The Value of Life

This Sunday, thousands of pastors across the nation will give a biblical sermon about the sanctity of human life.

Next Tuesday (January 20), the annual "Washington State March For Life" will take place in Olympia.

Here is more information on both events and some personal thoughts on the value of life.

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

This Sunday is "Sanctity of Human Life" Sunday, coinciding with the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Thousands of pastors will preach a biblical sermon on the sanctity of life---the value of life from God's perspective.

Pray for those pastors who boldly stand with God's Word and the value of human life.

Consider the following from Concerned Women for America:

  • Humans reflect the image of God.

"So God created man in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them" (Genesis 1:27).

  • The punishment of death was applied to those who take another's life because God values human life.

"Whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man" (Genesis 9:6).

  • God gives life before birth and cares for the unborn.

"For you formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works. And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You. When I was made in secret. And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written. The days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them" (Psalms 139: 13-16).

  • God has a purpose and calling for individuals even before we are born.

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations" (Jeremiah 1:5).

"For he will be great in the sight of the Lord and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb" (Luke 1:15).

Washington State March For Life

This coming Tuesday is the annual Washington State March For Life in Olympia.

  • The March will organize about 11 AM at the Winged Victory Monument on the Capitol campus. Just before 12 it will move the short distance to the Capitol steps.

  • A one-hour program will feature comments from pro-life legislators and leaders.

  • For more information about the event, read this.

  • For answers to frequently asked questions, read this.

We strongly encourage all to attend. Those who cannot attend, remember those who do in prayer.

On the radio today I will be talking about "life"---specifically about embryonic stem cell research and why it is wrong. We will also inform you of current breaking news events and how they relate to a biblical worldview.

Join me live at 9 AM PST or a rebroadcast at 7:30 PM PST from anywhere in the world. Here's how.

Be Informed. Be Pro-Life.


  1. Better for a mother to watch her children come into the kingdom of heaven after her, than the other way around, depending on the circumstances, I suppose.

  2. I believe every unborn child should have the right to decide, and who should go ahead with anything that would infringe upon that right, until they know for certain, with absolute certainty, what that unborn's decision is, even if it's not old enough to make that decision?

    I wouldn't want my right to vote taken away from me just because I was too young. I'm glad that never happened to me, because the day finally came when I was old enough, and then I got registered.

    It seems to me that anyone who isn't willing to look at everyone's interests involved in a matter, equally, whenever they should be looked at equally, then they are really not at all about equality, nor are they about fairness, but rather are about a selfish agenda.

  3. I think we all should pretty much agree that left unmolested, letting things carry on naturally, that we can assume the very great and vast majority of children in the womb, tend to go along with the idea of life, and getting born.

  4. I believe nature itself teaches us that the unborn child is for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

  5. The Federal government is against a lot of things, and in the past they have been, but that didn't seem to stop Washington state from the legalization of marijuana and some other things.

    I would like to see the state declare that the unborn child is the property of it's parents, and not the state, and also declare and protect it's right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    I'm thinking too that if a governor, senator, or whatever, got on that band wagon, he might find his ticket to the white house, if that's what he wants.
    At least to some extent he or she would be acting worthy of such a position of authority and influence.

  6. I guess with Roe v. Wade back in the '70's, legally thinking... they must have thought as far as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, you actually had to be born to get all that.

  7. And it must have been (with Roe v. Wade) that the father of the child had nothing to say about it's future as concerning life or death, because the child was in the mother's "house", and therefore it should be her decision only, and I guess it's like that politically, whenever one party is in the majority in government and it becomes "their house"...and they then can do whatever they want to do....and we call that the constitution.

  8. So it seems that because the supreme court determined that if a thing is in a certain house, then that house has the control of it, and that seems to be how much of what we have seen politically, has been run, as if they know they will have the backing of the highest court, with little regard as to whether or not what they do is right or not.

  9. I'm reminded of how Jesus said that he that commits sin is the servant of it.
    Hopefully they don't stay in that house forever...lest they become more than a servant.
