Of course he does.

Is a man alone in a forest, in a world that has no other people, nor any gods, worth anything?

In other words, if there was only one being - a single solitary person - would that person be worth anything?

To himself, yes.

RE: Ask a Theist!
Why wouldn't a single solitary person be worth something?

Self worth is really the only thing a person has; it's the only thing a person is born with and the only thing that person dies with. As Chas said: the self is quite worthy.

RE: Ask a Theist!
If you go through the story of the christianity, in heaven there is no pain and suffering, right? So I couldn't just got up and punch you in the face. That means that I god takes away free will in heaven. Why wouldn't he have just done that to begin with.

I would say that the story makes absolutely no sense as for how it would go down if there actually was a loving God, but makes perfect sense if humans made it up to explain things we don't know or are scared of.

Remember, just because you want something to be true, doesn't make it true. Yes, even if you have faith.
