Unjust policies #BlackLivesMatter

December 3, 2014

The whole system is corrupt. The justice system is built on unjust policies. Judgment always tips towards power and away from the oppressed. But when you deprive the poor and oppressed of justice, just remember that there is a Judge who stands with the vulnerable and will set things right. You are and will be accountable for your apathy and willful ignorance of the pain you caused.

 

“Those who enact unjust policies are as good as dead,

those who are always instituting unfair regulations,

to keep the poor from getting fair treatment,

and to deprive the oppressed among my people of justice,

so they can steal what widows own,

and loot what belongs to orphans. 

What will you do on judgment day,

when destruction arrives from a distant place?

To whom will you run for help?

Where will you leave your wealth?”

(Isaiah 10:1-3, NET)
