After the Fall of humanity in Genesis 3, do people still bear the image of God?
Yes! Certainly sin has marred the image and defaced it, but the Fall did not erase the image of God in humanity. Even though we live in a fallen world, the value of human life persists to this day—because of the reality that people still bear the image of God. This abiding fact is the basis for the supreme value and dignity of all human life today (Gen. 9:6). James insists that the way we speak to people should reflect their value as image bearers of God (James 3:9). The implications of God creating Adam and Eve in His image continue to this day.
