said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image,
after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish
of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the
earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.

created man to be inferior in and amongst all of His creations. God
created man to rule over what He had created. Psalms 8 declares:
LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast
set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings
hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou
mightest still the enemy and the avenger. When I consider thy heavens,
the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast
ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man,
that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the
angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to
have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things
under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth
through the paths of the seas. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy
name in all the earth!
