Statement On Social Justice and the Gospel – I find this good and biblical except for Items VIII and XIV entitled “The Church” and “Racism”, respectively for these are malformed and misinformed with respect to the integration (integral participation) with society so as to influence political/social justice for the gospel includes both getting saved and living the saved life and influential participation in society is an important element of living the saved life.

In VIII the first denial statement should be changed to read as follows:
WE DENY that political or social activism should be viewed as primary to the mission of the church; yet, we also DENY that such activities are not an integral component of the gospel for the gospel is about both getting saved and living saved. Believers can and should utilize all lawful means that God has providentially established to have some effect on the laws of a society for such is evidence of saving faith and constitutes a non-primary but secondary central part of the church’s mission given to her by Jesus Christ, her head. We deny that laws or regulations possess any inherent power to change sinful hearts.

In XIV the last sentence should be deleted and the period ending the next to last should be replaced with an semicolon and the following inserted: yet, we emphatically deny that the preaching/teaching against racism and social injustice is not inportant in our churches as exemplified by Jesus teaching on loving thy neighbor (Matthew 22:34-40) and James 2 preaching/teaching against partiality.
