Mima I. V. Justice in law as a form of manifestation of Christian normative values

The process of development of various directions of objective scientific analysis of the problems of the theory of state and law is studied; the analysis of transformational processes of Christian-legal traditions in the legal system is carried out. The author argues that the Christian-normative values of Christian traditions are unique religious and social values, as they embody the fundamental principles of civilized organization of social relations in society, their normative requirements. The implementation of Christian normative traditions, principles, values through justice in law contributes to the understanding of law as a means of achieving social stability in public life, embodying the idea of justice in the mechanism of legal regulation of social relationships.

The author notes that in modern society, justice, which contains Christian normative traditions determines the unconditional authority of law not only in regulating social relationships, but also in the formation of man as an person, because it contains Christian fundamental values that determine the humanistic nature of law in the practical aspect of regulation public relations. Due to the law, the idea of justice finds its normative manifestation, is protected by the rights and interests of citizens. Without losing touch with morality, religion, justice is a value-moral, spiritual criterion in the process of creating and implementing legal norms. By integrating the notion of justice into the legal system, the socio-moral (spiritual) value of the legal system itself increases. Legal norms promote the spread of justice in society as a basis and value-moral (spiritual) criterion for reconciling the interests of the subjects of social relations. As a universal category, justice includes both the moral (spiritual) aspect (serves as a criterion for evaluating law, as well as the principle and ideal of law) and legal (contains ethical and legal aspects and is a common law principle).

The point of view is substantiated that Christian-normative values on the basis of connection, interaction, are the basis of convergence of justice and law. After all, the social nature of Christian-normative values in the legal nature of justice explains justice as an idea, absolute, requirement, determines the law in its natural sense. Christian-normative values as a source of justice and natural law, embrace human consciousness, determining the development of legal sense. In addition, justice, which is the basis of many legal phenomena, is in the process of influencing public relations as a special regulator of public relations. Thus, justice formed on the basis of Christian normative principles is an ideal for law. Based on Christian values, justice is important not only as a symbol of good social status, but also as a real goal-setting means of society. That is, it is appropriate to consider justice as a semantic component of the value-oriented and normative-regulatory social system.

Key words: justice, legal system, Christian-legaltraditions, Christian values, legal culture, legal consciousness, morality.
