Why Do Any Lives Matter?

Why do any human lives have value? How can we find a basis for a person’s worth, significance, and dignity—a basis that transcends their class, gender, race, or creed? In this timely Short Answers video, Dr. Andy Bannister shows how atheism offers no basis whatsoever for explaining why human life matters or why racism is wrong. By contrast, at the heart of the Christian faith lies one of the most profound statements about human value to be found in any religion—a statement that gives an incredible foundation for human rights and dignity.
