Should churches join the social justice movement? – 2 Tim 2:24-25

“And the Lord’s slave must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition…”

The world is under the control of Satan and hates us. It is no wonder that we are opposed almost automatically. In dealing with people, we need to learn not to take the bait. We should study the Gentle Art of Verbal Self Defense and counter with the truth of the gospel. Repent and Believe is sufficient for the gospel. It is not necessary to join the theology of social justice warriors – the unsaved person is dead in their trespasses and needs desparately the truth of the gospel.

"It wasn't a potential atonement actuated by the sinner, it was an actual atonement initiated by the savior."

John MacArthur
