|Luke 17:10; Matt. 16:25|
Life, Liberty and Property
|The Bible nowhere speaks of "rights."
Nobody has a "right to life."
The Bible says each of us deserves death.
Nevertheless, the Bible forbids us from killing each other.
The Bible also says each of us has a duty not to steal or kidnap.
When people dutifully obey God's Law, Life, Liberty, and Property are secure.
The United States Supreme Court has ruled that it is "unconstitutional" to teach children in public schools that they have duties from God.
Kiss your "rights" goodbye.
It's that simple.
|Now that the concept of a duty to God has been eliminated by
the Supreme Court, what kind of "rights" can we expect?
According to the Supreme Court, a woman has the "right" to kill her unborn children.
Intense pressure has been mounted to declare that each of us have "a right to die."
You can be sure your "rights" will be protected.
Non-Christian governments are responsible for the murder of nearly half a billion people in this century alone.
Nearly 10,000 people per hour have their "right to die" exercised for them. Secular Humanists would like to add an additional 15,000 deaths per hour.
Get the picture?
The Myth of Rights
It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor . . . .
George Washington, 1789
[T]he happiness of a people and the good order and preservation of civil government essentially depend upon piety, religion, and morality * * * * Religion, morality, and knowledge [are] necessary to good government, the preservation of liberty, and the happiness of mankind. . . .
United States Supreme Court, 1892
Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled
either by a power within them or by a power without them.;
either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man;
either by the Bible or by the bayonet
Robert Winthrop, U.S. Speaker of the House, 1849
