Why are human beings male and female?
While people might think that this question is one for biologists, it was actually the focus of an international Bible seminar that I attended in South Korea last week.
I was one of more than 100 members of the World Mission Society Church of God from 25 countries — including Canada, the U.S., Australia, Singapore, Peru, Finland and England — who attended the event at the Go & Come Institute in Okcheon, Chungbook, along with about 700 locals.
Biblical evidence that supports the existence of a female Christian God was presented from the point of view of an aerospace engineer, an expert in international political relations and a professor with a phD in neuroscience.
Let us make man in our image, in our likeness
Most Christian churches believe in one God, commonly described in male terms as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, but the Church of God believes the Bible testifies that two Gods exist: God the Father and God the Mother.
In his keynote speech, General Pastor Kim Joo-cheol addressed one of the “enduring questions of the scripture” published by Reader’s Digest in the Mysteries of the Bible: Why does God say “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness,” during the creation in Genesis, instead of saying, “Let me?”
The church teaches that since the Bible testifies that men and women were both created in God’s own image, God actually has two images: male and female. In other words, there are two Gods – Heavenly Parents – who together created human beings in Their likeness.
The fact that there is no biological necessity for physical life to be given by mothers caused Deacon August Kruesi to wonder: what was God’s will in creating the human life system in this way?
In his presentation, the technical principal for aerospace at Aerojet Rocketdyne, a U.S. company that “provides propulsion and energetics technologies,” said that scientists have so far failed to discover the origin of life on Earth, or in space, while the Bible offers a clear answer.
While many people place their trust solely in science when they want to know where life came from, Mr. Kruesi pointed out that key steps in the “primordial soup” theory remain unexplained and impossible to recreate, and scientists have yet to find any signs of life beyond our planet.
Mr. Kruesi argued that God’s divine nature and the existence of God the Mother, the source of eternal life, is clearly shown through all creatures on Earth that require both male and female to reproduce. He believes that God created the world this way to testify to the existence of both a female Creator, and a male Creator.
Scientists have discovered that mitochondria — known as the energy factories of cells — are only passed down through the maternal line. God made it so that the “power source” for reproduction comes from mothers in order to further testify to the existence of a life-giving spiritual mother, Destinee L. Chambers said.
