1 CE 10 Unit: Reverence for Life

2  Horton Hears a Who Recap  Concept of Personhood  Sanctity of Life  Examples of how our society devalues life

3  Defining a person may seem easy but history is full of examples where certain groups of people have been considered less than human by other people in power.  This has led to abuses such as slavery, the Holocaust, discrimination, genocide, and abortion

4  To truly know what something is, we must define it objectively, independent of feelings or beliefs.  How would you define a person?  1. appearance  2. powers  3. conditions  4. final goal

5 Personhood depends on appearance  A person is defined as a physical, material being who is meant to enjoy pleasure and avoid pain.  If someone does not look a certain way, or lacks certain physical functions, we may think he or she is not a person.

6 Personhood depends on ability to achieve  In order to be fully human, a person has to have the potential to achieve all, or at least some of these subjective things.  What about the personhood of the unborn, the elderly, the disabled, the socially marginalized, the poor, and others invulnerable populations?

7 Personhood depends on the potential to give and receive love.  The unborn, the elderly, the disabled etc., are all people because they all have the potential to participate in love.  Without definition 3 we miss out on the unconditional worth and dignity of human persons.

8 Personhood is recognized in all humans because we are made in God’s image.  Level 4 understands the meaning of human life as union with the unconditional love of God. Therefore, any being who can ultimately recognize and receive the unconditional love of God is a person.  Since all human beings are made in the image and likeness of God, and created for His unconditional love, all human beings are human persons.

9 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:26-27 This means people are reflections of God. In humans, something of God himself can be seen. We have a soul which lives on after the body has died. We are special and different from other species.

10  God makes and loves each person, so everyone has value: unborn, elderly, healthy, ill, useful members of society or in need of care.  Life is a gift from God.  Therefore life should be preserved at all stages – from conception to natural end

11  This means we have a responsibility to take care of ourselves.  We should do something useful with our lives, not just waste it, and we should take care of our own health and other people’s.  How does society devalue life?  How do advertisements and music degrade the human image?
