IS MAN ONLY THE IMAGE OF GOD?:
In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
The Bible Answers :
The Old Testament (Jewish Torah) says that Both Men and Women are the Image of God:
Genesis 1:27 NIV So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Genesis 9:6 “Whoever sheds human blood, by humans shall their blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made mankind.
According to Paul (New Testament) only Man is the Image of God :
1 Corinthians 11:4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonours his head
1 Corinthians 11:7 NLT A man should not wear anything on his head when worshipping, for man is made in God’s image and reflects God’s glory. And woman reflects man’s glory.
We can clearly see that, the verse in 1 Corinthians 11:7 is Anti-Torah and Anti-God, Because
Firstly, head covering while worshipping is a commandment in Jewish Torah which All Prophets observed and Christ commanded his followers to observe it (See Matthew 5:17-20, Matthew 28:20)
See Exodus 28:37 , Exodus 29:6, Leviticus 16:4, Zechariah 3:5, Job 29:14, Leviticus 8:9, Ezekiel 24:17, Isaiah 61:10, Esther 2:17 etc
Secondly, Jewish Torah confirms both Men and Women are the image of God.
See Genesis 1:27 and 9:6
Thirdly major traditional Church leaders (Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican and Coptics) cover their head while worshipping and preaching, which is a denial of Paul’s command in the Corinthians and adherence to the traditions of the Torah and the Prophets way.
SO WHY CORINTHIANS (GREEK&ROMANS) CHANGED THE LAWS OF PROPHETS?:
Matthew 24:15 “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel–let the reader understand–
Daniel 7:25 NASB ‘He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.
Daniel 9:27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’he will put an end to sacrifice and offering (under the guise “Messiah/Jesus paid it all) . And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”
Comments: Under the guise Jesus paid it all, and as God in the flesh, the Spirit of Antichrist will appear in flesh as god in flesh impersonating as Christ, that’s why the greatest deceiver is known as Antichrist, whose spirit has been working for 1000s of years as “false Messiah” who deceive people by appearing as “Jesus Christ” with his false doctrines and vain worship methods around the world in all religions!
Peace be upon the Prophets and Messengers of Allah
