Thought of the Day

Human rights were not invented by the United Nations. Equally, they did not spring from the Age of Enlightenment. They have been ordained by God.

– Father Werenfried van Straaten, (1913-2003), Founder of ACN

Human rights in my view is the right to be human and as the quote rightly states, that right is ordained by God. God also ordained us to be Human beings. As we assert our rights, may we also seek to find the being,”the likeness of God” in ourselves and be renewed by the transformation that God want our mind to be.

Is there any evidence that human rights are ordained by God, and how can we know what human rights are?

All definitions of what human rights are that I am aware of were written by men, and written by men incredibly recently. If they were ordained by God, why is this so?
