Scriptures represent man as a person and is therefore capable of making moral choices.

Scriptures also indicate that, man is is God's special creation that was created by Him due to four main purposes in view:

1.To be specially relate to God, to have special fellowship with God and hence to satisfy God's heart.

For man to do this, God created him in his image and likeness.

The Bible says, then God said, "Let Us make man in our image after our likeness and let him have dominion over the animals and over the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth {Genesis 1:26}


2.man was created to have dominion over the rest of the creation.

God would give him unlimited dominion by the submission of man to the rule and dominion of God. Man was to be in authority over the latter


3.Man was called to subdue the earth, to till the garden garden and keep it.

God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the whole earth and subdue it; and have dominion over every living that moves upon the earth" {Genesis 2:28}.

"The Lord took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it." {Genesis 2:15}

In order to subdue, man was to work hard .

God never intended that man should be lazy.

God has always abhorred laziness.


4.Man was created to obey God.

If man disobeyed God, he would also lose his power over the rest of creation.

Obedience is always tested by commandments.

The bible says, "And God commanded the man saying, you may freely eat of every tree of the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die," {Genesis 2:16-17}

So everything was centered around obedience.

Man could obey or disobey, the choice was his.

He was given freedom by God to do as he liked

Even today, man has freedom of choosing to do good or bad basing on how much he obeys or disobeys God respectively.
