If All Are Equal Then Everyone’s Right, Right? Not So Fast!

Posted on Updated on

Here is something hard to believe, so many people so quick to defend their right to whatever, with that whatever being anything from a gender disparity, to a selfishly motivated manner of societal destruction. I know I said hard to believe, but not that hard, as it is an everyday occurrence where we have those on one side trying to make their rights the thing at hand, and the ones on the other side trying to make theirs as equally or more so. And yet the issue should not be about who is right or has the right, but more about the idea of what is right, or maybe we could say what is most right, and who, or what, is or is not aligned to that.

This simple idea seems to have gotten lost in the proverbial onslaught of any debatable ideological thought, especially when there are those that think that no historical or societal point of reference exists, or is to be allowed. The term equal has within it a certain sense of positional balance, as to mean not too much one way or the other, so when the term equal rights are brought into the picture why is it that one’s rights are not always equal to the others. I mean if you are going to fill a bucket with one gallon of water, how do you know when its the right amount? You either measure what’s going on from the bucket side of it, or you measure what’s going out from the pouring process, as there has to be a point of reference.

So I suggest one take a look at what scripture has to say about this issue, as it just might make more sense than the currently debatable ideology being spewed everywhere, especially from those on the liberal side. Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Nothing in this verse suggests that males or females would be unequal in their created forms sexually, but it is a known fact that they do not equally fulfill their sexuality. So we can say there is or are equal rights to be invoked here but what are they, and is there any point of reference to gauge or measure such things being right!

One could say that every female has the right to be just that, a female, which is inclusive of every aspect of life pertaining to it, and just as well one can say that the male has equal rights in the same perspective in being the male. But what if we now say that the female has the right to be the male or vice versa, how or what is going to be the set point that she or he will be gauged by in order to determine that they have successfully measured up to that right. Well first off each of us is born one or the other physically and biologically, however, there may be confusion as to whether or not the individual’s perception or acceptance of what they are, is consciously understood.

This is where the problem lies in all this, it is the fact that in today’s society each one is being encouraged to think as they want without regard to whether or not such thinking is actually right. Yet as long as there’s been human beings on this planet archeological evidence indicates that there has been some sort of method to the madness, so to speak whether culturally, or through some social interaction, or in some religious manner. There has been something that is at the center point of what they do or think and in the case of right-thinking associated with biblical scripture those who believe the word of God is truth can see what God mentions concerning doing what is right as opposed to what one thinks may be right. Proverbs 16:25 (GW) There is a way that seems right to a person, but eventually it ends in death. The point made here is that sometimes what one thinks seems right, could end up in their being dead. How true is that!

Look I have the right to jump off of a three-story building with no means to protect myself if I think it seems right. But what if past results reveal that those who have already done so ended up dead or permanently maimed, would I be doing the right thing simply because I think its right? The added aspect here is that there are in today’s society individuals who would vehemently defend my right to do so, even encouraging me to jump knowing what the results would be. Such thinking is promoted by one having no consciousness toward right or wrong, and thus having no intent on taking any responsibility for their part in it.

Where does such mindedness come from, well for those who have a biblically formed thinking, it is revealed in scripture that such manner of thinking is generated by first denying God exists. Romans 1:28-32 (MSG) Since they didn’t bother to acknowledge God, God quit bothering them and let them run loose. And then all hell broke loose: rampant evil, grabbing and grasping, vicious backstabbing. They made life hell on earth with their envy, wanton killing, bickering, and cheating. Look at them: mean-spirited, venomous, fork-tongued God-bashers. Bullies, swaggerers, insufferable windbags! They keep inventing new ways of wrecking lives. They ditch their parents when they get in the way. Stupid, slimy, cruel, cold-blooded. And it’s not as if they don’t know better. They know perfectly well they’re spitting in God’s face. And they don’t care—worse, they hand out prizes to those who do the worst things best! 

No one has to believe that there is a God, as it is each one’s right to do so, or not, and God respects that right and will not force anyone to do so. But when there is no acceptance of a higher manner of life that would reveal more right than wrong, then one tends to even think that evil is right. I suggest you take a look at the above scriptures very carefully to reflect on whether or not you may be participating in a mindedness that deems what’s right is my right to do as I want no matter any responsibility.
