Crime is breaking man-made laws. The state and other authorities installed these laws to protect and keep the wellbeing of their citizens. Sin, as described by natural law, is the true crime, as opposed to the interpretation of crime by mankind. (Acts 5:29) But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men”. The legal definition of crime has disregarded the moral teachings of god, thus excluding the true and divine law we were meant to follow.
Although natural law dictates that we know right from wrong because these laws are written in our hearts, we are already born into sin, but sin is primarily a transgression against god’s commandments and not to a worldly system of law unless the system is of and for god. Also, according to the law, to convict someone of a crime, evidence must be present, which is not the case for sin itself. Sin is merely a self-harm in most cases, a betrayal of god’s law. Even if you are found innocent of the crime based on insufficient evidence, you are still held liable by god the one true judge come judgement day. Laws change over time to fit the cultural “norms” of society; sins were written in stone and are never changing.
Unalienable rights derived from natural law, rights endowed upon us by our divine creator such as Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness as stated by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence. Unalienable rights are natural human rights, they cannot be taken away from us. Legal rights are different, they are more of a privilege given to us. If we commit a crime, some of our legal rights can be taken away from us, depending on the crime. In the United States, we have the right to our own religious beliefs, as opposed to Saudi Arabia, where they do not. In Saudi Arabia, if a citizen is found trying to convert from Islam they could face the death penalty. Legal rights are not guaranteed and are not of god but of a worldly system. Unalienable rights are universal regardless of what nation you live in. These unalienable rights can be traced back in the scriptures; Isaiah 45:23, Philippians 2:10 which speaks of the fact that we are all granted these rights equally, Leviticus 24:17, Psalm 139:13–16 speaks of life, Luke 4:18 speaks of liberty and Psalm 37:4, Psalm 73:25–26, Matthew 13:44, John 10:10, John 15:11, Philippians 1:21, Philippians 3:8). Speaks of the pursuit of happiness.
