Evangelical Leaders Stand Up For Criminal Justice Reform

by Melissa Browning Evangelical Leaders Stand Up For Criminal Justice Reform, An ON Scripture Feature. A reflection by Melissa Browning (Jun 27, 2017) On Scripture Video.

On June 20th, 2017, 100 Christian leaders across the United States of America launched the Justice Declaration to reform our nation’s criminal justice system.  The signatures of 1800 and counting Christian leaders is just one example of how the movement to reform the many injustices inherent in how our country enforces its laws and neglects the restorative aspect of justice has been gaining ground amongst Catholics and Protestants, evangelical and mainline.  Organizations like the Prison Fellowship continue to educate and organize church leaders and communities on the tradition handed down from our Biblical ancestors to speak truth to power and to seek the freedom of all even at great risk.
When we think about the ancestors of our faith, we have to admit that we come from rabble-rousers and trouble-makers. The Apostle Paul is a great example. He was always in and out of prison. If Paul were living today under the three-strikes laws that are enforced in 28 states, he might have been locked up for life. Christianity as we know it might have never come to be. [More].
