In Genisis: 26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Just to add a masonic tone: 21 The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22 And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever." 23 So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.
We have heard the Phrase 'Vengeance in mine sayeth the Lord' justice particularly in the old testament was swift and awful.

IMO. I would think that the "our" is the spirit,soul,and body of the divinity on a smaller scale. Does that mean that He is all those negative vices? No, it means at times I can be. Freemasonry gives me the chance to increase in virtue and decrease in my vices. To draw closer and form a union with the God of my beliefs. Again, I.M.O. Thanks ;D
