Lesson 7
Commandment #6:

#5 Don't disrespect your parents
murder (ratsach, pronounced raw-tsakh') = a primitive root; properly, to dash in pieces, i.e. kill (a human being), especially to murder.
Key Point: The value and worth of human life is without precedence.
We are made in the image of God. (Genesis 1:26-27, 9:6)
We have a unique relationship with God.
We are given the role of earthly stewards.
We alone serve as His representatives on earth.
"A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy. They’re all animals.”
—Ingrid Newkirk (Co-founder of PETA)
