Humanity and Sin #5 – The Imago Dei in Humanity

What does it mean that we are made in the “Imago Dei” or image of God? In this class session we look at what it means when God says in Genesis 1:26 “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…” What aspects could we possibly share with God? And even if we did share such attributes, didn’t the fall affect our reflection of God’s Image? Our answers to these questions affect how we view ourselves and more importantly how we view and treat others, especially those outside the faith. The specific questions we will address are: Do humans carry dignity as God’s image bearers? Do humans alone carry the image of God? What about animals? Do they have the image of God? What affect did the fall have on the image of God? Did humanity lose this image after the Fall? How should the fact that man is created in the image of God affect the way we treat one another?
