Justice and Our Reformed Confessions

Doing justice is an integral part of how Reformed churches understand the call of the Gospel. We’re marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation this month by listening carefully to our Reformed confessions. What does the call to do justice sound like in the Belgic Confession? What does the Heidelberg Catchesim’s treatment of the Ten Commandments teach us about what it looks like to love our neighbors? What do the Canons of Dort have to do with “the widow, the stranger, and the orphan?”
