"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4 

 

What is a Human Being?

Mar 3, 2019

Genesis 2:4-24 & Romans 12:1-2
So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.


What is the essence of humanity? I mean does a dog know he is a dog, and to that degree does he know what particular kind of dog he is? Yet, regardless of what Fido knows or doesn't know about his essence we would not say that he is any less of a dog because he is not fully conscious of the kind of breed that he is. Yet, we as humans in our consciousness have degrees of what we would say is behavior or patterns of thinking that is either is MORE or in face LESS human. God has created one of the most complex and befuddling things by creating the human brain and we haven't even begun to fully grasp all we can possibly do with them. Yet the Gospel is clear that somehow, we are to conform these bodies and minds into the likeness of the body and mind of Christ. Join us as we take a look at the theological interaction between the mind, body, and spirit of Being Human.
