Adam: less than perfect but still seeking after God.
This study is created specifically for men, can be used for personal or group use, and is full of thought-provoking questions.
Some people have high standards so high, in fact, that they try to be perfect. But only one man (besides Christ) has even had the option of being perfect, and he blew his chance shortly after he was created. Why? He gave in to temptations that seemed too good to resist. As a result of Adam s sin, we all live in a fallen world that is full of temptation and imperfection.
Yet God created man in his own image, and even though this image is now tarnished by sin, it is still intact. The question we will explore in this study is how to resist the many temptations that could potentially destroy our lives, and instead reflect the image of God in a way that honors him. For answers, we look to Adam, the first man to face this dilemma, and to Jesus, the only person since Adam who has lived a blameless life.
