Difficulty: Since God created a woman out of a man to be his “helper,” does this indicate that women are not on equal par with men?
Explanation: God said, “ ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like ourselves’…male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:26-27). The woman was made in the same image and likeness of God as the man. Men were not given a more superior image of God, with God somehow creating women in a lesser image. Men and women equally share his image.
