Humanitarian Jesus: Social Justice and the Cross by Ryan Dobson

A resurgence of the Social Gospel is energizing many evangelicals, but what does the Bible say about the role of humanitarian works in the Christian life? As new covenant believers, Christians are called to a specific central task: to be ministers of Gods message of salvation for sinners. At the same time, the New Testament justifies nearly every concern of the revitalized Social Gospel. Care for the poor and needy, reconciliation of social and racial divisions, and nurture for the sick and abused -- all can be biblical and Christ-honoring activities.

Ryan Dobson and Christian Buckley have a message for believers on either side of the battle lines hardening around todays Social Gospel. To those on the Religious Left, they say: Dont forget that Jesus Christ died to save sinners, not to bring about political change. To those on the Religious Right, they say: Dont forget that Jesus spent much of his time helping the sick, the poor, and the needy. A corrective and a call to action all in one, Humanitarian Jesus shows that evangelism and good works coexist harmoniously when social investment is subservient to and supportive of the churchs primary mission of worship, evangelism, and discipleship.

In accessible and non-academic style, Dobson and Buckley outline the biblical case for humanitarian concern. They also engage the topic through interviews with leading Christian thinkers, activists, and humanitarian workers -- including Franklin Graham, Gary Haugen, Ron Sider, Tony Campolo, and many more -- seeking to define a broadly biblical approach to good works that all Christians can join hands around.

Join us, June at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota, for this exciting Summit. Selling a human being. Abusing a child. Stealing from a widow.

Below is a quote from a well known Christian author. I am curious as to any reactions to this. Personally, I disagree…Jesus came to rescue sinners of all types-not just the oppressed. I Have been reading some info on both sides of the debate about social justice and Christianity, most recently with reactions to the Dallas statement. I have studied a good bit of philosophy and am detecting the socialist leanings of some of the Christian social justice advocates.

This word, coupled with the phrases “income redistribution,” “property redistribution,” and “equality of outcome,” says a great deal about social justice.

Political Social Justice

From Dr. Because the social justice movement is actually Cultural Marxism. In fact, in the Bible, justice never has an adjective. Not considered are the millions of unborn children slaughtered by abortion. So social justice is less about loving people and more about pushing a particular narrative. Only God is just. Revelation

    When you hear the term “social justice,” what emotion do you feel? For some people, the term evokes thoughts of “justice” for them personally.
