Lose God, lose compassion, freedom, or equality

AUCKLAND, New Zealand, October 21, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) -- Australia’s newest bishop is warning the West that the more it rejects God, the more it destroy’s the very foundation buttressing the values it holds most dear, including compassion, freedom, and equality.

“We live in a society that has rejected God, but still tries to hold onto the values that really come from a Christian understanding,” said Bishop Richard Umbers, who was made the auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Sydney by Pope Francis in August.

“[But] without God, without the foundation for the values we hold to — of care for one another, of compassion, of even freedom and equality, which is grounded upon the dignity of each human being, because we are made in the image and likeness of God — when you remove that, you remove the basis for that understanding,” he said in a video interview with LifeSiteNews.

LifeSiteNews caught up with Bishop Umbers while he was in New Zealand as the main celebrant for the youth conference LifeFest, organized by Family Life International.

Umbers said that when a Christian society formally rejects God, it no longer has the ability to understand itself and what it means to be human.
