Made in the Image of God

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made”
(Psalm 139:14).

God has uniquely created every human being. At the very moment the sperm fertilizes the egg, an individual human being with his or her own combination of DNA—half from the father and half from the mother—begins developing inside the mother.

Far from being merely a clump of cells, a blob of tissue, or a parasite inside the mother, the tiny person inside the womb displays incredible complexity and purposeful design. The process of human development from fertilized egg to birth is a matchless wonder revealing the Creator’s awe-inspiring creativity and care.

Worldview Impact on the Unborn

A person’s position on origins and reality shapes how they view human life.

Naturalist Evolutionary Worldview

From a naturalistic evolutionary perspective, morality is arbitrary, and human beings have no more inherent value than an animal, a blade of grass, a rock, or anything else. Thus, ending human life via abortion or euthanasia carries no moral implications and is consistent with the evolutionary philosophy built on death and suffering.

Biblical Worldview

Since the Bible states that all people are made in the image of God, all human life, from fertilization until death, has unlimited value. Thus, the termination of human life through abortion and euthanasia are antithetical to the biblical worldview.
