This is why God created a universe fit for human life, and why he laid down guidelines for how to live our lives. According to Christianity, each one of us is created for communion with God; God wants to know us, to love us, and to rejoice with us. Examples in the Bible are Proverbs 19: 21 and Ephesians 3: 20. The most basic principle of the Christian moral life is the awareness that every person bears the dignity of being made in the image of God. He has given us an immortal soul and through the gifts of intelligence and reason enables us to understand the order of things established in his creation.
Romans 1:20 says “that the creation has been seen and understood because of God’s invisible qualities, divine nature and His eternal power so that men may not have an excuse.” It, therefore, follows that God is seen through His creation. He has made everything showing mercy to those who spit on His face that He is the same God that created everything by the power of His word. People who have seen His glory through His creation have no excuse before Him for they have seen and experienced yet rejected Him (Frank, 2013). Our Human Identity According to Paul, Christians should find their human identity in knowing Jesus and their true nature. Genesis 1:27 says “that we are made in God’s image” and according to Romans 7:25, “are joined to the father in spiritual union through Jesus Christ.”In Him, we find who we are because of the fellowship we have with Him.
27 The first sentence of this quotation alludes to the theme of narrative power. Only one tale can be told, and this tale legitimizes or brings to reality only one waking world ("no other dream nor other waking world"). The second section of the quotation offers a hint as to what kind of catastrophe might have struck the world. On the road that the boy and the man travel together, no "godspoke men" exist. The term "godspoke men" may allude to prophets, which arguably align with Ely's statement (see the seventh quotation below) later in the book.

The review of the book, “Knowing Jesus”; I will show how the author, Christopher J. H. Wright explains how understanding Jesus, one must understand the Old Testament and it’s narratives that paint a picture of the one who prophets elude to as the one who will fulfill the law, by delivering Israel. In doing so, using Israel as the prototype of God’s mission to provide salvation to them and to all nations. Prophetical narratives that paint pictures of one, who is destined to be the savior of God’s chosen people, Israel, and all mankind. The crescendo of events in the Old Testament that takes the reader through time, places, and events that provides credence to who Jesus really was and his purpose here on the earth.

In this theory there are two forms known as the governmental and the satisfaction. The governmental contends that the work of Christ met the demands of the law and cause humans to desire a divine government making their forgiveness safe.

The second is the remedial theory, where God, enters humanity by incarnation to eliminate sin through an ethical process of the life of Jesus and His death and making humans one with Him. Finally, the “Socinian” or moral influence, which claims that Jesus influences people to live better
In pursuit of knowledge and technology, society begins to lose a sense of humanity. The 1818 gothic novel, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and 1982 science fiction film, Blade Runner directed by Ridley Scott although composed over one hundred years apart contain the same concepts on the nature of humanity. Through context and a variety of film and literary techniques both composers were able to convey their purpose of a cautionary warning about the consequences of playing God. This was achieved through the dislocation of the natural world and mans attempt to play God. The texts present a view that questions the ethics of science which progress is unchecked.
