Imaging the ImageApril 07, 2014
by Scott Oliphint
This month we want to focus on our status as “image of God,” as we begin to think as well about its apologetic implications. Tenet 4 of our “Ten Tenets” says this:
Man (male and female) as image of God is in covenant with the Triune God, for eternity.
The Bible never gives us a definition of what “image of God” means. It uses the phrase in various contexts (e.g., Gen. 1:26-27, 9:6; 1 Cor. 11:7, 15:49; Eph. 4:24; Col. 3:10; James 3:9), but it is not concerned to define it for us. Yet “image of God” is what sets us apart from every other created thing. How could it be, at one and the same time, so central to who we are and yet without a precise definition?
