Didn't you know that The Christian God is 3 personalities in one? The father, son(jesus), and holy spirit. That's who "us" is.

Quote the entire passage.

Let US make man in OUR image.

What is the image of man?

1. SOUL = The seat of emotions. God the Father.
2. BODY = The Word was God and the Word was made flesh. God the Son
3. SPIRIT = The breath within all living creatures. The Holy Spirit.

There was one time and one time only that two members of the Trinity of God make an appearance on earth at the same time.

ThERE'S NO SUCH THINGS AS OTHER GODS PRIOR TO LUCIFER SAYING, "I WILL BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH". This was why lucifer was kicked out of heaven.

There is only one God (capital G). After mankind sinned, there came many gods (small g).

People that don't know squat will flip squat out of ignorance.

OR

People that do know, try to subvert the Word for demonic means.

AND

People that do know, try to explain to fools and demons. FORGET IT. One can never bring a fool and demon out of darkness

TheAnswer aka satan is a liar and you know Goliath was the product of fallen angels inbreeding with humanity.

Genesis 6. The SONS of God saw the daughters of MEN and took them wives.

It is in this chapter where Greek Mythology is no longer a myth but a reality. It is in this chapter that the first abnormal birth was recorded (giants).

Mixing angels with humanity produced super beings with unusual powers. Thus, Greek gods.

The Apostle Paul and Barnabus was in Greece on a missionary journey. These two men were called Mercury and Jupiter by the Greeks.

Look at the original version of the Bible which is Hebrew. Elohim was replaced by God in the Bible. Therefore every where God appears replace it with Elohim. So what does Elohim mean? Elo means God, "IM" in Hebrew makes their words plural, therefore, Elohim means "Gods". Now translate and the passage makes sense. They were referring to Gods creating man in their image. We have to remember the old testament originated from Bablyonian and Sumerian text and was rewritten and inserted in the Bible at the council of Nicea in 325 AD. There were many versions of the Bible for the next 1300 years until King James of England did another consolidation of the Bible and made the King James version. 400 years have passed and once again we have numerous versions and translations. The Bible has to be interpreted because so much is left out. These same Gods are the same people mentioned several chapters later that were called the fallen angels that created Golith and the Caninites. The question is if Angels had sex with Humans, that means they have the same plumbing and chromosomes and have to be the same breed of species as humans.

And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."

So why does this verse not only say 'Us' but also say 'The Man' when Eve ate from tree as well?? The Genesis story is one of the most difficult passages to understand but there is more stuff about the Bible that I find interesting as well.

The so called Angels cannot be much different from Humans tho since their descendants where all in the form of Humans. The only differences are the sizes?? It sounds like a mutation.

this is a good answer. the bible also uses the word adonai which is a plural form of 'God'. what's interesting is that the singular adon is very similar to the egyptian god aton (or aten). which is an indication (there's actually an involved argument for this) that hebrew monotheism may have come from akhenaten egypt.

i think when the bible is talking about the 'sons of god and daughters of men' story, what they are describing are aryans, or the aryan race. the god/men story is part of the aryan creation myth. you can find it in roman, greek, norse, germanic, celtic, slavic, iranian, and indian mythology.

nope..the sons of G-d" is a title often used at the time for men of Israel and the title "the daughters of men" was in reference to gentile women.

That is a misintrpetation of text...clearly we would have evidence of these decsnadants bones around us if that myth was true...anyway Jesus is clear in the New Testament that angels don't have seuxal organs...for what..they don't need to reproduce...
Mark 12:25
When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.

You cannot be serious... "son of G-d" is throughout the Hebrew Bible..it's a title for the men of Israel and "daughters of men" is a title for gentile women...hence why Jesus was also known as the only begotten Son of G-d...angel/men children is a myth...or else we would have evidence of their offsprings' bodies or some would even be still among us....you not claiming now angels have the same dna make up as humans would you..as they are other species?

But this is talking about Genesis, when Adam and Eve were the only people..God made Adam first- put and 2 together.
