I've just been readiing some info on another site which has raised yet another anomoly in the wmcog's teachings:- Supposedly we (Adam/Eve) are created in the image of God the Father and God the Mother ie. male/female, yet angels don't have gender, do they? So in whose image were they created? I could be just mixing things up in my head, so can someone explain please.

No verse says angels don’t, have gender,June 18, 2012 at 6:30 PM #46336
There’s examples of Angels like Michael and Gabriel. I don’t ever remember reading or being told about female Angels so this could suggest that Angels are male. Perhaps someone else could shed some more light on this. I believe that even the Angels that came to Mary and Joseph were also male. This could just be that when parts of the Bible were first recorded it was a male dominated society.June 18, 2012 at 7:40 PM #46337
Pretty much always accepted female angels myselfJune 18, 2012 at 8:44 PM #46338
So is the consensus erring on the side of 'angels' being male (or even all female)? If so, I'm now even more confused. Doesn't the wmscog teach that we were all angels in Heaven who sinned against God? Were we not all angels then? Were we all female/all male?June 18, 2012 at 9:21 PM #46339June 18, 2012 at 9:25 PM #46340

We were not angels before that sinned against God because the Bible tells us what happened to the angels that sinned against God. 2 Peter 2:4
For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment;

Just to throw a monkey wrench in here. Can anyone tell me what the gender of water is? How about a rock? Lets look at a cell, what is its sex? I can say with 100% certainty that based on the way God created everything that everything is not broke up into male and female.June 19, 2012 at 8:46 PM #46343
Yes not everything has gender but everything is male or female an individual within a group of things male and female is sometimes both, or we have things without gender at all. So we either have male and female hermaphroditic or neuter.

So, we are created to become one and in that oneness we are as close to perfect as we can be based on Gods design. Granted Satan has perverted this oneness and caused much distruction to come out of it. This is what he does! He takes the things of God and distorts them into a perversion of what they were intended to be.June 19, 2012 at 9:12 PM #46345
Satan is an excellent perverterJune 19, 2012 at 9:13 PM #46346
All is of 'God's' design? – even Satan – so therefore surely if you want to say that Satan is the cause of perversion and destruction, then surely, that too is of 'God's'design. Either all is of/from God – or it is not?!June 19, 2012 at 9:14 PM #46347
I totally agree Shimon.June 19, 2012 at 9:51 PM #46348
This reminds me of a service I heard once at my church. The pastor said something to this effect:
Satan wants to be God. The one thing that Satan cannot do is create. So instead, Satan attempts to distort God's creation.
