Creating a culture of light and life

Posted by Patrick Henry College on 2/15/24 5:25 PM

To be pro-life is to champion the dignity of every human being in every stage of development and in every condition of life. To be pro-life is to combat the lie that a person's age, or socioeconomic status, or ethnicity, or origin, or position, or title or anything else in any way apportions their value.

To be pro-life is to recognize that our worth is entirely bound up in being created imago Dei—in the image of God. And since being made imago Dei is intrinsic to our created being, every life is intrinsically, unalterably, infinitely, and eternally valuable.

Walk as children of light

This movement is radically anti-death. It fervently counters the lie that life is futile and there is ever a justification to cut short one's own or anyone else's life. This movement is radically self-sacrificial. It recognizes that we must be the ones to step-up and care for the orphans, the widows, the outcast, the destitute, our neighbors. It recognizes that the purpose of life is not to gratify our own desires or make happiness our end.

To be pro-life is to recognize that the greatest goods in this life are to glorify God and love our neighbors as ourselves.

And while this movement is grieved by horrors of abortion, it is also filled with joy through the knowledge that the ugliest sin is redeemable by Christ—the One who has already come to know and overcome the darkness.

 "For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light." – Ephesians 5:8

Let's create a culture of light and life.
