The Sanctity of Human Life

Proverbs 31:8-9
Today we affirm our belief that human life is of inestimable worth and significance in all its dimensions, including the unborn, the aged, the mentally impaired, the poor, the unattractive, the physically challenged and every other condition in which humanness is expressed from conception to the grave.

We believe life is sacred.
We are no longer shocked to hear the words "genocide" and “ethnic cleansing" as terms for atrocities that continue across much of the world.
Induced abortion in the United States is on the DECLINE!
95-98% of all abortions are for the convenience of the mother.
There are some things in the Bible we cannot misunderstand.
The lack of value for life today is the result of godlessness.
If God is not the measure of what is true and right and beautiful, then I am and you are.  And since we—the god called “you,” and the god called “me”—may not agree, the result will be: might makes right.
Our society has desecrated the sanctity of life by replacing it with a “quality of life” ethic. 
it should be no surprise that dependency is looked upon as the ultimate weakness.
The presence or absence of individual characteristics, abilities or capacities cannot determine humanness.
The predominant worldview of America treats human beings as things rather than as persons, as objects rather than individuals made in the image of God.
Sadly, we see ourselves as more different than alike and voice our differences with disrespect and egotistical discrimination.
Demeaning, degrading, humiliating, debasing remarks have no place in the life of a believer in Jesus Christ.

We should examine our hearts for attitudes toward ourselves and others that violate the spirit of the Sanctity of Human Life ethic.
