What could possibly be wrong with social justice? We like justice. We are social beings. Should not our communities be just ones? Author Elgin Hushbeck, Jr. maintains that social justice is not justice. When we pursue social justice, it is at the expense of true justice and in its pursuit of equality, social justice threatens liberty. It is a case of setting contradictory and incompatible goals. Hushbeck examines our current pursuit of social justice and how it has failed, while looking also at the scriptures we use in that pursuit and how we have misunderstood them. While we should care about our neighbors and find ways to ease the plight of the poor, social justice’s emphasis on redistribution is not only often unjust but it actually makes things worse. His prescription? Pursue justice and liberty without any adjectives.

When we consider what social justice is... how quickly is justice modified by economic necessity? How can individuals act/behave in ways that recomfirm the tennants of real social justice, ie compassion, generosity, understanding, "do unto others as you would have them do unto you..." etc. Can social justice only be spoken about in churches and practiced among the participants in your church? When you leave the church, and you mingle with general society, you may imagine potential enemies, competitors that may effect your survival and that of your family among random masses of people. This leads you to curb your natural impulses toward social justice. Can a 90 year old man be applauded for feeding the homeless in a public park... and not repremanded and arrested? Where is social justice in our lives today and how can it be encouraged?
