Summary: It was GOD'S will that man had to multiply and fill the earth. Although Adam's genes were predominantly male genes, God HAD to suppress it so that He could make Eve....the modified version of man....SHE would be equipped to increase the human population.

Genesis 1:27 "....He created them MALE and FEMALE.”

Genesis 2:17 Then the LORD God said: "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper SUITABLE for him."

God created the heavens and ALL other life forms on earth. At THIS stage He decided that His creation was NOT complete….SOMETHING was missing….the presence of a life form that was a copy of Himself….man. Then God said: "Let Us make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." (Genesis 1:26). “….He created them MALE and FEMALE.” (Gen. 1:27).

The creation of man was God’s crown jewel and pride. Out of a scientific point of view, he was the dominant carrier of male genes. AFTER God brought ALL the animals to man so that he could name them, the Creator realized that not ONE of the animals He created was competitive for man as a mate. Then the LORD God said: "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper SUITABLE for him." (Gen. 2:17). The omnipotent (All Powerful) God continued with surgical precision to create a mate for man… man fell into a deep sleep. While he was sleeping, the Creator took ONE of his ribs and made a WOMAN out of it… THIS can’t be right. Adam was a male. WHY would God have the need to make a female from Adam…the OPPOSITE of himself? God blessed them; and God said to them: "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth…." (Genesis 1:28).

The law of genetics SPECIFICALLY dictates that the sex of the OFFSPRING would be determined by the dominant gene….Adam’s gene…male gene. Yet, the Creator deviated from the norm, and suppressed the dominant male gene in FAVOUR of the female gene. Was God exhausted of ALL the work He did in the SIX days of creation, and made an error by creating a female? DEFINITELY not! There are THREE reasons WHY God made a FEMALE instead of another MALE. In the FIRST instance He said that it was NOT good for man to be alone and that man needed a helper. In the SECOND instance God instructed man to MULTIPLY and to FILL the earth. Adam was NOT biologically equipped to bear an offspring. THIS lack would PREVENT God’s plan for humans to multiply and fill the earth. Because OUR creator is omniscient (All-Knowing), he made a TRUE copy of Adam, with a few changes. The MOST basic modification to Adam’s copy was to provide her with the ability to bear children and to breast-feed them… the ability which Adam clearly STILL lacks today.

God did NOT just create man like He did the animals. He created man in His OWN holy image and DEMAND of him to be obedient to HIM, to worship HIM alone, and to do HIS will. Man is NOT just ONE of God’s creations. He is THE creation of YHWH….a copy of Himself.

God is spirit and MUST be worshipped in spirit and in truth. Any OTHER way of worship would be degrading and insufficient. UNLIKE the rest of God’s earthly creations, man is BOUND by a code of morality, responsibility and ethics to live by GOD’S example. Our Creator took a rib from Adam (man) and created a copy of himself with MODIFIED abilities to MEET God’s requirements….to multiply and fill the earth. THIS is God’s NATURAL order of things. ANYTHING other than this would be an INSULT to God’s wisdom and will.
