Please help with Geneses 1:26 from Greek bible
« on: March 29, 2018, 12:26:18 AM »
GEN  1: 26  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:

Does the original Greek text also denote 'us' and "to our liking"?

Hebrew and Greek both say it in plural, yes.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

Thanks for the answer. But on another note?  Where in the bible was God asked:   

" Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy."

Nowhere, a fellow user said this and I found it light-hearted.

I guess it depends on whether or not you consider pasadi's posts to be in the canon of scripture.
