[Truth as Principle – Man’s oneness with God (Principle) is expressed in the wholeness of manhood and womanhood – one-in-all and all-in-one – and Soul as the Christ as the Christ within the Word as Christianity]
Genesis 1. 27. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him, male and female created He them.
Ideal man and woman
To emphasize this momentous thought, it is repeated that God made man in His own image, to reflect the divine Spirit. It follows that man is a generic term. Masculine, feminine, and neuter genders are human concepts. In one of the ancient languages the word for man is used also as the synonym of mind. This definition has been weakened by anthropomorphism, or a humanization of Deity. The word anthropomorphic, in such a phrase as “an anthropomorphic God,” is derived from two Greek words, signifying man and form, and may be defined as a mortally mental attempt to reduce Deity to corporeality. The life-giving quality of Mind is Spirit, not matter. The ideal man corresponds to creation, to intelligence, and to Truth. The ideal woman corresponds to Life and to Love. In divine Science, we have not as much authority for considering God masculine, as we have for considering Him feminine, for Love imparts the clearest idea of Deity.
[Think about it, if man is actually a synonym of mind then why are today’s Left (those who claim to be feminists or on the feminists’ side?) so against the word? Why do they think it is a horrible word and why do they sick the thought police on it and try to change words like manhole? I will go so far in saying that mentality could mean “mantality”. The reason why the Left is against the word has nothing to do with sexual inequality and everything to do with the anti-Christ.
