Bible Truths vs Bible Myths

By Arnold Gordon

Questions for Christians, Part 1.

The Image Of God

"And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his Own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." Genesis 1:26-27

€1. What was the image of God that he created man after?

€2. Was the image referenced, the physical human form of man?

€3. Was God a man? or in human form when he created man?

€4. Does not the scriptures say, "God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent:" Numbers 23:19 ?

€5. If the "Son" preexisted the creation, where was the Son when God created man in his own image?

€6. Does not the scriptures record, "Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;" Isaiah 44:24?

€7. If "God is a Spirit" John 4:24, according to the Son, did God have a physical flesh human body when he created man?

€8. If God had no physical flesh human body, what was the image he created man after?

€9. If the image God created man after was not physical human flesh, could the image referred to be an invisible image?

€10. Could it have been the image of the invisible God as referenced in Colossians 1:15, "who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:"

€11. Could the image God created man after be the image of the incorruptible God, as referenced in Romans 1:22-23? "Professing themselves to be wise they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things."

€12. If God therefore had no physical human flesh image when he created man, did God create man in his own incorruptible, invisible image?

Christianity has resorted to Anthropomorphism in its concept of God while the scriptures make it clear that God is immaterial, incorporeal and is a Spirit according to Jesus the son of the virgin Mary. Man has lowered the concept of God to be equal to himself, a man who is corruptible, corporeal­­in human form and substance. This concept of God is not substantiated by the scriptures of the Holy Bible. I speak of the King James version, of course!
