The word "just" has to do with being morally right or good. The word "justice" is acting in accordance with being just; in other words doing that which is morally right or good. In a past thread a veteran poster on this board suggested that Calvinists ignore the justice of God. This is not a Calvinist debate thread; rather it is a discussion on whether God is just and practices justice. In the Pentateuch we see the word "justice" most commonly used in a legal context. Some examples: Exodus 23:6 "You shall not pervert the justice due to your needy brother in his dispute." Deuteronomy 16:19-20 "You shall not distort justice; you shall not be partial, and you shall not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous. Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue, that you may live and possess the land which the LORD your God is giving you." Deuteronomy 24:17 "You shall not pervert the justice due an alien or an orphan, nor take a widow's garment in pledge." God will always do that which is right or just. He will reward the innocent and punish the guilty. It is no different in salvation. The innocent are those who have been born again. The guilty are those who die in their sins. God will reward those who have been born again with eternal life. The guilty will be punished in the lake of fire for eternity. That, my friend, is God's justice.
