Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

What is the cost of a Human Life?

Does 1 human life have the same worth as another human life? Or are some peoples lives of more worth then others?

For example Is your life worth the same as a poor Africans starving to death on the other side of the world?

Your Answer : You think your life is worth hundreds of theirs because this is at least the number you could have saved in your lifetime if you wanted considering you are looking at a computer right now.

Is your childs life worth the same as a murderers? If you had a gun and had to shoot twenty wicked men would you do it?
Your Answer: Yes you would kill hundreds and hundreds of people just to save your one child. Actually you think that your child's life is worth more then yours and you would happily swap your life for theirs if it was required of you.

What about God. Does He value each life the same?
Now God warned Joseph to take Jesus to Egypt so that Jesus would not be killed.
When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under...
But he didn't warn thousands of other families did He. So obviously in this situation Jesus and his life was worth more then every baby in Bethlehem.

thought provoking.....

your final question does not really seem fair though.

"Does He value each life the same?" and then you use Jesus as an example. Jesus was/is God. perhaps the question you are leading to is Does He (God) value each human life the same?
I'd like to see where you take that question.

In His existence God has watched entire civilisations and their people vanish from the face of the earth. Races and people, men, women and children he can raise again.

We have to wait for that final day of judgement to see whose life is worth more to God.
