There are two different creations stories in Genesis.

The essence of what it means to be human
is that we are made in God’s image.

I. People have creative ability to manage what God has made.

A. Some things we enjoy making:

B. Things we make can easily become idols.

II. People know right from wrong.

A. Adam & Eve had a singular choice.

B. Choices we make can be sacramental.

III. People exist in relationship.

A. We were made to know God.

B. We need a suitable helper.

The devaluation of human life in our society today is directly related to the secular humanistic view of humanity that refuses to see man as God’s greatest creation.
