The Distiction Between Just and Unjust

on October 18, 2012

Therefore Law [of the Creator] is the distinction between things just and unjust, made in agreement with that primal and most ancient of all things, Nature; and in conformity to Nature‘s standard are framed those human laws which inflict punishment upon the wicked and protect the good.(quoted in W. Cleon Skousen, The Five Thousand Year Leap, p 45)

According to Marcus Tullius Cicero as quoted above, justice is about punishing the wicked and protecting the good. This is also the understanding of justice in the gospel of Jesus Christ. By the teachings of God’s representatives, we know what is good. Unfortunately all of us fall short of the mark at times and need a savior to get us out of the trouble we get ourselves into. Jesus Christ is that savior. Only because of him can we receive mercy instead of Justice.
