2. What does it mean to be created in God’s image?
- Like a child of a father
Genesis 5:1–3 (NIV)
This is the written account of Adam’s family line. When God created mankind, he made them in the likeness of God. He created them male and female and blessed them. And he named them “Mankind” when they were created. When Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image; and he named him Seth.
- Like an idol in a temple
Acts 17:24 (NIV)
The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands.
