Genesis 1:26-31 | Dignity & Worth
July 3, 2022
“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” The Declaration of Independence begins. But are equality and rights self-evident? Modern societies try to underpin human dignity and equal rights in human superiority or collective knowledge “everyone knows,” but lack philosophical integrity. Christianity claims all humans have equal and eternal significance and worth from conception to natural death because we are made in the image of God. This has implications for our view of ourselves, our view of all others and impels us to radical concern for the vulnerable and voiceless.
