Is there any Image of God?
Has anyone seen the God or the image of God?
The Word “Image of God” has been used in the Bible many times and many are confused about the Image of the God. The word starts from the Book of Genesis in the Bible. When we read the verse (Genesis 1:26) which says that “Let us make the man in our own image and likeness so that the man can rule over the other living creatures of the earth.”
So, the question that appears up after reading the above verse is that does the God look like us, or humans look like God. It’s Little confusing.
Then, my answer to the above question is yes; it can be possible that God looked like the human being. And in the (1 Corinthians 3:16) “Our body is the Temple of the God and his Spirit dwells in us.” That means God dwells in the humans through his spirit. Like the spirit of God was inside always which never dies.
Why God Forbids to have an Image of God or any kind of Idols:
If we go according to the Bible, then God forbids the humans to create any image or idol of God. I can provide you many verses in the Bible which tell us not to create an image of Idols of God, here is the list of Verses which is about the Idol Worship.
Although, I want to share my opinion that why God forbids to have the idols, images or other related things because God has already created his own image which he calls the “Temple of God” in the New Testament (1 Corinthians 3:16). It does not mean that we should start worshiping humans, but it shows the closeness of human with God.
God did not create any Angel in his own images, God did not create any animal or any other creature in his own images, but he chooses the Man to be the image of God.
Why did God choose to create Humans in the Image of God?
Another question which comes to the mind of many Bible scholars, pastors, and preachers. And Everyone has his or her own opinion.
But What does the Bible say?
Bible Doesn’t clearly state that why God created the humans in own image.
But If you believe the Bible then (Jeremiah 1:5)
This verse Proves that God knew all the things about the humanity and that’s why God chose the humans to create them in his own image.
There might be some reasons, but I have limited knowledge. But I will share some of my Opinions also. As God Chose the humans because many of the amazing creations like Angels rebelled against him. As in the Verse (Isaiah 14:12-17)
