"Justice or Christ?"

John Piper insightfully reminds us that simply "doing good" or "doing more good" is not enough, justice - in and of itself - cannot be the answer for only Christ provides a complete and sufficient response to injustice and evil.

"Treating people as they deserve is not a Christian life . . . we don't get justice in the gospel, God got justice in the gospel . . . We don't get justice in the gospel, we get grace . . . Christ will be known in the culture when we treat people better than they deserve not as they deserve."
