“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1) “And God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3) “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21) Words are powerful. Words are agents of change. Scripture has declared it, and history has evidenced it. In this age, as in every age before us, there is injustice, oppression, and deep-seated evil. As Christians, we are called to live as salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16) in this dark world. And if Christ said that He had come to fulfil the prophesies spoken by Isaiah when the prophet said, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound,” (Isaiah 61:1) then as Christians, are we not called to do the same? The Bible is filled with verses about seeking justice for the oppressed and those who are in need. Whether the widow or the orphan, the poor or the sick, the prostitute or the tax collector; Jesus did not discriminate.
