God’s Justice and Mercy
Now that we have considered God’s love, we have to discuss His justice and mercy. This is a topic you do not want to miss.
On this topic there are several questions:
· Is there justice in God?
· Can God’s justice be called Truth?
· Is there mercy in God? (4) Do justice and mercy exist in every work of God? Can a thing be good and terrible at the same time?
What is the cost of Mercy?
· What is the cost of Justice?
· Mercy and justice: Can they coexist?
Mercy and justice can be viewed as two separate virtues.
While justice seeks resolution, mercy seeks forgiveness.
According to dictionary.com, justice is “the quality of being just; righteousness, equitableness, or moral rightness: to uphold the justice of a cause.” The virtue demands that people have equal rights and opportunities. Everyone, from the poorest person to the wealthiest deserves an even playing field. From a political point of view one can say justice is equal rights. However, the law does not necessarily mean justice.
Mercy is no more important than justice
According to the definition of justice in Miriam Webster's dictionary, the verb, justice is a process for fair judgment. Mercy is a noun described as "a kind or forgiving treatment of someone who could be treated harshly". In this sense, mercy cannot be used without some form of justice because a judgment needs to be made in order to use mercy. In essence, one cannot exist without the other, they are equally important.
According to an article “Wit or Wisdom, the law, or justice, dictates that we all deserve hell forever. We are sinners and a stench in the nose of God” This shows that while law is supposed to be right and just and true, it is not always, and there are exceptions to many rules.
Is justice fair all of the time? In its narrower sense, justice is fairness. It is action that pays due regard to the proper interests, property, and safety of one’s fellows… The principles of justice and fairness can be thought of as rules of “fair play” for issues of social justice… Social justice requires both that the rules be fair, and also that people play by the rules” Maiese says that justice is fairness and that society requires both that the rules be fair, and also that people play by those rules.
