The Adam’s “rib removal” concept, to start the female body, is a ludicrous delusion to hide where we came from.
We have spoken often about Jesus’ words that “God is a Spirit” and “spirit gives birth to spirit”. God, as a Spirit is FULLY SELF CONTAINED and needs no “partner” to reproduce.
He is what we call a HERMAPHRODITE – both genders contained in a single unit.
In Gen 1:26, Jesus is speaking with His Father regarding His upcoming parenthood. “Let us make man in OUR IMAGE”. They formed/created Adam’s body from the dust of the earth, and then squeezed into it a spirit that had been given birth to by it’s Father, Jesus. Jesus is the Father of all human spirits – he gave birth to every single one of us – which resulted in the 98.6 degree furnace blazing in your chest right now.
When God made Adam “in His image”, he built the body as a hermaphrodite – both genders built into one body. Adam (a single spirit) could reproduce independently, on his own, no partner needed.
Gen 2:20 – For Adam no suitable helper was found. So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs* and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib* he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
The key to understanding is, as usual, hidden in their WORDGAMES!! The answer is right there in the footnote* included, to clarify the word “rib” in both places.
*Or took part of the man’s side.
Yes, the FEMALE SIDE – including many unique traits – that Adam was originally designed to contain, were removed. He then transplanted the FEMALE HALF OUT of Adam to design a new body-style. This new body came complete with it’s own survival “tactics” inbuilt, to house this “side of Adam”. We know this new arrangement as the female human. Same key components as before, with a few details rearranged.
Hat’s off to ya’ Dad – you did a rockin’ job on that new design!!
