The Human Rights Crisis in a Global Context. A Christian Approach.
The Bible reveals that God is our Creator and that law springs from His will and reflects His holy character. The Bible includes the laws of Israel given at Sinai (Exodus 20), the laws of Medes and Persians (Daniel 6:8) and the law of Rome. This paper questions the biblical inspiration of civil law that is the law that orders human societies and is implemented and enforced through  human government. The Bible, one way or another, addresses almost all  areas of civil law, including evidence, civil and criminal procedure, court  administration and welfare regulation. The question that our paper ends with  is whether going back to divine law could prove beneficial for mankind,  especially in the wake of global crises.
