But we still have a god-given right to eat don't you think? Would you eat rabbit raw? Man learned to make fire, he wasn't born with it, but he was
born with a brain to discover things.
No, we don't have a god-given right to eat. Our parents, who gave birth to us have the responsibility to feed us until we can fend for ourselves, but
it's not a god-given right. If we all had a god-given right to eat there would be no such thing as starvation, but, it exists, so eating is not a
Every living thing on this planet has a God given right to defend itself. Some creatures were born with tusks, sharp teeth, claws, horns, poison
stingers, camoflage, etc, and humans were just born with fists and a brain to learn how to make weapons using sticks, rocks, metal, etc.
The whole liberal argument that govt gave us the right to have weapons is patently absurd. And what is govt but a bunch of men who make laws to
control other men. So whose right is it for man to control other men arbitrarily?

We also don't have a god-given right to defend ourselves or all creatures would be born with the exact same defenses. Some are born to be eaten by
those who are able to eat them. It's not a god-given right for either party, it's survival of the fittest.
We do not have any "god-given rights" because God didn't give rights. God isn't political, God isn't a government, God is God. No rights are
given, only gifts he wishes to bestow upon us. He ALLOWS us to have free will, but it's not a "right" that we're entitled to in any way, shape or
form. Look at Jonah, he felt he could use his free will to ignore what God ordered him to do and spent quite some time in the belly of a great fish
(according to the bible). He didn't have the right to even say "no" now did he?
There is no such thing as a "God given right". They don't exist. Any rights we have are given to us by the governments we formed. Anything from God
isn't a right, we can't sue God because we don't get what we think we should get, we can't whine and say "well you gave it to him" and expect
God to do the same for us. "Rights" are something provided by a government, not something provided by God.
If you believe in God, you believe that God gives you what you need when you need it out of his grace, not because you have a "right" to it. You
have no rights, you aren't on equal ground with God. What you get is given to you through his grace, not because he owes it to you.
