Ligonier shares an excerpt from Dr. R.C. Sproul’s book, Abortion, in which Sproul discusses the concept of human dignity in light of the creation account found in Genesis. Sproul writes,
Creation in the image of God is what sets humans apart from all other creatures. The stamp of the image and likeness of God connects God and mankind uniquely. Though there is no biblical warrant for seeing man as godlike, there is a high dignity associated with this unique relationship to the Creator.
