Series: How Should We Now live?
Title: "The Sanctity of Human Life" - Part Four
"Then God said, 'Let us make man in our image, in our likeness…'" Genesis 1:26
Permeating throughout the Ten Commandments is a sense of dignity, respect and value given to human life. Nothing is more precious in all creation and nothing as important as how we treat our fellow beings. Author and Bible teacher, Charles Price, discusses the sanctity of human life, and brings to light the value, purpose and immortality that God has provided for every human being.
Genesis 2:7 says, “The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.” The word ‘breath’ is the Hebrew word ‘ruach’, which can be legitimately translated as ‘spirit’. There is no other living being on earth that can be described as ‘spiritual’. God breathed His own Spirit into the human body, which was designed to be the habitation of God Himself. Humanity is the pinnacle of God's creation.
