Over the years, the nature of mankind portrays that he is implicitly created in a special way. The generally known concept of man depicts a ruler of the universe. Regardless of the race, color,tribe, gender, language and other seeming physical differences of man, man is still rated higher than animal everywhere in the world. This is explicitly seen in the biblical account of Genesis; man is directly referred to as the climax of God’s creation (Gen 1: 28-30). The murder of a man is blatantly frowned at (it even attracts ‘Capital Punishment’), but the death of any animal is explicitly permissible and not queried. The fact remains that gap of differences exists between man and every other creature God created in the word. Meanwhile, the striking difference that exists brings the argument of God’s image to limelight. The research makes a rethink on what ‘God’s image in man’ entails.
