We should always first of all demand justice from ourselves. Do we cast the first stone?

It is more important to maintain your intergrity. If you cannot get justice from man, God will give you justice.

Mima, we should demand justice when anyone is wronged, white-black, rich-poor, gay-straight, Christian-non-Christian. Not just when we are wronged. But on this site we are obsessed with sexual sins and about remarriage and asking permission to do something. I think DEMANDING justice for everyone is a Christians most effective witness. Justice is one of the three things God REQUIRES.

If there were no justice, then we would be in a lawless society and the criminals would run the streets. One can forgive and still seek justice.

Scripture tells us that we should never take a fellow Christian to court. We should always sort it out with the person; if they won't listen then through 2 or 3 people from church; if it still isn't sorted take the problem to the church generally. What we must not do is wash our dirty linen in public - meaning in the presence of unbelievers.

Wow, wayne, steve, & annon.., great answers. Did Jesus "demand" justice when he stood before Herod and Pilate? Did He demand "justice" the numerous times He was struck? He was as a lamb before His accusers - saying nothing. His laying down His was the only answer concerning the ultimately wronged person - God. Because of our own wicket hearts, none of us are in a place to judge or demand "justice."

Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

, i cannot over-emphasize how important it is to forgive, no matter what has happened. we all deserve God's wrath for all we have done.

Depends on what you mean by "demand justice" in the question. What many mean is that if wronged, then I pursue every avenue to force the person, corporation, nation, to give me what is due or right. This is wrong--Matthew 5:11, 38-42, 44; 1 Peter 2:18-19. The Lord executes justice for all that are oppressed--Psalm 103:6 & 146-5-7. Thus we do not "demand justice" but forgive. Yet we show that justice will be served.

There will be no Godly justice until the Kingdom's of this world become the Kingdoms of our Lord and of Him Christ and He shall reign forever.Rev.
