The doctrine of "rights" and the spirit of legalism

Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth (1 Corinthians 10:24). 

Many people, both unsaved and saved, think that the liberal doctrine of "rights" is a very tolerant one, which does not insist on merely keeping and adhering to rules. Nothing could be further from the truth. The spirit of liberalism is the the spirit behind the doctrine of "rights" is one that insist of its Legal Rights, in the spiritual realm. This explains why those who are under the spirit of liberalism are always insisting that their "rights", such as "rights" to child-murder or homosexual "marriage" be legalised, and are not satisfied until they are. They are not satisfied with people being passive about such sins, but cannot rest until their sins have been made an enshrined "right" according to the law of the nation.

The doctrine of "rights" is itself a legalistic one - one legalistic in the spiritual sense. It is one which insist that what one wants must be obtained, or else, one is not satisfied. Many people cannot see this. Of course, the unsaved cannot see it, but what about the Christians? No, many Christians cannot see how the doctrine of "rights" is a legalistic one in the spiritual sense. Rather, they think it is one of "liberty", that of civil liberty which many Christians simply regard as that which their unbelieving neighbours have a "right" to fight for. 

No, the doctrine of "rights" is one of spiritual bondage. Those who insist of their "rights" which they do not have in the first place are in bondage to the demon who works through those rebellious against God and who insist on their "rights". He blinds them into thinking they have a "sovereign" authority over their lives in deciding what they want. Once he has blinded them into believing they have such "sovereignty" over their "own" lives (which are not our own), he them works through them to make their feel that they have been unjustly treated whenever their perceived "rights" are not enshrined and enforced, whether through cultural, political, social or legal means. This explains why people under the spirit of liberalism are always complaining about their "rights" and "freedoms" being taken away or not enforced enough by their governments.

Such is the spirit of legalism who blinds people into thinking that what is 'right' according to a set of (human-made) standards is that which determines truth, and therefore what one is authorised to do by those standards. Contrary to what many think, legalism goes hand in hand with the demands for one's so-called "rights". He works to blind such people into thinking they are wronged or treated unjustly when their rebellion is not 'enforced' socially, culturally, politically or legally in the laws of the land. This explains why those under the spirit of liberalism think Christians, but not people of other religions, like to "impose" their views on others. 

The spirit of legalism works with the spirit of liberalism to enshrine "rebellion" and call such evil good, and good evil. Their aim is to blind the masses into thinking it is all a matter of human-law, and not God's Law. God's Law reigns over their deceptive arguments about what should be legal and what should not be in the laws of the land. Human law is and can only be informed by these evil spirits in nations where God's Law is not respected, but disdained.
