Sermon Description

As we paused last week in Genesis 1 to reflect of the significance of the imago dei in relation to race and racism, today we want to draw out further implications as it relates to life and abortion. Forty-nine years ago, the Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion-on-demand. It is arguably one of the greatest affronts to human dignity and an egregious violation of human rights. Persuasive arguments rooted in logic and natural law could be made, but the Christian's base conviction is the belief that every human being – no matter what stage of development – bears the divine image of our Maker.

Sermon Description

On this MLK Jr. holiday weekend, we want to pause in Genesis 1 to reflect on the beauty of the imago dei and the ugliness of racism. We should be thankful that, in our day, the vast majority would wholeheartedly support Dr. King's dream to be judged by the content of his character rather than the color of his skin. But does the vast majority understand the theological underpinning for that dream? Do we realize that, without the belief that every human being is made in the image of God, ethnic harmony will remain a pipe dream?

Sermon Description

Our treatment of people reveals how much we value them. We shout at the representative of our internet service provider when the internet goes down for longer than we expect. We treat co-workers as tools to get the job done rather than value them as people. We disregard the opinions of young people because we believe they lack life experience. Yet God is gracious to people regardless of background. Why does God value people?
