Are humans basically good, or basically bad? In the opening chapters of the bible, we see God create humanity, and proclaim them to be "very good", and yet just two chapters later, we see Adam and Eve fall into temptation and eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Tempation continues to follow humanity, and in this episode, Tim explores the three elements of tempation: Doubting the goodness of God, doubting the trustworthiness of God, and putting ourselves in the place of God.

What sets humanity apart from the animals? God made humans and animals; he gave them life. But humanity is importantly said to be made in the image of God. What does that mean? Can we find the image of God in the differences between humans and animals? Or in the relationships we have with each other and with God? Or perhaps the fact that we were placed by God to rule over his creation?

Tim investigates these ideas and more in this episode.
