Man named woman, but God named the race "Man"...

Error message

66clouds_cover This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. He created them male and female, and He blessed them and named them Man in the day when they were created. (Genesis 5:1,2)

(Tim, w/thanks to Eric W.) I'm not a fan of indices consisting of tag or word clouds as they've come to be used on blogs, but take a look at the helpful picture of the doctrines of Scripture this tool creates. Note particularly the prominence of 'son,' 'man,' and 'father' with no corresponding prominence of 'daughter,' 'woman,' and 'mother.'

Really, this only flows from the doctrine that God named Adam together with Eve and their descendants "man" or "adam." Not "eve" or "woman." And not "adameve' or "manwoman."

If all Scripture--every last word of It--is "God-breathed" and "profitable," what profit has our language and usage today made from the name of the race Scripture records God Himself giving us, let alone the frequency of its use in the sacred pages?
