"Man as Imago Dei in the Thought of Herman Bavinck." This message will explicate key ideas in the teaching of the Dutch theologian Herman Bavinck, regarding the essential unity of humanity, the necessary value of the incarnation of Jesus Christ, and the destiny of humanity. These notions continue to play an important role in preaching the gospel, in Christian living, and in the church's hope for the future of the world, according to Dr. Kloosterman, ethics consultant for Worldview Resources International of St. John, Indiana.
Dr. Kloosterman's second lecture is "Cultural Mandate and Great Commission: An Integrationist Model," will answer how Genesis 1:26-31 and Matthew 28:18-20 are related. This message will open up these passages with a view to enhance understanding of the integration of nature and grace, of creation and redemption, and of time and eternity, all of which can be expressed as "the church's calling to missional cultural obedience."
