    Genesis 1:26, And GOD said "le us make man in our image, after our likeness.
    My problem is with the word "us" and "our". My question is, does these two words imply that God was not creating the world alone? That means there were others with him? If yes who were those with him?

    God is great, GLORY TO HIS NAME!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What happen to the man and woman God created in Genesis 1:27?
  • Dan
    It is kind of amazing to compare this with the Prose and Poetic Eddas where the brothers Odin, Vili and Ve killed the giant Ymir and created the world from his bones, the oceans from his blood and the sky above from his skull. The first man and woman, were created from two trees and called Ask and Embla. From them sprang the races of man. Almost identical storyline, just a more colorful version

    I see God, Lord God and Lord as 3 very different people in Genesis. A mistake as a child, I carried into my adulthood life.
