Explain in your own words the meaning of a human person is a being-in-need of God and a-being-toward God.
The human person is fundamentally a creature of God and not a casual product of blind and arbitrary matter or the construction of social engineers.
In essence, the human person proceeds from the idea that God has for him and develops in the context of time and history. In knowledge and will, he reflects and represents in the world the truth and the goodness of God. The human person thus grows through thought and work, through spiritual attitudes and moral conviction. So man, from the beginning, is a being of culture, of the sciences, and of the theoretical and practical arts. Without original sin, there would have been only integral development; after, however, and according to our redemption in Christ, remains the continuing battle against destructive power and sin.
