“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

It's only sin if you know it's wrong before you do it.

No it means humans have the likeness of God not the other way around

"Thou oh lord are in the mist of us and we are called by thy name leave us not"
"God created mankind in his own image"
Does that mean god has the likeness of humans , and "we are called by thy name" mean that god is human

Joseph, as it pertains to whether or not the land of Nod was inhabited/uninhabited, in my opinion we cannot draw a conclusion one way or another. However, I believe that we can only go by what has been revealed to us in the written word of God.
As Christians, we must believe and receive the word of God by faith. Hebrews 11:3 says, " through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."
We will never be able to fully comprehend the word of God by our own human reasoning or intellect. 1Corinthains 2:14, "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." (Understood)
We must allow the Holy Spirit to teach us and give us wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of Scripture to avoid erroneous beliefs which ultimately leads to erroneous doctrine.
In regards to the creation of Adam, again we must adhere to what is written.
It is evident in Genesis 2:7, that Adam became a "living soul", he was human. We were created in the image and likeness of God, in that we are triune beings: spirit, soul and body, as God who is a Spirit, is the Father, the Word, (that was made flesh, John 1:14), and the Holy Spirit. (1John 5:7)
Adam was the first man who was created from the dust of the ground or the earth by God. But Christ who is called the second Adam, is the one who is, and the giver of life. He is the firstborn of the New Creation of God.
Finally, I would like to express the danger of leaning to our own understanding. It is my sincere prayer and desire that you have a personal encounter with the Holy Spirit of God who will lead you and guide you into all truth!

Sorry i quoted Malecki 3 instead of Malecki 2v15.
Joseph Burger's comment on 2020-08-20 23:17:46:
Thanks Donna for your honest reply about Genesis 2v20. But unfortunately i'm still in the dark about the answer (Gen.2v20): The land Nod was mensioned during proses of Creation. Can Nod be identified as (land) without inhabitants (citizens).
Secondly, the operation done on Adam could have been SPIRITUALLY, meaning preaching the Gospel to mankind, the intention to bring forth Spiritual BIRTH.Reason being that Genesis introduced to us God as a SPIRIT. My views are supported by [Malecki 3]. That chapter identifies (God) as a Spirit therefore the SPIRITUAL BEING was supposed to be in the IMAGE of the CREATOR (GOD).
In the beginning His Spirit was dwelling upon the waters/the deep.
Does that indicates that identifying Adam one should imagine a Spiritual Rehabilitated Being that was formed out of humankind. [Gen.1v27-28].
NB. Adam as described in Genesis was called by Jesus Christ as the 1st Adam without (the life giving Spirit).
Lastly, to imagine a Spirit (God) physically performing an operation on a body, unless God was in the likeness of human. Spiritual "operation", to rehabilitate the soul of humankind, that sounds more acceptable.
The above are my honest personal views, unless otherwise convinced.

Wesley's Commentary for Genesis 2:20
2:18-20 It is not good that man - THIS man, should be alone - Though there was an upper world of angels, and a lower world of brutes, yet there being none of the SAME RANK of beings with himself, Adam might be truly said to be alone. And every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air God brought to Adam - Either by the ministry of angels, or by a special instinct that he might name them, and so might give a proof of his knowledge, the names he gave them being expressive of their inmost natures.
There were other beings: God's created angels; and the evil angels who followed Lucifer. God chose neither.
He chose to perform surgery on Adam, with one of his ribs. If my memory is right: men have one less rib than women do. Someone medical can prove that.

Hi Joseph, maybe I misunderstood your question. I thought you were referencing specifically to Adam.
Even though these events appear to have happened in chronological order as they are recorded in the Bible, it is possible that the other men and women were the sons and daughters of Adam and Eve. Genesis 5:4 Adam lived 930 years before he died.
We do not know how much time had passed before Cain knew his wife. I believe the bloodline has a lot to do with the seed that God spoke about in Genesis 3:15, which we know is Christ. Something to consider!

Wife of Caine, and people that Caine was afraid that they'll avenge the killing of Abel, meaning there were other people besides the three of them.
Donna Williams's comment on 2020-08-20 05:38:49:
I believe that the word "suitable" to put it in simple terms means, that she was of the same kind as Adam. For every species in the animal kingdom, God created male and female for them to reproduce in the earth, however for Adam there was no female version of him.
Hence, God spoke, "it is not good that the man should be alone".....
Joseph Burger's comment on 2020-08-19 22:54:50:
My question referred to Gen.2v20.
Meaning of "suitable helper" in that sentence.
Does that mean (God) had a choice to choose from "other " women as helper or wife?

Mishael, I'll go to the store tomorrow, and continue to follow your advice. I'll let you know how it's going in a month or two. I pray that you have a wonderful day, everyday. God Bless You. :)
Mishael's comment on 2020-08-17 16:42:46:
I am so very happy to hear back from you;
And that things are feeling better for you.
Stress dumps harmful hormones in our bloodstreams. Stay calm with Jesus, in His Word.
Take biotin, which is a B vitamin that helps with the scalp. I keep products off my hair (gels & stuff) so my scalp can sweat and breathe.
I sound awful, huh? Lol
Perhaps, as our Faith grows bigger, so shall it be rewarded. Amen!

Mishael, are you the one that is praying and sent me wonderful advice concerning my loss of a lot of hair? I want to Thank You very much. My hair is growing little by little. I still have a few small bald spots but I'm claiming victory. I told you I printed two copies of what you sent me and I'll keep them forever. I pray everyday for you, that you will have the best day of your life. :). God Bless You. August 17, 2020
