    On Genesis 1:26, God said "let us make man in our image, after our likeness"... God is Spirit . His image is spirit, He made us spirit, only human. Job 32:8; I Corinthians 2:11, Psalms 51:10. verse 29, he talked to them as spirit to spirit
    Genesis 2:7 God formed man, and breathe into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul. (not the woman yet) v.20 then he formed the woman.

    To Felicia But he said Let us make man in our image HE told them to go preach the gospel to all the world baptizing them in the name of the Father Son and the Holy Ghost sounds like three different persons to me one thing for sure Gods word is good
