Message: Image of God
Speaker: Greg Holder
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Gen. 1:1,27
Every human being bears the image of God. (Latin: Imago Dei)
We are created for relationship with each other but, in a distinct and wondrous way, with God. The longings of our souls trace back to this innate capacity for intimacy with the eternal one...To bear his image is a statement of human dignity. There are no ordinary people. This is also a statement of human responsibility. We are to reflect the righteousness of God to each other and the world.
Three areas where we disrespect the image of God in others:
*Not Acknowledging The Intrinsic Value Of The Unborn
*The Use Of Pornography
