Man's distinctives from the animals.

Post by Ironman » Tue Apr 03, 2018 10:13 pm

Someone started a thread on another Christian forum I occasionally visit and headed it;

Man's distinctives from the animals.

After reading 7 pages of mumbo jumbo, evolution, you name it, I was surprised no one came up with the obvious answer;

There is one simple answer to this thread;

Genesis 1:26, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."

John 1:3-4, V, 3, "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
V.4, In him was life; and the life was the light of men."

The distinction is, we are the created IMAGE and LIKENESS of God Himself. No other created being, animal, thing, even arc angels can make this claim.

Define image: a reproduction or imitation of the form of a person or thing;
Image definition, a physical likeness or representation of a person,
Likeness | Definition of Likeness by Merriam-Webster
Likeness definition is — copy, portrait; appearance, semblance; the quality or state of being like : resemblance.

Likeness definition and meaning | Collins English Dictionary
Likeness definition: If two things or people have a likeness to each other, they are similar to each other.
likeness | Definition of likeness in English by Oxford ...
Definition of likeness - the fact or quality of being alike.


Galatians 4: 16, Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

1 Cor. 15:39:


For ALL the promises of God in Him are YES, and in Him AMEN, unto the glory of God by us.

There is certainly nothing created like man. At least not here on earth. Some like to think apes are like man because of some similarities, but they are far from being like man.

I remember someone once saying that we evolved from apes and I asked them a most important question of WHY they stopped evolving? The question was not answered. The simple things confound the wise. :mrgreen:

Good answer - If they evolved then why did they stop evolving - I like that.

The fault in Bible complications is not with God or the Bible, but with men who refuse to believe what God says and think we have to interpret what He says in order to get the meaning. Dake Bible -Mark 11:17 note

What do Jewish Scholars say about this??I am going to check into it.


There are Religious Jews and there are Secular Jews.

25%% of Nobel Prize winners were Jewish.

Which is quite amazing.

Reverend Dake wrote extensively on this in the DARB and GPFM.

Must have been something with the dome over the flat earth that stopped their evolution :shocked!: :mrgreen: +goofy

According to what I've learned from the most lauded modern scientists, gravity is the reason God isn't necessary. Gravity is the cause of creation and the proof that God does not exist.
