Genesis 1:27

27    So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. [1]

                Through 5 days of creation, God has created all things, and declares them good. Now God turns his attention on man, and in verse 27 He turns His attention on created man. It says that He created man in His own image. But what kind of image was man created in? Was it in God’s form or features, His intellect? Certainty it was not in immortality because we have not existed in eternity’s past. Our likeness of God is in our ability to the visible head and monarch of the created world. God gave us dominion over His creation and the ability to rule with the authority He gives.
