The similarities that humans and God have include showing love, creating beauty, or reasoning on a higher level of thinking. Since the fall of Adam and Eve humans have been born into sin, but if they accept God then they are saved. Christians for centuries have debated the purpose of humans and why they were created. In Chapter 3: Wisdom in the Beginning states, “The creation of humanity in the image of God demonstrates God’s special relationship to humanity and God’s role for humanity” (Diffey, 2018).
