Pascal wrote: "What is man in nature? He is nothingness in regard of infinite, everything in regard to nothingness. He is in the middle between nothing and everything. Since then people speak about the two infinites, the infinite big, the stars, and the infinite small, the atoms.

What is man
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 1, 27
However, modern science has come to another infinite, the infinite of complexity. The summit is reached unequivocally be the human brain. The human brain has thousands of little cells which are connected together by synapses. There are unimaginable possibilities. This is a marvel of one thought.
What is man? He is the summit of nature. He is more than a whole of cells, he is a living soul, a being which is responsible and a person who can say: "I exist." He can enter into a relationship with God himself who is his creator. Man is also a fallen being in regard to his origin. The morality of man is getting worse. It is contradictory: Man is sometimes big and and dirt at the same time. His nature and his destiny are a mystery to man until God reveals himself to him.
However, God loves man and has revealed himself to him through Jesus. Yet to all who receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God (John 1, 12). He who believes is connected to Jesus, the son of God. God's plans for man are really extraordinary!
