The Belief in "Rights" Itself for any Human being is the manifestation of Disobedience to God, and the Usurption of His Dominion, Authority and Sovereignty

Many in the modern western Church are unstable and ignorant people who twist the Scriptures to their own destruction (2 Peter 3:16). How do I know? From all the doctrines and arguments that people in the modern western Church make which result in theology does not glorify God. This is all the manifestation of rebellion against God. Such is the manifested in the belief in "rights" for any human being.

We are such good respecters of persons. We tend to be excuse the sin of those who we think are 'good', simply because of our high regard for them, and as a hard as a stone towards people who are bad, and who may well be truly evil, and diabolical. However, our hatred for such people is usually out of a fleshly, worldly and earthly disregard for such people. God is not like us. He is no respecter of persons (Romans 2:11; Acts 10:34).

It is from this human respect for persons, as opposed to true justice which can only come from God, that the belief in "rights" manifests.  Why? The belief in "rights" itself regards humans as being entitled to what we want, whether it be high living standards, earthly justice, earthly opportunities, and respect from others.

As a mere human being, you have no "rights" in the true sense, that is, according to the Word of God:

What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels,[a]
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

(Psalm 8:4-8).

It is only by God's grace, undeserved favour, that you and I can even exist. For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen (Romans 11:36). 

This is also made clear in other passages:

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him
(Colossians 1:16).

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made (John 1:3).

God is the one who has dominion over all things on the earth, including your very life itself. Not you, despite what you may think. So, to even think you have "rights" is itself the height of all arrogance. In even thinking you have rights, you kick God of His Throne. That is what you are doing. 

You may argue that belief in "rights" is compatible with obedience to God because God created us and gave us "rights". No! The idea of "rights" itself is to assume that one is entitled to what one wants or one's needs. 

While God did create and love each human being, He created us to enjoy Him. Enjoying God comes only from obedience to God. You may ask, doesn't  God give us the right to enjoy Him? No, it is not a "right". It is a privilege He gave to mankind, for which He gives us freewill to choose whether to enjoy Him. It is not a "right" to enjoy God or rebel against God. It is God's Sovereign right to create us, not our "right" to tell God what He should do, or not do. God's dominion over man is demonstrated in Genesis 1:26-28:

 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

God's dominion is demonstrated by making man in 'our image, after our likeness' referring to the Trinity. His command to man, created male and female in Genesis 1:28 indicates God's dominion over man.

It is because of belief in "rights" for human that much of the theology in the modern Church in the west is unbiblical, resulting in unstable and ignorant thinking. Such unstable and ignorant thinking is all the manifestation of believing that one can believe what one wants to believe, that is one has a "right" to believe as one chooses, and therefore that one does not need to submit to God.  

Such is the way of the rebellious and unsubmissive.

Signs of a Person under the spirit of mammon

Both the unsaved and saved can be under the spirit of mammon. Do not be deceived! An unsaved person can only serve mammon because it is not part of his nature to submit to God in any way (Romans 8:7). However, the Christian can most definitely yield to the temptations of mammon just as he can yield to the temptations of satan. This is what is means for a Christian to be under the spirit of mammon.

The signs of a person being under the spirit of mammon are:

The person does not understand the spirit of mammon. This is because he or she is blinded by it and therefore cannot see it.The person reacts whenever being confronted with being told that they are under the spirit of mammon, or being told that they may be under it. This is not the person themselves reacting, but the spirit of mammon reacting.The person is self-satisfied with the abundance that they have. This is especially the case with many Christians today. They are happy with having a family, a well-paying job, security, romance a…

Two types of contentment

The world seeks contentment. It seeks to be contented in pursuit of all kinds of things, whether it be money, health, wealth, romance, sex, careers or family. It does not necessarily seek after riches to be content. However, that one does not seek after money as the first priority, but other things that are typically associated with good traditional values, such as family, does not in any way mean that one is content in the godly sense. By no means! A person can be a "conservative" and "religious" but just as earthly as the "liberal".

There are two types of contentment: earthly contentment and godly contentment. Earthly contentment finds its fulfillment and satisfaction in things that are passing away, not necessarily money, but also things like family, education and children. Yes, that's right. Many professing American Christians think that they could never be under the spirit of mammon because they care for their families and love their families, as …

The spirit of Mammon seeks to Steal, Kill and Destroy, by Deception and Murder

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10).

The thief in John 10:10 Jesus was referring to was the devil. His minions are no different. They also seek to steal, kill and destroy. Just like the devil, they use lies to murder. How? One may ask. Are not lies and murder from the human heart, rather than a evil spirit, those of you think that anything that the Bible does not explicitly talk about cannot be true may ask, who are so hostile against the doctrine that there is a such thing as a spirit of mammon?

It is true that out of the human heart comes lies and murder (Matthew 15:19). However, this does not mean that there is no such thing as evil spirit which seek to tempt people into lies and murder. Anyone who thinks that there are no such things as evil spirits which people into sin, and blinds them to sin is naive and foolish. 

Those of you who think you are so theolog…
