The context test for religious justice

As a companion to my privacy test for religious belief, I offer the following test for religious justice. If you believe that God is just – and that his actions throughout the Bible reflect his conception of justice – ask yourself the following questions:

1. If a particular action or moral prescription in the Bible is just, would you support the same action or prescription in your own society today? (For example, would you support a Congressional bill that adopted Biblical practices such as slavery or the stoning of adulterers?)

2. If you don’t support the translation of such actions or prescriptions into present-day society, can you explain why not?
