God, made Adam , in His image, and Adam flawed the image.
Able, Cain and Seth, were made in Adam's image. They proved to have great flaws.
As the " image " was further compromised, the flaws grew greater in our human character. How close to the image of God, can we now, claim to be?
It seems, to me, that we are so far removed, and so greatly flawed, that God, offered, the death of His own Son, to bring us back to Him........still, there are those who will not reach out to take the Redeeming hand.
As a collective humanity, we can not be much , in the way of God's image.
People, by nature, tend to take the path of least resisitance.............'the devil made me do it'..........we would be a better people, if we simply said, I messed up, got lost, strayed, and I need to find my way back......................
