No Moral Absolutes Means No Human Rights

We have the truth that human rights activists are everywhere who reject the truth that there are moral absolutes. Many of them have their idea of "Judge not and you will not be judged." As for the atheistic human activists, they tend to carry out Richard Dawkins' quote from the River Out of Eden which says that there's no good, no evil but only pitiless indifference. They think that there are no such thing as moral absolutes. So if they believe that there are no moral absolutes then why are they fighting for human rights which requires moral absolutes to determine them? After all, Dawkins just said there is no purpose but only pitiless indifference.

Here's another problem with atheists' appeal to human rights. Why do they appeal to human rights when they claim that there are no moral absolutes and morality is relative? Human rights are determined by moral absolutes that God made. When God made His Ten Commandments and gave the whole Law - He made it as the standard for right and wrong. God's Law was made for our protection. God isn't cruel when He gave His Ten Commandments. He made it so we can enjoy life and if our right to life is violated then we have a standard to demand for justice. The right not to be punished beyond one's offense (eye for eye, tooth for tooth) and the right to a just and fair trial are all rooted upon moral absolutes.

If there were no moral absolutes then what's the standard for determining human rights? It would just end up in altruism and/or appealing to morals only when it's convenient. If there were no moral absolutes then think of this scenario. Let's say that somebody parks in a no parking area and it causes traffic. If there were no moral absolutes or morality is relative then the traffic enforcer has no right to ask the person to move the car away. Why should the offender move his car away or pay the traffic enforcement agency the fine for illegal parking if morality is relative? If you demand respect for relativism then it goes nowhere. For the offender what he did was right and for the traffic enforcer what the offender did was wrong. If we are to respect both opposing views then nobody is right.

So how does having moral absolutes solve the situation? Having moral absolutes dictates both freedoms and restrictions. It tells you what you can do if you want to while giving you a list of don't do this and don't do that. There is nothing wrong with parking one's car but you should park it in a designated area. If we had the moral absolute over moral relativism then the problem is solved. The traffic enforcer operates according to moral absolutes. The offender can't argue his way out of parking his car in the wrong spot because moral absolutes says he should park his car only in parking areas. There's no respect everyone's views there without restraint. The problem can only be remedied when the offender decides to pay the fine to get his car released by the traffic enforcement agency. The offender must realize he's violating other people's right to use the road by parking in a no parking area as well as putting his own safety in jeopardy. Either the offender gives in to the demands or moral absolutes or he can say goodbye to his car.

So how do moral absolutes also provide your human rights in society? Let's get over the Ten Commandments and put them in a civil context. Let's talk about the last six commandments that prohibit murder, stealing, adultery, bearing false witness and coveting. If these rules were nonexistent then you have lost your right to live in a safe place or to complain when you're a victim. If you say there are no moral absolutes then all forms of crime should be legalized. That means you might as well yourself to be murdered or never get justice for any murder victim. You can't complain when somebody steals from you and you can kiss all your money goodbye. You can't complain when your spouse cheats on you and you might as well be friends with the third party. You lose the right to complain when somebody slanders you or even lies in court about you so don't even expect to have any right to sue anyone for libel or perjury. You can't complain if somebody acts on their covetousness to do their sin. Think of how much is lost when there are no moral absolutes.

But thank God for His Law for the people. I can be thankful that God has provided a law against sin. Without it, I wouldn't even know that I'm a sinner. God's Law keeps society safe. With moral absolutes there will be rules to keep society in order. I would feel safe in a society where I can't get away with sin. If I live in a society where I can get away with crime then I can only expect to be lose my right to complain when my rights are violated. God's Law is not a cause of sorrow but joy because it keeps me safe and sound. Unfortunately, most people only want to appeal to moral absolutes only when it's deemed convenient for them.

Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child So Don't Get Surprised Why the Child Doesn't Grow Up Right

Try listening to this video and you may notice a couple of stuff that really show what's wrong with the typical family today. Take a look at what the parents are saying and you may find out why their son is turning out to be a horrible brat. They said that they've never spanked him as a child. He's had his way all his life. Doesn't that tell you that their rebellious son was spoiled all his life? He's not even ready to hear the word no. By not giving him the badly needed dose of Vitamin No when he was a child then the parents are reaping what they sow.

The problem is calling the father an "excellent" father. How can he be an excellent father when he spared the rod? You say you don't punish your child because you love your child. The Bible says in Proverbs 13:14 that true love requires discipline. You can always have discipline without love but never love without discipline. The father in this video admits that his son is not ready to hear the word no.…

Using Santa Claus to Remind People to Keep Christ in Christmas is Pure Hypocrisy

This has got to be one of the biggest hypocrisies I've ever seen. Okay, it's already past December 6, 2017 (which is the traditional feast day of St. Nicholas for Roman Catholics) but I still can't help but get mad at this video. EWTN or Eternal Word Television Network even dares to use Santa Claus to remind us to keep Christ in Christmas. That idea is baloney since parents continue to lie to their children about Santa Claus giving them what they want during Christmas... only if they were good the whole year round. 
Here's Pastor Todd Friel of Wretched as he discusses about what's wrong with Santa Claus. I really listened to this video and I realize why I get mad whenever parents lie about Santa Claus. I was lied to about Santa Claus when I was still a child and I wonder what else have adults lied to me about. No, there's no Santa Claus. It should sicken me how Santa Claus is more popular to the world than Jesus Christ. When John Lennon said they became more p…

The Foolishness of Waiting for Christ's Return Without Preaching the Gospel to the Lost

It's no secret that the world is in terrible times and chances are they're not going to get better. The world is now a huge insane den of iniquity. Signs of the times have shown up such as the rampant immorality growing left and right.
2 Timothy 3:1-7 - This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Peter 3:3-4 - Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffer…

Was Mary the Earthly Mother of Jesus Born Without Sin?

It would be best to discuss about since today is the Roman Catholic feast of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Roman Catholics insist that Mary was supposedly born without sin and the argument goes that if Mary were a sinner then why was Jesus sinless. That is a good question to ask and it would be good to provide some answers based on the Bible.

Luke 1:28 is frequently used to defend the stand on the doctrine of Mary's immaculate conception. The verse has the angel calling out to Mary with the words, "Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the LORD is with thee: blessed art thou among women." But there is a problem with that one. Grace is not given to those who do not need it but towards sinners. There is a failure to take things and read things in context. If Mary was ever conceived without sin then notice verse 29 has her trembling at the angel Gabriel's message. Mary already knew she was a sinner as evidenced in verse 47 with her conversation with Elizabeth.…

What's Wrong with the Ang Dating Daan Movement?

The Ang Dating Daan movement is by the Members Church of God International spearheaded by its pastor (and so-called "prophet") Eliseo Soriano.  While claiming to be an expositor of the Scriptures with his "Itanong Mo Kay Soriano" or "Ask Soriano" In English, this religious group actually isn't Christian as some of the ignorant would want to believe.  Though the group claims the Bible is their only authority (as some cults do) but the problem is that they believe only Eli Soriano may interpret the Scriptures.  This is utter heresy!  Not even a great man in the Scriptures, Charles Spurgeon ever made such a preposterous claim!  This is no better than the "true church" movement by Darwin Fish which is exposed by Pastor Phil Johnson as a heretical movement.  In fact, I'm not going to waste my time debating with ADD members, they are a total waste of my time as every other debate.
Unlike John F. Macarthur of Grace to You that actually encoura…

It's Sickening How Parents Love to Lie About Santa Claus While Wondering Why Their Children Lie to Them

It's really sickening how parents these days will always try to justify the Santa Claus lie isn't it? If you think about it, it's very common to lie during Christmas. What's even worse is that you have parents who lie about Santa Claus and say, "If you lie to me, I'll tell Santa Claus you lied to me and you're not getting any gifts!" Then come Christmas morning and the child discovers that Santa Claus isn't real.

