Catechesis Week 5: What does it mean to be created in the image of God? (2017.10.29 Sermon)

October 30th, 2017

John Chandler

John Chandler continues our eight week discussion series, “Catechesis: What the Church Has Always Believed”, by asking the question: “What does it mean to be created in the image of God?”

Quotes and Resources:

  • “You can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” — Anne Lamott
  • “It is true that the Christian West used its technological superiority to colonize much of the world, and that technology has created serious dangers for the environment as well as for humanity. Nevertheless, it is ideological blindness to ignore the fact that technology functioning within a biblical framework has been one of the chief instruments of human emancipation.” — Vishal Mangalwadi, The Book That Made Your World
  • “The image is a physical manifestation of divine (or royal) essence that bears the function of that which it represents; this gives the image-bearer the capacity to reflect the attributes of the one represented and act on his behalf.” — John H. Walton
