A Problem With Social Justice

Rachel Chimits
August 7, 2019

Our God is deeply interested in integrity and justness, but being an agent of those virtues in the world as a believer can be a troubling task.

In the Western world, miracles seem to be an anomaly but what if they shouldn’t be?

Miraculous signs and wonders can make some believers uneasy, particularly after they’ve observed televangelists like Benny Hinn whose “healing” services are more akin to an episode of TLC’s Long Island Medium than anything else.
