Big Idea: All humans are made in God’s image yet are corrupted by sin.

QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION AND REFLECTION
1) Are people basically good or bad or something in between?

2) Read Genesis 1:26-28. Survey all six days of creation and determine what makes human beings different from every other aspect of creation.
a) What is unique about humanity’s creation? What does this mean practically for how you view yourself and others?
b) What is unique about humanity’s calling? What does this mean practically for how you view your engagement with and work in the world?

3) Read Romans 1:18-2:3.
a) What appears to be at the root of all of these sins in this passage?
b) Why might we be tempted to call sins “mistakes” and why is this misleading?
c) According to Romans 2:1-3, even those who pass judgment on others are still guilty of sin. Why is this?
d) What are your earliest memories of understanding that you are a sinner?

4) Why is it important to hold both the image of God and the impact of sin in our minds? What does this change about our relationships with God and/or other people?
