In His Image: Where Our Identity in Christ Meets the World
This world often misinterprets our Christian worldview as harsh and hateful when we uphold biblical values about the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman, about abortion, about gender identity and roles, and about extramarital sex. We all know that God instructs us through His word that abortion, homosexuality, assisted suicide, sex outside of marriage, transgenderism, and the “if it feels good, do it” mindsets are wrong. But how do we respond to those who believe otherwise? How do we display the love of Christ to them? In this series, we will explore the “worldview that drives [this] secular ethic” to “be able to engage intelligently and compassionately on all of today’s most controversial moral challenges" (Pearcey 9). Our goal is to be firmly grounded in our identity as God’s image bearers in order to be the aroma of Christ to the world even (or especially) when the world disagrees with us.
