176 - Adam 01 - Adam was created in the image of Elohim (God) and given commandments by God

Texts -- BIBLE: Genesis 1:26-31 ---- CHANGED in KORAN: Suras al-Baqara 2:30-33 -- al-Nisa' 4:1 -- al-An'am 6:95.165 -- al-Hijr 15:28 -- al-Israa' 17:70 -- al-Naml 27:62 -- Fatir 35:11.39 -- Ya Sin 36:72 -- Sad 38:71 -- al-Zumar 39:6 -- al-Zukhruf 43:13 -- al-Hujurat 49:13-14 -- Qaf 50:16 -- al-Rahman 55:3 -- al-Waqi'at 56:62 -- al-Mulk 67:15 -- al-Tin 95:4

Contrast 1 -- BIBLE: Elohim (God) created Adam in his image, in the image of Elohim (God) he created him, male and female he created them. (v 27) -- KORAN: Adam was NOT created in the image of Allah; NEITHER male NOR female were created in Allah's image. >> Meaning >> BIBLE: Incarnation of God is possible, because God created humans in his image. -- KORAN: Incarnation of Allah is NOT possible, because Allah did not create humans in his image.

Contrast 2 -- BIBLE: Elohim (God) said to them: ‘Be fruitful and multiply!’ (v 28) -- KORAN: Allah did NOT command Adam and his mate to procreate. >> Meaning >> BIBLE: A man can become a true father and his male child is his true son, because God created him in such a way that he can, without divine intervention, fulfill God's commandment to procreate. This establishes true fatherhood and sonship and thus makes it possible for us to meaningfully call God our Father and Christ his only begotten Son. -- KORAN: A male child is NEVER a true son of a father, and a man can NEVER truly become father, because Allah always directly creates the child born to him. This makes it in the Koran IMPOSSIBLE to call Allah Father and Christ his only begotten Son.
