The Value of a Pig's Life

All life has value, but all life does not have equal value. One of the lies that Satan has promoted over the years is the idea that the life of a plant, a tree, a bird, or a pig is equal in value to the life of a human being. This idea has mostly taken root because of Darwinistic evolution and it's erroneous teachings. The concept of this faulty theory is that if we all came from the same place (the big bang and evolution) then all life is equal in value.

We must be able to discern the difference between the truth and a lie. God created us and He takes care of all life in His creation. Look at Matthew 6:26. It says, "Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?"

God cares for even the smallest animal in His creation, the sparrow. However, man is of more worth than the sparrow. That's what the word "better" means in the above verse.

Notice it again in Matthew 10:3, "Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows."

And it's not just birds that have life that is less valuable than mankind. Check out Matthew 12:11-13 "And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other."

In these verses Jesus heals on the Sabbath day saying that a man is "better" or of more value than a sheep.

And so we learn that the life of an animal, although valuable does not have the same value as the life of a person.

What is the value of the life of a pig? Hey, the pig is a noble animal of limitless value as far as I am concerned, and bacon goes with anything.
Have a happy day.
