Sounding the Alarm about ‘Just Faith Ministries’

Infiltration of the Catholic Church by socialist-Marxists . . .

JUST TROUBLE — If your Catholic parish offers a series of programs known as Just Faith, stay away!

Just Faith Exposed!

The November 2011 Mindzenty ReportBlowin’ in the Wind:  Just Faith and the Socialist Indoctrination of the Church .  It traces the roots of today’s social gospel with the Progressive Movement and Fabian Socialism.  Also, it examines the fast-growing JustFaith organization, its founder Jack Jezreel, its ties with the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, its partnership with left-wing groups and its Alinsky-like disruptive tactics.


Despite its growing popularity, JustFaith has unleashed a
legion of critics who point out that Jezreel’s program is
nothing but a platform for an ultra left wing social,
political, and economic agenda that is NOT consistent with
traditional Catholic social teaching. The trouble with the
JustFaith Ministries is that it is not about either justice or faith
but about power. As Walter Rauschenbusch said in the late 19th
century, religion is just a means to get, not justice but socialism,
which is a demonic attempt to corral the world’s masses into a
single unit that will be forced to march to its secular drummer.
JustFaith reduces Catholicism to an unofficial set of economic

  1. I hate secularization. Evangelism and the preaching of the gospel come first; other things come second. Mother Teresa said she did all that she did to make Christ known, as did all the saints. Overemphasizing social justice to where it becomes good works just for the sake of good works is not the gospel. I gave quite generously and did good works before I was a Christian, but did not know Christ, and was “dead in my trespasses and sins.” If the “legion of critics” mentioned above are right in their judgment about this program, then parishes need to replace it with something that has the right balance and focus, such as the Apostles expressed in Acts 6 – “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables.” First things first – everything else flows from that focus.

    1. Catholic Culture gives a “Danger” rating to Just Faith’s website. More links there, too.

      “This organization is purportedly dedicated to justice, but a glaring omission from its website and newsletter is any mention of the injustice of abortion. Mother Teresa often said that the primary injustice is the taking of innocent, unborn life: “The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child — a direct killing of the innocent child — murder by the mother herself.”
