Undercover videos from Planned Parenthood unleashed a national discussion on human life and its value. To help churches navigate those issues, LifeWay Christian Resources has free sanctity of human life Bible studies for download.
The free lessons are available in each of LifeWay's ongoing curriculum lines, Bible Studies for Life, Explore the Bible and The Gospel Project.
Churches need to be ready to "engage in the critical conversation about the sanctity of human life," said Philip Nation, content development director for LifeWay.
For church leaders and small group teachers, Nation said, "You and your Bible study group can give a voice to the most vulnerable of people."
Nation noted Christians' engagement on the issue can take three forms. Churches should speak the truth with grace, minister to those who have been hurt by abortion and study God's word to understand biblical truth, he said.
"The sessions can raise awareness during a time when many are wondering how we can speak clearly on God's view of the value of a precious human baby," Nation said.
The sessions for each curriculum are available at LifeWay.com/Article/sanctity-of-life-Sunday-free-bible-study-lessons.
