Christian advocacy imitates Jesus who lived as poor among the poor of the land, healed those who were brought to him, and gave himself for the forgiveness of debts – both spiritual and material.
The church draws from Jesus the outline of its advocacy for public policy: to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, release the captives, forgive the indebted, welcome the foreigner, heal the sick, to repay the defrauded, to suffer empathy for those who suffer deprivation.
Moreover, as Jesus says that we are to seek justice first and all the things that we need in the world will be given to us.
For God has based creation in equity and justice.
We are witnesses to the things that God has done through Jesus. Things that the marketplace can never duplicate.
