Let "us" make man in our image does not boil down to "knowledge"...especi ally in light of the genesis account forbidding Adam from eating of the tree of "knowledge".<quoted text>
Very easily. God created humans, not more of Himself. We are weak, fragile little things that need all sorts of things just to be alive - and much more to really live.
We humans create things all the time, but nothing we create is anything like us. Ever.
Of course He knew it would happen. If our lives were perfect and needed nothing, we'd all still be in the garden of Eden, ignorant and naive.
No, but I see why you're confused.
What we know currently about malaria is besides the point.
God created us in his own image, which does not mean God has a head, a torso, two arms and two legs.
If I were to sum up God in one word, that word would be knowledge.
I believe that God wants us to gain more and more and more in our knowledge to help us become more "in his image".
So who is it that is confused here?
