Book Summary of Union With Christ by Rankin Wilbourne


Does the United States really believe its own declaration that “all men are created equal?” Nothing in the nation’s history has begged this question so fervently since the abolishment of slavery. However, that is not its only crime against humanity. Through the denial of basic rights to women, people of color, the unborn, the elderly, and the disabled, it’s not hard to see a very distinct and dangerous pattern. The fatal decision in Roe v. Wade has been more damaging than any other and has opened the door to even more dehumanizing efforts. So, what can be done?

Our greatest battle lies in working to restore the sanctity-of-life ethic in America. If the value of one’s life is found only in what one contributes to society, then those who appear to contribute less than others are deemed valueless; and if one is deemed valueless, then their very existence is disregarded as irrelevant. If we see all people as we should, as made in the very image of God, we will see them as intrinsically valuable, just as God does.
