Human Life Is Sacred

Do you believe human life is sacred? Do you believe that murder is wrong? The next question is, "Why?" 

Human life is sacred because: 
 
1) God created human life in His image.   (See Genesis 1:26-27)
 
2) God forbids the murder of human life.    (See Exodus 20:13)
The sanctity of human life most certainly applies to babies in the womb (Genesis 4:1; Exodus 21:22-25; Job 3:3; Psalm 51:5; 139:13-16; Luke 1:44) and to the handicapped, elderly and sick. 
 
May the sadness and horror of seeing the New York Assembly recently cheering gleefully--after passing a law legalizing the murder of babies in the womb up to the due date--move us to pray for them, for mothers, and for the unborn.
 
Life's sanctity also has every-day application in our lives for the importance of having a heart attitude toward others of respect and love (Matthew 5:21-22) and speaking to and about others with respect, love and kindness (James 3:8-10). Furthermore, we must speak truth to others even when it contradicts what they believe and may confront their sin, and we must do so with love (Ephesians 4:15). So, let us, by God's grace, speak the truth of life's sanctity with love.
