"Seek justice, reprove the ruthless, defend the orphan, plead for the widow" (Isaiah 1:17). As a Christian, this is a direct call to social justice. To respond to this by creating a website broadly labelled "The Statement on Social Justice & the Gospel," in which you brand the "nebulous rubric of concern for 'social justice'" as full of "dangerous ideas and corrupted moral values," cite the Bible in fighting this "philosophy and empty deceit" (referencing Paul no less), and choose to reaffirm your faith in conclusion, is to make the gospel a moral abomination. If you who signed this demand people to attempt to truly understand your message, you are equally responsible to put in the effort of making your message exceptionally understandable to those people. Change "social justice" to "Marxist, leftist ideologies" and be exceptionally clear as to not slander the gospel.
