The doctrine of "rights" is a pretext for Unforgiveness, Hatred, Envy, Strife, Conflict, Division and War

Many in the modern western Church think that the doctrine of "rights" is a legitimate one. One of the most common responses they make in response to the claim that there is not such thing as a right is that rights are needed to claim justice. Rights, they argue are a means of protecting people against oppression. This seems like a very convincing, wholesome statement. However, it is not. 

In fact, it is an extremely selfish statement. Instead of giving up one's self as Jesus has called His followers (Matthew 16:24; Mark 8:34; Luke 14:27), it seeks to attach the self to seeking justice for oneself, under the pretext of seeking to seek justice for others. Even if one did not seek to attach self to seeking justice for others under such a devious, cunning pretext, it is not that any oppressed person has any rights at all, whatsoever. While the follower of Christ has an obligation to plead the cause of the needy and oppressed (Psalm 82:3; Isaiah 1:17; Proverbs 31:9) , it is not ever on the grounds that the genuinely oppressed person has a "right" as no one deserves anything at all, not even the right to exist. 

To claim that depriving a person of his or her "rights" is a legitimate grounds for fighting for justice is a compromise with evil. The doctrine of "rights" itself is fleshly, carnal, earthly, worldly and demonic. It is a doctrine of demons from the pit of Hell! It is an "enlightenment era" doctrine, which was promoted in the 16th and 17th centuries as a backlash against the Church. The western Christian may argue that even though it is a secular humanist doctrine, spoken of by secular humanists, it does not mean it is a evil idea. 

While the pagan may indeed speak some truth, however, any ideas which the spiritually dead God-hater has regarding the moral and spiritual is always, not probably, or most likely, but always be of the flesh, worldly and demonic (James 3:13-17).  The philosophy of rights is indeed that which concerns the moral and spiritual as it seeks to understand the human heart, what is right and wrong, and what it is that leads people to believe in regarding moral right and wrong. It is not of God. Therefore, since it is not of God, it is earthly, worldly, and demonic. The doctrine of "rights" is a doctrine of demons from the pit of Hell! 

The whole western discourse on "rights" is of the spirit of mammon which feeds on the fleshy desire to seek first one's own self, including one's own selfish quest for justice to be done for oneself, rather than to see justice on the basis that injustice offends God.  This is just the typical worthless junk that the modern west has churned out of its manifold wickedness. Yet, the Church has swallowed the blasphemous heresy of "rights", which itself, in no matter what context, is to elevate the material above the spiritual, receiving above giving, what one can legitimately do above  what one should out of love for others and for God, and most arrogantly of all, humanity above God. This is the true face of the philosophy of "rights".

The doctrine of "rights" in elevating receiving above giving, and what one can legitimately do above what one should do, is that which is legalistic at its core, and manifests it an individual only seeking to gain, and never forgiving any losses. It is a vile, abominable doctrine. It is a legalistic one, insisting on what it can do according to a morally, having no regard for what is love. 

The doctrine of "rights" is a legalistic, loveless doctrine - a doctrine of demons which the flesh loves, pandering to it, and rendering it blind. The question is not what one can do morally, but whether what one does is out of selfless love. To ask only what one can do morally, or should do morally without breaking any moral or ethical law and principles, is not only to not love, but to reject love, for it is to seek only what one can do, rather to seek to serve God and others, by giving one whole self. 

Acting morally in the case of the Christian is only a mere manifestation of the love of God in oneself, not love itself, nor righteousness. Acting morally is just merely the acts of doing certain things or not doing certain things, just as a citizen of a nation does certain things or refrain from such because the law of the nation demands so.

Many in the demonic west think that legalism is only a conservative characteristic, one that only Christians possess. No! Legalism is of the human heart itself which seeks only its own interests, and also happy to support that of others, as long as its own interests in not interfered with. Anyone who wants to accuse the Christian of being legalistic, but yet claim to believe in "rights" must look at himself, and ask himself whether he is willing to accept that he should give up his "rights" and "interests", but rather act in a kind, loving manner, not  just merely "respectful" towards others, but one that is truly in the manner of selfless love. If not, he should just shut him mouth, and be shamed for his hypocrisy. 

Since the doctrine of "rights" is one in its spirit and at its core by its very essence, holds onto what one can legitimately do or receive, rather than seek to love and forgive, it is is a pretext for unforgiveness, hatred, envy, strife, conflict, division and war. It is precisely because people believe in their "rights" that there is all the unforgiveness, and the justification for unforgiveness in the world. 

Such a belief in "rights" is manifested all kinds of conflict, division, strife, envy, selfish ambition and war. It manifests in complaints against the actions of others that make one feel personally offended, arguments over worthless earthly things, disagreements over the Truth about the Word of God, which is responsible for the rise of different denominations and fear of lack of earthly, temporal privileges compared to others.

Many will go to Hell. Many of these people will go to Hell on the basis of believing in the doctrine of "rights", many of whom would be human "rights" campaigners, or anyone who campaigns for any kind of "rights". 

The Bible contained many exhortations to plead the cause of the needy and oppressed:

Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow (Isaiah 1:17);

The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it (Proverbs 29:7);
 


Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy (Proverbs 31:8-9); and

Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy (Psalm 82:3). 

Do any of these verses speak about "rights"? No.

You may say that in some translations, the modern ones that is, Proverbs 29:7 uses the word "rights" of the poor.  This is a misuse of the word 'right'. The Hebrew word for 'considers' is 'yada' which means to know or understand, as opposed to have no understanding of the plight of the poor. Proverbs 29:7 does in no way imply that the poor are entitled to any riches or basic earthly needs. This is an misinterpretation, ripe for the heresy of the suffering "gospel", or social "gospel".  Rather, it is that the poor are treated unjustly that the righteous have regard for their need for righteousness is shown by genuinely helping the poor.

In fact, it is Bible verses which command the believer to help the poor that have been interpreted as such that have given rise to various forms of the suffering "gospel" or social "gospel"; that the needy and oppressed have "rights", all hardships they face are entirely because of all the things that others do, and that whenever such people do evil, it is not because of their wicked human heart (Jeremiah 17:9), but because of others. This sounds much like marxism. Indeed, marxism strongly influenced liberation theology, in which the the social "gospel" and suffering "gospel" were the key doctrines.

It is absolutely true that the Christian must help the poor, needy and oppressed for  "whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?" (1 John 3:17). However, the true sound Biblical basis for seeking to help the poor, needy and oppressed is not because they have "rights" for they also deserve the eternal Damnation in Hell as much as all others, whether rich or poor.

The doctrine of "rights" needs to be rooted out, eradicated, cast away and burnt. It is a false doctrine which causes the fruit of good sound doctrine to be tainted, and die as rotten fruit. The spirit of mammon is the spirit behind the doctrine of "rights", by feeding on the desire of the flesh to hold onto the Moral Law of God which all people know, to seek their own interests, to satisfy the flesh. Thus, it provides a justification for unforgiveness, hatred, envy, strife, conflict, division and war
