Is “The Sanctity of Life” a Biblical Principle?

For You From The Word

God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness.” (Genesis 1:26, NIV)

For You To Think About

In January we commemorate the Sanctity of Human Life

baby feetThe “sanctity of life” is a term you may hear in political, ideological, or faith discussions. The term represents the principle that human life is sacred.

While the phrase “sanctity of life” does not appear word for word in scripture, nevertheless the principle is biblical. The term reflects the belief that people are made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26), thereby appropriating respect and protection for human life.

God gave humanity the authority to kill and eat other forms of life (Genesis 9:3) but He forbids the murder of human being by another (Genesis 9:6).

For You to Pray

Heavenly Father,
Move in our nation to respect the sanctity of human life. Amen.
