Reader comments about this quote:
OK, umm - some accurate observations to get started with and then a new sentence that would be more accurate as a start of a list. The connotation of "reserve", lends itself to an understanding that dignity can be bestowed. Dignity is not from the outside-in but rather, a descriptive essence of being, from the inside-out.

    If you dip , dunk, sprinkle, or otherwise, you are a Baptist. From which comes the practice of socialism. forced dues or taxes so to speak. Thinking ones good works out way the finished work of Christ. Turning away from the doctrines of grace, being justified by works. This man smells of hypocrisy. Speaking of himself and the mega church built from required tithing. I suspect part of the " One world order " as obama has ties with this church and this church with the UN.

    Sounds good at initial glance, but isn't 'dignity' inherent from a natural law perspective? Perhaps the word 'Honor' or 'Respect'?
