YOU HAVE NO “RIGHTS”!

First, a few transparent statements:

  1. I have yet to get the vaccine; at this point I doubt I will (and I definitely will not until my recently diagnosed DVD (bloodclot) evaporates)
  2. If you get the vaccine, cool with me. If you elect not to get the vaccine, cool with me.
  3. There is no “Christian” answer to the question about vaccines. If you try to tell me that every Christian must get the shot; or every Christian must not get the shot I will lose interest in anything you have to say.
  4. Ditto masks.

That being said, or rather typed, if you are one who is vehemently against the vaccine; that is all good; whether I agree or disagree.

What is not good is if you shout lots of words about “my rights!”

If you are a follower of Christ, you have no rights.

You are a bondservant (slave) of Jesus Christ.

What “rights” does a slave have?

Zero.

America is not now nor has she (is that offensive? get over it…) ever been a “Christian” nation. The Constitution and Bill of Rights are not inspired by God.

Yes, you have a right to your opinion. Yes, you have a right to express your opinion (at least so far).

But I caution you not to say or type, “It’s my right as an American to refuse…”

Because, again, you have no rights.

Period.

End of sentence.

Nothing follows.

The vehement, adamant screamers about either side of the issues remind me of a Petra classic:

Author: Jack Hager

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."

  1. Interesting post.
    A seminar attended many years ago spoke of Christians surrendering rights. Would we not have to have
    rights to surrender them?
    Spiritual warfare is ongoing.
    Let’s focus on Jesus and His soon return. Let’s review 1 Corn 13 and the greatest of these is love.

    1. The only thing I know for certain about Jesus’ return is He is coming for me. He won’t be early, nor late. Pre/post/mid/don’t give a trib is of little importance to me My desire is to live that I won’t be ashamed at His coming..eschatology is not a crucial factor of faith; meaning I won’t die on that mountain. We are to present out bodies as living sacrifices. We are slaves. We have a Lord. I still maintain we have no rights; and that, as in many things, off-balance “patriotism” is not a good thing.

  2. Finally, someone interprets “Bondslave” as Slave which is the only correct one. Thank you. It makes a huge difference.
