Proverbs 22:4

King James Version

4 By humility and the fear of the Lord 

are riches, and honour, and life.

Why should we respect the rights of others?

What happens if we don't?

Before we even think of squelching the rights of others, let's think upon these things:

Matthew 13:41-43

King James Version

41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, 

and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, 

and them which do iniquity;

42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: 

there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun 

in the kingdom of their Father. 

Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Matthew 25:40

King James Version

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Inasmuch as ye have done it unto 

one of the least of these my brethren, 

ye have done it unto me.

Acts 17:30-31

King James Version

30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; 

but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

31 Because he hath appointed a day, 

in the which he will judge the world in righteousness 

by that man whom he hath ordained; 

whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, 

in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 11:25

King James Version

25 For I would not, brethren, 

that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, 

lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; 

that blindness in part is happened to Israel, 

until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

2 Corinthians 5:10

King James Version

10 For we must all appear 

before the judgment seat of Christ; 

that every one may receive the things done in his body, 

according to that he hath done, 

whether it be good or bad.

Galatians 3:11

King James Version

11 But that no man is justified 

by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: 

for, The just shall live by faith.

Galatians 3:13

King James Version

13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, 

being made a curse for us: 

for it is written, Cursed is every one 

that hangeth on a tree:

Galatians 3:22

King James Version

22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, 

that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ 

might be given to them that believe.

Galatians 3:24-25

King James Version

24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster 

to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

25 But after that faith is come, 

we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

Galatians 3:26-29

King James Version

26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ 

have put on Christ.

28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, 

there is neither bond nor free, 

there is neither male nor female: 

for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, 

and heirs according to the promise.

The Bible is replete with examples of GOD's love, and man's hatred.

Of GOD's mercy, and man's rebellion.

Of JESUS' obedience, and man's disobedience.

What would it take for us to really, really love?

Only by being born again, through JESUS, and SPIRIT.

That's the only way we can begin to respect other people's rights.

It will wake us up, to the core, knowing GOD's laws.

SPIRIT will remind us what JESUS taught.

As such, we need to be born again.

That we may understand SPIRIT's ways.

JESUS commands we be born again:

John 3:5-8

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, 

and thou hearest the sound thereof, 

but canst not tell whence it cometh, 

and whither it goeth: 

so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Now, we come to the RIGHTS of MAN.
