“The biblical foundation is so important,” says Mike Hogan, the Northwest Director of Church Mobilization for International Justice Mission. “Let the bible speak for itself.” Conservatives that dislike social justice are usually reacting against bad theology that tends to replace Christ, theology, and the bible with good deeds. That perception can be overcome by always grounding your position on social justice biblically. Many pastors aren’t aware how often justice surfaces in the bible. “They’ll say, ‘Man, I had no idea, but it’s everywhere in scripture.’”
