Where are all the footnotes of Biblical Just…

The other day I was watching a youtube video entitled “Biblical Justice vs. Social Justice.” Voddie Baucham was the speaker. And even though I disagree with him on somethings, I respect him, so I decided to watch. The title pulled me in because I don't often hear a clear explanation of Biblical Justice.

She was the first one to introduce the concept of “White Privilege” in a 1988 paper called “White Privilege and Male Privilege: A Personal Account of Coming to See Correspondences Through Work in Women’s Studies.” Voddie made an insightful comment about the author and her paper. After describing some of its contents, he said, “There’s not a single footnote in her paper. There's not one source in her paper. It is purely observational.” This statement was said essentially to make the point that Peggy’s perspective on white privilege is all experience with no facts. “There are no footnotes,” he would go on to say. Ironically, after watching the almost 56-minute presentation, frustrated, I asked myself a question, where are all the footnotes of Biblical Justice?
