2. The concept that humanity is created in the image of God may refer to a number of things. List four: two covered in the textbook and two covered in the lecture. The image of God indicates that you also have remnants of his character within you, and may include the capability to love - even those who seem unlovable, the capability to create for purpose or simply for beauty, the ability to reason on a very high level, the ability to explore the universe, the capability to communicate with our Creator andto consciously worship Him, the ability to sacrifice for others, a sense of justice − able to be fair, and a built- in sense of right and wrong − morality.

truth revealed in Genesis 1:26-27 that humanity was created in the image of God − spirit beings like Him.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
