Some people call for “justice,” but they have prejudged the outcome. They falsely use the term “justice” to hide their usually racially-prejudiced demand. Solomon said: “Evil men do not understand justice, But those who seek the LORD understand all” (Proverbs 28:5 NKJV). God had commanded Israelites through Moses: “You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous” (Deuteronomy 16:19 NKJV). Justice is served with regard for law and not skin color or wealth. It was a prejudiced, blood-thirsty mob who demanded their meaning of “justice” for Jesus, but “In His humiliation His justice was taken away, And who will declare His generation? For His life is taken from the earth” (Acts 8:33 NKJV).
