Image of God Leaflets Series I

We read in the first chapter of the Bible that God “created man in His own image” (Genesis 1:27).  Many maintain that all human history revolves around this truth.  The Judeo-Christian belief in the unique dignity of human beings is at the very foundation of Western civilisation.

The 2010 Canberra Declaration therefore states:

“The values that we have cherished and sought to strengthen are in large measure founded on the Judeo-Christian belief system. The many freedoms, advantages, opportunities, values and liberties which characterise the West owe much to the growth of Christianity with its inherent belief in the dignity of the human person as created in the image of God and the code of behaviour that flows from this belief.”

and

“We believe that all human life, being made in the image of God, has intrinsic and equal value from conception to life’s natural end.”

‘Image of God’ leaflets relate the doctrine of man as created in the image of God to various issues we face in Australia today. Each leaflet seeks to apply the truth of God’s Word to each issue with quotes from prominent Christian leaders. Because each issue represents a spiritual battle each leaflet finishes with a prayer.

Series I is dedicated to Sophie Scholls who, at the age of 21, lost her life for distributing leaflets in Hitler’s Germany. You can download this summary leaflet and any of the 21 ‘Image of God’ leaflets by clicking the link. Series II is now being written.
