Question 5

Since fallen people still bear the image of God, does this have some practical implications for us as Christians?

All people have worth before the Lord. We must reject racial supremacy, ethno-centrism, and sexism, and stop assessing people based on skin color, level of education, or class distinctions. We must endeavor to see people the way God sees them. We cannot impart dignity to any person. Since all human beings bear the divine image, our responsibility is to recognize the inherent dignity that people already possess.
