Social justice is a gospel issue?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

That statement—“Social justice is a gospel issue”—has become the rallying call of many evangelicals, as in Christians must work to end perceived oppression.  But is that biblically supportable?

Well, what did Jesus say and do?  Did He work to end the structures of racism, sexism, and the myriad of other injustices of His day?  The answer is no.  He preached the saving gospel of repentance of one’s individual sins and faith in Himself that results in a new heart that loves God and treats all people with compassion and justice.
