Authority, Equity and Equality
Equity and equality are two key aspects of justice that are to flow from authority. These concepts today, however, are actively being used and distorted in an ironic twist by those actually seeking inequity and domination. We are expected to pursue justice in our dealings, but we must be careful to not bring worldly ideas about justice into the church. As the ultimate authority, God operates with complete fairness and truthfulness, but also in abounding generosity, and we are to look to Him and His Word for the wisdom needed to understand His mind and actions regarding equity and equality.
