SCRIPTURE

SANCTITY OF LIFE AND FAMILY 
 Isaiah 42:5 God the Lord…gives breath to everyone who walks the earth. 
 Job 12:10 For the life of every living thing is in his hand, and the breath of every human being… 33:4 For the Spirit of God has made me, and the Breath of the Almighty gives me life. 
 Psalm 139:13-16 13For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 
 Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you before you were born I set you apart… 
 Deuteronomy 27:25 Cursed is anyone who accepts
payment to kill an innocent person. And all the people  will reply, ‘Amen.’ 
 Genesis 1:27-28 27So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. 28 Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it…2:24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.  
 Mark 10:6-9 6“But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ 7 ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, 8 and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” 
 1 Corinthians 7:2 …But because there is so much sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband. 
 Leviticus 20:13 If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense. 
 Romans 1:25-28 25They traded the truth about God for a lie….26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved. 28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. 
 

EDUCATION AND GOVERNMENT 
 Deuteronomy 6:1a,7 1aThese are the commands, decrees, and regulations that the LORD your God commanded me to teach you…7 Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. 
 Psalm 78:4, 6-7 4We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the LORD… 6 so the next generation might know them— even the children not yet born— and they, in turn, will teach their own children.  7 So each generation should set its hope anew on God…  
 Proverbs 9:10 Fear of the LORD is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good  judgment…22:6 Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it. 
 Isaiah 54:13-14 13I will teach all your children, and they will enjoy great peace. 14 You will be secure under a  government that is just and fair. Your enemies will stay far away. You will live in peace, and terror will not come near. 
 2 Timothy 3:15-16 15You have been taught the Holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.  
 Psalm 22:28 For royal power belongs to the LORD. He rules all the nations. 
 Proverbs 8:15-16 15Because of me, kings reign, and rulers make just decrees. 16 Rulers lead with my help, and nobles make righteous judgments. 
 Acts 17:26 From one man he created all the nations throughout the earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries. 
 Romans 13:1 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.
