Weekly Episode 33 Topic: The Human Person (two part podcast) Title: What it means to be human (part 1) Description: Mike and Charles discuss what it means to be human and being created in the image of God. Host: Michael Davis Guest: Charles Catterall Producer and Editor: Mary Anne Funk Summary: To be human is to be in this universal family and within in this universal family of humanity, it means we are all created. God created all of us. To be human is to be a created human being, made in the image of God. To be human is to be wounded by sin To be human means we have a universal responsibility to receive and give healing Four aspects of being human: Image of God imprinted upon us To be human is to be a being in relation with that relationship with God Just as God is a social being in himself, God made us to be social in family and in community To be a caretaker of the planet. Universal aspect of being human: What ever applies to one human, applies to all humans. Creation – We are all made in His image and it doesn't matter what your status is in this world. Sin – Sin as a deep wound in the human person. Every human being is wounded. We all have a tendency to look at others as though they are not worthy. Mike addresses how the homeless are looked upon as homeless because of their sin Charles discusses what happens in our relationships with each other when we don't see each other in the way we are made: with infinite value and worth. Healing and Mercy What God has to offer us is grace for our weak will and wounded soul. If we received healing and mercy, we are expected to help others in that healing and mercy. View each other as wounded people not with judgement and categorizing .
