What’s Man’s Mission?

I receive Cornwall Alliance‘s e-newsletters and today’s main article had this to say at the end:

“The doctrines of Genesis 1–3 are the very foundation of the Bible, and at the center of those doctrines are those of Genesis 1:27–28:

  • Verse 27: the essence of man—the image of God, male and female.
  • Verse 28: the mission of man—to fill and rule the Earth.”                          

Is it really man’s ‘mission’ to fill and rule the Earth?  Didn’t Jesus give us the Great Commission which is to share the Gospel and make disciples?



  1. That’s the trouble with Reconstructionist/dominion theology. They forget the true mission of Christians.
