Humanity was created in God’s image. Created out of love to have intrinsic worth, freedom and happiness. Life is sacred, significant and purposeful. Man’s value is determined by God’s love. It’s determined by His love through creation and redemption simultaneously. Life then has an infinite value.
Human commodification denies these factors for pure materialism. Life is estimated relative to an economic value. Making life itself limited and subjected to finance.
Love, purpose, happiness and value is then superficially seen as something that can be bought. And not seen as something deeply meaningful, which can’t be bought and freely given. But idealistically in terms of not considering their meanings.
Therefore, everything is seen as a financial transaction of economic exchange. To selfishly use and serve each other for our wants, needs and gratifications.
