Abortion and Euthanasia.

Extracts from this essay...


Abortion and Euthanasia All Christian's believe that life is sacred and that it is precious and should be respected by all mankind. This is probably because of the Bible reading Genesis 1:26,27. This states that God created humankind is created in the Images and Likeness of God. Quote "Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness", and so we should be protected and respected. Also it states that God give us dominion and power to look over Gods creation "and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth."


God has been involved in all of out lives and he breathes his life into each one of us. In Jeremiah 1:5 it states that God is active in the creation of us all and we all have individual gifts and talents that are unique. Also "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you" states Jeremiah 1:5. As well as this to be against abortion the 6th commandment "Do not kill" plays an important role.


I f anyone destroys God's Temple, God will destroy that person. For God's Temple is holy, and you are that temple. So to destroy a human being is like to destroy a temple of God. The word temple is chosen is because a temple is holy, a house of God is you please. And everyone treats the house of God with respect and God has chosen us to be his temples on Earth. Therefore we must all be treated with respect and so on and so forth. All this is why some Christians may be against the argument about Abortion and Euthanasia because of the Bible and what the prophets have said through it.
