Is There A Human Nature?

The purpose of human life is to love and serve others and to be loved and served by them. Through a brief but insightful tour through classical philosophy, Modernity, and current cultural shifts, Dr. Willard explores the arguments for a human nature and the reasons for its supposed demise in American society. A sufficient living out of one’s human nature comes only in relationship to God. 

Is There A Human Nature?

"We have to stand up in such a way, and lead our lives, so that people will realize that there is something better in life than they had ever dreamed."  In this shockingly relevant talk from 2002, Dr. Willard shows us what it means to be human, including the purpose and nature of a human being, addresses the disappearance of moral knowledge and the impact it's had on the western world, shares Jesus's teachings on human nature, and concludes with practical ways we can become people who routinely and easily live the Great Commandment. The Way of Christ contains the body of moral knowledge for which the world is dying and we can become the guiding light for all of humanity.
