That element is the insistence that God is committed to economic and social justice for the oppressed, the poor, the victimized. Another corresponding aspect to those faiths is a belief in the day of Yahweh or the kingdom of God in which a final triumph of justice for all peoples will triumph in the world.

There was this christian guy on television the other night talking about the loss of animal species that we are losing at a huge rate through humans actions, and the pollution of the planet etc, his reasoning was awful, God has put everything here for us to use as we will, and does not matter about what we are doing to the planet because our final destination ( Christians that is) is heaven. talk about shoving his own responsibilities onto his god. when we truly find the god and goddess within our hearts, then things will start to change, blessings of asset, John Sirius.
