What RIGHTS is he taking about? The song says… “We know when we understand: Almighty God is a living man” What do you think he meant by this? For Christians JUSTICE is not only about the law or punishing criminals. Christians believe that they should behave JUSTLY, which means… TREATING OTHER PEOPLE IN A FAIR AND JUST WAY. Use the following slides to work out WHY Christians believe this and WHY JUSTICE is important to Christians. “This is what the LORD says :Maintain JUSTICE and do what is right” (Isaiah 56:1) This means… God expects humanity to act in a JUST way. “So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:27) The Bible teaches… Everyone was created equally by God and should therefore be treated fairly and justly . ‘Love thy neighbour” Jesus taught… everyone should be treated equally and fairly (e.g. by helping the poor and those in need) ‘…do to others what you would have them do to you…’ (Matthew 7:12) This means… treat everyone in the same way, in the right way, how you would expect to be treated. Churches teach their congregation to… behave JUSTLY, they promote helping the poor and those in need. On Judgement Day… God will judge humanities behaviour on Earth – those that have behaved JUSTLY will be rewarded and those that have acted UNJUSTLY will be punished.
