My wife and I were talking the other day (well, several months ago), and what God looks like came up. I think she thinks God is like the bearded man in the sky. I told her I think God has no such form, that I think of God as existence.
I mentioned Genesis 1:27 (And God created man to His own image, to the image of God He created them, male and female He created them), and suggested that here image is referring to not physical appearance, but rather that we humans are capable of thought and love and creating things like God (well… a poor shadowy imitation, but anyway).
I have two questions:
- How do you interpret Genesis 1:27?
- What do you think of the image of God?
