The Glorification of Man - Matt. 17:1-9
The transfiguration of our Lord Jesus and abortion may seem remotely connected at best. But when we understand what that event tells us about the destiny of man in Christ we begin to see that violence against man, especially against the weakest and least culpable, stands out in stark relief. If the glory that shone from the face and clothing of our Lord on the mountain was a vision of what man in Christ will one day be like then man is no mere animal. Man is not a machine walking around in a meat sandwich. In Christ, man is glorified above every other creature. Abortion must be seen as a repudiation of this vision of man. It must be resisted by restoring a proper, Christian, and biblical understanding of who man is an who he may be through the redemption of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
