Genesis 1:27 – So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
With social issues, such as racism and abortion, being hot topics of discussion, Christians often defend the value of humans and the sanctity of human life with “God created man in his image.” The phrase is not unbiblical; after all, in Genesis, God clearly stated that he created man after his own image. For Christians, the phrase is a very familiar and understandable lingo, but to a non-believer, the phrase is as clear as mud. What does it mean that God created man in his image?
The Ambassadors Forum wants to train Christians to defend their faith, and part of apologetics involves making simple Christian truths understandable and teachable to a non-believer. For this upcoming Friday Forum, Derry Tseng, regional director of PNW chapters of Ratio Christi, will be speaking about what it means to be created in God’s image so that Christians can be prepared to answer when asked what “in God’s image” means. Come to this virtual Friday Forum “What Does it Mean to be Created in God’s Image” on February 19, 2021 at 7 PM. To register, click here.
