If any one saith, that Christ Jesus was given of God to men, as a redeemer in whom to trust, and not also as a legislator whom to obey; let him be anathema.
Responsibility is the ability and the right to fulfill some duty.
“those to whom much has been given, much will be expected.” (Luke 12:48)
I've always thought of responsibility to be a duty rather, something you are obligated to do (though not forced). Rights are therefore a separate thing, as they are entitlements. However, the two do often come together.
I am loving that otter Raman, nom nom. I am not sure though what you mean by duty and obligation being separate? Can you elaborate? The dictionary defines: Duty - something that one is expected or required to do by moral or legal obligation. an action or task required by a person's position or occupation; function: the duties of a clergyman. Obligation - the act of binding or obliging oneself by a promise, contract, etc. something by which a person is bound or obliged to do certain things, and which arises out of a sense of duty or results from custom, law, etc.
