God’s Justice and Righteousness

R.C. Sproul
The Holiness of God

God’s justice is never divorced from His righteousness.  He never condemns the innocent.  He never clears the guilty.  He never punishes with undo severity.  He never fails to reward righteousness.  His justice is perfect justice.

God does not always act with justice.  Sometimes He acts with mercy.  Mercy is not justice, but it also is not injustice.  Injustice violates righteousness.  Mercy manifests kindness and grace and does no violence to righteousness.  We may see nonjustice in God, which is mercy, but we never see injustice in God.
