Description

Advocacy for social justice is not prominent within the Seventh-day Adventist Church. For example, the church remains silent while thousands of children are subject to servitude in Haiti as the government fails to enforce the legislation that protects their rights. This paper aims to remove some misunderstandings regarding advocacy, which some assume to refer to “doing politics,” usually quoting Ellen White. The paper proposes a biblical foundation for advocacy by identifying three areas where it can be applied: salvation, righteousness or ethics, and social justice.
