Each human being is unique creation of God. Each one of us has never been before and will never be again – throughout all eternity each human being who is, has, and will be conceived is unique.
By Rev. Deacon John Protopapas, Executive Director, Orthodox Christians for Life
The post, by means of videos and quotations with commentaries, covers The Source of Christian Teaching, Orthodox Worship, Scripture and the Unborn, What The Early Church Said, and What the Modern Church Says.
There is little more that can be said – the deliberate destruction and/or desecration of a human being is unthinkable for a true-believing Orthodox Christian. God created Man in his own likeness and image, man is a living icon of flesh and blood, in which God gave the breath of life (ruah). Killing an innocent human being can be seen is an act of blasphemy against God – it is the ultimate act of iconoclasm.
