From Thursday, Oct. 14, to Saturday, Oct. 16, the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University will host the Congress on Social Justice, an event designed to highlight global issues of imbalance as well as the biblical solutions that address them.
The biblical account of Creation informs us that humanity was created in God’s image and granted authority to rule over other animate beings that God created during the fifth and sixth days of that first week (Genesis 1:26–28). God also authorized humanity to take care of other elements of His creation (Genesis 2:15). Unfortunately, the entrance of sin brought disequilibrium to all relationships and disrupted the ecological balance (Genesis 3:16–18). Humanity longs for renewal and restoration, and Christianity claims the promise of recreation (Revelation 21:1, 5). However, we are not called to sit idly by while waiting for the divine fulfillment of the promise. Biblical prophets call for immediate action to address existing injustices in an effort to affirm the Imago Dei (see Isaiah 1:17; 61:1–2; Amos 5:24; Micah 6:8; Matthew 23:23; James 5:1–6).
The Congress on Social Justice is designed to bring attention to global issues of imbalance as well as the biblical solutions that address them. In the process, it will be seen that an intimate link exists between caring for creation in its fullness and beauty and proclaiming the Three Angels’ Message of Revelation 14.
