No Truth, No Justice

"Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face." –Psalm 89:14

In this episode of Standing Firm, Pastor James Brown Jr reviews some statements by Pastor Tim Keller concerning The Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel. We live in a strange time when words have  no meaning, but they do have legs. Pastor Keller has stated that we should not look at the words but at what they do as if they can grow limbs and jump off the page into action. We are seeing the effects of Postmodernism on the Church. Everything is being deconstructed to the point of meaningless. When there is no meaning there is no truth; and where there is no truth there can be no justice.

Why We Signed The Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel

After much prayer, consideration, and discussion, Reformed Church of the Holy Trinity has affirmed The Statement of Social Justice. We do so with great care and attention, not only to the actual words of the statement, but also the peace and edification of the Church regardless of ethnicity, cultural background, nation, denomination, or any way in which the saints may be categorized.  Edification is not always easy, but it is necessary for us to clarify our Biblical position on these topics dividing the Church and tearing our society apart.

Please take the time to read this statement in the spirit of Christian charity and according to the context of its actual words, grammatical structure, and topics. There has been too much accusation and not enough consideration among those who profess the faith once delivered unto the saints. It is easy to read into things based upon our presuppositions, but if we are to be true Bereans, our examination of this statement must be by searching the Scripture to see if these things are so (Acts 17:11).

Is Christianity a Religion or a Relationship?

In this episode of Standing Firm, Pastor James Brown Jr discusses some erroneous doctrinal motto’s like “no creed but the Bible,” “Christianity is a relationship and not a religion,” and the idea that we need to focus on original intent to the avoidance of Scripture. Whether it is Andy Stanley’s unhitching of the Old Testament, Lauren Daigle’s “Losing My Religion,” or cultural activists focusing on a phony idea of original intent, this episode confronts the modern heretical slide into apostasy.
