Your personal beliefs aside, The Bible claims that God created man in His own image AND likeness. If God created man like Himself, is cloning creation (or "playing God") a bad thing or a gift?

It isn't "playing God" when we make babies with sex. I don't see why it would be, making them with microscopes and whatever else...

My point is why would God ever need a penis?

If you were God, would you have only things you need?

If I were God, I think I would.

You basically wouldn't have anything, then. As an unnecessary creation of God, I'm kinda glad He made things He didn't need.

For what purpose, other than pleasure, would you give yourself something you don't need?

Doopy - we don't need to continue. I'm just saying nothing makes sense to me.
I do thank you for your patience:-)

Ms. Bird, if you ever want to talk about this further, all you have to do is let me know. I'll be happy to indulge you. :-)

Question: if God created man in his likeness, does it mean that God has a penis?

Funny, eb, but that was said before woman was created "out of the man." That original Image didn't necessarily have any sexual characteristics, or could have had both (androgynous). We can't know, so the question is unfortunately pointless. :-)

Ok, so alterations were made. Got it :)

God had a penis, back when He had a body. He may now, too. I'm not sure whether Jesus's ascended body exists all the time or whether He dons or doffs it like a hat...

The other answer is the penises we men call "ours" really belong to God anyway.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word became flesh.

Ok, you are speaking a foreign language to me. Tell me why God would ever have had a penis.

Jesus. Jesus was God incarnate, which means, in layman's terms, God with a body.

Why are we talking about God's penis?

Doopy Remedial Americanism

Because this is the Internet?

D - I'm not a believer because so much doesn't make sense. If Doopy can explain, it's helpful.

I thought Jesus was the son of God?

What would you like to know Ms. Bird?

I believe that two absolutely perfect omnipotent beings occupying the same universe would be indistinguishable. The members of the trinity (God the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit) differ from one another relationally, but are all God.

I'm not sure what to say to that.

I guess we can leave that part alone.
