Community School of the Bible - Fall 2017 Course
God and the Human Condition
God and the Human Condition is a two part course that focuses on humanity and its relationship to God.
The first half focuses on humanity as a created being and deals with topics that include the origin of humanity, the image of God in humanity, and human constitution.
The second half focuses on the major threat to humanity’s relationship to God—sin—and deals with topics that include the nature of sin, the source and effects of sin, original sin, and the social dimension of sin. Throughout, discussion will be given to the relevance and implications of these issues for Christian life, faith, and ministry in our contemporary context.
