What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to be an “image bearer”? What does it mean to “lose our humanity”, and what are the consequences of that. Most importantly, how does our view of human dignity affect how we live out our faith in our cultural moment?
There’s no question that human dignity is at the center of some of the most important topics in our cultural moment. But how should Christians be talking and engaging about topics involving human dignity, from abortion to immigration? In this episode of the podcast, Jonathan sits down with Daniel Darling of the ERLC to discuss this issue. Join Jonathan and Daniel as they answer these questions and more as they discuss how human dignity, justice, and the gospel fit together, how other views of human dignity borrow from the Christian faith, areas where the Church is leading the charge on the human dignity conversation, others where we have blind spots and need to grow, and how to move forward in a practical way.
Daniel Darling is the Vice President for Communications for the ERLC and is the author of several books including Teen People of the Bible, The Original Jesus, Activist Faith, and the book we discussed today, The Dignity Revolution. Dan speaks and preaches around the country and the host of the weekly podcast The Way Home.
