the image of god
The Image of God
  • With a partner, use the textbook (p80) to compare the image of God in the Old Testament with the image of God in the New Testament.
  • The study of creation is important because we humans are part of creation
    • And all that we experience, including Divine Revelation.
  • It helps us to understand our relationship with God and our purpose. (Think of the Grand Designer).
  • Creation is holy because God made it.
    • Humans create by assembling what already exists
    • God creates out of nothing (Think of First Cause)

creation and science
Creation and Science
  • Did the world come into being by God creating as the book of Genesis states? Or through the process of evolution over millions of years?
  • The Catholic Church says that they can go together.
  • Faith & Reason work together.
  • The Bible is not a science book, and a science book is not a source of Divine Revelation.
    • God’s revelation tells us what we can’t learn through science. & God’s word cannot contradict His own creation.
  • The Catholic Church supports the natural sciences in their task of knowing God’s creation better.
  • And does not oppose the theory of evolution,as long as it doesn’t deny God as Creator and infusing our first parents (Adam & Eve) with an immortal soul
original justice original sin
Original Justice & Original Sin
  • Original Justice: The original harmony between:
    • Humans and God
    • Humans and the created world
    • Humans and each other
  • Read Genesis 3
  • Original Sin, corrupted original justice, and is the selfishness that is innate in humanity.
    • All humanity (except Jesus and Mary) suffers from original sin before baptism because of the first sin.
    • We also experience a temptation and inclination toward sin – concupiscence.
      • Pizza example
  • Protoevangelium(Gen 3:15) : “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers. He will strike at your head, and you will strike at his heel.”
  • God promises to send a Redeemer
the truths of faith in genesis
The Truths of Faith in Genesis
  • God created out of nothing at the beginning of time.
  • Time itself was created by God.
  • God created human beings – in whatever way humans came to be in history.
  • God gave Adam and Eve rational souls
  • Humans are descendants of Adam & Eve
  • Humans participate in creation
  • Adam and Eve were commanded to be obedient to God
  • They sinned against this command
  • The fall from innocence is called original sin
  • At the time of the fall, God promised a Redeemer.
