Justice is commonly defined as “getting what is deserved”. We feel injustice is done, therefore, when we see others not getting what they deserve or, more personally, when we don’t get what we feel we deserve. But what about God’s justice? Why does God get to be the one to decide what anyone deserves? And how does he determine that anyway?

In this episode, we dig into the challenging subject of God’s justice, and the struggles people often have with believing that God is really just. Why should God get to decide what’s just? And how can God be just if, according to the gospel, he simply forgives people for their sin when they place their faith in Jesus? How is that fair?

Listen in as Scott and Shawn discover that the key to understanding God’s justice, and justice in general, is to begin with the question, “What does God deserve?”
