Theology Tuesday – The Sanctity of Human Life

Pastor Paul Washer once said:

The sanctity of human life & the sanctity of God’s Name go hand in hand. Where God’s name is no longer hallowed, neither is life.

Our belief in the sanctity of life is not robust & significant until it extends to the vilest individual.  A consistent ethic of the sanctity of life will contend for life for all people, in all places, at all ages & at all times. Why? Because all have been created in God’s image.  And the biblical word on God’s care not just for the unborn but for poor, widowed, alien, etc.

So, what is the sanctity of human life all about? Check out this article by Ligonier Ministries that will teach the biblical truth on this issue:
