- "Matthew 23: In Verse 23 you mentioned that Baptists are guilty of this too often: missing the the larger issues of justice.  Would you mind to give a couple of examples of the issues of justice?" - In that section, Jesus says that the Pharisees are good at attending to minor issues, but miss the larger issues like justice.  Let me give an example that is long-standing around us.  Large studies have found that in America blacks are sentenced to significantly longer prison sentences than whites for similar crimes.  Obviously that is unjust.  Everyone should be equal in the eyes of the law.  If one race is getting significantly harsher sentences, that's clearly an injustice.  And yet when many white conservative Christians list the issues that matter most to them when it comes to government, that injustice is not even on their radar, let alone something that they'd be willing to speak up for.  I could give reasons why I think that is so, but that's an essay for another time.  The point that needs to made here is that this is a clear, long-standing injustice and most white conservative Christians aren't troubled by it.
