We are seeing several foundational truths from Genesis 2 about how to understand life, theology, Scripture, society, religion, and culture. Last week, we saw the first truth, that we are built for relationships. This week we see the second foundational truth, which may be the most important one of all.
If you want to see how today’s foundational truth is applied to our understanding of theology, Scripture, and culture, I highly recommend you get my book on the Atonement from Amazon. It’s called The Atonement of God, and in it, I present 10 areas of theology that were affected in my own life when I came to understand the truth I am about to present to you today.
The Text of Genesis 2:19
Genesis 2:19. Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name.
In this discussion of Genesis 2:19 we look at:
- A review of the 7 key activities of God
- How God instructs us to imitate Him in carrying out these 7 activities
- The foundational truth that humans were made to imitate
- Why imitation has boundaries and dangers
- Buy The Atonement of God on Amazon
- Genesis 1:26 – The Seven Activities of God
