Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” What I am saying is that our allegiance has already been sealed for us at the cross, and because of that allegiance, we should not be so quick to label a gospel issue as political simply as to not cause debate.

Instead, we should look to the God of our hope and see where our doctrine might dictate our duty.

This was Perry’s opening line to her speech at the MLK50 Conference in Memphis, Tennessee this past April 3.

The justification for her statement came as she explained that a week or so prior, what is estimated to be the largest youth protest since the Vietnam War took place under the banner of the March for Our Lives.

Because of this, we cannot segregate our passion for doctrine from our practice of duty. “By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.

But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?

May we show them the true aim of justice, the gospel hope.

Christ gave us the ultimate example of the fight for justice as He humbled Himself – not counting His equality with God something to be grasped – and placed Himself on the cross, breaking down any wall of hostility.

We can preach the gospel of a God who loves justice, and teach a proper theology of His omnibenevolence.

Yet, if we then ignore the hurting or those in need, or ask them to come to our doors, then we have become like the man in James -25 who forgets his own face.

This is an obedience that comes not from obligation, but from adoration.

We teach them to love the law because we love the giver of the law.

This is a right and good love, because it is what God loves.
