The single most defining characteristic of who man is, is what the Bible calls the Image of God, or, as theologians refer to it, the Imago Dei. At creation, the Bible declares, “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27).[1] All Christian theologians agree that man was created in the image of God, but they cannot seem to agree on what constitutes the image of God. Is it conscience? Is it exercising dominion? Is it morality? Is it spirituality? All of these, and many more ideas, have been suggested as constituting the Imago Dei in man. While we may not be able to state definitively all that is comprehended in the Imago Dei, at the very least we can make the following two observations, based on the broad context of Genesis 1-2:
  • The Imago Dei in man is that which differentiates him from the animals, since only man, and not the animals, are said to have been created in God’s likeness and image.
  • The Imago Dei in man is that in which there can be seen a correspondence between the nature of God and the nature of man.
