A PSA is going viral today on Facebook in reaction to a comment in the media about Christianity and Social Justice:
Since Jesus' preaching of the Kingdom of God had very little to do with the afterlife and everything to do with God's reign (and not the Empire's) here on earth, we'd all better be "social justice Christians" (see Matthew 25:31-46)

At the end, I saw the words from Micah 6:8, one of my touchstone scripture passages. My other touchstone is the Two Great Commandments, both of which point to social justice.
