This course is a study of the nature of humanity and sin. We will look at the nature of humanity from a biblical perspective by examining the pre-fall and post-fall state of man. We will attempt to understand the implications of man being created in the image of God. Debates about the origin and nature of sin will be examined by asking questions such as: What is sin? Where did it begin? Why did God allow it? Are there different types of sin? This first class session was an introduction to the themes followed by an attempt to answer the questions: Why did God make mankind?
