I am an avid reader. I once read two or three romance novels per week, but I am currently reading non-fiction books that have to do with different cultures and their religions. My interest is and has always been to understand where we came from and what our purposes are in life.
I have attend various bible studies from different religions and have always received the same answer when I asked, “Who was God talking to when he said let US make man in our own image.” (Genesis: 1:26) I have found that when people do not know the answer they resort to: It’s a mystery; or It’s the trinity, he is talking to himself (the father, son, and holy spirit)… I decided to find the answers on my own by doing research, and I sure have found a lot that I wasn’t expecting.
