political agenda. The way of God and social justice are not compatible with each other. When Christianity demands social justice, it removes God for humanistic service.

Here is one of the of the goals of the communist party in the United States in 1963:

#27 Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch." - http://www.crossroad.to/Quotes/communism/communism.htm

Benjamen Creme was a new age occultist who gave some insight about the platform of social justice.

The only way to get trust is to share the resources of the world.” “His message can be summarized as: “Share and save the world.” He has not come to found a new religion but as an educator in the broadest sense. He will seek to inspire humanity to see itself as one family, and to create a civilization based on sharing, economic and social justice”

“When men learn to share they will know the meaning of life. When men share they will feel exalted and love what they do. Sharing will make men whole. Sharing will make man One. There is no end to the concept of sharing. It will prove the salvation of men”

“Once again, I repeat: without sharing and justice, my brothers and sisters, man will know no peace... Take, then, the only open course and trust in sharing to relieve the agony of the world... Know, then, the joys of brotherhood. The Principle of Sharing will lead you thereto. Commit yourselves to this cause and know the joy of service”

The text should pretty much sum up the new age platform. Christianity has embraced the deception of social justice because it is a good way to advertise their good deeds as a means to grow their memberships.

Karl Marx believed he had the solution for mankind:

“Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions” (Karl Marx,Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right)

Karl Marx’s words essentially mean that religions should be removed and social justice will solve the world’s issues. This ideology will not bring peace and freedom, but ultimately oppressive governance. History attests to the millions of people who have been killed under communist regimes. Under the illusion of the supposed benevolent front of social justice is really a malevolent means of ultimate control.

Social justice is not about fairness in its distribution even though on the surface it appears to be. The outcome of redistribution of wealth under a one-world- economy controlled by the government is not freedom. For those who are in Christianity, run away from this ecumenical religion of compromise.

You may think you are getting an ‘A’ for effort and feel good about your noble service, but do you not realize that all must be equal?

Your ‘A’ must be redistributed evenly so that you don’t make others look bad for not living up to and serving to the expectation.

Hopefully, if you step back and look at things through a different lens you may see social justice for what it truly is.

Has your view of social justice changed?

      Liberals happily tell Christians that the Bible mandates giving more resources and power to the state as a source of charity. Until it is big enough to crowd out the church as competition for moral authority.
