Created in the Image of God

What distinguishes us from chimpanzees? In addition to identifying the obvious physical differences, we usually make the case that this difference lies with something within us, that is, the rational soul. Interestingly, the Bible also identifies it as something between us and God; that is, a covenantal commission. What is unique about this commission that God gives only to us through our father Adam? Through this talk, we’ll explore what it means to be created in the image of God and why this still matters today.
