Episode 4.2: The Image of God


Why is the creation of man set apart by the confession and the Bible? What is the significance of “male and female” to our cultural dilemma? What is the “image of God”? What are some practical applications of being made in the image of God? What does it mean to have the law written on the heart? What would happen if Adam and Eve continued in obedience to God? How does this help us to understand Jesus more? These are some of the questions we discuss in this week’s episode. Join Joel, Shawn, Nathan, and Kyle as they discuss WCF 4.2:

After God had made all other creatures, He created man, male and female, with reasonable and immortal souls, endued with knowledge, righteousness, and true holiness, after His own image; having the law of God written in their hearts, and power to fulfil it; and yet under a possibility of transgressing, being left to the liberty of their own will, which was subject unto change. Beside this law written in their hearts, they received a command, not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; which while they kept, they were happy in their communion with God, and had dominion over the creatures.
