Students at Liberty University are faced with a variety of contradictory perspectives on the nature of humanity. Given such secular and non-Christian perspectives, each student should be prepared to articulate and defend an orthodox, evangelical Christian perspective on the doctrine of humanity, with special attention given to the doctrines of the imago Dei and original sin.
