Discussion for Genesis 1

    Adam and his wife were driven from the garden, because what they did to their character and nature by sinning, made them unfit for the presence of God. God made life on earth, male and female; God identifies Himself in the masculine, but is Spirit: "That which is of the earth, is earthy...there is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body." They do not marry in heaven, but are like the angels.

    Candace, The image and likeness of God is His character and nature, and about our being replications of Him in our conduct and course in life, according to His words.

God gives us commandments because He is the Author of life, and He knows all!

My research is that it was not an apple tree; and there was a reason that Adam and Eve clothed theirselves after; for then there was an image of less pure, I can say, and that was the beginning of man thinking for himself. There was a reason why there was also a tree of life; and via of that tree, we etc....

    Hi Canace Kim

    I do not know much about emails, do not know your email but does it matter whether God is male or female/ God is God. He did however create man first and woman came from man or something like that; and the image is not really male or female. When i look at an image, I do not look at the sex of the image.
