Human insignificance is a destructive idea

Concerning the matter of lives, to disrespect any human life in any phase, is to disrespect all human life and the Creator of humanity. It saddens me to hear of any human life being taken, whether by police, gang members, stand your ground advocates, or Planned Parenthood doctors.

The living Jesus tells me that your life matters more than you can imagine. Insignificance is a dangerous and self-destructive concept.

After centuries of the idea that “black lives are insignificant,” it’s good to state the simple truth that “black lives matter.” It’s also good to be reminded that prenatal lives matter, because modern society says that “prenatal lives don’t matter.” That myth needs to be replaced with “all lives matter.”

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
