Did you know that in the U.S. only 10% of serious crimes ever end up being solved? Something has to change. Matt Martens a lawyer and author of “Reforming Criminal Justice” joins host Joseph Backholm in a discussion about what the framework of a biblical justice system looks like. Matt and Joseph dive into the many questions surrounding justice system reform: Are too many people imprisoned? What needs to be shifted for the system to fit a more biblical model? Is the Old Testament Law applicable today? We are reminded that most things are not black and white and that our definition of justice should be one rooted in biblical principles and truths! We are all broken vessels, worthy of redemption.
