People are made in the image of God, and to be like him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by a tendency to disobey God. That disobedience is called sin, and it separates human beings from God. If that sin is not resolved in this life, that separation extends past this life into eternity.
