Throughout the Old Testament, prophetic voices called the people of God to action on behalf of the oppressed.
“Is this not the fast which I choose . . .
to divide your bread with the hungry
And bring the homeless poor into the house;
When you see the naked, to cover him;
And not to hide yourself from your own flesh? (Isaiah 58:6-7, NASB)
Father of orphans and protector of widows
is God in his holy habitation (Psalm 68:5, NRSV).
But let justice roll down like waters
And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream” (Amos 5:23-24, NASB).
Injustice takes many forms. Many people lack access to adequate nutrition. Many more are taken advantage of because of their gender, ethnicity or social class.
These are important issues that problem solvers in the Church are called to address.
In addition to these problems, how often do we think of unreached communities’ lack of access to the gospel as a justice issue?
How should we respond to the injustices of those who have never read a Bible, never met a Christian, and never heard the name of Jesus?
AGWM is committed to addressing injustice. The Problem Solvers section of the profiles constitutes an invitation to creative, Spirit-inspired believers to partner with AGWM through the Unreached Peoples Imperative.
