How Does Your View Of Mankind Impact Your View Of Christ?


Episode #2:  The Doctrine of Man

Airing Date:  August 19th of 2011

Hosts:  Leif Halvorson, Matt Richard, Mike Hussey


Click Here To Listen to Episode #2
Synopsis
What happens to the person of Christ when we have an overly optimistic view of mankind?  What happens to the person of Christ when we have a Biblical view of mankind?


When we fail to clearly see or underestimate the depravity of mankind, everything gets messed up, especially our understanding and the role of Jesus in the Christian life.  If mankind is viewed as basically good with some bad habits, then Jesus becomes a helper or better yet... a life coach.  Jesus is reduced to a mascot who then simply cheers mankind on in this life.  

However, when we assess mankind in light of the scriptures we come to see that mankind's nature is always much darker and sobering than we usually believe it to be.  True, mankind is created in the image of God!  However, the fall of mankind in Genesis 3 marred the image making man not mostly dead but dead in sin.  A mere life coach or helper are not sufficient with this view of man.  Rather an all-powerful, all-knowing, sufficient savior is needed to deliver mankind from these bodies of sin and death!

How does God reconcile to himself fallen man?  Just how does this righteousness come to us.  Do we get righteousness by an injection or is it credited to our account?


On this episode of the Great Exchange the idea of the Atonement will be discussed.  Everything from Christ as Victor to Christ as Victim.  Furthermore, the tension between infused righteousness and imputed righteousness will be discussed.
