How can they render justice if they don't believe in the God of justice?
Located in 1 Corinthians within Chapter 6 of the MSG
God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be
self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and
furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].
---2 Corinthians 9:8 AMP
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel
after those days, says the Lord: I will imprint My laws upon their
minds, even upon their innermost thoughts and understanding, and engrave
them upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My
it will nevermore be necessary for each one to teach his neighbor and
his fellow citizen or each one his brother, saying, Know (perceive, have
knowledge of, and get acquainted by experience with) the Lord, for all
will know Me, from the smallest to the greatest of them.
For I will be merciful and gracious toward their sins and I will remember their deeds of unrighteousness no more.
God speaks of a new [covenant or agreement], He makes the first one
obsolete (out of use). And what is obsolete (out of use and annulled
because of age) is ripe for disappearance and to be dispensed with

Heads up! The days are coming
when I'll set up a new plan
for dealing with Israel and Judah.
I'll throw out the old plan
I set up with their ancestors
when I led them by the hand out of Egypt.
They didn't keep their part of the bargain,
so I looked away and let it go.
This new plan I'm making with Israel
isn't going to be written on paper,
isn't going to be chiseled in stone;
This time I'm writing out the plan in them,
carving it on the lining of their hearts.
I'll be their God,
they'll be my people.
They won't go to school to learn about me,
or buy a book called God in Five Easy Lessons.
They'll all get to know me firsthand,
the little and the big, the small and the great.
They'll get to know me by being kindly forgiven,
with the slate of their sins forever wiped clean.
coming up with a new plan, a new covenant between God and his people,
God put the old plan on the shelf. And there it stays, gathering dust.
---Hebrews 8:10-13 MSG
Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this
life. I don't see many of "the brightest and the best" among you, not
many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn't it obvious
that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and
exploits and abuses, chose these "nobodies" to expose the hollow
pretensions of the "somebodies"? That makes it quite clear that none of
you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everything that we
have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh
start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. That's why we have the
saying, "If you're going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God."
--- 1 Corinthians 1:26-31
