Introduction ·      
          Fairness is one of the most talked about topics in our current day; especially in the current election season.
  • We see the worldly idea is things like politics and sports.
  • The problem, of course, is that we live in a world filled with unsaved, self-serving people who - ultimately know nothing whatsoever about what “fairness” truly is!
  • What so many people have in mind as fairness today is a self-serving, self-centered, “as long as I get mine” kind of doctrine that bears no resemblance to the kind of FAIR that God is. 
  • Thus they have no concept about exercising TRUE fairness in the world.
  • To them, at least most of them Fairness is the “the quality of making judgments that are free from discrimination.
  • Judges, umpires, and teachers should all strive to practice fairness.
  • Fairness comes from the Old English fæger, meaning "pleasing, attractive."
  • That idea is at least a part of the problem that our society faces when thinking about how we, as believers must exercise fairness.
  • This makes sense given that the word is also used to describe physical beauty.
A.    Everything has to be fair
  • We see the worldly idea is things like politics and sports.
  • To oppose fairness is like opposing goodness and rightness itself, many Americans say.
  • Money is made, contracts are negotiated and government legislation is approved, while using the “fairness argument”.
  • Teachers complain that it’s not fair for some children to live in the poor side of town, while others live in the rich side of town.
  • Others cite equal pay for equal work as fair.
  • The federal government has created new laws that require employers to pay a minimum wage due to their views of fairness.
  • However, closer examination of man’s ideas of fairness reveals a deceptive, destructive attack on the biblical views of justice and mercy.
