Human Nature

People are created in God's image. This sets us off from the animals. People have the capacity to think about higher order concepts like good and evil and to make moral decisions which the animals cannot do. Mankind has the capacity to act both in a great manner or to be utterly evil. So how can we explain the capacity of people to act in such contradictory ways? The questions takes us back to the nature of what human beings are. What sets us apart from the animals is having been created in God's image. We are capable of higher order thinking that involves decision-making that includes the moral issues in life. Christianity explains the apparent contradictions in human behavior as a part of the fallen human nature of mankind. We are capable of both good and evil. The following video clip describes this nature in more detail.
