Big Idea: Since God has given us his image every man, woman and child has dignity in the eyes of God and humanity.

Three characteristics of the image of God that make it the only comprehensive, consistent and credible basis for humanity dignity:

  1. The image is the basis for our inherent dignity (Genesis 9:6; James 3:9-10)
  2. The image can never be taken away (Genesis 1:26-27)
  3. The image is universal to all of humanity (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 9:6; James 3:9-10)
    • אָדָם  adam – mankind
    • ἄνθρωπος anthrōpos – human, human being


Humanity of the Unborn:

  • “I think we can now also say that the question of the beginning of life – when life begins – is no longer a question for theological or philosophical dispute. It is an established scientific fact…that all life, including human life, begins at the moment of conception…”  – Dr. Hymie Gordon, Mayo Clinic
