How biblical is today’s social justice movement? Amid a group of professors, the head of an emerging coalition of progressive, urban Christians spoke plainly.
“Social justice is biblical justice as applied to the social context,” said Justin Giboney, AND Campaign co-founder and president, during a forum last Friday discussing whether today’s social justice movement squares with biblical justice. “The Christian social justice mission is not a complete embrace of a secular progressive agenda.”
The forum, titled “Social Justice: Biblical and Secular,” was hosted by Baylor University’s Washington, D.C. program and the Christian nonprofit Faith & Law.
The latter hosts reading groups, film screenings and congressional breakfasts on Capitol Hill, bringing a wide variety of distinguished speakers before members of Congress and congressional staffers to address contemporary political and cultural issues.
Friday’s webinar is the virtual, COVID-inspired version of the organization’s weekly discussion for U.S. House and Senate staffers.
