asked: “How many of us have not, at some time or another, sought an answer to
this question by devising tests of love for our parents?”2 Later, as adults, we
came to realize that genuine love needs no selfjustification. No one can earn a
parent's love or God's, or anyone else's. Love is gift. Even though working
industriously, doing the right thing, or being just does not earn another's love,
justice does express, protect, and strengthen love in relationships. This book
shows how important ...

I submit that whatever may be said about this as an interpretation of Jesus' ethic
of love, there is something perplexing about it as a systematic position. If “the
ideal of love” can serve as a critique of our endeavors to secure justice, why is it
incapable of giving us even the outlines of a social ethic? The ideal pronounces
a “No” on all our endeavors to secure social justice. But it does not only
pronounce a “No.” Discerning, as it does, degrees of approximation to love, it
also pronounces a ...

"Charity is the Supreme Law" At the heart of Christian faith is the conviction that "
God is love" (1 John 4:8), and that "the greatest commandment" is the "law of love
" (See Matthew 22:38-40, etc.). More recently we have renewed our conviction
and heightened our consciousness that the love preached by Jesus was deeply
rooted in his Hebrew tradition of faith that does justice. When Jesus spoke of love
, he meant love that both demands and is built upon justice as "right relationship"

As revelation does not contradict the structures of cognitive reason (otherwise
revelation could not be received), so love does not contradict justice (otherwise it
could not be actualized). This consideration points to something we have to deal
with in the last chapter, namely the dependence of the whole realm of moral
action on the presence of the Spiritual power. The relation of justice to love in
personal encounters can adequately be described through three functions of
creative justice ...

... strives to put into practice what God asks. So faith without a corresponding life
and practice really cannot be genuine faith. It is defective, even dead. According
to the letter of James, “Faith without works is as dead as a body without breath” (2
:26). That statement has long been interpreted to mean faith without love and the
deeds of love is dead; now it is being interpreted to include that aspect of love
and deeds of love which is justice:22 faith without active pursuit of justice is dead.

Altruistic love is also linked to justice because the altruistic moral agent can
respond in care only to a limited and proximate number of persons; the agent
must therefore consider those larger social patterns of social and distributive
injustice that deny all persons the goods necessary for essential well-being (
Churchill, 1987). Hence the notion of "the love that does justice," associated with
thinkers such as Reinhold Niebuhr and Martin Luther King Jr. Altruistic love does
not eclipse care ...

Does love tell us anything about the duties of justice or justice about the duties of
love? Some would say that love and justice have nothing to do with each other.
They speak different languages and work on different premises. Love is practiced
person-to-person; justice is practiced through institutions like government and
courts. Love is spontaneous and generous; justice carefully calculates the merits
of competing claims. Love goes out to people regardless of their undeserving; ...
