- Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
God, who is referred to as “us,” created man in the image of God and created male and female. This is definite Biblical evidence testifying to the existence of God the Mother as well as God the Father.
However, some insist that if there exist God the Father and God the Mother, Adam and Eve should have been created at the same time, but according to Genesis 2:20, since God created Adam first and made Eve later from Adam’s rib, Adam is the only man created in the image of God, so only God the Father exists.
Their insistence is to distort the words of God by confusing two different matters which are purpose and process.
For example, a person is going to make a desk and a chair. No matter what he makes first or whether he makes them with the same wood or different wood, his goal is to make a desk and a chair. Such matters as ‘What am I going to make first?’ and ‘What material am I going to use?’ are just a process to make what he wants.
Likewise, “In the image of God he created man,” is the purpose of His creation. And “male and female he created them,” is the result of the creation. God’s creating Eve from Adam’s rib after making Adam first with the dust and His breath, is the process of His creating Adam and Eve.
No matter whom God made first, no matter how He created them, it is just a process to fulfill the purpose of the creation“ God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”
If Adam is the only man created in the image of God as they insist, the words of God, “Let us . . .” do not make sense and God should have said, “In the image of God he created male.” They deny the purpose of God’s creation“ In the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” just because God created male first in the process of the creation.
Their insistence does not make sense as if someone says that there was no purpose of making a chair because the desk was made first. The Church of God believes in God the Father and God the Mother according to the testimony of the Bible.
