God has spoken on the matter of “Social Justice”, by the way get my friend Elgin Hushbeck’s https://www.amazon.com/Wrong-Social-Justice-Elgin-Hushbeck/dp/1631990837 It is a phenomenal book on why putting any word in front of Justice means you do not get Justice. Justice stand alone.
So in Exodus 23 we read “23 “You shall not give a false report; you shall not join hands with the wicked to be a malicious witness [promoting wrong and violence]. 2 You shall not follow a crowd to do [something] evil, nor shall you testify at a trial or in a dispute so as to side with a crowd in order to pervert justice; 3 nor shall you favor or be partial to a poor man in his dispute [simply because he is poor].”
Surely someone will skip a few verses and land on Verse 9 and turn this into an immigration argument. So let me end that here. The word “Stranger” used there is ger pronounced “Gare” meaning sojourner, or temporary dweller. They are subject to following the laws laid down to Moses by God. They are not entitled to inherit anything. In other words they must assimilate for the time that they are there, they are there temporarily (Passing through) just as the Israelites were in Egypt. In fact the scripture specifically says to remember them and treat them as you would have wanted to be treated in Egypt, where they were in fact slaves. Further they are not entitled to any of the same blessing reserved for the Israelite. They inherit nothing.
Now back to verses 1-3 in Chapter 23 of the book of Exodus. This is where you hear the “Social Justice” advocates claiming rights. However this verse speaks against every one of their actions. DO NOT PROMOTE WRONG OR VIOLENCE. Yet they persist in stealing, attacking the innocent and resisting the police authorities. Further they are using mob mentality to pervert justice, and they are claiming a favored status and to be able to circumvent the law because they are “poor:” Scripture specifically forbids doing that. Why? Because the bible teaches that being poor has more to do with attitude and actions than with environment and education. This is why true Jewish people are always so successful wherever they go and whatever they do. They understand that success relies on their efforts and there are no excuses in God’s economy. Work hard and you will prosper with the right attitude. Or blame everything and everyone around you and fail.
