According to the Lord, the protection of Human Right can only be based on the concept of love.
However, this kind of love, is based on the brotherly kind of life, called Phileo in the Books of the Bible.
(This was what Jesus expected from His disciples or the Church in general). That form of love brings respect for one another.
Now, let’s try to dive more into the concept of love.
‘Okay, what is Love?’
In the Bible, we were told of the natures or the characters of love.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part,
but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
1 Cor. 3:4-7 KJV
How the world would have been, if these love-characteristics were exemplified by us? Truly, a number of good things would have happened, such as the respect of human rights.
Until men and women love one another, they cannot respect themselves.
Now, what are some of the reasons why we need to love ourselves?
a) To exhibit the final responsibility or purpose of Man.
The final ‘’purpose’’ of man here is to exemplify the highest ‘‘character’’ of God which is to love his brother.
Now, since love is the character of God, it diminishes your chances of being at loggerheads with each other. We always find the need to speak well of another and treat one each other respectfully.
Hence, loving ourselves and God, was made a command in the Bible.
…The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Mark 12:29-31 KJV.
If this was the first character God had given to man, then it means or suggest that, this was what the universe was made for.
b) Love Brings ‘‘Peace’’ Here On The Earth:
Peace heals the world. As we said, men will deter from wronging their fellow brother if they genuinely them; neither would he or she hit him, nor speak wrongly of him or her, nor will seek to destroy his reputation. Hatred, a negative energy, which is seen in the heart of many lives, is currently ruining the world.
c) Love Psychologically Heals The Hurtful Souls:
Finally, love heals your souls and that of others.
Understand that, every character is an energy that works in you, be it good or bad. As you demonstrate negative characters towards yourself or towards other people, negative energies (which are emotionally or psychological and biologically unhealthy) could ruin your flesh and your souls.
However, love is positive-it is healing. It takes cover of your ‘‘container,’’ and heals your bodies.
It has healing potencies which exhibits freedom, bringing us peace and ‘‘long-life.’’
You’ll have long life (eternal life) if your character is filled with so much love, just like God.
In short, loving ourselves, is the single determinant factor that helps us to eradicate the infringement of human rights and stop all abuses. No body curses nor insults the one he genuinely loves.
So, it’s our responsibility to campaign on the importance of loving one another, each and everyday. On then, human rights can be truly solved.
