    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.
