- Anne Hodges-Copple - Sermon Untitled (October 22, 1995)
Sermon start time: (Part 1) 20:08. Sermon end time: (Part 1) 41:31.
At its core, this sermon is about free will v. predestination, as Hodges-Copple critiques a social science study on the similarities of the lives and characteristics of twins, separated at birth, to show that even a rascal like Jacob – a rascal, whose capabilities for harm are no less or greater than our own - even Jacob is created in the image of God and we are all sinners; she wonders what behavioral scientists might think of human behavior if Christians acted like Christians, responding to the call that God will wrestle us, if we allow it. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Key quotation: "Maybe the raw stuff of selfhood is too hard, too mysterious, too important, to be sent over purely to social science."