The problem of lying about Santa Claus while teaching your child not to lie is basically follow what I say but not what I do. It's a bad case of double standard. Let's see what the Bible says about the problem of double standard:
Matthew 23:3 - All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that obseve and do, but do not ye after their works; for they say and do not. Romans 2:21-22 - Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? Thou that preachest a man should not steal dost thou steal? Thou sayest that a man …

What Does Pisseth Against the Wall Mean?

It's really getting bad for some of my Independent Fundamental Baptist brethren to actually even take the words "pisseth against the wall" which appears at least six times in 1 Samuel 23:22, 1 Samuel 25:34, 1 Kings 14:10, 1 Kings 16:11, 1 Kings 21:21 and 2 Kings 9:8 where the King James actually has the words "pisseth against the wall".  Now I am a King James only-ist but I do not support the stupid interpretation of "pisseth against the wall" by some IFB preachers who have become in some way similar to the Catholic Faith Defenders that they argue against when they should spend their time soulwinning.  Actually I even heard that rather outrageous "pisseth against the wall" sermon by Steven Anderson that was so taken out of context.
So what does pisseth against the wall mean? Let us take a look at these six verses and take it on a exegetic view NOT an eisegetic (out of context) view:
1 Samuel 23:22- "And so more also do God unto the ene…

Santa Claus Parenting is NOT a Substitute For the Fear of the LORD Parenting

Christmas is just around the corner and I pray to God that this article will continue to offend those politically correct parents who think lying about Santa Claus is just harmless fun. How does the Bible tell us to parent our children? Proverbs 22:6 says, "Train up the child the way he should go, when he is old, he will not depart from it." So where does Santa Claus parenting fit in that one? There's no place for Santa Claus parenting for this reason. Santa Claus is only meant to believed when you are a child but the Lord Jesus is meant to be believed from childhood to the grave.

So what's the difference between Santa Claus parenting and the fear of the LORD parenting? The difference isn't only with the truth that Santa Claus isn't real and Jesus Christ is real. The reason of parents lying about Santa Claus and parents who tell the truth about Jesus Christ is very different. One only wants their children to do good while the other talks about the natural sin…

The Horrors of the Horrid Family: The Herods and Inbreeding

So here is the family tree of the Herods which I would say is not a happy family.  One can think about the incest and intrigue of this family or the whispers of the world "incestuous" about them considering these events that had transpired in the family tree to the point it's best to call them the Horrids or the Horrors whatever name will fit them better:
1.) Herodias (or Horridias as I want to call her) is the daughter of Aristobulus a much older son of Herod the Great by Mariamne I was married to her half-uncle, Herod Philip I and had a freak daughter named Salome.  Salome wouldn't be a normal child either considering she was born of incest between half-uncle and half-niece.  So she was both granddaughter and great-granddaughter to the wicked Herod the Great.  I guess Salome was a retard too though she did live long enough.  Note also that Herodias was the sister of Herod Agrippa I who was later eaten of worms as the throne was later lost out of her greed.  Also H…

Difference Between A "Good Person" (By Worldly Standards) and a Righteous Person

Romans 5:7-8 says, "For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  So where is the difference between a "good person" and a righteous person?  There is God's measuring stick vs. man's measuring stick.  Being a "good person" is when a person is compared to the others.  Let's say they compare "Mr. Nice Guy" with the likes of corrupt politicians.  To worldly standards he is a "good person" because he tries to do what is right (by his own flesh).  They are only good according to the worldly standards.  Many may be better than the other like for example, Mr. Nice Guy may treat everybody well.  However here's the real issue with God there is NO such thing as a good person as Romans 3:12 says, "There is NONE that doeth good, no not one." which goes together wit…
