Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

Today we honor Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. God, our loving Creator, gave us life, so all life from conception to natural death is sacred. 

Scott Klusendorf has an easy-to-remember acrostic for defending the pro-life position. The word to remember is S.L.E.D.—

Size: Does how big you are determine who you are or your level of importance? 

Level of development: Are twenty-year-olds more human than ten-year-olds, since they are smarter and stronger?

Environment: Does being inside a house make you more or less of a person than being outside? Does being located in his mother’s body rather than outside make a child less human?

Degree of dependency: Does dependence upon another determine who you are? Is someone with Alzheimer’s or on kidney dialysis less of a person?

Use these questions to engage folks in thoughtful discussions about your pro-life worldview.

    Do you think the fact that God repeats Himself three times is significant?

    Jeremiah 7:31
    They have built pagan shrines at Topheth, the garbage dump in the valley of Ben-Hinnom, and there they burn their sons and daughters in the fire.
    I have never commanded such a horrible deed; it never even crossed my mind to command such a thing!

    Jeremiah 19:5
    They have built pagan shrines to Baal, and there they burn their sons as sacrifices to Baal.
    I have never commanded such a horrible deed; it never even crossed my mind to command such a thing!

    Jeremiah 32:35
    They have built pagan shrines to Baal in the valley of Ben-Hinnom, and there they sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molech.
    I have never commanded such a horrible deed; it never even crossed my mind to command such a thing. What an incredible evil, causing Judah to sin so greatly!
