There are many reasons the Christian view of humanity is very important. The Christian view of humanity believes that humans were created in the image of God. We will look at the biblical view of humanity. We are going to look at the nature of man, the freedom of man, the personality of man, the fall of man, the nature of sin and death, as well as why God has allowed sin to enter into the world, as well as all of the wickedness and suffering that came with it.
4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
and the son of man that you care for him?
Andrews will answer the following questions and far more. How does the Bible explain and describe the creation of man and woman? Why is it imperative that we understand our fallen condition? What does it mean to be made in the image of God? What are the original language words for “man” in Hebrew and Greek? What do they mean? Why Do We Grow Old and Die?
What Scriptural evidence is there that imperfect humans are mentally bent toward evil? How can we control our mental bent toward evil? What is the ongoing conflict within us? What are the moral law and sin’s law? How do we take off the old person and put on the new person?
How does this completely new man come about? How do we “learn Christ”? Why is it important that we put away the old person definitively? What is the force that sets our mind into motion, and how is it made new? What was Adam given that imperfect humans still have, which needs to be cultivated?
How do we correctly understand our freedom as it relates to God's foreknowledge? Does foreknowledge equal foreordination? Does foreknowledge determine the free decision, or do free decisions determine the foreknowledge? Does the event happen because God foreknows it, or because God foreknows the event it will happen?
