God Created Man In His Own Image:

Posted on 06/09/2014 11:30:28 AM PDT by Vinylly

If God created man in his own image did he create these too in his own image? These aliens have one head with two eyes,-though big, a small mouth and nose and two small ears, almost like us. They have two arms with hands, two feet with toes and a small body. But if they are from outer space, they are very much like us. Did we come from these aliens or did they come from us or did God create two planets that are nearly the same? Of course that depends on whether these images are real or just a hoax. http://science.nationalgeographic.com/science/space/solar-system/life-beyond-earth/

God had the flood wipe out all the demon and angel human hybrids. So I’m thinking hoax.

He created our souls His image and perhaps their souls as well.

And why do we suppose that He was referring to our bodies and not our SOULS?

“Image” is quite taken out of context. God’s “Image” in the context of Genesis 1:26 is not appearance, but in how Adam was designed and constructed. Since God is spirit and has not physical attributes, Adam could not ‘look like’ God, but was endowed with a spirit and reason, as opposed to animals which do not.

His many arms have hands.

The many hands of Vishnu do mighty works.

^^ Correct. It’s always frustrating when folks who have faint exposure to the scriptures try to make some profound argument form them, usually by reading something into the text that isn’t there.

Taking words of the Bible literally leads to ridiculous conclusions.
We’re obviously not identical to God. We do wrong things. God doesn’t. We are subject to the forces of nature. God subjects them to Him.

Non-Earth beings, if there are any, do not have to have 2 ears, 2 eyes, one nose, etc.

That also depends on how well you read the article. Here's the caption of the photo at the URL you provided:

Millions of people believe in aliens like this prop in the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico. There is no conclusive evidence of any life beyond Earth, but there is hope

The word of God is for mankind, who live on earth. It is instruction and teaching for us.

Are there other created beings on other worlds? The bible leaves the answer open. Most of the answers to that question are based on speculation and inferrence. People sometimes have a problem dealing with what the bible DOESN’T say.

G-d is spirit. Not “a spirit. Therefore our part is spirit and soul. Body? Well since G-d doesn’t have one ......

"Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary 1:26-28 Man was made last of all the creatures: this was both an honour and a favour to him. Yet man was made the same day that the beasts were; his body was made of the same earth with theirs; and while he is in the body, he inhabits the same earth with them. God forbid that by indulging the body, and the desires of it, we should make ourselves like the beasts that perish! Man was to be a creature different from all that had been hitherto made. Flesh and spirit, heaven and earth, must be put together in him. God said, Let us make man. Man, when he was made, was to glorify the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Into that great name we are baptized, for to that great name we owe our being. It is the soul of man that especially bears God's image. Man was made upright, Ec 7:29. His understanding saw Divine things clearly and truly; there were no errors or mistakes in his knowledge; his will consented at once, and in all things, to the will of God. His affections were all regular, and he had no bad appetites or passions. His thoughts were easily brought and fixed to the best subjects. Thus holy, thus happy, were our first parents in having the image of God upon them. But how is this image of God upon man defaced! May the Lord renew it upon our souls by his grace!" http://biblehub.com/genesis/1-27.htm

“Of course that depends on whether these images are real or just a hoax.”

Well, the caption on the photo says it’s a prop from a UFO museum, so what do you think?

Despite decades of searching, groups like SETI (the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) have come up with a big fat zero. According to evolutionists, it take billions of years with just the right conditions to produce life and billions more to produce intelligent life. Why would it be surprising if we are the first?

"In the image of God" does not refer to any particular quality of human beings. It refers to a purpose: To bear the image of God as His appointed rulers in a particular sphere, that being the physical earth (and possibly the physical universe as a whole, but that's speculative).

See Dr. Michael Heiser's paper on the subject for more details.

Shalom

The movie NOAH had to be of the stupidest movies I've seen in a long time. WHAT a waste of Russell Crowe's talent.

The flood scenes WERE spectacular.

Either way, does it matter to our salvation? Christ died once for all. Everything else is just speculation.

From http://www.vaticanobservatory.org/VO-NEWS/index.php/recent-news/vatican-observatory-main/vatican-observatory/item/153-vatican-lucifer.html:

***Vatican and Lucifer***

Written by Administrator

“There was another strange phone call today. Somebody was apparently just recently hurt by a misinformation which has been circulating on the web for two or three years. This calumny claims that the Vatican astronomers named some instrument or telescope “Lucifer”.

“It is fairly clearly a typical case of degradation of information. The truth of the matter is that the Vatican Observatory is a member of the Mount Graham International Observatory (MGIO) consortium, together with a number of other institutions from Europe and the USA. The MGIO comprises a large number of stake holders, most of whom have nothing to do with the Vatican Observatory or its telescope.

“How does this work? It is quite similar to share holders in a company. Supposing you had a six percent share in a company, while Mr XYZ had a four percent share. What could you do if Mr XYZ decided to name his pet hamster “Demon”?

“One of the stake holders in the MGIO is a group of European institutes who built an infrared camera and spectroscope, and named it “Lucifer”. So what happened? First, somebody reported that an instrument called “Lucifer” was installed on Mt Graham. Then somebody remarked that Mt Graham also hosts the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope, and that it is somewhat amusing that Mt Graham has both Vatican and Lucifer. Then the information somehow degraded and the slur was born: Vatican astronomers are supposedly friends with Lucifer...”
