Man, the great contradiction

Image of God  . . . glorious - Genesis 1:26-27, Psalm 8:3-8
Free Will - Genesis 2:16-17
Fallen & Corrupted - Genesis 3:7-13, Jeremiah 17:9, Romans 3:23

Cultural Connection  . . . coming to terms with man's identity

Value >>>equality>>>rights
"We hold these truth to be self evident that all men are created equal, and theat they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights" - Declaration of Independence

Acts 17:26

Hedging against man's corruption . . . separation of powers
