Another spin-off from the JW thread. "He created them in His image, male and female He created them". Now it seems to me to be plain that the description "male and female" is directly linked to the concept of "image" in this verse, and thus God has both masculine and feminine characteristics. Others on the other thread have disagreed, saying that the "image" refers to purely spiritual matters (sinless, tripartite etc). Yet to me those concepts are not spelled out in this verse, yet "male and female" are explicit therein and to spiritualise the verse overthrows its meaning in a rather gnostic way. What say ye, brethren?
