31:35- The Destruction of Detachment

“But the man-moulders of the new age will be armed with the powers of an omnicompetent state and an irresistible scientific technique; we shall get at last a race of conditioners who really can cut out all posterity in what shape they please . . . It is not that they are bad men. They are not men at all. Stepping outside the Tao, they have stepped into the void. Nor are their subjects necessariy unhappy men. They are not men at all: they are artefacts. Man’s final conquest has proved to be the abolition of Man.  Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis

Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

On the imago Dei: The imago Dei and Human Dignity
https://www.resurrectionchurch.com/imagodei

Definition: The imago dei or the image of God is the theological truth that all humanity has the Creator God’s image stamped on them. Although there is some mystery surrounding this concept, we know one thing for certain: being made in the image of God separates humanity from the rest of creation. Being image-bearers means that all humanity – all children (in the womb or out of the womb) and adults (however old), all men and women, all ethnicities and people groups, all able and disabled, all incarcerated and free people – have inherent and equal dignity, value, and worth. Humans do not earn their dignity and value through work, culture, government, or society; rather, their dignity, value, and worth is given directly by God.  (“The imago Dei and Human Dignity, Resurrection Church)

33:30- Who do we think we answer to?

Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good! Psalm 14:1 NLT
