What Can We Learn About God from the Image of God in Us?

Hosted By: Drisha

The doctrine that humans were created in God’s image is supposed to tell us that there’s something unique and something special, even sacred, about humanity. It is a principle about humans, and therefore, you could call it anthropological. But the principle also tells us something about God. In other words, it’s also a theological principle. What is it that God shares with humans? Does God have an emotional life? Is God a person? Are these questions not heretical? Come along to find out!
