According to the Bible, I Am...

I saw a photo on Pinterest that I really have not been able to get out of my mind.  It is a picture of a little girl with a hand written poster with two columns.  One column states, "According to religion I am: -broken -flawed -sinful -dumb -weak -nothing" (sic.).  The other column states, "According to science I am: -full of wonder -smart -a great learner -beautiful -potential for greatness" (sic.).
