A social justice-centered gospel will take you only so far (Mk. 8:36). How can we for whom the gospel was sufficient – and necessary – to change us, expect something other than the gospel to change someone else? To believe that an innately sinful society inherently possesses either the capacity or the ability to bring about the kind of societal equity so zealously desired by contemporary social justicians is both unrealistic and naive. Jesus made this point abundantly clear to the Pharisees when he said to them:

“You blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the outside of it may become clean also.” – Matthew 23:26 (NASB)
