Justice is usually considered to be the righteous application of law and order against those who misuse power, break laws, and harm others. Justice punishes and corrects the evildoer and warns others from urusuing a similiar path. What is problematic in this definition is it neglects the victim and fails to see that grace is the fruit of justice, not its polar opposite. Grace is not the exception to justice but its fulfillment. Justice merely puts everyone at the same level with no one using unjust power to escape the face of God.  (93).
