Man differs from Earth’s other creatures…

Man’s distinguishing characteristic is that he bears the image of God. This natural image illustrates six distinct ways in which man differs from Earth’s other creatures. Human beings possess spiritual, personal, self-conscious, and rational components. Similar to God they are volitional, relational, immortal, and powerful—unlike any other creatures.
