Net Justice is our regular ongoing programme relating to God’s justice.
- The emphasis here is on God’s justice as we recognize that our own ideas of Justice are abstract, debatable, contentious and culturally defined. God’s definition of justice seems to be much more outrageous than our rational balancing of right and wrong.
