Even when the world is prepared to acknowledge that the human being has a soul, some inner bio-electronics (you might say), the real dignity of man remains ungrasped by engineered public opinion.
Even should the human soul be elevated to a spiritual sphere, the dignity of man remains a questionable thing in the subconscious of public opinion which perceives the manifold evils committed everywhere, neglecting the conscience within, accorded to each and everyone by The Creator, The Almighty.

In the search for the dignity of man,
the inner person
is almost always totally ignored.

I write almost but this word could be easily removed.
The human being is body and soul - that seems to be all!
But this is totally inaccurate because the human being is person, body and soul, and

the person is that which gives absolute dignity
to each and every one.

I refer again to Church Doctrine that Jesus Christ, God made Man, is the second Person of The Holy Trinity. It is the Second Person that took to Himself a body and soul of a human.
Here we perceive clearly that Jesus Christ, a human being in the full sense,

is a Person
having a Body
and a Soul.

And so is each and every other human being.
That is to say, the human being is made up of three portions so to speak, person, soul and body -
not just body and soul.

And indeed, the person of each human being
is like the Person of Jesus Christ Himself
- which issues directly from The Eternal-father.

Therefore my person also issues directly from The Eternal-father.
And, just like Jesus, the person that is me, has been given a body and a soul.
Now in this reality, it is very, very easy to perceive the incredible dignity of each and every human being - person, soul and body!

From conception.

Peace is a very strange word - with many meanings.
Peace, in Scripture, has very strange uses, as well. In the Old Testament peace is used in numerable instances with regard to victims offered up in sacrifice. So we might find victims of peace  in some Books. We might find  peace offerings.
It is a strange thing that the word
victim is found in the same sentence as peace, as though there was trade - a victim traded for peace.
victim has the opposite purposefulness to that of peace!
One of the results of sin!
We rebelled against God and so we were obliged to try and make amends which includes peace offerings.
peace offerings of the Old Testament period were effective, being a gesture to The Almighty that we are trying to regain His Mercy, as well as a lesson for all involved of the result of sin, of the debt due by creature to Creature, of the need of God's intervention,

but also as a prophecy of the Perfect Victim
Who would be the Prince of Peace.

Even though perfect peace has probably never been known to mankind, all peoples of all times, have sought such a peace.
P 21 36 9 For the evildoers shall be cut off: but they that wait upon the Lord shall inherit the land. 21 36 10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: and thou shalt seek his place, and shalt not find it. 21 36 11 But the meek shall inherit the land, and

shall delight in abundance of peace. P Psalms.

That peace will come about through the Prince of Peace.
P 27 9 6  For a CHILD IS BORN to us, and a son is given to us, and the government is upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counsellor, God the Mighty, the Father of the world to come, the Prince of Peace.
27   9   7  His empire shall be multiplied,

and there shall be no end of peace:

he shall sit upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom; to establish it and strengthen it with judgment and with justice, from henceforth and for ever: the zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. P Isaias
But what does The Prince of Peace, Himself, say about this?
P  47 10 34 Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth:

I came not to send peace,
but the sword.

47 10 35 For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 47 10 36  And as a man's enemies shall be they of his own household. PMatthew
And certainly, this has been the case for the past 2,000 years as Truth and deception continued at war at an ever greater pace reaching a climax in the twentieth century where Deception, already defeated absolutely at Golgotha by Christ, met
