Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Genesis 2:15 Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and keep it.
C. S. Lewis wrote a lot of wonderful allegories about Christianity and one of the series was, “A Space Trilogy” and the middle book 2 was, “Perelandra”. This book was about a planet that had been created by God and the Adam and Eve as it were, had never fallen from grace and had been obedient to all that the Creator had said to them. Life was harmonious up until the time a spaceship arrives with a fallen man on board who was moved in his spirit by satan and had every intention of causing these inhabitants to be fallen like himself. This man was called an unman, thus every time I see a vehicle with the UN painted on it, I automatically think of what the unman had tried to do in this story. Unfortunately, what I see in the reality of events and the position of the United Nations admonishing good and rewarding evil, it holds true for me that they really are the unmen ruled by satan himself. Of course, this is only my opinion which I share.
