Die waardigheid van mense

John Webster skryf in ‘n feesgeskrif The God of Love and Human Dignity (2007) ‘n artikel The Dignity of Creatures die volgende:

“Human dignity has its basis in the loving act of God the creator who summons creatures into being and bestows life on them, ordering their nature and determining their destiny by calling them to enact their being in fellowship with himself.

God the reconciler defeats creatures’ trespass upon their own dignity, restoring them to fellowship with himself and re-establishing their dignity.

God the perfecter completes the dignity of creatures, gathering them into the fellowship of the saints and empowering them actively to testify to God’s perfection of human dignity.”

‘n Mens kan eintlik net op dié trinitariese inkleding van menswaardigheid AMEN sê!
