As Evangelical Christians, We Back the Confirmation of Supreme Court Nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson

The Bible commands all of us–but especially our judges– to “To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”


Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson has proven herself a woman whose life has been defined by service, family, and faith.

Judge Jackson, the first Black woman to be nominated to the Supreme Court, recognizes that she did not get to where she is today on her own. In her opening remarks at her nomination hearing, Judge Jackson said, “I must begin these very brief remarks by thanking God for delivering me to this point in my professional journey. My life has been blessed beyond measure, and I do know that one can only come this far by faith.”


Judge Jackson is a Protestant Christian and was raised in a family with a long-standing history in public service. Her parents were both teachers, while other close family members served in both military and law enforcement. Jackson's family’s enduring public service record shaped her career as a judge believing that all Americans deserve fair treatment and making sure the courts work not only for a privileged few but the most vulnerable.


Judge Jackson is seen as a firm believer in the core American ideals of fairness, justice, and the rule of law. Judge Jackson’s sterling record in public service has earned bipartisan praise of her credentials, character, and wit at the Senate nomination hearing.


Even when facing some of the toughest questions, Judge Jackson sticks to her common-sense Christian values. When Senator Ted Cruz tried to tag Judge Jackson as a supporter of critical race theory, Jackson responded, “Senator, I do not believe that any child should be made to feel as though they are racist or as though they are not valued … that they are victims or they are oppressors.”


Ketanji Brown Jackson is level-headed and compassionate, following the biblical commandment for judges handed down through Leviticus. “You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.” –Leviticus 19:15


That’s why Good Stewards Network is joining leading Evangelicals across the country in urging the U.S. Senate to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court.
