Biblical World -View Offers Dignity And Respect to Human Life: Bishop

E-mail Print PDF
BELLARY, NOV. 13: “The Biblical world-view offers equal dignity and respect to human life at all stages of growth. Christians need to communicate that Biblical-world view to the Indian society which is infested with evils such as casteism”, declared Bishop of Bellary Henry D’Souza. “The Holy Bible unequivocally declares that all humans are created unto the very image and likeness of God. Hence they have equal dignity imparted by the creator Himself and that dignity should never be undermined through violence and caste discrimination”, added Bishop D’Souza. Bishop Henry D’Souza was speaking at the inauguration of “Bellary Christian Book Fair” on Nov. 12, held at Hotel Rameshwari. “The Biblical world-view needs to be transmitted to the fellow Indians through effective proclamation and life witness,” Bishop added. “Unbridled craze for power, widespread criminal acts at all levels and dehumanizing caste based discrimination are undermining the very sacred dignity and respect for human life. Such a situation can be undone only through respect for life and loving service to humanity”, asserted Bishop of Bellary. “It’s only true evangelization and a life founded on the life and teachings of Christ can bring honour and dignity to people who are subjugated by indignity and criminal injustice”, affirmed Bishop D’Souza. The book fair organized by O. M. Books has a collection of Bibles in various languages and a variety of audio-visuals. The book fare will conclude on Nov. 15.
