Ecumenics policy is based on the rights of man specifically as provided in Scripture. Ecumenics policy and economic positions are consistent with the teachings of Scripture.

Ecumenic Policy Statement

Ecumenics are passionate about three things: We are passionate about promoting the bible as a source of our policy initiatives; We are passionate about adding value to the world through what we do; and we are passionate about human rights specifically the right of all peoples to what they create, the place they inhabit and the things they create with the concomitant right to reject the imposition of social costs onto society and future generations. People have a right to their property and social costs erase  this right. Social costs stem from legal rights and destroys value and this is not biblical.

Ecumenics not only feel the need to add value to what they have they believe they have the right to reject the right of others to impose costs on them so that the value of what they have is reduced. Christians ought to see the need to add value to the world as stewards and believers in the Golden Rule.

Human rights are predicated on the freedom of all beings to eliminate the necessity of paying social costs but this also entails or explicitly requires the desire not to impose social costs onto society and future generations. We have a right to the value we create but no right to the value created by someone else. Ecumenics stands by the right of all to refuse to take up costs created by others and the concommitant necessity to extend this right to others.

Christians are required by the love of God to reject all externalization of costs onto others. Ecumenics require our actions or transactions to benefit each  participants equally. Fair and equal transactions produce what is referred to as a rational exchange. What you take with one hand must be restored with the other. 

Ecumenics are an economic model that do not impose social costs; they do not externalize costs. Ecumenics do not require society and future generations to pay costs it's members create. All costs are contained in the Ecumenic. Ecumenics are  private markets that internalize all costs. Those who create costs ought to pay the cost created by them. This is simple economics. It is rational and it is biblical. It is unreasonable to argue that because others will enjoy the benefit some portion of the cost can be imposed on them if they had no choice in creating the cost.
