How can we help to uphold justice and defend the innocent?

 

How can we help to uphold justice and defend the innocent?

a. By teaching them to walk in the truth.
b. By speaking up for the rights of the helpless.
c. By teaching them not to have any dealings with the wicked.
d. By teaching them not to take revenge.

The devil’s strategy is to cause people to burn with hatred resulting in a vicious cycle of vengeance and destruction. When one takes justice into his own hands, God can no longer execute justice on his behalf. The apostle Paul teaches the way to combat evil,

Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

~Romans 12:19-21

God will reward and vindicate those who do all to establish truth and justice in their community and country. Jesus, in standing for the truth gives up His life on the cross but is vindicated by God who raises Him from the dead. Likewise, God will stand for us and see to our vindication.
