New FRC Publication: “Social Justice: How Good Intentions Undermine Justice and Gospel,” by E. Calvin Beisner

Social justice is term that alternately suggests economic redistributionism, on the one hand, and freedom from oppression, on the other. It’s loaded, which is why it is so often used by those looking for a rhetorical weapon with which to convey their indignation over a real or imagined evil. After all, who can be for an unjust society?

Dr. Cal Beisner has written a thorough review not just of what social justice is and is not but of the Bible’s understanding of justice itself. FRC has just published his “Social Justice: How Good Intentions Undermine Justice and Gospel,” in order to bring clarity to this important issue.

Many young Christians are enamored of “social justice,” as their hearts are compassionate and their minds romantic. For them, social justice has the joint ring of nobility and insurgency, a wedding of youthful idealism and youthful rebellion. Yet, does that understanding comport with the Bible’s teaching about true justice in a fallen world?

Cal argues that “the sad and unintended consequences of redistribution” in the name of justice stems from confusion not only over the role of the state but the very nature of, and difference between, justice and grace.

You will seldom find such a combination of careful political thought and biblical exposition in a single, short volume. You can download “Social Justice” at no cost by going to www.frc.org or by clicking on the link above.

FRC releases two new brochures on Human Trafficking and Planned Parenthood

Recently, Family Research Council released two new brochures highlighting the dangers of human trafficking and what people need to know about Planned Parenthood. These brochures are bringing to light two issues that should be addressed by candidates this election.

Human trafficking is a growing problem, not just in the United States, but around the world. This crime is increasing, and according to Stop Child Trafficking Now, the statistics are alarming. Approximately, 2.8 million children run away from home, and one-third of them end up the victims of this tragic crime.

In our new brochure, J. Robert Flores, Esq. sheds light onto this crime, specifically sex trafficking and prostitution. This crime impacts all of us, and it is time for our leaders to take action. Flores explains the efforts that are taking place to combat sex trafficking and the steps you can take to prevent another child from becoming a victim to this crime.

Aside from human trafficking, another issue that is front and center is abortion. With Planned Parenthood being the largest abortion provider in the United States, there has been much controversy behind their practices. Jeanne Monahan, Director, Center for Human Dignity at FRC, has carefully documented the facts behind Planned Parenthoods practices, as well as its negative impact on womens health.

Please feel free to share these brochures with your friends and family and empower them to take action on these issues that threaten the family.
