What's wrong with human rights?

David Cross

ISBN: 9781852408732
This book maintains that the concept of universal human rights is not in agreement with the Bible. In reality, it is a human-conceived ideology, promoted no doubt by well-meaning people, but it is a concept that exists without divine endorsement. It is therefore very likely that justice systems which prioritise the claiming of human rights, over the acknowledgement of human wrongdoing, will result in much more conflict than peace.
The advocates of inalienable human rights assume that these belong to everyone, simply by virtue of their being born human. In contrast, the Bible is clear in affirming that every person has inalienable value, but God nowhere infers that He has given any rights to humankind, except those that come through a specific covenant relationship with Him. Today’s increasingly fervent belief in the concept of human rights, not least in the area of sexual rights, is, according to this book, justifiably described as a false religion.

About The Author

About The Author

David Cross is Deputy International Director for Ellel Ministries and Regional Director for the Ministry in Western Europe.

He graduated from Nottingham University in 1969 and qualified as a chartered civil engineer, leading to a varied working career, which included building roads and bridges in the Highlands of Scotland and, in the early 1980’s, overseeing the construction of new town development in the New Territories area of Hong Kong. It was here that a huge personal change of direction occurred when he gave his life to Jesus.

Returning to Scotland, David became very active in church life and in leading ski tours in the Cairngorm Mountains. In order to further the Christian healing ministry in the Highlands, as an elder in the Church of Scotland, he and others in the local church made contact with Ellel Ministries in 1991, and two years later David and his wife Denise joined the Ministry at the international headquarters of Ellel Grange, near Lancaster.

David and Denise have three children and eight grandchildren, all giving much joy in the midst of very busy lives. Besides the thrill of sharing God's truth through teaching and writing, David loves walking and photography. His authoritative explanation of God's word has brought understanding and healing to many who have been confused and damaged by the ungodly ideologies of today's world. David has written five other books: Soul-Ties, God’s Covering, Trapped by Control (with John Berry), The Dangers of Alternative Ways of Healing and the A-Z Guide to the Healing Ministry.
