Anthropology is the science which tells us that people are the same the whole world over - except when they are different.
What is the Doctrine of Humanity?
The Doctrine of Humanity, used interchangeably with Anthropology, is a field that melds art, theology, and science as it seeks to understand how God made man. The Doctrine of Humanity examines what it means to be intrinsically human. It wonders how sin has distorted human nature. It looks at both special and natural revelation as it studies what it means to be made in the image of God. It aims a critical, curious eye at culture to identify the difference between cultural dissonance and sin. A solid Doctrine of Humanity is essential for those who wish to pursue ministry.
