I Am He Who Sees: Justice Defined by the Hand of God
What is justice and how can it be defined? Justice has been defined in various ways throughout the development of political, social, economic, philosophical, and religious literature over the centuries. Justice has been defined as a process as well as an outcome. In how many movies have we seen a character who was told that the evil character had suffered some type of setback and the character said, “This is the first time I have believed there is a God!” What is the connection? Why was the suffering of the evil character an example of the existence of God?
This need for right to prevail over wrong is at the foundation of what we call justice. We all believe and need to believe that evil will not triumph and there will be recompense for doing evil. Secular or religious, the need for justice is satisfied in the belief that a “higher power” or “a God” or “the universe” or “karma” will apply the higher truths of right and wrong to the events of mankind, ensuring that evil does not prevail.
I Am He Who Sees: Justice Defined by the Hand of God proposes that justice is defined by who God is and what God does and why God does what He does. Justice, the Scriptures tell us, is in the eyes of God, and His hand will apply justice and the weak will be defended. It is proposed in this book that the utilization of a literal, historical, and contextual hermeneutical review of the Bible itself answers the question of what is justice in the hand of God. Justice includes the proposition that God is involved in the affairs of mankind. Justice, the Scriptures tell us, occurs through the interaction of her three daughters – law, mercy, and grace. The approach taken in this book is that the Bible is true and is used as an exclusive authoritative source for determining the definition, purpose, and operation of justice and law.
