The Nature of Humanity: What is a Human?

We will start off by answering "What is a human?" through a theological lens. What does the Bible say about humanity? What does it mean to be an image-bearer? We will talk about God's creation of man, sonship, body and soul, human dignity, and the majesty of the Incarnation on fallen man's behalf. As you can see, this topic touches on every major doctrine. And we're just getting started! Don't miss this session! It will establish an important foundation as each session builds a pathway to your understanding of Truth and your confidence in answering some of life's most important questions.

AI: What Makes Humans Distinct from Robots?

Is our brain a computer and our mind software? Will robots one day have souls? Will we one day be able to be uploaded to a super computer? These questions and more stem from a very specific view of the nature of the human intellect. Join me for an exploration of what it means to be a rational being to determine whether there are extra-biblical grounds for believing that humanity is indeed unique and irreplicable.

Options for Human Origins: How Does your View of Human Origins Impact your Understanding of Human Uniqueness as Affirmed by Christianity?

Christianity affirms that God created the human being as a unique kind of being, one that bears His image. The question is whether each of the major human origins views commonly held by Christians—young earth creationism, old earth creationism, and theistic evolution—preserves this human uniqueness. If not, what are the implications for the Christian who holds such a view?

Art as the Signature of Man: What can we learn at the Intersection of Aesthetics and Human Nature?

In a world where bananas duct taped to walls and “invisible” sculptures sell for thousands of dollars, is there anything art can teach us about what it means to be human? In what ways might art help us understand what it means to be made in God’s image? In this lesson we will consider the ways in which human nature and the arts intersect.

Marxism: What's the Big Deal?

Not content to remain a cautionary tale from the pages of history, Marxism is making a comeback under new management. Are all political systems created equal? And more importantly, are they all compatible with Christian principles?
