What is God's image?
You think it's human?
We are like a reflection of the Godhead (as our moon is to the sun - see solar eclipse), and God has revealed that we are made in his image, by this
sign, and to the degree that he was able to experience his own creation in the form and likeness of a man, and reconcile everything back to himself
(placed under his feet).
Think of man as perched atop a mountain of cosmic evolution next to the eternal Godhead, and then we will understand the teachings of Jesus, namely
how "the kingdom of heaven is at hand".
We are consciousness, made by consciousness for consciousness to have a consciously aware experience imbued with freedom, and that's God "godding" so
yeah, in God's image, yes. From that perspective it's in accordance with something called a "tangled hierarchy" (see the works of Esher).
They too (other sentients) are made in his image, but in terms of the human phylos, being last or the most recent, we may very well be the first (at
the right hand of the eternal Godhead) in so far as we live in a non-local, holographic universe occurring through a process of cosmic evolution ie:
the latest and greatest new and improved.
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
~ Psalm 8:4
Our only problem is our failure to recognize our own nature in terms of precisely who and what we REALLY are as children of a loving and creative
In this sense Jesus, the mere presence of that spirit in human form occuring in human history, makes a bold statement about our true nature and
potentiality ie: as a model of authentic leadership.
