Is man made like God or does he become like God?




Is man made like or does like ?

PROBLEM: :27 says “God created man in His own image.” But in Genesis

3:22 God said, “the man has like one of Us, to know good and evil.” The

former seems to affirm that humans are made like God, and the latter appears to assert

that becomes like God.

SOLUTION: The two passages are speaking of two different things. is

speaking about a human virtue by creation, while Genesis 3 is referring to what he

by acquisition. The first passage refers to Adam and before the Fall, and the

last is referring to them the Fall. The former refers to their nature and the latter

to their state. By creation Adam did not know good and evil. Once he sinned, he

knew good and evil. Once these differences are understood, there is no conflict.
