Uncovering a False Religion
“Rarely have I read such an informative, historically accurate, and biblically correct book. David Cross has clearly defined why the matter of ‘human rights’ is one of the most serious issues of the day. This book is an in-depth “Divine litmus test” that is desperately needed in a world of increasing entitlement, lawlessness and humanly defined, so-called inalienable rights, which contrast sharply with the values and rights constituted by a Sovereign God.
In these pages, David offers profound hope in a failing society – a society that is trying to re-define itself morally, ethically, politically and even re-define God! But, in the end there will be grave consequences, as Isaiah reminds us – “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20).
Not only do I enthusiastically endorse this book, but it is my fervent hope that it finds its way into the hands of every serious seeker of truth – especially every church and government leader, in as many circles as possible. Be prepared to be challenged and have your Bible close at hand!”

“This insightful book makes it clear where the human rights movement has gone wrong and deserves serious consideration and analysis. From both a theological and legal perspective, David Cross’s juxtaposition of Biblical teaching and misplaced human rights theory is powerful and persuasive. From the Enlightenment onwards, he shows a convincing knowledge of history and philosophy, crafting a dynamic apologetic as to how today’s ‘rights’ movement is in essence a Tower of Babel movement.
What’s Wrong with Human Rights is accessible and impressive. David manages to distil extremely complex concepts and philosophical traditions into an understandable and gratifying format which can be enjoyed by anyone whatever their background, from the layman to the graduate student.
By exposing the cracks in today’s radical embracement of a rights culture and suggesting a Biblical remedy as the only way back, he has transformed old-school Christianity into the new school legal world. It is a must read for anyone interested in today’s culture wars.”
