Do you actually read anything I've posted? I didn't say it, the Bible says it.
27 And God CREATED man in His own image, in the image of God He CREATED him; male and female He created them. (NAS)
I've just posted AGAIN a couple of days ago on the proper method of interpretation.
You've OBVIOUSLY read that I've posted that the proper metnod of Biblical Interpretation USED by the FAR MAJORITY of Bible interpreters is The Historical-Grammatical Method of Bible Interpretation
In it I gave clarification on the method.....
Another way to describe the LITERAL meaning of Scripture is that it EMBRACES the normal, everyday, understanding of the terms in the Bible. Words are given the meaning they NORMALLY HAVE in common communication. This speaks of the BASIC, NORMAL, or PLAIN WAY of interpreting a Bible passage.
REAL knowledgable Christians who know how to CORRECTLY INTERPRET SCRIPTURES "ALSO" ACKNOWLEDGE there are SPECIAL LITERARY METHODS in which the writers of Scripture used in writing the Bible. They were literal, similies, metaphors, Proverbs, Poetry, songs, parables, AND allegory.
So JB don't put words in my mouth ......When God CREATED MAN in His IMAGE and LIKENESS it is a SIMILIE meaning that MAN IS TO REFLECT who God is. If God is Spirit how does man reflect a penis?
