The Bible always brings us to the place of truth. Truth is how things really are. Truth is the state of reality from an unchangeable viewpoint. Only God has that sure and unchangeable viewpoint.
This viewpoint is important when we view ourselves and the people around us. The Bible teaches clearly that God created human beings in His image. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 (ESV) It is notable that God forbade any depiction of Himself through any of the created order. 4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Exodus 20:4 (ESV) That is the reason when God chose to express Himself most clearly to the world, He came to this earth as a human being, the Lord Jesus Christ. 15 He [Jesus Christ] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.
Colossians 1:15 (ESV) Only as the creature who God chose to bear His image could He, to the fullest extent possible, reveal Himself to the world.
The Bible also reveals to us that something happened to taint that image of God within us.
