Man is the pinnacle of God’s creation and the only being on the earth made in God’s image. Every person, although endowed with the image of God, inherited a disobedient heart from Adam, the very first man. This disobedience, referred to in the Bible as sin, separates man from his Creator. Apart from Jesus, man is spiritually dead.
