Speaker Series: Dr. Benjamin L. Smith on “How the Modern World Lies about Human Dignity”

September 24, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“How the Modern World Lies about Human Dignity”

Historical Christianity defines human dignity according to the Biblical teaching that man is made in God’s image, but since the Enlightenment this view has been consistently challenged by various secular philosophies. Dr. Ben Smith explains why the secular alternatives to Christianity fail, and what this means for men and women in the modern world.
