Man Created in the Image of God
וַיִּבְרָ֨א אֱלֹהִ֤ים ׀ אֶת־הָֽאָדָם֙ בְּצַלְמ֔וֹ בְּצֶ֥לֶם אֱלֹהִ֖ים בָּרָ֣א אֹת֑וֹ זָכָ֥ר וּנְקֵבָ֖ה בָּרָ֥א אֹתָֽם׃
“And God created man in His image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:27)
A primary understanding of the Biblical concept that Man is created in the “image of God”, as explained by the great rabbinic philosopher Maimonides, is that man possesses an ability of intellectual apprehension that no other physical creature possesses. Intellectual apprehension does not exist in animals, only in Man.
According to the Jewish Bible, the prophet Noah had three sons who with their wives reconstituted humanity after the Biblical Flood. The nature of civilization is hinted to in the Biblical descriptions of the three sons of Noach. The ability of intellectual apprehension has been especially manifested in the descendants of Shem and Yefet, two of the sons of Noah.
The Biblical Shem became the ancestor of the Semites and the Jews. The Jews gave the world the Bible and thus disseminated the concepts of ethical monotheism to the world that replaced the pagan barbarism that reigned in earlier ages. The Biblical phrase "Yaft Elokim Yefet" in Genesis hints at the concept that God will expand Yefet’s mind. The Biblical Yefet became the ancestor of the Europeans, including the Greeks, who greatly advanced science and philosophy.
The Red-Green Axis today is a worldwide alliance of powerful totalitarian ideologies, including Marxists, radical Islamists, and “progressive” Leftists including much of the current Democrat Party today. This unholy alliance is not only attempting to dismantle Western Civilization, but they are also attempting to suppress and destroy Biblical concepts such as Man being created in the image of God. Their goals are to devolve man to just another sophisticated animal and replace Western Civilization with barbarism.
Civilized people and nations must not allow the Red-Green Axis to succeed in their goal of dismantling Western Civilization and replacing it with barbarism.
