This is truth. When God said lets make man in our likeness and in His image, this simply means the way he imaged you and I in His Mind before he created us. In His likeness meaning the way he liked. This is why you yourself look absolutely nothing like me. We look nothing like God for He is spirit wich makes sense to say that God created us all in his image. His image meaning the way he visioned every one of us fat skinnt, short, tall, black, white. For example... before a building is built, the builder first draws it in his image the way he likes. The same way a fashion designer would design different clothes. GOD the designer and WE the clothes.

In the biggining God created man in his own image to see that Adam was lonely he took some of Adam parts created Eve, that means we both bind by him in marriage. That 's the multiplication of ppl will be even today it 's existing b coz of God who made us. Let 's worship him he made man and breath in him, Glory to God

if god created us in his emage why aren 't we gods


Timothy's comment on 2014-07-05 11:58:00:

Genesis 1 27 is just one of the verses that say 's God created man. God created both male and female. We are not our own but we belong to God. After all God did create us. We did not come from something that crawled out of the ocean and evolved. We were created by God for God.


Alex Paculanang's comment on 2014-05-13 15:11:30:

Please, let me know if there 's other female before Eve, since Gen.1 27 28, "God blessed them and commanded them to be fruitful and increase in number ". Thank you

GOD allowed me to see what is written because of my faith but I cannot share perspective without being hit by opinions. The flood of Noah did not last 40 days and 40 nights people over almost a year and a Half.


Daniel's comment on 2014-03-11 00:38:24:

Yea Jesus said in beginning God created men and women so man separate from his father and his mother and will be one flash so no one allow to separate Them


Eric's comment on 2014-03-10 09:29:04:

I think that when we try to come up with a human explanation for everything written in the Bible we remove the element of faith in our lives There is much that can be explained There is some that cannot Have faith and God will reveal to your heart His truth and you will experience His freedom


Sheila Thom's comment on 2014-02-18 08:36:31:

God created man in his own image so that he should have domion over everythin its just unfortunate that man do not realise the potential God gave him the power to heal the power to overcome and the power to authority


Goodwill's comment on 2013-12-28 11:49:20:

the bible informs us- subtly so, perhaps- that there already existed what it claims was created by God (i.e. the dark deep waters over which the spirit of God moved).
With the water there must have been containment of same (most possibly some earth)because the water cannot have been suspended.


Allen's comment on 2013-12-22 01:14:29:

When the verse states "male and female created He them", it was speaking of creating man in His image as a spirit, for God is a spirit, and must be worshipped in spirit and in truth. So as a spirit, man could not subdue and have dominion (rule) over the physical manifestion of God's will (earth), but could as a living, breathing organism.

@ George Mbui:
" let us make man in our image and likeness, my question is, who else was with God in this time,of mans creation? Asist me on this please.

three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


Meschella's comment on 2013-11-20 16:37:01:

it dose not explain how others was made


Andrea's comment on 2013-10-11 19:00:28:

Hi Liz, I would like to answer your question as to who Cain married. Because Eve was the mother of all living (Adam actually named his wife after they sinned and were kicked out of the garden) Cain could have only married his sister. This actually isn't too hard to swallow. In the beginning there were no genetic mistakes in the gene pool and for the first 2,000 years marrying close relations wouldn't have caused much of a problem with offspring. God only forbid it in the time of Moses. I believe it was for health reasons and of course some close relations would have been evil in his sight. Like a son marrying his mother. The Egyptians didn't regard the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob so they suffered many birth defects as they continued to marry close relations. Consider that Abraham married his half sister and God did not condemn him. There was no law against it. We literally are all related and go back to Noah and his three sons. The Bible says that from Noah's three sons came the nations of the world.


George Mbui's comment on 2013-09-09 13:40:57:

Bible says, God made man in his image, the same bible says " let us make man in our image and likeness, my question is, who else was with God in this time,of mans creation? Asist me on this please.


Henry's comment on 2013-09-08 06:14:03:

God created man in His image and likeness...this construes to mean we 're met to be as Him both in spiritual and physical form. It's agreed that we made from the dust but the breathe of life given to man and the freewill to distingush the right from wrong make man takes after God. When we do the right thing, we exhibit the perfect nature of Him.


Liz's comment on 2013-08-03 20:38:56:

Who did Cain marry??? this is a big question to all Christians...
