Hellenism, the dominant worldview in the first century, stands in stark contrast to the truths of God found in the Bible.
Human beings are the image of gods.
|Only God is God. He is the Lord of the Universe, the creator of mankind.|
The human mind is the greatest source of wisdom.
|God is the Ultimate source of all Wisdom|
|Human beings determine truth; what is right and wrong.||God, the source of truth, has given us the standards to determine what's right and wrong.|
|Human acomplishment is the goal of life.||The goal of life is to glorify and serve God.|
|The human body and what human beings create is the highest standard of beauty.||Human beings create beauty because they are made in the image of God.|
