Each Person Has Integral Value as Made in the Image of God

All people are created in the image of God, though this image is broken and the reflection is incomplete: as His sons and daughters we are expected to treat all people as significant and valuable. To be sure this is easier with some than with others. The damage of the Fall takes different forms in different people, and each of us has a unique national, local and family history, culture and social background, all of which must be taken in to account and allowed for as we love our neighbour as commanded.
