Citizens are agents of Justice

Love – the obligation to another’s wellbeing – is the foundation of citizenship, “… for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law” (Rom. 13:8). God is clear here – the foundation of sustainable citizenship in any geopolitical space (or nation) must be an unconditional commitment to collective wellbeing, flowing out of freewill from one human to another. In other words, the duty of a citizen is a call to be an agent of justice. And so citizenship and justice cannot be separated.
